Brazil and Portugal kick off their World Cup campaigns against tough opponents.

The World Cup enters its fifth day as teams from Groups G and H lock horns with their opponents.

As we prepare for an exciting Thursday, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming games.

Let’s check out three betting tips for the group stage’s 5th matchday.

Goals likely on both sides when Brazil take on Serbia

Brazil come into the tournament as one of the main favourites to win the title.

The Selecao will start their World Cup campaign with a match against Serbia, who reached the tournament after incredible attacking displays in the qualifiers.

Brazil’s star-studded attacking line will most likely find enough chances to score against Serbia. 

However, in-form forwards such as Dusan Vlahovic and Aleksandar Mitrović will also have a good chance of finding the back of the net in the upcoming game.

Back Uruguay to beat South Korea

The Asian teams have found a wonderful start to the Qatar tournament. Following Saudi Arabia’s 2-1 win over Argentina, Japan stunned Germany with the same result on Wednesday.

South Korea will look to emulate those teams against a less powerful side. But we expect Uruguay to beat them at the Education City Stadium.

South Korean have struggled defensively in their recent displays. On the other hand, Uruguay enjoys having a host of top-class options upfront.

The Asian giants might try to hurt their opponents with counter-attacks. But the likes of Luis Suarez, Darwin Nunez, and Federico Valverde will most likely outscore them anyway.

Don’t expect goals when Switzerland face Cameroon

Switzerland hope to repeat their brilliant Euro 2020 form in another major tournament.

Their match against Cameroon is already a must-win contest, given the tough competition in Group G.

We expect Switzerland to have the upper hand against their African opponents. 

However, both sides will most likely stay cautious of each other’s counter-attack, trying to gain control of the midfield.

Given Cameroon’s current defensive form, we don’t expect any of the two sides to find too many goalscoring opportunities.
