It will be the super challenge between Brazil And Serbia to close the picture of the first day of the group stage of Qatar 2022. The green-and-gold are considered among the biggest favorites to win the World Cup, but it will be difficult to get the better of a tough opponent like Stojkovic’s team.
The kick-off for Brazil-Serbia is at 20:00 (Italian time) on Thursday 24 November.
Brazil-Serbia will be visible exclusively on Rai1 via Smart TV, console (PS4, PS5 or XBOX One), in live streaming on tablets and smartphones thanks to the RaiPlay app or directly on the browser via your PC.

The news in Brazil
So much quality that characterizes – as always – Brazil. For his debut in the group stage, Tite will line up his players with a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Juventus players Danilo and Alex Sandro playing in defence. In the center instead there will be Thiago Silva and Marquinhos, while in the midfield the coach prefers the muscles of Fred and Casemiro. The trio of attacking midfielders who will support the lone striker Richarlison will be made up of Raphinha, Neymar and Vinicius.
BRAZIL (4-2-3-1): Alisson; Danilo, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Alex Sandro; Fred, Casemiro; Raphinha, Neymar, Vinicius jr; Richardson. Technical Commissioner: Tite.
What’s new in Serbia
Stojkovic has called up so many Serie A players that in some ways we could speak of “Ital-Serbia”. In fact, the two Milinkovic-Savic, Milenkovic, Lukic, Kostic and Vlahovic come from our league: all of these will start from the first minute in the delicate match against the cariocas. The presence of Tadic is also certain, while in attack, in addition to Vlahovic, Mitrovic will also play.
SERBIA (3-4-1-2): V. Milinkovic-Savic; Veljkovic, Milenkovic, Pavlovic; Zivkovic, Lukic, S. Milinkovic-Savic, Kostic; Tadic; A. Mitrovic, Vlahovic. Technical Commissioner: Dragan Stojkovic.
Super favorite Brazil will be expected to experience a baptism of fire in Qatar 2022 as they will have to deal with a national team full of talent like Serbia. A nervous start to the match is therefore expected for both teams, aware that this is already decisive for the passage to the second round. Despite this, Tite’s team will find a way to breach the opposing resistance.
