Serbia 0 - 2 Brazil - Match Report & Highlights

28 June 2018

Brazil booked their passage to the World Cup round of 16 as Group E winners after they comfortably beat Serbia 2-0 at the Otkrytiye Arena on Wednesday.

It was another match where Brazil created lots of chances, but they weren't particularly clinical in front of goal.

For most of the first half, Brazil couldn't break through Serbia's compact back line.

Brazil took a while to find their stride against a physical Serbian side who briefly rattled their illustrious rivals, but once Paulinho put them ahead after 36 minutes they always looked comfortable and Silva's 68th-minute header settled it.

Tite's team went into the game knowing a draw would be enough to see them through, while the Serbs needed a win to guarantee progression for them to the last 16 in Russian Federation. He said he's learned so much since then, leaving Tottenham for a spell in China before joining Barcelona. "I have to be aware of the evolution I have undergone in these last four years".

Brazil had an early setback when left back Marcelo was substituted in the 10th minute, limping off the field.

In a week in which numerous pre-tournament favourites have struggled, Brazil gave a very assured performance, particularly in the first half.

Brazil have stuttered through their first two matches, drawing with the Swiss before late goals from Philippe Coutinho and Neymar downed Costa Rica. "It was really hard for us to play Brazil, it just a higher class of opponent", Matic said.

Antonio Rukavina, who started in place of the experienced Branislav Ivanovic, saw his shot pushed into the danger area by Alisson and the goalkeeper was relieved to see Silva stop Mitrovic nodding the loose ball home.

Serbia again set off alarm bells moments later, but some desperate Brazil defending was enough to keep them out.

Silva popped up just at the right time for Brazil, and not only in defense.
