Brazil vs. Switzerland head-to-head history at the 2022 World Cup

|

When Brazil and Switzerland square off on Monday, they will have the chance to clinch a spot in the round of 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

In their previous match, Tite’s team defeated Serbia in an exciting 2-0 triumph, while Murat Yakin’s team defeated Cameroon by a razor-thin margin of 1-0.

The match between Brazil and Switzerland on Monday at the Stadium 974 will be their 10th meeting overall but only their third in competitive play.

The teams first met at the 1950 World Cup’s group stage, where they were forced to settle for a split of the points after a 2-2 tie.

The South Americans led 2-1 at halftime after to goals from Alfredo, Baltazar, and Jacques Fatton in the first half. In the second half, Fatton scored his second goal of the match to even the score.

Thereafter came a run of seven straight international friendly, with Brazil winning three and its European rivals only managing two victories.

The most recent meeting between these two teams was at the 2018 World Cup, and due to a score of 1-1, neither team could win.

The day’s goal scorers were Steven Zuber and Philippe Coutinho, however neither will play this time because they were both left off of their respective teams’ rosters.
