England v Brazil: Can Three Lions build on solid Germany performance?

| 14.11.2017

Buoyed by their 0-0 draw versus Germany on Friday night, England continue their World Cup preparations by hosting Brazil.

It will be another tough test for Gareth Southgate’s men, and our traders make the Three Lions 16/5 outsiders for what would be a fifth win versus the five-time world champions.

The visitors are 3/4 favourites, with the draw 12/5.

Five players made their international debuts against Germany, with Jordan Pickford and Ruben Loftus-Cheek impressing.

England will have to build on that performance from Friday if they’re to get a result against the South Americans though.

Brazil waltzed through their qualifying group to book their spot in Russia.

After losing their opening game to Chile, Selecao went unbeaten through the remainder of the campaign, topping the table by a comfortable 10 points.

They’ve lost only three of their last 28 fixtures, while their one loss in 21 away games is arguably even more impressive.

But Brazil have failed to win on each of their last three visits to Wembley, so the draw could be the one to be on.

Jamie Vardy kept the German defence busy, and 6/1 says he scores first.

The Leicester City striker is behind a trio of Brazilian forwards in the goalscorer market though.

A certain Neymar is 10/3 favourite to bag the opener.

The value pick however, could be Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus. The 20-year-old top-scored for Brazil in qualifying, and is 7/2 to break the deadlock.

Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino is 4/1.

This will be the 26th meeting between the two sides, and only twice before has there been a 0-0.

So we should see a goal or two. Both teams have netted in five of the last six meetings, and 8/11 says that run stretches to six in seven.
