Brazil face tough World Cup opener against Switzerland, says Chapuisat


The match is to be played at 7:00pm (Nigerian time)

The Selecao are favourites to win the game against Vladimir Petkovic's team, but the former national team star believes it will be surprisingly tight.

Brazil may be one of the favourites to win the 2018 World Cup, but Neymar and Co. are in for a surprisingly difficult start to the competition when they take on Switzerland, Stephane Chapuisat says.


The Selecao approach the campaign in Russia aiming for a sixth world title and to eradicate the memories of their semi-final exit of 2014, when they lost 7-1 to Germany.
Brazil kick off their campaign against Switzerland and are expected to top Group E ahead of Sunday's opponents, Costa Rica and Serbia.
