26′ Counter Attack

Serbia has a chance! Brazil loses possession, and Tadic pounces, crossing it in for Mitrovic. Alisson jumps over and catches the ball before it can reach the Serbian striker’s head.

28′ Big Chance

This would have been one of the best chances Brazil could have had, but Serbia came up with a big save. Silva sent in a great through ball, but Milinkovic-Savic got low and swiped the ball away from Vinicius’s feet. What a fantastic save!

33′ Neymar Attack

As Neymar tries to keep possession of the ball, Lukic skids in from behind to take him down.

41′ Big Chance

With the keeper out of position, a big chance for Brazil. Luka Milenkovic reaches a ball over the top and kicks it against his chest, giving Vinicius a breakaway on goal. Milenkovic recovers quickly with an acrobatic tackle.

54′ Good Attack

Brazil continues to press, with a fantastic last-ditch tackle from Pavlovic. He timed it perfectly, as it could have easily been given as a penalty.

Brazil certainly had more of the ball and better chances in the first half, but Serbia did well to defend against them. Raphinha will regret that he didn’t score when he had a great chance after some good work between himself and Paqueta.
