Team News
The big news coming out of the Brazil camp in the aftermath of the Serbia game is that Neymar will miss the rest of the group stage after suffering an ankle ligament injury in the latter stages of the match.

Considering that the Paris Saint-Germain player is given a free role for his national side, Tite may need to make some tactical adjustments with him missing, so it could give a chance for midfielders like Fred to come in.

Right-back Danilo will also miss the rest of the group stage with a similar injury, potentially opening the door for Dani Alves to appear in a World Cup match for the first time since 2014.

Real Madrid's Eder Militao is probably the more likely man to come in on the right-hand side of defence though.
Brazil possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Eder Militao, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Alex Sandro; Casemiro, Fred, Paqueta; Raphinha, Richarlison, Vinicius Junior

The change in formation for Switzerland means there is no longer room for Fabian Schar to start as a third centre-back, with the duo of Nico Elvedi and Manuel Akanji preferred over the Newcastle United man.

Denis Zakaria was not even brought off the bench given he has had a difficult year with both Juventus and Chelsea.

There were no major surprises in Yakin's selection overall though, and he is unlikely to change much for this fixture.
Switzerland possible starting lineup:
Sommer; Widmer; Akanji, Elvedi, Rodriguez; Freuler, Xhaka, Sow; Shaqiri, Embolo, Vargas
Prediction: Brazil 1-0 Switzerland
