Serbia optimistic to progress after Sunday win

Serbia got off to a good start on Sunday with a well deserved 1-0 win over Costa Rica. Their star youngster, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, absolutely terrorised the Costa Rica defence with his physicality and skill, but it was Roma left back Aleksandr Kolarov who settled the tie in the second half. This puts them in a very promising position for qualification, although it’s this match that could prove the most crucial to their chances.

Switzerland opened their campaign with an even better result. They faced off with pre-tournament favourites Brazil, but thanks to some excellent tactics and execution they took a deserved 1-1 draw away from the South American giants. Defensively they were excellent against that star studded side, although the fact that they fouled Neymar alone ten times is an indication as to how they played.

Serbia won’t be an easy team to beat though. They are a side filled with talent, and despite their talents being defensive they have managed to score in 12 of their last 13 games. However, they have conceded in seven of those games.

This makes a Both Teams to Score bet look very promising, so we’re backing that.
