Brazil World Cup odds
2013 had been a particularly poor year for the Brazilians having lost to England and drawn four of their six other matches. However, there were no signs of that during the Confederation Cup in front of their home crowds as they won all of their five matches and lifted the trophy for the fourth time. Neymar stole the show, proving exactly why he was sought after by Barcelona during the summer, whilst Fred was another stand out performer, scoring two goals in the final as they brushed aside the world and European champions Spain with ease.
Expectation will be higher than ever in 2014, especially following this year’s Confederations Cup performance, with Brazil’s last World Cup win coming in 2002. They have failed to reach the semi-final stage two years in a row following three successive World Cup finals between 1994 and 2002 and risk not reaching the semi-final three competitions in a row for just the second time in their history.
Brazil continue to boast world class players such as Neymar, Oscar, Lucas Moura, Hulk, Fred, David Luiz and Dani Alves, to name a few. Neymar will have had a season at Barcelona following his big money move to the Spanish champions, whilst the majority of Brazil’s players will be competing at the highest level within Europe. Fred and Neymar are both amongst the favourites in the Golden Boot betting market.
