Brazil and Serbia hope to reach the knockout round of the World Cup finals on Wednesday in Group E finals.
Brazil scored a dramatic victory against Costa Rica twice in stoppage time to secure all three points. Serbia fell heartbreakingly to Switzerland when Xherdan Shaqiri conceded a late goal and significantly reduced his hopes of progressing. If the Serbs defeat Brazil, they will come through, although there are other ways they can go forward, depending on what happens in the Swiss group final against Costa Rica. After the surprising departure of Germany after the lost game against South Korea, Brazil will certainly be on guard, hoping to avoid the same fate as the defunct champions.
Gabriel Jesus put pressure on Brazil early on and acquitted on the left Goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic only needed goal-scoring in the fourth minute
In the tenth minute, Brazil suffered a major setback when superstar Marcelo retired a violation of the game. He was replaced by Filipe Luis.
Brazil continued pressure despite Marcelo's absence and Neymar almost in the 25th minute. Gabriel Jesus managed to push the ball through a defender where Neymar engaged him at the near post. He tried to get him into the far post from an acute angle, but Stojkovic had a good hand and headed the ball well over the mark.
Brazil took the lead Paulinho in the 35th minute. Barcelona midfield player Philippe Coutinho's team-mate put a beautiful pass over the top and fired a low shot over advancing Stojkovic to make it 1
Neymar made a sensational 2-0 victory in the second half of injury time in the first half. He had plenty of room to shoot a curling ball from a distance of 20 meters and almost exploit the opponent's upper 90's to arch far from the post.
