Brazil were in control for 82 minutes without Neymar, but the five-time world champions were saved by a 1-0 victory over Switzerland to reach the round of 16 at the 2022 World Cup on Monday.

Casemiro landed a right-footed shot created by Rodrigo’s smart ball for the first time, just as Brazil looked to be headed for a disappointing goalless draw. Vinicius Junior put the ball into the net shortly before Casemiro did, but the goal was ruled out for offside on a build-up attack in an all-too-rare moment of fluidity.

The victory takes Brazil (6 points) to the playoffs, where they are playing for the 20th time in a row at the World Cup. Brazil’s only group stage failure came in 1930 at the first World Cup.

The defeat is far from competitive for Switzerland (3 points – 2nd place), which needs at least a draw (or better a victory) against Serbia on Friday.

No Neymar, no ideas

With Neymar (ankle) out for at least the rest of the group stage (possibly), Tite decided to bring Fred into the team and push Lucas Paquetu higher against Switzerland. The Brazilians have led at times brilliantly with Neymar playing Richarlison’s strong latency and connection play, making swift runs into space with a busy central defender (or two).

As expected, there was a gap between the midfielder and the forward. The Brazilians were unable to create chances through the center of the field, limiting themselves to encouraging crosses into the penalty area, where the tall Swiss central defender cleared the ball easily. The stats and analytics really highlight the influence of Neymar and the difficulties Brazil have had without him on the pitch since the first half (and little has changed in the second half)…

Key storylines, players to keep an eye on

Brazil will not have Neymar this time around and likely for the remainder of the group stage as the frequently fouled magician felt the sting of Serbian tackles in the first leg. The Brazilians have had to play without their captain before and have plenty of attacking opportunities, but who will join Richarlison to score goals in attack without Ney.

The Swiss have every opportunity to play Brazil, but how physically they want to do it for the favorites? Granit Xhaka will be one of those who will watch as the underdogs try to balance the desire to get ahead with the danger of doing so against a strong Brazil.
