Hey Friends! The World Cup fever is on.

The Brazil versus Switzerland match ended in a draw. It was a great game. Brazil scored within 20 minutes of the match while Switzerland levelled the score at the 50th minute of the match. Brazil’s Philippe Coutinho and Switzerland’s Steven Zuber were the scorers for the day.

Key Insights:

  • Switzerland have lost only one of their last 23 matches, a 2-0 defeat to Portugal in October, 2017.
