Austria vs Brazil Betting Tip
Austria vs Brazil | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Brazil and their players are very motivated to win the World Cup title. After a huge failure four years ago and a nightmare against Germany, the whole nation has only one thing on their mind, and that is to get the trophy this time. It is why Brazilians started preparing very intensively, picking tough opponents. Austria is one of them. This European state defeated the above mentioned Germans several days ago, after an incredible comeback in the second 45 minutes. Anyone who beats die Mannschaft is a worthy rival.
Cariocas are not calculating no matter who they play against. Whether that is Croatia, Russia or Costa Rica, they will always go full speed ahead. One loss in latest 15 matches can confirm what are we talking about. Their rivals on the other side, started preparing a new team for the future, the minute they found out that Russia became unreachable. And the latest matches are suggesting that they are on the right path.
Check this data out. Austria has seven straight wins. In the majority of them, they netted at least twice, and indeed this is an attacking-minded team, who likes to play offensive. Among the nations whom they defeated since the October of the previous year are Serbia, Uruguay, Russia, and Germany. You have to admit it is a nice list. The mentality and the style of play they prefer, are resembling Germany’s, which is why probably Brazil wanted to play against them. The key player is Marko Arnautovic, who has been linked with Man Utd in the last few days.
What can we say that you already don’t know about the Brazilians? Maybe this. Most of the people think that Brazil plays offensive football, with many chances and incredible beauty. But nobody recognizes that they have one of the best defenses in the world at the moment. Since Tite arrived at the bench, Cariocas are mostly relying on defense. For example, they allowed only one goal in the latest seven matches. Did any of you notice that? The opponents were top-class nations, Germany, England, Croatia, Chile etc. So when betting on the games in which they play, have in mind this fact. Someone might say that Neymar and Coutinho are the key players of this assembly, but the truth is that Casemiro and Paulinho influence the most.

Austria vs Brazil Top Betting Tip: Brazil (2-1)
We really expect a nice and entertaining game at Ernst Happel Stadion. The Austrians are not going to defend, and neither are Brazilians. The hosts have a huge motive to prove that they deserve a spot among the best teams in the world, and to extend the streak of excellent results. However, they do not have a quality to defeat five-time world champs, and the best they could do is to score and make this game more exciting. Brazil will win, but for all of you who like playing on goals, be sure to put some money on high-efficiency, like over 2.5. Final prognosis, Austria vs Brazil, 1-2.
