Brazil Take Final Chance To Impress

Brazil rounded off their preparations for the World Cup in Russia with a 3-0 win over Austria, with Gabriel Jesus, Neymar and Philippe Coutinho all finding the net in an impressive performance from the 9/2 tournament favourites. Tite’s side look so much stronger than the team that was humiliated by Germany in the semi-finals four years ago and with Jesus and Coutinho backed up by Roberto Firmino, Willian and Douglas Costa, they will not be forced to rely solely on the talents of Neymar as they did before he suffered a serious back injury last time around.

Neymar, who scored Brazil’s second goal after an impudent piece of fancy footwork, is a best price of 11/1 with Ladbrokes to win the Golden Boot, while Jesus can be backed at 16/1 with Bet365.

Bet365 are offering Neymar to win the Golden Boot and Brazil to win the tournament as a double at odds of 25/1, or you can get 100/1 with several firms about Coutinho in the same bet.

Also of interest is the Golden Ball market, for the tournament’s best player as nominated by Fifa, which Neymar leads at odds of 8/1 across the board. Jesus is at 25/1 with William Hill, with Coutinho a 33/1 shot with both William Hill and Bet365.
