Ones to watch

Star – Aleksandar Mitrovic: Serbia’s all-time record goalscorer – with a terrific strike-rate of 50 goals in 76 caps – the lethal Fulham striker will be going into this World Cup in red-hot form given his start to the season in the Premier League. In a side with numerous attacking top-class outlets, Mitro will likely get the service he craves from out wide. He also scored in the last World Cup in Russia, in the 2-1 loss to Switzerland.

Breakout talent – Dusan Vlahovic: The 22-year-old was closely linked with a move to Arsenal in January before he moved to Juventus from Fiorentina. He also has a brilliant strike-rate – eight in 16 appearances – for his country and will be looking to shine at what will be his first major tournament.

Prediction

It’s a tricky one to call between Serbia and Switzerland for second in the group, with Brazil the clear and obvious favourites for top spot. It could well come down to the final match between the two countries but despite Serbia’s impressive qualifying progression, Switzerland’s superior tournament record and victory in 2018 gives them the edge over the Serbs. Knocked out in the group stage.
