Brazil, king of the group stage! Equaled Germany in a statistic

Everyone was expecting and uncertain about what Brazil could do in their World Cup debut. But without a doubt, Brazil did enforce its candidacy as the favorite to win the World Cup and it showed it only in the opening game of the World Cup. A lit Richarlison managed to open and close a game that was more than complex to break the zeros during the first part.

With shots on the post and an impressive number of attempts by Brazil to open the scoring, Serbia attacked little during the 90 minutes. Everyone was encouraged to disturb the portico of the great 2-meter goalkeeper, Milonkovic-Savic, but only at Richarlison’s feet was the chance to break the zeros. And not just break them, but put the advantage even higher.

However, the result must be mentioned, despite the great statistics that Brazil achieved, it went into the background due to concern and high alert with Neymar who was very complicated with his right ankle due to a hard blow with a Serb. We will have to wait for the evolution, but his crying does not look good at all in the World Cup that has just started.

Returning to sports and the impressive numbers left by Brazil, according to Mister Chip, the Brazilians managed to match Germany in an important statistic. The kings of the group stage are declared, as both the Teutons and now the South Americans reap 16 group stage matches without losing a consecutive number. Germany’s streak began in 1990 and culminated in 2010 when they fell against, precisely, Serbia by the slightest difference on June 18, 2010.

Brazil managed to reach those 16 group stage matches without losing after losing on the last day of the first instance against Norway in 1998, from then on, they did not know defeat again. They could overtake Germany if they beat Switzerland in the next game.
