Five-time world champions Brazil would be looking to head forward to round 16 of the ongoing 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup, where they will lock horns with Serbia in the third match of Group E at Spartak Stadium on Wednesday.

The Thiago Silva-led side will be heading into the match on the back of a thrilling 2-0 win against Costa Rica that was 0-0 at the 90th minute. They have played a 1-1 draw against Switzerland in their opening clash of the tournament.

Currently, Brazil is sitting on top of the table with four points and will easily enter the knockout round if they beat Serbia in Wednesday's clash.
