Brazil wary of Serbia aerial threat

MOSCOW Russia (Xinhua) -- Brazil will be wary of the aerial threat posed by Serbia when the teams meet in their final World Cup Group E match here, Selecao coach Tite said on Tuesday.

The five-time world champions have been instructed to take extra care to avoid conceding free kicks in dangerous areas during Wednesday’s match at Spartak Stadium.

“Their aerial characteristics are strong but they also have a lot of technical quality,” Tite told a press conference.

“We have the ability to neutralize that but we need to avoid dangerous situations near goal, crosses. Football is like that: in some areas we win, in others we lose.”

Group leaders Brazil need only a draw to guarantee their place in the round of 16, but they will be seeking an emphatic win to be sure of top spot. The South American side could drop to second even if they win, depending on the result of the match between second-placed Switzerland and Costa Rica.

Meanwhile, Serbia must win to progress to the first knockout stage without relying on others. The European outfit could also advance with a draw, if Switzerland lose by more than a goal to Costa Rica.

Tite said his starting lineup would be the same as the one used in Brazil’s 2-0 victory over Costa Rica in Saint Petersburg on Friday.
