Why Serbia is a good play versus United States

The Serbs didn’t have a fantastic World Cup tournament. But Serbia didn’t play horrible soccer. The 0-2 loss to Brazil makes sense since the Brazilians had entered the WC the tournament chalk.

Serbia played great in the 3-3 victory over Cameroon. The 2-3 loss to Switzerland was a decent performance. Heading into this, Serbia has shown it can hang, and even beat, teams on the United States’ level.

Why United States is a good play versus Serbia

The United States made it to the knockout stage, which is all you can ask from a team that just wasn’t as good as many of the other World Cup participants.

Team USA had no chance versus the Netherlands, one of the top squads at the 2022 World Cup. Beating Iran 1-0, and drawing with England and Wales, showed the United States has enough talent to beat a team like Serbia.

Final Betting Analysis: United States vs Serbia

With so much other soccer going on, neither team projects to start their top players. In that sense, the United States for sure is the pick to win.

The problem Serbia has is the team depends on players like Kostic, Lukic, and Tadic. Serbia’s number 10, Dusan Tadic, plays for Ajax in the Dutch Eredivisie.

Filip Kostic and Dusan Vlahovic play for Juventus. Aleksandar Mitrovic plays for Fulham in the Premier League.

If Serbia hit the pitch with their very best players, no doubt, they’d be difficult to beat. But the Serbs can’t play their stars in a meaningless friendly when those star players mean so much to their club teams.

So although the United States will be without Christian Pulisic and maybe a couple of other UEFA League players, the U.S. should field more first-string talent than Serbia does. Also, home pitch advantage is meaningful. The United States plays well enough to win this match.
