World Cup Day 4 Predictions: Group E and Germany vs Mexico

Germany vs Mexico is the talk of the town for Day 4 at the World Cup. But don’t sleep on Brazil vs Switzerland. Switzerland had a solid performance in European qualifying and shouldn’t roll over against a loaded Brazil side. Costa Rica will look to build off its Cinderella performance in 2014 as it takes on a Serbia team that enters the tournament with a lot of confidence. 

As always, here are the picks from Connor Fleming (@conmanfleming), Bryce Badwan (@bbadss) and Travis Yoesting (@travisyoesting) for what figures to be a fun day in Russia. 

Day 4 World Cup Predictions

Costa Rica vs Serbia

Connor: Serbia: "I will show you fear in a handful of dust." -Aleksandar Mitrovic

Bryce: Serbia: Serbia have been putting together some nice results and I think they'll get a big 3 points to open the tournament.

Travis: Draw - Neither team wants to lose its opener but neither team does enough to win.

Germany vs Mexico

Connor: Draw - Landing Germany right off the bat is really the only time you'd want to see them, and I think this plays out like Brazil-Mexico in 2014.

Bryce: Germany - I hope I'm wrong. I won't even care. I want Mexico, but I can't pick against Germany. 

Travis: Germany - Mexico won't be able to keep up with the firepower of the reigning champion.

Brazil vs Switzerland

Connor: Brazil - Neymar welcomes everyone to the Neymar Show by completing something like 10 dribbles.

Bryce: Brazil - It's Neymar's first real match back since injury and he's playing with people he actually likes. The Selecao get it done. 

Travis: Brazil - Brazil will get a bit nervy, compounded by strong defending from Switzerland, but Neymar and Co. eke out a win.
