Brazil will be without Neymar for their second group-stage match at the 2022 World Cup, and the second against European opposition.
The Paris-Saint Germain superstar was heavily involved in Brazil’s opening 2-0 victory over Serbia, but was forced to leave the field after a bad ankle injury.
In his absence, it was Tottenham’s Richarlison who was the hero, scoring two goals — the second a spectacular acrobatic kick.
Switzerland also began their World Cup campaign with victory, narrowly seeing off Cameroon 1-0 in a tight affair. And Granit Xhaka, Xherdan Shaqiri and company will fancy their chances of frustrating Brazil in Doha on Monday.
Here’s all the information you need about the game, when it kicks off, and how to watch it live in the major global territories:

Group G scenarios
A victory for either side will ensure they have qualified for the knockout stages. A draw will benefit them both, too, especially if Cameroon and Serbia draw in their game to be played earlier on Monday, leaving both Brazil and Switzerland on four points, and the other two on one apiece.
Defeat for Brazil and a win for either Cameroon or Serbia will put Switzerland firmly in control of the group, with Brazil needing a result in their final game.
If Switzerland lose and Serbia win, those two nations will play out a straight shootout in the all-European game which closes out this group.
