Monday's Sport: Favourites face unbeaten test without star man

The highlights of Monday's sporting action will centre on the World Cup with the completion of the second round of group matches in Qatar, with tournament favourites Brazil back in action.

There is of course plenty of sporting action away from football with Snooker's finest heading back to Glasgow for the Scottish Open, while there is racing to come from Catterick, Kempton and Wolverhampton - and all the action can be followed on bet365's Sports Live Streaming platform.

Samba stars back in action

What: Brazil v Switzerland, World Cup 
Where: Stadium 974, Doha, Qatar 
When: 16:00, Monday 28th November 
How to watch: ITV1 
Odds: Brazil 4/9, Draw 10/3, Switzerland 7/1

Brazil started the World Cup as favourites and their impressive opening performance in beating Serbia 2-0 has seen them cut into 5/2 for a record-extending sixth crown.

The win did come at a cost as Neymar has since been ruled out of the rest of the group stages, although Richarlison enhanced his burgeoning Selecao reputation with a brace, and the Tottenham forward is now 15/2 to finish as the top goalscorer.

Brazil will be looking to take control of Group G on Monday by beating Switzerland, who also won their tournament opener with a 1-0 victory over Cameroon.

The Swiss have never won their first two games at a World Cup and are big outsiders at 7/1 to make it happen in Qatar.

Serbia can finally show some teeth

What: Cameroon v Serbia, World Cup 
Where: Al Janoub Stadium, Al Wakrah, Qatar 
When: 10:00, Monday 28th November 
How to watch: ITV1 
Odds: Cameroon 17/4, Draw 13/5, Serbia 8/11

The other game in Group G kicks off the day's proceedings in the World Cup, with both sides desperate for the win.

Serbia arguably drew the short straw when they were drawn to face Brazil first up and they were unable to muster a single effort at goal in that 2-0 defeat, but there will be a different kind of pressure on their shoulders as they go into this game as 8/11 favourites.

What effect that will have on the result remains to be seen but they will surely at least have chances against a side that were narrowly denied by the Swiss in their opener.

With both teams having been defeated in the opener, the pressure is on to chalk up their first points of the tournament, although a second defeat will not necessarily be terminal - providing there is a winner in the other game.

Black Stars looking for payback

What: South Korea v Ghana, World Cup 
Where: Education City Stadium, Doha, Qatar 
When: 13:00, Monday 28th November 
How to watch: BBC1 
Odds: South Korea 31/20, Draw 21/10, Ghana 2/1

Ghana may feel that luck was against them in their opener as a rather dubious penalty saw them fall behind in their first game against Portugal, while a late slip with the goal at their mercy cost them an equaliser late on.

There were positives to take from that clash but no points and now the pressure is on as they go into their second game against South Korea, who lacked inspiration in their opening 0-0 draw with Uruguay.

Son Heung-min did at least get through that first clash unscathed and he will be hoping to make an impact against the Black Stars, with the Spurs ace priced at 7/4 to find the back of the net on Monday.

Uruguay looking to make history

What: Portugal v Uruguay, World Cup 
Where: Lusail Stadium, Al Daayen, Qatar 
When: 19:00, Monday 28th November 
How to watch: ITV1 
Odds: Portugal 1/1, Draw 9/4, Uruguay 16/5

Uruguay's goalless opener represented a fifth consecutive clean sheet in the World Cup group stages and they can become the first side in history to register six successive shutouts with another against Portugal.

That may be easier said than done with the Portuguese having registered three goals already, but La Celeste have an extremely experienced defence.

Keeping out a side that includes the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Joao Felix will not be easy, on the face of it, but it is 11/4 that they do just that at the Lusail Stadium in the late game at 19:00.
