 Quarterfinal world cup 2022 Brazil vs Croatia

Brazil Vs Croatia quarter final

When Brazil plays against Croatia in the Quarterfinal world cup 2022 in Qatar, they will try to snap their recent quarterfinal slump.

Three of the Selecao’s previous four World Cup quarterfinal games have ended in defeat. Including the one in which they were eliminated early by Belgium in 2018.

Even though Croatia, the runners-up from the 2018 World Cup, has played poorly so far this tournament. They have managed to produce results with just one victory in 90 minutes and three draws in their four games. They beat Japan on penalties to advance to the quarterfinals.

However, Luka Modric and company have shown they are a tough nut to crack since the 2018 World Cup began, losing only one of their past 11 World Cup games—the 2018 final against France.

Neymar will feel confident about his chances in this game after thrashing South Korea in the Round of 16 after missing time with an ankle injury. He took on Neymar as the two were frequent rivals during Neymar’s time at Barcelona.

The Brazilian defense, which has allowed only two goals throughout the tournament and one of those during the group-stage finale against Cameroon. Their backup team in use, is seen by oddsmakers as being invincible versus Croatia.

Three things to know about Croatia vs Brazil

The Croatia vs Brazil roster

Full-back Josip Stanisic’s muscular injury, which prevented him from playing against Japan in the Round of 16, is Croatia’s biggest problem. Josip Juranovic stepped in and performed admirably throughout the entire game. Due to illness, Borna Sosa, his full-back counterpart, missed that game as well; Borna Barisic replaced him, and it is possible that Sosa will play again in the near future.

Brazil must be concerned about several injuries. Injuries sustained in the last group-stage match against Cameroon eliminated Gabriel Jesus and Alex Telles from the competition. Alex Sandro, who missed the Round of 16 victory over South Korea due to a hip injury, is expected to recover. Eder Militao filled in at right-back for Sandro. Both Danilo and Neymar, who both started that first knockout game and played 80 minutes after overcoming an ankle ailment, are healthy.

  • Score prediction: Brazil 2-0 Croatia

At this World Cup, Croatia has not demonstrated anything that would suggest they might challenge Brazil at this level of the competition. It’s over, plain and simple.

Croatia has shown they can hold their own against weaker competition with three ties and only one victory. However, other than goalie Dominik Livakovic and Josko Gvardiol’s outstanding campaign, this team has not exactly dazzled. Their two scoreless group-stage ties showed they lack the offensive firepower to contend, and unless they can block Brazil from scoring, they won’t have much up front to offset the goals they give up.
