FIFA World Cup - Croatia vs Brazil

FIFA World Cup - Croatia vs Brazil



After a 120-minute laborious tie in the round of 16, Kockasti defeated Japan on penalties.

In this World Cup, they drew three times, exhibiting a tendency of defensive, low-scoring strategies. Zlatko Dalic prefers a midfield triangle consisting of Modric, Rakitic, and Perisic to maintain a high possession for a strong defense, as I wrote in my prediction of Japan vs Croatia.


Since the beginning of this year's World Cup, they have been the hot take.

In the last group match against Cameroon, Tite rotated his players, allowing most of key players to get some rest before returning for the match against South Korea. And they succeeded in doing so, defeating South Korea 4-1 to advance to the quarterfinal. It is anticipated that Tite's leadership would lead to positive outcomes in this World Cup.

A low-scoring outcome is anticipated given that both of their average ages are over 27 and that they have three days to prepare for the quarterfinal. Croatia have been defeated by Brazil three times, including on neutral ground. Brazil have a better chance of winning.
