Croatia vs Brazil Prediction 9 December 2022

Tournament: 2022 FIFA World Cup
Location: Education City Stadium, Al Rayyan
Match date: 12/09/2022 at 15:00

On Friday evening, the first quarter-final match of the 2022 World Cup between the national teams of Croatia and Brazil will take place.

Croatia finished runners-up in the group stage not without problems, scoring five points in duels with Morocco (0-0), Canada (4-1) and Belgium (0-0). In the round of 16, the Checkered beat Japan, which they defeated on penalties after 1-1 in regular and extra time. We’ll remind you that Dalic's men are the reigning vice-champions of the world.

At the previous World Cup, Brazil stopped at the quarterfinal stage, but now they have a much more impressive playing potential. Yes, Selecao did not show bright football in the quartet with Serbia (2-0), Switzerland (1-0) and Cameroon (0-1), but in the first round of the playoffs they thrashed South Korea 4-1.

The obvious favorites of this pair are the Brazilians, whose level is much higher, and the balance in the matches with Croatia is also in their favor. We expect decent football from the Checkered, thanks to which they have a chance to avoid defeat.
