Brazil – Belgium World Cup Prediction
Brazil’s national team finished first in Group E with 7 points after defeating Costa Rica (2-0 in St. Petersburg, 90 + 1 Philippe Coutinho, Neymar 90 + 7) and Serbia (2- 0 in Moscow, Paulinho 36, Thiago Silva 68) and drew with Switzerland (1-1 at Rostov-on-Don, Philippe Coutinho 20 – Steven Zuber 50). In the finals “Seleção” eliminated Mexico, (2-0 at Samara, Neymar 51, Roberto Firmino 88). Tite’s team score was 4 matches – 3 wins and one draw, with 7 goals scored and one goal scored. World Cup football teams have been eliminated like Germany, Spain or Argentina, so “Verde-Amarela” can hope for the 6th trophy in history. South Americans still have only two hard games to play, with Belgium in quarters and France / Uruguay in the semifinals. Interestingly, a possible final with England / Sweden / Russia / Croatia is more accessible than the quarter-finals or a possible semi-final
The Belgian team finished first in Group H with 9 points after defeating Panama (3-0 in Sochi, Dries Mertens 47, Romelu Lukaku 69, 75), Tunisia (5-2 in Moscow, Eden Hazard 6, 51 penalty, Romelu Lukaku 16, 45 + 3, Michy Batshuayi 90 – Dylan Bronn 18, Wahbi Khazri 90 + 3) and England (1-0 in Kaliningrad, Adnan Januzaj 51). In the finals of the final, “Les Diables Rouges” eliminated Japan with great emotions, 3-2 at Rostov-on-Don, Jan Vertonghen 69, Marouane Fellaini 74, Nacer Chadli 90 + 4 – Genki Haraguchi 48, Takashi Inui 52). Roberto Martínez’s team balance was 4 matches – 4 wins, with 12 goals scored and 4 goals scored. The Belgians had great emotions with the Japanese, who had 2-0 on the scoreboard, but managed to rebound and win by 3-2. At the 2014 CM they were eliminated by Argentina, 0-1 in quarters, but now hope that they will not do the same with Brazil.
Prediction Brazil – Belgium
Both countries are in the top FIFA rankings and are going through a very good period, the South Americans having only one failure in the last 25 matches and the Europeans 23 consecutive non-defeat games. Tite will not be able to use Casemiro’s midfielder, who is suspended from the yellow cards received in matches with Switzerland and Mexico. Real Madrid player will be replaced by Fernandinho. You will also miss the extreme right Douglas Costa, who is injured while the right Danilo defender and Marcelo left defender are uncertain. Selector Roberto Martínez has no problem with the lot, with all the players available. It will be a very interesting match between two very strong teams who are fighting to win the World Cup. “Seleção” seems to be a favorite, but “Les Diables Rouges” also have their chance, with only victories at CM 2018 and the best attack from all teams.
Surely Brazil will not have an easy match, but players seem more motivated and more eager to win the World Cup. Belgium has shown its weaknesses with Japan, and if it does the same mistakes again, I doubt it will be able to return the result.
