Live Brazil vs Croatia 2022 World Cup Quarter-Final

The first match between the two teams will take place in the 2022 World Cup quarterfinals between Brazil and Croatia. On Friday, December 9, the game will begin at 10 a.m. in Education City Stadium, ET. The two teams took significantly different routes to get here. In the round of 16, Brazil easily defeated South Korea, while Croatia had a difficult time defeating Japan before winning on penalties. Brazil has previously faced Croatia in two World Cup matches, both group-stage matches, and both won. At the 2018 World Cup, Croatia’s 3-0 victory over Argentina was the only time they had ever defeated a South American team.

The Brazilians, are on track to win their sixth World Cup trophy in Qatar after already winning it five times. Vinicius Jr., Neymar, Richarlison, and Lucas Paqueta scored for the Selecao in a 4-1 Round of 16 victory over South Korea to push them to the quarterfinals. The Selecao built a four-goal advantage over South Korea in just 36 minutes of play.

Brazil has only lost once thus far in the 2022 World Cup, a 1-0 loss to Cameroon in the group stage. That loss marked their first in their previous 19 international games. Brazil will remember its recent experience at this level, even if this is its sixth trip to a World Cup quarterfinal encounter. Brazil was eliminated in the quarterfinals of three of the last four competitions in 2006, 2010, and 2018.

These defeats came at the hands of Belgium, the Netherlands, and France. However, they are up against Croatia this time, a team they have defeated in their previous four encounters. On Friday, they’ll be prepared to recover from their quarterfinals downturn.

However, due to injuries sustained in the final group stage match against Cameroon, Gabriel Jesus and Alex Relles won’t be able to participate in the remainder of the World Cup. After missing the Round of 16 due to a hip injury, Alex Sandro might be able to participate in the game.

Croatia 2022 World Cup

Before losing to France in 2018, Croatia qualified for the World Cup finals. They did, however, reach the quarterfinals this year, but it wasn’t pleasant. They have only achieved one victory thus far in the competition, a 4-1 win over Canada in the group stage, three draws, and a victory over Japan on penalties in the Round of 16. However, in their last 11 World Cup games.

Although it has been challenging to defeat Croatia’s side led by captain Luka Modric, they will face a tough Brazilian squad. At this point in the competition, draws and victories in penalty shootouts will probably not cut it.

There will be at least one significant injury for Croatia as well. Josip Stanisic had to skip Round 16 due to a muscle ailment, and he might miss the quarterfinals. Borna Sosa was unwell and, therefore, unable to play, but he should be ready to face Brazil.

  • Livakovic
  • Juranovic
  • Lovren
  • Guardiola
