Croatia vs Brazil Prediction: The test for the champion candidate

Croatia needed a penalty shoot-out win over Japan to advance to the Round of 16 and will need to be at their best if they are to advance past the Quarter-Finals. Brazil demonstrated why they are the favorites to win the World Cup in 2022 by dominating a mediocre South Korean squad from tip to end in a game that saw Neymar return and score.

Croatia's form

Croatia will compete in the World Cup quarterfinals for the second time in a row and for the third time in their history after defeating Japan 3-1 on penalties in the last 16 on Monday.

Croatia form

Croatia is no stranger to high-stakes drama, having gone to extra time in seven of their past eight knockout matches at major competitions since coming third in their first World Cup finals in 1998. Four of Croatia's last five World Cup knockout matches have gone to extra time, with the Checkered Ones winning three of them on penalties - a 4-2 defeat to France in 2018 final is the only time a knockout game involving Croatia has been decided in 90 minutes during this run.

Dalic and company are unbeaten in their last 10 caps and have lost just one of their last 20 games in all competitions since Euro 2020, but that impressive run will be put to the test by a top-flight Brazilian side who go into Friday's game against South Korea after their best performance at this year's tournament in Qatar.

Brazil's form

The Brazilian flair and swagger that football fans around the world have come to expect from the five-time world champions were on display on Monday, as Tite's side sambaed their way into the quarter-finals with a 4-1 victory over South Korea in the last 16.

Brazil form

Brazil is brimming with confidence as they prepare for their seventh consecutive World Cup quarter-final, but they will be wary of their recent record at this stage of the competition. The Selecao has been eliminated in the quarter-finals of three of the last four World Cups, falling to European powers France, the Netherlands, and Belgium in 2006, 2010, and 2018.

Brazil has lost each of their last five knockout matches against European nations since defeating Germany 2-0 in the 2002 World Cup final. However, the Selecao have never lost in four prior encounters with Croatia, while the 1-0 group-stage setback to Cameroon last week is their only defeat in their past 19 internationals which bodes well heading into Friday's showdown.

Croatia vs Brazil H2H Stats

Croatia vs Brazil Betting Tips

Brazil to Win-to-Nil

Brazil had never lost to Croatia before and the pair met four times in total, twice at World Cups. Of those four encounters, Brazil had three wins, including a 1-0 win at the 2006 World Cup and a -1 win at the 2014 World Cup. These two nations last met in 2018 when Brazil won and held through goals from Neymar and Firmino's clean sheet. The South Americans have kept three clean sheets in their last five games, while Croatia has missed out. scored in two of his four games in Qatar.

Richarlison to Score

Richarlison scored for Brazil against South Korea in the Round of 16, scoring three goals for the tournament. If the Tottenham striker is to pick up the Golden Boot, which seems headed for Mbappe, he'll likely need to score in this game and we think he has a good chance of doing so given how brilliantly and sharply he played Qatar and he did play a very important role for his country.
