Brazil versus South Korea - Monday, December 5th

The footballing nation of Brazil has been spoiled to see their team get through to the knockout stage without any real true test.

Although their last group stage match ended in a loss to Cameroon, they were already making the playoffs as a first seed within their group.

Now, the real tournament stars for one of the most historic countries within the sport.

Brazil will be happy to know that their star man Neymar will be more than likely coming back and playing a huge role in their possible quest for a title.

They severely missed his presence in the last two games, although their lineup without him is not shabby whatsoever.

With star players like Vinicius JrRodrygo and Richarlison, there is so much to be afraid about the Brazilian side.

With the whole field of the World Cup playing to the levels of their opponents, Brazil will look to change the common theme we have seen in the first few rounds of knockouts.

South Korea pulled a miracle out of the hat with qualification, after a last-minute goal beat Portugal this past Thursday.

One of the more epic stories of the WC so far, South Korea has always been known to put up a great fight within the international realm.

However, their results in their respective Asian region have been lacklustre in 2022.

Things picked up for this squad, quickly, although, after securing a crucial draw in the first game against Uruguay.

This allowed the squad to play more freely while also being serious. Expect SK to play a more defensive role in this one, looking for counter opportunities.

Betting Prediction - Brazil to win and the over on their team total to hit as far as goals go as well!

Croatia versus Japan - Monday, December 5th

Croatia and Japan will face off in a battle that will see one of these squads in the quarterfinals of Qatar 2022.

Japan has had one of the most miraculous runs in the cup so far, placing first in a group with superior talents in Germany and Spain.

This did not stop them from believing in themselves, however.

The shock results to the top European squads did them a whole lot of good for making it to the next round, and now look to have some great potential to make it deeper.

Croatia is counting their lucky stars after Romelu Lukaku missed every single goal opportunity for Belgium.

The former World Cup finalists are on thin ice and need to figure out what to do in the defensive park as well as how to score goals more consistently.
