Croatia vs Brazil Line-ups, H2H and Score Predictions, Will Neymar Have a Hat-trick?

The Croatian national team and the Brazilian national team will duel in the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup, Friday, December 9 2022, at 22:00 WIB. The Croatia vs Brazil match will be held at Education City Stadium, live on SCTV, Indosiar, NEX Parabola, and live streaming on Vidio.

Croatia is the runner-up of the 2018 World Cup, while Brazil is one of the strongest favorites to win in Qatar 2022. The two teams will fight for the right to qualify for the semifinals, where they will face the Netherlands or Argentina.

Croatia struggled to escape from Japan's challenge in the round of 16. The runner-up in Group F needed a penalty shoot-out to get rid of the Asian representative.

Just like Croatia, Brazil also qualified for the quarter-finals after eliminating Asian representatives, namely South Korea. The Group G winners won 4-1 through goals from Vinicius Junior, Neymar (penalty), Richarlison and Lucas Paqueta.

Brazil only scored three goals in the group phase, but as soon as they entered the knockout stage, they immediately went crazy. Brazil scored a goal in just one match against South Korea, where they scored all four goals in the first half.

From his last few appearances in the knockout rounds of the World Cup and Euros, Croatia can be said to have a unique ability, namely taking the match to extra time, even on penalties. However, with the quality they have, it is predicted that Brazil will be able to finish their duel later in 90 minutes.
