Brazil v Croatia Betting Tips
December 9th Betting Tip
Brazil and Croatia will play the quarterfinals of the World Cup on Friday at 12:00 pm (Brasília timezone) at Education City Stadium (Al Rayyan).
Brazil was first in GROUP G [Switzerland, Serbia and Cameroon]. After winning the first two rounds, the Brazilian team entered the field with the reserve team and lost 1-0 to Cameroon. They finished the group stage with the same score as Switzerland, but had an advantage in the tiebreaker [goal difference]. The positive point was due to the defensive system that proved to be very solid and conceded only one goal. The attack, on the other hand, did not excite much and averaged one goal scored per match.
In the round of 16, they faced South Korea, who had just beaten Portugal in the last round of the group stage. But very easily and efficiently, Brazil only “needed to play” the first half. With 36′ minutes, the Brazilian team was already winning by 4×0 and stamped the place for the quarterfinals.
Croatia finished in second place in GROUP F, behind the big surprise Morocco, which in addition to finishing first, eliminated Spain in the round of 16. The Croatians finished the first phase undefeated, with 2 draws of 0x0 and a 4×1 victory against Canada. In the round of 16, they faced the good team of Japan and qualified in the penalty shootout, after the 1-1 tie in normal time.
Brazil and Croatia have already met twice in the World Cup, with Brazil winning both matches. In 2006, Brazil won by 1-0 and in 2014 by 3-1. On both occasions the clashes were valid for the group stage and in both Croatia did not qualify for the second phase of the competition. On two occasions they faced each other in a friendly, with a victory for Brazil and a draw.
The match promises to be tough, the runner-up of the world in 2018 will not give Brazil much space and will try to nullify the main moves of Vinicius Junior, Rafinha and Neymar. Brazil needs a lot of patience and take advantage of the few opportunities that will have to score. The team that passes to the next stage will face the Netherlands or Argentina in the semifinals.
Probable lineups and odds
Brazil should go to the field with: Alisson, Danilo, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, and Alex Sandro (Militão); Casemiro, Lucas Paquetá, Neymar; Raphinha, Vinicius Jr. and Richarlison.
Croatia should go to the field with: Dominik Livakovic, Josip Juranovic, Dejan Lovren, Josko Gvardiol and Borna Barisic; Marcelo Brozovic, Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic; Andrej Kramaric, Bruno Petkovic and Ivan Perisic.
As I said before, I don’t believe in an easy match for Brazil and this odd of 1.36 to win is not attractive. Despite having great attacking options, Brazil will not have much space and will depend on individual plays to break through Croatia’s defense. The tendency is for a truncated match, especially in the first half and with few goal opportunities. With that in mind, my betting tips are:
Betting Tip: Both Teams to Score – NO, with odds of 1.70 at Galera Bet.
Betting Tip: Under 3.5 goals, with odds of 1.40 at Galera Bet.
