Brazil Preview | 1st place in Group G
Incredibly, the Brazilian national team ended up almost asking for time after a 92nd minute goal by Cameroon almost sent them to second place in Group G.
With Switzerland winning 2-3 against Serbia, the Europeans were just one goal short of finishing top of the group and pulling off another of the surprises of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Already qualified, Tite sent to the field many of his substitutes, who, although they are players from elite teams, represent a disadvantage against any team in the World Cup.
And although the South Americans had 21 shots, eight of them on target, they once again struggled to score and that is a cause for concern ahead of the Round of 16 clash against South Korea..
Probable lineup (4-3-3): Alisson, Eder Militao, Marquinhos, Tiago Silva, Alex Sandro, Casemiro. Fred, Lucas Paquetá, Rapinha, Richarlison, Vinicius Jr.
South Korea Preview | 2nd Place in Group H
Surprises continue at the Qatar 2022 World Cup after a 91st minute goal gave South Korea a 2-1 victory over Portugal to eliminate Uruguay.
Despite going behind in the fifth minute of the match, the Asian team was able to recover against a Portuguese team that had already qualified for the Round of 16 and started with many substitute players.
However, that does not detract from the merit of South Korea, who battled from start to finish and with four points surpassed Uruguay on goals scored, since although in goal difference they both finished at 0, the Koreans scored four times, while the Uruguayans only scored twice.
The Asian team thus made it through the group stage for the third time in its history, although it will now face a tough obstacle against one of the favorites, Brazil, a team that conceded only one goal in the group stage.
Probable lineup (4-1-2-3): Kim Seung-gyu; Kim Moon-hwan, Kwon Kyung-won, Kim Young-gwon, Kim Jin-su; Jung Woo-young; Hwang In-beom, Lee Kang-In; Lee Jae-sung, Son Heung-min, Cho Gue-sung.
South Korea’s tactical organization was rewarded with a win over Portugal and qualification to the group stage, which is a positive sign ahead of a Brazil side that is favored to win a sixth world title.
With Neymar in doubt, the South American team will have to perform much better than in the group stage, where they dominated their matches but failed to finish off their opponents. Brazil had a hard time scoring goals, despite reaching more than 20 shots on goal at times.
Prediction: Over (BRA 2 – KOR 1).
