Brazil vs Belgium Today’s Soccer Prediction
But the athletic career of both teams is also impressive, as both the Selecao and the Red Devils are still unbeaten.
Nevertheless, it was the Belgians who had to tremble neatly in the Eighth Final – despite the fact that the role allocation in Japan could hardly have been clearer in the run-up to the final.
All the more astonished were then the looks at the Belgians, as the underdog was completely unexpected with 2: 0 in front. Takashi Inui (formerly Eintracht Frankfurt) and Hannover’s Genki Haraguchi needed just four minutes for their two goals.Dark clouds spread over the Rostov Arena – at least for the much cited World Cup favorites. Finally, it had been the case in 1970 that a team (West Germany, Anm.) In a World Cup knockout round match could turn a 0-2 deficit successfully.But instead of a thunderstorm, the sun should finally come out for Belgium in the end. After Jan Vertonghen (69.) and Marouane Fellaini (74.) had initially provided for the quick equalization, it was a few moments before the end of a perfectly played counter-clock, which then made the Red Devils still cheer on the accomplished quarter-finals.
Notwithstanding the fact that his team had come quite close to the abyss of the evening, coach Roberto Martínez at the end of the positive aspects: “A 0: 2 do not catch up often, which speaks for the passion, the focus and the unconditional will. “Meanwhile, coach Martinez makes no secret of finding himself and his side on Friday as a lightweight outsider.”Brazil are the best team in the tournament, you have to accept that and then find your role. Neymar and Philippe Coutinho can decide the game in a second. “At the same time, Man City star Kevin de Bruyne also referred to his own “offensive” qualities and emphasized: “If you want to win a tournament, you have to stand up to any team.”
Incidentally, this is an important man for the quarter-finals lost with the yellow-locked Casemiro.
But that does not change anything about the role of favorites in Brazil; the bookmakers still see the Selecao at an advantage.But this has hardly anything to do with the duels that have been fought so far, the last direct duel being not less than 16 years old. At that time, at the 2002 World Cup, both teams faced each other in the round of the last sixteen, in which Brazil managed to beat 2: 0.
