La Verdeamarela will seek a place in the final after 20 years. Brazil’s only defeat in this World Cup was on the third day of the group stage against Cameroon by the slightest difference.
Those led by Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, better known as Tite, recovered their top star Neymar Junior in the previous match, so their main line-up would likely be: Alisson in goal; Eder Militao, Marquinhos Thiago Silva and Danilo in defense; Lucas Paquetá and Casemiro in the first line of midfielders; Guerreiro and Vinicius Junior as wingers, leaving Neymar and Richarlison in attack as a striker.
For its part, Croatia arrives undefeated with two draws and one victory in the group stage, in addition to beating the Japan team in the round of 16 from penalty kicks.
The Croatian team has managed to get among the best four teams in a World Cup in the competitions held in 1998 and 2018.
The possible alignment of the Croatian team would have Livakovic at the door; Lovren, Juranovic, Barisic and Gvardiol at the back; Brozovic, Modric, and Kovacic as midfielders; up front Perisic, Pelkovic and the striker Kramaric.
The winner of this duel will face the winner of the bracket made up of the Netherlands and Argentina.
