Top Two Free Predictions and Betting Tips for Croatia vs Brazil
Bookmaker Ratings Prediction One: Brazil to Win – 1.36
Bookmaker Ratings Prediction Two: Over 2 Goals – 1.37
Brazil to Win
Brazil are the favorites to win this match with a 90% possibility as they won nine of their ten outings prior to this game. Moreover, the Selecao were victorious in the last three meetings with Croatia of which two were in the 2006 and 2014 World Cups.
Over 2 Goals
The last two confrontations between Croatia vs Brazil produced two or more goals. In addition, five of Croatia’s and seven of Brazil’s previous ten fixtures ended with two or more goals. Consequently, the possibility for this bet to succeed is 60%.
Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Croatia vs Brazil
Croatia are daring to dream again after coming through a grueling last 16 tie against Japan on penalties, with goalkeeper Dominik Livaković the hero as he became just the third goalkeeper to save three spot-kicks in a World Cup shootout. Zlatko Dalić’s Croatia side now appear in the quarter-finals for the third time, and having progressed to the semi-finals in their previous two World Cup quarter-final ties, they have proved their credentials at this stage of late.
The 2018 World Cup runners-up have relied on their big game experience at this tournament to pull them through some shaky performances. Still, their form remains impressive, losing just once since their elimination from Euro 2020 last summer (W13, D6).
If there’s a side that can break them open though it’s surely Brazil, who are among the leading candidates to win the trophy after they produced a mesmeric performance to demolish South Korea 4-1 in the round of 16. Tite’s men rattled in all four of their goals in a devastating first half that allowed Brazil to slip into second gear and preserve energy by withdrawing some of their big hitters ahead of this quarter-final clash with the Croatians.
The record five-time world champions boast a dominant H2H record, winning both World Cup clashes against Croatia while avoiding defeat in two other meetings (W1, D1). If there is a slight knock to Brazil’s confidence though, it likely stems from their poor recent record against European opposition in the knockouts, with all of their five exits from the World Cup after 1990 coming at the hands of European sides.
Croatia vs Brazil Prediction
It won’t be easy for Brazil who are not only the favorites to win this game but a sixth trophy. The Selecao showed they are on a different level than the rest when all starters are fit and playing together. A Brazil win seems inevitable.
