Brazil vs South Korea will decide on another placeholder in the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup 2022. The final round of the competition’s group stage saw Brazil surprisingly losing to Cameroon although the Selecao had already secured their place in the knockouts in the previous game against Switzerland. While on the other hand, South Korea had to hold and fight until the very last minute and even further to secure a place in the last 16.

Whilst doing so, the Asian Tiger caused one of the major upsets of this tournament; captain Heung min Son and his teammates defeated Cristiano Ronaldo-led Portugal 2-1 at the 90th-minute mark thereby almost getting a spot in the knockouts. Their progress was confirmed when in the other match of the very group Uruguay failed to net enough goals against their respective opponent, Ghana.

This is the first time in the last 16 for South Korea since 2010. Their best-ever run was back in the 2002 edition where they reached the semifinals of the competition. Brazil on the other hand is playing their 14th consecutive knockout game. The FIFA World Cup 1966 was the last tournament where they failed to make it past the group stage.

Brazil vs South Korea Team News And Expected Lineups

One of the big and good news for Brazil heading into the match against South Korea is that they will have their star man Neymar playing for them. The sad news though is Arsenal’s strikers, Gabriel Jesus and Sevilla left-back Alex Telles have been confirmed to miss out for the rest of the tournament. Brazil is also short at left back due to Juventus Alex Sandro’s hip problem. However, it has been hinted that Bianconeri’s right back Danilo has recovered from an ankle sprain and could fill in for Sandro. There is no question in Eder Militao serving in the right flank.

As for South Korea, their goal scorer in the match against Portugal and Wolves forward Hwang Hee-Chan is doubtful due to calf discomfort so Mainz midfielder Lee Jae Sung has a good possibility to handle his area. Other ambiguous subjects are Napoli center-back Kim Min Jae, Mallorca midfielder Lee Kang In, and Ulsan Hyundai defender Kim Young Gwon. Tottenham striker Heung Min Son is absolutely necessary if South Korea is to have their chance against the Selecao.

Brazil vs South Korea Possible Lineups

Brazil: Alisson; Militao, Marquinhos, Silva, Danilo; Paqueta, Casemiro, Neymar; Raphinha, Richarlison, Vinicius Jr

South Korea: Seung-gyu; Moon-hwan, Kyung-won, Young-gwon, Jin-su; In-beom, Woo-young; Hee-chan, Kang-in, Heung-min; Gue-sung

Brazil vs South Korea Predictions

Six attempts and counting but the Taegeuk Warriors are yet to beat South American opponents at the World Cup. Brazil naturally has always had more qualified and skilled players than not just South Korea but also any of the favorites. They rested their key players in the match against Cameroon and now will have well-kept legs versus South Korea.

Edging out Uruguay en route to their second-place finish in Group H, South Korea has shown good temperament in the ongoing competition but when it comes to Brazil, the World Cup royalty, your favorites one way or the other have to be them. These Brazilian sides are expected to be too much for the Koreans. The fixture has been considered one of the more skewed with Brazil being the ultimate world heavyweight. There is just something formidable about their abilities in each area, whether defense, mid, or attack. The individualistic talents have always made Brazil an easy victor at least in the initial phases of the international tournaments.

Projected Scoreline: Brazil 3-1 S. Korea
