Looking back at the last World Cup in Russia, Croatia, with a population of only 4 million, made it all the way to the finals, losing 2-4 to France and finishing second, setting the best record in team history. In the round of 16 of this World Cup, Croatia and Japan staged the first knockout match and won 3-1 in the end. After a major change in the Croatia lineup, as many as 18 players participated in the World Cup for the first time, this time it entered the top 8 is also the third-best result in team history.
In the last World Cup, Brazil stopped in the quarter-finals and was eliminated by Belgium 1-2. Brazil, which is making a comeback in this World Cup, eliminated South Korea 4-1 in the round of 16 with overwhelming momentum, showing a strong attempt to hit the championship. The players in the Brazilian lineup are mostly European giants. Except for the top star Neymar who returned from injury, the midfield combination of Casemiro and Lucas Paqueta has performed well in this World Cup.
In the past, Croatia and Brazil have met twice in the World Cup, both of which Brazil came up on top. It is also worth noting that Brazil has only allowed their opponents to score 2 goals so far in this World Cup in Qatar, while Croatia has scored 4 goals in the first 4 games except for the one against Canada, and failed to score in the other 3 games. In contrast to the current situation, one team effectively suppresses the opponent’s attack, while the other team is poor in attack. Perhaps from this perspective, one can grasp the wealth code of betting.
