World Cup 2022 – Croatia vs. Brazil: quarterfinals NOW in live ticker – 0:0
14.: …and need a half-height cross at the nearby pentagon. Thanks Richard.
14.: Croatia is better and takes the first corner out. Modric goes to the flag in the left corner…
12.: Phew, that was more dangerous. Juranovic found plenty of space on the right wing and launched into the penalty area at full speed. Then the stop for Perisic, who immediately crossed towards the inside – and Kramaric nearly got the ball on five! Luckily for Brazil that the pass arrives a little behind Hoffenheim.
10.: For the first time, the pulse of Brazilian fans is quickening. Richarlison plays half left, forwards the first contact to Vinicius Junior, who shoots on the edge of the area. There, the true professional crosses, thinking about the shot, but decides to put the pass into the box on the right. What looked promising eventually fizzled out as the move to Sosa stalled.
9.: Let’s go back to the Croatian approach: knowingly taking the ball from the Brazilian is certainly not a bad idea at times. Of course, possession of the ball with many men in the front third also hides the risk of a counterattack. The Selecao have enough speed in their ranks with Raphinha, Vinicius Junior and Co.
8.: A cross from the right crept deep into the Brazilian penalty area, Perisic scrambled against Eder Militao, but overworked his arms. Referee Oliver punishes the offensive foul.
7.: Croatia have more possession early on than previously thought. Quiet relay races in their ranks, Brazil is not in a great hurry in pressing. Again, the question is how long-term this strategy is designed.
5.: Now Brazil is signing up. Marquinhos hits Vinicius Junior with the long left wing. The Real Madrid man knocks out a defender with his cross, then turns the second ball into the far corner with his inside right. The ball travels long enough from 18 meters, Livakovic has a good view. One to warm up.
3.: After all, the Croatians cause a bad pass, Kovacic gets a free kick somewhere between the penalty area and the central circle. Modric serves but can’t find the head of the Croatian.
2.: Croatia run high, also putting central defenders under pressure. The question is always how long something like this will last. Either a flash in the pan from the first few minutes or a permanent pattern.
1.: The ball rolls.
World Cup 2022 – Croatia vs. Brazil: Quarterfinals NOW in live ticker – kick off
Before the beginning: The anthems are playing, it’s about to begin!
Before the beginning: The match referee is Michael Oliver from England. The 37-year-old is in command in his third match at this World Cup. Previously he had played in the group stage of Japan-Costa Rica and Saudi Arabia-Mexico.
Before the beginning: However, Croatia needs to improve. The performances so far have been pretty average in terms of play, otherwise you would have scored more than five points in the group stage. When it comes to team spirit, no one can fool the Croatians. This was recently demonstrated by the upset against Japan after trailing 1-0. The fact that goalkeeper Livakovic saved three penalties in the end should have given another boost to team morale.
Before the beginning: No matter how hard the Selecao gallop through the tournament, a rude awakening cannot be ruled out. With Croatia, awaits a tournament team that truly deserves this sloppy title. Croatia have won seven of their last nine World Cup play-offs and have always scored. By way of comparison, Brazil have lost three of their last four quarter-finals. Most recently in 2018 with 1: 2 against Belgium.
Before the beginning: Because so far the opponents did not have the size of the Brazilian collar. In a group with Switzerland, Serbia and Cameroon, only the last group game was lost against the Africans, but that did not change the group win of the Selecao. As entry to the round of 16 had already been fixed in advance, manager Tite rested a number of regular staff. When they returned against South Korea, the Asians were four goals down after 36 minutes. Then down three gears, final score 4:1.
Before the beginning: No team plays better football in this tournament. Nobody scores better goals. And no one has greater offensive potential. There is no doubt that so far Brazil have lived up to their role as favourites. How good is the “Selecao” really? The first real touchstone awaits with runners-up world champion Croatia.
Before the beginning: Brazil coach Tite backs the same team that defeated South Korea 4-1 in the round of 16.
- Alisson – Eder Militao, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Danilo – Casemiro, Lucas Paqueta, Neymar – Raphinha, Richarlison, Vinicius Junior
Before the beginning: Croatia defeated Japan 3-1 on penalties in the round of 16 (1-1). In comparison, coach Zlatko Dalic made a substitution: Pasalic played on the right flank of the attack in place of Petkovic (on the bench).
- Livakovic – Juranovic, Lovren, Gvardiol, Sosa – Brozovic, Modric, Kovacic, Pasalic, Perisic – Kramaric
Before the beginning: Croatia just qualified for the quarterfinals, the runners-up defeated Japan on penalties. It was 1-1 after 90 and 120 minutes. Meanwhile, Brazil soundly defeated South Korea 4-1 and should still be favorites today.
Before the beginning: From 20:00 the Netherlands and Argentina will then play against each other. Tomorrow, Saturday, Morocco-Portugal and England-France will be played.
Before the beginning: Of the initial 32 nations, eight are still represented at the World Cup in Qatar. It means it’s the quarterfinals. After a two-day break, the round of 16 will start on Friday. It starts with the duel between Croatia and Brazil at 16:00.
