Most people predicted this match to be Brazil vs Portugal. But this World Cup is with full of surprises and every group surprised us. Many giants like Germany, Belgium, and Uruguay got eliminated from the group stages. Also, we got the teams like Morocco, USA which performed expected and outstanding. Morocco topped the table in the group where Croatia and Belgium are present and stayed unbeaten. In Group H, everybody was like Uruguay is topping the table. They even have not qualified for the round of 16. South Korea deservingly achieved it. Let’s analyze both teams and we will try to predict the winner of this match.

Brazil Squad and Predicted Lineup Against South Korea in the Round of 16
The world’s No. 1 team Brazil is looking in amazing form. Their complete squad is looking dangerous and no team would want to face them in the early knockout stages. That’s called a perfect team. If you talk about Richarlison, Neymar, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo, and Casemiro all are looking in amazing form. Even they do have the world’s best goalkeepers like Ederson, and Alisson in option. A perfect squad anyone will wish to have. The only thing to be worried about for Brazil is Neymar‘s injury. Hope he will be available for the round of 16.
Brazil Predicted Line-Up Against South Korea
Brazil might play in 4-2-3-1 formation

South Korea Squad and Predicted Lineup Against Brazil in the Round of 16
South Korea looks decent, hardworking and their last win against Portugal will boost their confidence to the next level. Nobody ever thought they will qualify from the group where giant teams like Portugal and Uruguay are present. But the truth is they have deservingly achieved it. Same thing we have seen in Group E where Japan qualified despite having Germany and Spain in their group. Facing Brazil in this early knockout stage might be difficult for them but these Asian teams might have more surprises for you. They do have the capabilities to compete with any team. Let’s see what happens!!!

Brazil vs South Korea Match Prediction
Brazil looks far better than south Korea in every aspect. If you check FIFA’s ranking, South Korea stands at 28th position while Brazil is the world’s number 1 team. But as I said before, you can’t say anything in the World Cup matches. At least in the knockout rounds, anything can happen. Any miracle can only save South Korea in this knockout round. And if this happens, this will be the biggest upset in FIFA history. But I think Brazil will win this match easily.
South Korea: 10%
If my opinion, Brazil will beat South Korea by 2-0.
