Croatia Squad and Line-up Against Brazil In Quarter-Final Match

This Croatian team has the experience to dive deep till the world cup finals, but after watching their past matches I feel they lack a goal scorer a striker who will use the ability and crosses of Luka Modric to convert into a goal. If we see their past matches Croatia struggles to score a goal and starts to play a defensive game against the opponents, Yeah! this may be a good strategy but against Brazil a big NO. Brazil is a goal-scoring team and the Croatian defense won’t be able to handle their strong attacks. While Croatia has to build a strong attacking strategy and they have to find a way to score against the Brazillian defense.

Perisic, Petkovic, and Kramaric are playing a good forward game but they need to improve their accuracy to put that ball into a goal. While Croatia’s Mid-field and Defense are satisfying but need to be alert when they have to face Brazil.

Croatia’s Predicted Line-up

Goalkeepers: Dominik Livakovic

Defenders: Dejan Lovren, Josip Juranovic, Josko Gvardiol, Borna Sosa

Midfielders: Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic, Marcelo Brozovic

Forwards: Ivan Perisic, Andrej Kramaric, Petkovic

Croatia’s Formation against Brazil


Brazil Squad and Line-up Against Croatia In Quarter-Final Match

Brazil has a wonderful squad, all of its players play for big clubs in Europe. They have many options in every position on the ground. We have seen how Brazil showed its quality play against South Korea. They scored 4 goals against them and all 4 goals were scored by different players. They have Neymar who is the number 9 player and currently in great form with the support of Vinicious Jr from the left flank and Raphinha from the right wing while Richarlison for support. This is the most dangerous combination any team will face.

Casemiro and Lucan Paqueta can handle the complete midfield, while Militao, Silva, Marquinhos, and Danilo become the defensive wall against the opponent attackers.

In the quarter-final match manager, Tite will give preference to their first-choice goalkeeper Ederson.
