Brazil with solid performance against Mexico – One of the hottest candidates
First of all, Brazil struggled a little in the group stage, but they still managed to finish first and ahead of Switzerland. In the round of 16, Neymar and Co had to take on Mexico. The first half went without any goals, but Brazil was still able to turn up in the second half. In the 51st minute, Neymar brought his team into the lead. Even though Mexico still had some good chances, they did not manage to convert these into a goal. The game ended with two goals in favor of Brazil. Next up, in the quarter-finals, a strong opponent is now waiting for Brazil. Belgium is playing a good tournament so far and is known for their offense as well as for their defense. For Brazil, it will be anything but easy against the Belgians. In the betting tip, we expect Brazil to lose.
Belgium shows morale – Fancied team in the betting tip
Belgium managed to play a really good group stage. With three consecutive wins, the Europeans managed to finish first in the group stage. Next up was a relatively easy opponent waiting: Japan. Even though Belgium was the better team, they did not manage to convert their chances into goals. Shortly after the break, Japan shocked the Belgians with a double strike. Belgium did not know what happened to them, but they managed to turn the game around. Belgium is now facing Brazil in the quarter-finals with a lot of confidence. They demonstrated their willpower and their mental strength once again. Moreover, the team is star-studded with players like Hazard or Lukaku. In our betting tip, we expect Belgium to win.
