Brazil vs South Korea World Cup 2022 – Match Preview
Will FIFA world number one Brazil recover from their historic defeat to Cameroon?
In any case, the signs are encouraging, especially given that the Brazilians made nine changes to their starting lineup in their loss to the Indomitable Lions. In fact, Tite has only had six defeats as coach of the Brazilian national team. Three of them were against Lionel Messi and his teammates.
The quarter-final match between South Korea and Brazil on Monday will feature two very different opponents. Brazil won their group on goal difference over Switzerland, while South Korea won Group H on goal difference over Uruguay.
The Seleço will go into the match as clear favourites, but the South Koreans will be buoyed by their victory over Portugal, which secured their place in this round.
Will South Korea’s Cinderella run to the quarterfinals continue? Or will Tite’s Brazilian juggernaut continue?
Brazil Lineups, Form and Team News
Neymar of Paris St-Germain has missed Brazil’s last two matches after injuring his ankle in the first 2-0 win over Serbia.
The 30-year-return old’s on Monday is “a possibility,” according to Brazilian doctors, but it remains to be seen whether he will be fit to play.
If the doctors declare him unfit, Alex Sandro, Alex Telles, and Danilo, who are also injured, will join him in the hospital.
Casemiro, Richarlison, Vini Jr, Raphinha, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, and Alisson Becker are expected to return to the starting lineup after making numerous changes last time out.
Brazil Possible Lineups (4-3-3): Alisson; Militao, Marquinhos, Silva, Danilo; Paqueta, Casemiro, Neymar; Raphinha, Richarlison, Vinicius Jr
South Korea Lineups, Form and Team News
Hwang Hee-chan, who missed South Korea’s first two matches due to thigh problems, played 25 minutes in his last appearance. The 26-year-old scored the game-winning goal against Portugal off the bench and could return to the starting lineup.
Son Heung-min was credited with the assist, and the 30-year-old is expected to start on the left flank in his 108th game for the national team.
Cho Gue-sung, who scored twice against Ghana, is expected to complete the front three, while Napoli’s Kim Min-jae will play in central defense.
South Korea Possible Lineups (4-2-3-1): Seung-gyu; Moon-hwan, Kyung-won, Young-gwon, Jin-su; In-beom, Woo-young; Hee-chan, Kang-in, Heung-min; Gue-sung
Brazil vs South Korea Stats and H2H
Brazil has won six of the seven previous meetings between these two countries, which have been nearly all one-sided. Most recently, in a friendly match in June, Tite’s team destroyed South Korea 5-1.
After Richarlison’s early goal, Ui-jo Hwang actually tied the score, but Neymar’s brace, along with goals from Philippe Coutinho and Gabriel Jesus, ensured the five-time World Cup champions a convincing victory.

Brazil vs South Korea Prediction
Dani Alves, Brazil’s veteran fullback, called his team’s surprise defeat to Cameroon “a warning signal.” Tite may well revert to the side that denied Serbia and Switzerland a single shot on goal in response to the klaxon that loss sounded.
Paulo Bento’s team began the tournament without a shot on goal against Uruguay, and they may struggle again against a Brazil team that has proven to be more functional than flair-laden thus far.
After defeating Portugal, Son Heung-min warned, “No one knows the world of football, especially now.”
Unlike most games in the tournament thus far, we anticipate a massive scoreline in this 1/8 final. Brazil has yet to have a single match with more than 2.5 goals, owing to their usual possession-based performance that does not leave much space for their opponents.
South Korea is a far weaker team, as evidenced by specific moments during the group stage. Brazil, we believe, will come for a massive result.
