Predicted Brazil XI vs Croatia

Brazil are set to play Croatia in the first game of the 2022 World Cup quarter-finals later today.

Barcelona’s Raphinha and Los Blancos’ Vinícius Júnior are predicted to play on the right-side and left-side of Richarlison respectively.

Just like against South Korea, Neymar will probably play as an attacking midfielder behind the forwards’ line.
