The Brazil vs. Belgium match will be played on Friday, July 6, at the Kazan Arena, Kazan. This is the World Cup quarterfinal match. Brazil eliminated Mexico by 2:0 in the previous round, while Belgium defeated Japan by 3:2.

STATS

  • Brazil recorded three 2:0 victories and one 1:1 draw so far in the World Cup. Five different players scored for them so far, while Coutinho and Neymar are the only players who scored two.
  • Belgium recorded four victories in the tournament so far. They scored 12 goals, which is the most in the first four games. Eight different players scored for them, and Romelu Lukaku is the most efficient in the team, with four goals.

HEAD TO HEAD

These teams played only one match against each other on World Cup. In 2012, Brazil recorded 2:0 victory. Before that, Brazil recorded two wins in friendlies played in 1965 and 1988, but it is interesting that Belgium demolished them in a friendly match played in 1963, by 5:1.

BRAZIL NEWS

After Spain and Germany were kicked out of the tournament, Brazil stands alone as the biggest favorite to win the title. However, they will face a talented Belgium team, filled with Premier League stars such as Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne. Belgium is the best attacking force so far in the tournament and Brazil will have to stop their easy transition from defense to attack in order to get a positive result. However, Brazil will be able to exploit their weak wing defense; their biggest star Neymar is likely to shine in the upcoming match.
