Brazil vs. South Korea forecast, time, and live-streaming information
Brazil vs. South Korea: Brazil will face South Korea in the sixth match of the FIFA World Cup 2022 Round of 16. South Korea finished second in a group that includes Uruguay and Ghana, defeating one of the tournament’s biggest teams, Portugal. Brazil lost 0-1 against Cameroon following an outstanding start that saw them advance to the next round after two matches.
Brazil vs. South Korea: Overview
When Cameroon defeated Brazil in their final group match, it was the first time an African team had defeated Brazil. Even though it made little difference in terms of group standings, as Brazil finished first, it had to hurt their pride. South Korea became the second Asian team to reach the Round of 16 after Japan, and they did so in style, overcoming Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portuguese team.
Brazil vs. South Korea: Teams
Brazil exceeded expectations by kicking off the FIFA World Cup 2022. Their display of world-class football comprised brave attacks and stunning goals. However, Brazil’s unexpected loss to Cameroon effectively knocked them out of first position in Group G. That must have been a wake-up call for Brazil, who cannot afford to be complacent against the Taegeuk Warriors, who have just defeated Portugal. The biggest piece of good news for Brazil fans is that Neymar has recovered from his injury suffered against Serbia. He is available to face South Korea.
South Korea must be buzzing after defeating their European counterparts, Portugal. Korea plays fast-paced, thrilling, attacking football while also defending well. They frequently commit potentially-fatal errors in the middle of the field, but this is just the way they love to play.
Brazil vs. South Korea: Head-to-Head
Brazil has previously played South Korea seven times, winning six of them. They must remember, though, the 0-1 loss to the hosts in an international friendly in Seoul in 1999.
Brazil vs. South Korea lineups
Aside from Jesus, Brazil was dealt another blow this week when Alex Telles was ruled out for the duration of the tournament.
Alex Sandro is still out, but Neymar and Danilo are back in the mix, with the latter more likely to start given the critical need for healthy full-backs.
Brazil’s expected lineup (4-2-3-1): 1. Alisson (GK) — 14. Militao, 3. Thiago Silva, 4. Marquinhos 8. Fred, 2. Danilo 5. Casemiro against. 11. Raphinha, 21. Rodrygo vs. 20. Vinicius Jr. vs. 9. Richarlison
Kim Min-jae of Napoli missed the Portugal game after injuring his foot against Uruguay and is doubtful for this encounter. Kwon Kyung-won took his position against Portugal and looked completely at ease.
Wolves forward Hwang Hee-chan came in to score the game-winning goal and may be pushing Cho Gue-sung to start at the top.
South Korea employed a 4-3-3 formation last time out, but had previously preferred a 4-2-3-1 formation, which should return to mimic Brazil’s expected formation.
South Korea’s anticipated starting lineup (4-2-3-1, from right to left): 1. S. Kim (GK) — 15. M.H. Kwon, 4. M. Kim, 19. Y. Kim, 3. J. Kim — 6. Hwang I. versus 11. Hwang H., 18. K.I Lee, 7. Son versus 9. Cho
Neymar, who has returned from injury, will be eager to make an impact and help his team advance. Hwang Hee-Chan, who scored a spectacular goal against Portugal, would most likely start at the head of South Korea’s line.
