ANALYSIS

Brazil vs. Croatia Prediction, Pick, Odds: Will Dominik Livaković Quiet Neymar, Brazil Early?

This game should be a very good game. I honestly expect Brazil to possess the ball a lot more than Croatia. Croatia, for the most part, will try to rely on their very strong defense to hold their own against the very strong attack of Brazil. A lot of people from the get-go will be on Brazil to dominate this game. But in my opinion, this game will be a lot closer than you really think.

Brazil vs. Croatia Prediction

Both of these teams have a very good defense and that has been the strong point of the tournament. Croatia has two shutouts this tournament and Brazil has three shutouts. This should be a good matchup with two very good defenses. Brazil, however, has been playing on another level right now so Croatia is really going to have to come out with all guns blazing for this matchup.

Croatia is led by captain Luka Modric. He is the leader of this Croatian squad and the vocal piece for them also. Brazil has two head monsters at attack with Neymar and Richarlison. Neymar is expected to be back for this game and will give a huge boost to this Brazilian squad. There is one bet I honestly love in this game and that is a first-half draw.

I honestly expect both of these teams to really come out and play defensive at first and not open up to the second half. Brazil has started slowly in most games of this tournament and really picked it up in the second half. I expect the same thing to happen here. I expect it to be 0-0 going into 2nd half and it will open up from there. So with this matchup, I’m riding the first-half draw. Nice plus money to start our morning. I really like this play with the way these two teams have been playing!
