Croatia vs Brazil Score prediction

The “terrifying” Brazil received high acclaim from Zlatko Dalic, who referred to Tite’s team as “the most potent and finest team in this World Cup.”

But he has a strategy. Replicate Switzerland. Switzerland opposed Brazil the best and had the finest tactics, according to Dalic. “We must follow the Swiss example.” Brazil may have prevailed in that match during the group round, but it took Casemiro 83 full minutes to finally shatter Switzerland’s will.

Although Croatia may possess superior ball control to their Swiss counterpart, Brazil stepped up their game against South Korea, combining to deadly effect with a frontline that once again features Neymar.

To say Croatia would falter would be a serious miscalculation of their evident grit.

Prediction : Croatia 0-2 Brazil
