Brazil will continue their hunt for a first World Cup triumph in 20 years on Monday, as they take on South Korea in the round of 16. This promises to be an exciting match-up between two talented sides, with the Asian nation likely to be in great confidence after a recent win over Portugal.

World Cup 2022 Preview 

Brazil remain one of the clear favourites to win the World Cup in Qatar, and they will be looking to book their spot in the last eight of the competition on Monday evening. Tite will likely recall a host of players back into the starting eleven after the coach made changes across the field for their final group stage game against Cameroon.

That match ultimately ended in defeat for Brazil, as they were edged out by the African nation. However, they were extremely strong in the competition before that fixture, as they recorded back-to-back wins against Serbia and Switzerland. The goal that they conceded against Cameroon was one of the first shots on target that Brazil have faced in the competition this year, but the odds have South Korea as the massive underdogs for this fixture.

South Korea produced a minor miracle to reach the round of 16 at the World Cup, as they landed a massive win against Portugal in their final fixture in Group H. Only a win would keep their hopes of progression alive, while Uruguay also fell short in recording the three-goal margin they needed to finish in the second spot.

The Asian nation scored the crucial winning goal in the 91st minute of that fixture, as Wolves star Hwang Hee-Chan netted the winner with virtually the last kick of the game. Still, they had a nervous wait to see whether they had made it through to the round of 16, as a late Uruguay goal against Ghana would have condemned them to third. 

Brazil vs South Korea Head to Head

These two nations met earlier this year, with Brazil running out 5-1 winners in June. However, this will be the first competitive meeting between the two nations. Brazil has won six of the previous seven matches between the sides, while South Korea has won on just one occasion.

Brazil vs South Korea Prediction

South Korea have shown throughout the competition that they have what it takes to stand up against the better teams. However, Brazil’s strong record in this fixture, and the fact that they have progressed from their previous seven fixtures at this stage of the competition make them hard to look past.
