Brazil vs Belgium
I think goals are what we can expect here. Goals on both sides. Probably completely different game from the first quarterfinal between Uruguay and France that is going on right now. There BTW, my bet was winner with first goal scored only in the 40' minute.
Many considers Belgium as a team who can go all the way on this WC. I was thinking something similar too. But I am not so sure anymore. Cause Brazil will be their by far toughest opponent so far. After all, the same as they are the toughest opponent for Brazil so far. But if nothing else, Brazil already has played against some really tough opponents. Their group was way stronger plus Mexico in R16 was serious opponent. In all those games Brazil managed very well. They won 3 of 4, every time without conceding goal. The only draw was at the premier game vs Switzerland, 1:1 and that was the only goal Brazil conceded. But it should be mentioned that Swiss goal wasn't regular. It was after foul and had to be disallowed but it wasn't.
In attack, Brazil wasn't perfect, we should say that. Against Costa Rica (2:0), it was 0:0 till 90' minute. But Brazil with all offensive power they have, creates enough good goal chances, only their efficiency wasn't high as it could be.
In any case, I have no doubt Brazil will score today. Cause, Belgium although is very dangerous side when their attack is in question (12 goals so far), in defense are not too trustworthy. They play with only three players behind and thus there is too much space between those defenders. I think any top side would be able to use this. Even Japan was 2:0 up against them. Not to talk how Tunisia has scored twice against their defense. But Belgium has delivered in attack with 5 against Tunisia, 3 against Japan so no one talking about their vulnerable defense. We'll see how this is going to look now when they face the top favorite to win the WC. I am not sure Belgium can make this time enough good things upfront and thus to erase everything bad that will going on in front of their own goal. But I am positive Belgium will score too, at least once.
This could turn out to be the best game of the tournament if we see some really early goal but even if not, 1:1 is the least I expect.
