Getting themselves involved in an exciting and thrilling last 16 battle against Japan, Belgium are expecting something similar or ever more eye catching as they face five time world cup winner, Brazil on Friday, July 6.
Having to come back from two goals down in their previous game, Red Devils, certainly not looking for that similar kind of experience as the result might be different if they have to do it against Selecao.
Still keen on proving the quality of their golden generation, head coach, Roberto Martinez might opted to change his line up this time around as their defense once again prove rather fragile with their normal offensive minded line up.
Some tweak in the midfield area might be Martinez’s best option in giving that tighter defensive protection for Belgium’s back three when facing the highly talented Brazil attacking players.
Despite their seemingly fragile defensive, Red Devils can expect that their offensive players continue their positive performances so far and look to trouble their opponent.
Brazil themselves certainly arrived into the quarter finals without lacking any confidence, despite having to face one of the most talented teams in this World Cup.
Tite’s side will be looking to put lots of pressure on Belgium’s defense, that haven’t been looking solid at all throughout the tournament.
Meanwhile, at the back, Selecao themselves have been really tight so far and that should also provide that extra confidence boost for the tactician in his side’s attempt on stopping Red Devils’ offensive threats.
Knowing that both teams have plenty talented and quality players, football fans will be expecting a quality game with plenty excitement, though some tactical battle might also happen in this late stage of the tournament.
Probable line up:
Belgium: Thibaut Courtois(g); Jan Vertonghen, Vincent Kompany, Toby Alderweireld; Axel Witsel, Kevin De Bruyne, Nacer Chadli, Thomas Meunier; Marouane Fellaini, Eden Hazard; Romelu Lukaku.
Brazil: Alisson(g); Fagner, Thiago Silva, Miranda, Filipe Luis/Marcelo; Fernandinho, Paulinho; Willian, Philippe Coutinho, Neymar; Gabriel Jesus
