Croatia Vs Brazil - Friday 9th 15:00
Brazil 5 or more shots on target
Over 3.5 Brazil corners
Thiago Silva over 70 match passes
Brazil and Croatia go head-to-head in the quarter final with the Brazilian side looking very strong and Croatia have stumbled their way through so far without any standout performances.
Brazil the obvious favourites and will be expected to dominate the ball, Thiago silva has averaged 77 passes per game in this World Cup and with them being the possession team you can expect him to rack them up again here.
Brazil average 7 shots on target per match this World Cup and with the attacking players at their disposal against an ageing Croatia side who will likely set up defensive it’s hard to not see them testing the keeper on numerous occasions.
Brazil have again averaged 7 corners earned per match this World Cup and with the same reasons as the match shots it’s hard to see them not getting a few corners here. Exciting wide players and players from midfield who arrive in the box and shoot from distance they should get a minimum of 4 corners here.
Netherlands Vs Argentina - Friday 9th 19:00
Over 2.5 match cards
Over 2.5 Netherlands corners
Over 2.5 Argentina corners
Netherlands and Argentina do battle in the first quarter final of the 2022 World Cup and it’s a match between two of the big guns. Argentina are slight favourites, but I do feel this game can go either way which makes for a great game.
Both teams average match cards is just over 2 per game but now at the quarter final stages tensions rise and the pressure is increased. Spanish referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz renowned in Spain for issuing cards averaged 4.7 cards per game.
Both teams have been strong on the corners this competition with a combined match total of 9.2 and both teams averaging over 4 each per game. Both sides have definitely looked vulnerable defensively which wasn’t expected coming into this and with the attacking players on show you can expect both teams to create plenty of chances here.

Key stats & talking points
Croatia are looking to make it past the quarter-final stage of the World Cup for the second tournament in a row, reaching the final back in 2018.
However, Brazil have Neymar back in action and the PSG man is no doubt keen to reach his first-ever World Cup final with his country.
Elsewhere, Lionel Messi is eyeing a spot back in the final for the second time after his loss to Germany back in 2014.
But Messi and co. are up against Louis Van Gaal, a man with an excellent WC record. Should Netherlands win or take the game to penalties on Friday, Van Gaal will have gone 12 matches unbeaten at the World Cup.
