Competition World Cup 2018 – Quarter Final
Start Date 06 July 2018 – 19:00 GMT
Venue Kazan Arena
Referee Milorad Mazic, Serbia

This could possibly be the biggest match of the World Cup so far with one of the best teams in world football coming up against one of the rising stars.

Brazil had a less dramatic route to their quarter-final as they registered a 2-0 win over Mexico to book a date with Belgium. It’s been an eventful tournament so far for Neymar, who has produced moments of brilliance but still been no stranger to controversy.

Brazil will be without midfielder Casemiro who is suspended due to an accumulation of bookings. Manchester City ace Fernandinho is set to replace the Real Madrid man. Marcelo, who missed the Mexico, clash could also be on the sidelines with Filipe Luis expected to play at left back.

Fagner struggled against Mexico but will keep his place in the team if Danilo fails to recover from injury in time.
Philippe Coutinho, Neymar, and Luis are all one booking away from a one-match ban.
Douglas Costa is back in full training but may have to settle for a place on the bench following Willian’s performance last time out.

Roberto Martinez’s men road to the quarterfinals has been exceptionally strange. Belgium started the tournament on a high note, thrashing Panama and Tunisia by a combined scoreline of 8-2. Their final match of the group, they met unbeaten side England and registered a 1-0 win, topping group G. Having maintained a 100% win, Belgium came dangerously close to a humiliating round of 16 exit at the hands of Japan on Monday night, coming from 2-0 down to win 3-2 courtesy of a Nacer Chadli injury-time winner.

Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany will continue at the heart of Belgium’s three-man defence after returning to full fitness. Thomas Meunier, Jan Vertonghen, Youri Tielemans, Leander Dendoncker and De Bruyne are one booking away from a one-match ban.
