BRA vs KOR Fantasy Football Tips

When Japan and Croatia square off in the round of 16 on Monday at the Al Janoub Stadium, they’ll try to claim another spectacular victory at the tournament. Amazingly, Hajime Moriyasu’s team won Group E ahead of Spain and Germany, while the 2018 runners-up had to settle for second place in Group F behind Morocco.

10. Takefusa Kubo

11. Takuma Asano 

Injury Report, Unavailability, Expected Changes and Strategy 

  • After Ko Itakaru was deemed unable to compete in this match, Takehiro Tomiyasu should step in to fill in.
  • Wataru Endo, a midfielder for Stuttgart, overcame a fitness worry to enter that game as a substitute. Right-back Hiroki Sakai has also returned to training, while Takefusa Kubo is once again questionable because of muscular soreness.
  • The Japan manager is experiencing the best type of selection difficulty in the final third, as Doan has undoubtedly done enough to replace the injured Kubo but Mitoma’s efforts might not be sufficient to defeat Daichi Kamada.


1. Dominik Livakovic

2. Josip Juranovic

3. Dejan Lovren

4. Josko Gvardiol

5. Borna Sosa

6. Luka Modric

7. Marcelo Brozovic

8. Mateo Kovacic

9. Andrej Kramaric

10. Marko Livaj

11. Ivan Perisic 

Injury Report, Unavailability, Expected Changes and Strategy 

  • The senior duo of Luka Modric and Dejan Lovren will miss any potential quarterfinal if they are booked here, although Dalic has already stated that he will field a completely fit side for Monday’s game for Croatia.
  • Dalic is planning to remain with his tried-and-true 4-3-3 system, so neither player will lose their spot in the starting lineup here, although there may be room for a change or two in the final third.
  • In the scoreless draw with Belgium, Andrej Kramaric and Marko Livaja both fell short of expectations. However, Dalic has plenty of options up front with Bruno Petkovic, Mislav Orsic, Nikola Vlasic, and Mario Pasalic all competing for playing time.

Who will win today’s FIFA World Cup match?

Japan has every right to believe that another upset is in the works since they have a propensity for lightning-quick counterattacks and a wealth of players waiting in the wings to step up, and Croatia has not been focused on developing a reliable attacking system. While we do anticipate the Samurai Blue to score, trying to score more than once may prove to be tough against a tenacious defence. We wouldn’t be surprised to see Croatia nudge Japan out 2-1.
