The match between Brazil and Mexico gets underway at 10 P.M. in Samara Arena. The Seleção led by superstar Neymar will be seeking to advance to the next round against the El Tri.
Brazil and Mexico face off on at a high-profile Round of 16 showdown in this year’s World Cup on Monday morning, July 2 in Russia with a spot in the quarterfinals up for grab. The two national football teams clash at Samara Arena with the right to play with either Belgium or Japan in the semifinals.
Brazil had an uphill battle in their group play campaign but managed to advance to the next stage. The Seleção secure its ticket to Round of 16 stage by settling for a 1-1 draw against Switzerland to start in Group E, but the Brazilian national football team suddenly throttled up to full speed. With a couple of 2-0 victories against the Costa Rica and Serbia, Brazil effortlessly secured its spot at the top of its group.
Brazil entered this World Cup 2018 football tournament as one of the top favorites to win the whole thing, and despite concerns over an injury to the nations superstar Neymar, the club continued to gain improvements in game-to-game basis at their group stage campaign, led by attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho’s stellar performance-level play.
The Seleção has been keen when it comes to exploiting the opponent’s hole and convert it to opportunities. The five goals the club has in three games could have been more had it not been for the poor wrapping. But should Neymar and rest of the team start adopting, there may be no better suited squad to win the World Cup 2018 trophy.
As for Mexico, the El Tri lost its final contest of the group stage to Sweden 3–0 and needed a major help from South Korea, which has defeated the Germany 2-0, just to earn its place to the Round of 16 stage after a strong opener to the World Cup that included victories over Die Mannschaft and South Korea.
We will likely witness Mexico try to retain a similar game scheme it resorted against the German squad. The Mexican team knocked off the defending champions 1-0 in the World Cup opener of the group stage.
As for injury reports, Brazil is widely expected to enter the field without its left back Marcelo after he suffered a back injury in the final group stage contest against Serbia. Filipe Luis will fill his role. Douglas Costa will also be missing his second straight match due to muscle tightness. Danilo has already recovered from a thigh injury, but stay on the sideline. Fagner will assume his play at right back. No big restructures are expected for Mexican team as they step in the gridiron.
