05-12-2022 KBC round of 16 world cup game today Brazil vs South Korea

When they play against South Korea on Monday, Brazil will keep going in their mission to win the World Cup for a record sixth time. The matchup in the round of 16 will take place at Stadium 974 in Ras Abu Aboud, which is located in Doha.

As a result of their first-place performance in Group G, the Brazilians have earned a spot in the round of 16. The South Koreans, on the other hand, moved on to the next round by taking second place in Group H.

Are the players on Tite's side capable of living up to the hype? Or will South Korea pull off another surprise in this year's World Cup? It is time to examine both points of view in further detail.

Let's begin with Brazil, who finished tied for first place in Group G with Switzerland on six points after recording a record of two victories and one defeat during the group stage.

The South Americans had won their previous two matches, 2-0 against Serbia and 1-0 against Switzerland. However, in their most recent match, they were defeated by Cameroon by a score of 1-0.

Not only did Brazil's defeat on Friday bring an end to their nine-game undefeated streak, but it also brought an end to their 17-game unbeaten run. During that time frame, they maintained a clean sheet count of 12.

Despite this, it is anticipated that Tite's team will make a comeback once the elimination round begins. After all, in their previous 32 matches across all competitions, they had only been defeated twice, and both losses were very minor.

After a scoreless draw with Uruguay and a defeat at the hands of Ghana in their first two group matches, South Korea seemed to have little chance of advancing in the competition.

Hwang Hee-chan scored the game-winning goal for South Korea in the 91st minute of their most recent match against Portugal, which allowed them to advance to the next round by the narrowest of margins.

South Korea advanced to the next round based on goals scored, since they had scored two more goals than Uruguay did. Both squads ended with four points, but South Korea moved on to the next round.

The youngsters coached by Paulo Bento have now lost only one of their previous six matches across all competitions. When you consider the situation as a whole, you will see that they have two losses among their previous 12.

In recent years, Brazil and South Korea have competed against one another in the friendly context of two matches. In 2019, Brazil's victory was by a score of 3-0, and in June of this year, they routed South Korea by a score of 5-1.

The only win that South Korea has ever had against Brazil was in 1999. As a direct consequence of this, the South Americans have emerged victorious in six of the seven contests that have taken place between the two sides.

The status of Neymar's injury is still unknown at this time for Brazil. Tite made nine different adjustments during the last match, which indicates that he will likely make many more adjustments on Monday.

It should come as no surprise that Son Heung-min is considered South Korea's most dangerous man. Cho Gue-sung, who scored twice against Ghana, will partner him in the attack. Cho Gue-sung scored twice.

In spite of South Korea's impressive performance against Portugal, Brazil shouldn't have too much trouble advancing to the quarterfinals of the competition.
