Brazil will go up against South Korea at Stadium 974 in the round of 16 of the Qatar 2022 World Cup looking to move into the quarterfinals. Check out the potential lineups for both teams.
The Qatar 2022 World Cup Round of 16 will have some close matches, but this match between Brazil and South Korea at the 974 Stadium may not be one of them. Read on for more information on potential lineups for both.
Brazil ended their participation in Group G with a loss against Cameroon. This might come as a shock to most, even though they have already qualified for this round. They beat Serbia and Switzerland, so that was enough for first place. The Brazilians will have more starting units in the team after the rest vs.
One of the surprises of the tournament was definitely South Korea. They started Group H as a long shot to get through and it proved to be the case as they went into Matchday 3 winless. Although they did manage to stun Portugal with a goal on aggregate to put them above Uruguay.
Tite did what most coaches tried the days before when their teams were secured in this round. He sat multiple starters against Cameroon, so it’s very reasonable that the Brazilians will have substitutions in their 11. For example, Alisson, Vinicius, Thiago Silva, Casemiro, Richarlison and Marquinhos should all go back in. Given how favorable this match seems maybe Neymar Jr. rests one more game.
Brazil probable lineup: Alisson; Eder Militao, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Danilo; Casemiro, Raphinha, Lucas Paquetá, Vinicius, Neymar, and Richarlison.
South Korea lineup
After the epic ending of group H they had on Matchday 3 it wouldn’t be illogical if the head coach repeats the lineup. The South Koreans were 1-0 down against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal, so the same 11 players could start again.
South Korea probable lineup: Kim Seung-gyu; Kim Moon-Hwan, Kwon Kyung-Won, Kim Min-Jae, Kim Jin-Su; Hwang In-Beom, Jung Woo-Young, Lee Kang-In; Lee Jae-Sung, Cho Gue-Sung, and Son Heung-Min.
