Vinicius Junior, Neymar, Richarlison and Lucas Paqueta were all on target as the Selecao dominated against the Asian side.

Croatia had a less than easy way into the final eight as they came up against Japan in the previous round.

Ivan Perisic pulled his team level after they fell behind late in the first half and forced extra time and penalties.

Brazil are in excellent form and come up against another strong team so there could be plenty of goals yet again in this game. Backing over 2.5 goals at 4/5 (1.80) may be an appealing bet.
