This is an extremely tough game to call with both Japan and Croatia fancying their chances of booking a spot in the quarter-finals. Each side have shown some bright spots in the tournament so far but the Croatians will feel they are the ones to beat having avoided defeat in their last nine games in all competitions. However, having beaten both Germany and Spain in the group stage, Japan will believe they can take on the world. This should be an entertaining contest but it could be tough to separate the pair so it is worth backing a draw here with this game potentially the first to need extra-time to determine a winner.



Brazil were surprisingly beaten by Cameroon in their final group game but will recall a host of first-choice players for this Round of 16 games with South Korea. The Brazilians decided to give some of their fringe players some minutes having already booked their spot in the knockout stages and will now be back to full-strength here and that could include Neymar should he overcome a knock. South Korea will need to be at their very best here and while they will be on a high after a dramatic win over Portugal, this is likely to be a step too far so expect Brazil to win this in the 90 minutes.
