Likely lineups

The round of 16 match between Brazil and South Korea will be played at 8 p.m. Italian time at Stadium 974 in Doha. The winner between the Greenoros and the Asians will face one of Croatia or Japan.

Tite’s men are definitely favorites but the Brazilian coach has to deal with some unavailable players: in fact, the two full-backs Alex Sandro and Alex Telles are in the pits. Most important for the Greenoro is the return of Neymar, who was injured in the opener against Serbia. Juventus’ Danilo is also available again.

Paulo Bento’s South Korea will play their cards with the 4-2-3-1 already seen during the World Cup. Eyes obviously on Tottenham star Heung-min Son, already decisive in the last group match against Portugal.

Probable formations

BRAZIL (4-2-3-1): Allison; Danilo, Militao, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos; Casemiro, Fred; Raphinha, Neymar, Vinicius Junior; Richarlison. Ct. Tite.

SOUTH KOREA (4-2-3-1): Kim Seung-gyu; Kim Moon-hwan, Kim Min-jae, Kim Young-gwon, Kim Jin-Su; Hwang In-beom, Jung Woo-young; Lee Jae-sung, Lee Kang-in, Son Heung-min; Cho Gue-sung. Ct. Bento
