One of the biggest games in this year's World Cup is set to take place on Friday as Brazil takes on Belgium in the quarterfinals. This is a game between two incredible sides that are stacked with amazing players. We will be heavily entertained in this match.
Brazil entered this tournament as favorites to win and have been very impressive. The likes of Coutinho, Neymar, and Willian have all impressed and they have managed to win most of their games. This will be the first big test for Brazil since they have not played a top team in this tournament so far. There are injury problems in the Brazil camp with Marcelo unlikely to play. This will be a big loss for the 2002 champions but there is enough talent in the side to make up for it. Brazil will need to play at the top of their game if they want to win this game since anything but 100% will cause trouble.

On the other side of the coin, Belgium are looking very good. The Red Devils had a scare against Japan in the round of 16 but fought back well and managed to win the game. The victory showed character and that will be important in the later stages of the World Cup. As far as talent is concerned, Belgium match Brazil in every part of the field. This side has the likes of Kompany, De Bruyne, Hazard and Lukaku playing for them and with such talent, it seems like they will be hard to beat.
This game is going to be hard to predict but I am going to pick Belgium to win. The Red Devils are incredibly talented and I think they are more prepared for this game than Brazil. Belgium have already played tough opposition and the squad is ready for bigger tests while Brazil seems to be squeezing through weaker teams. We are getting a great price to wager on Belgium to win and as a result that is the best bet for this game.
