The two teams have left very good feelings in the group stage and could meet very soon
Brazil and Spain would face each other in a hypothetical quarterfinal
spain y Brazil They are leaving very good feelings in this World Cup. Luis Enrique’s men can compete against anyone and It has already been shown that they have a goalwhich has been the main problem of ‘la roja’ in recent years. After a good game against Germanythe Spanish team continues to go from strength to strength towards the round of 16.
The same can be said of Brazil, which is not weighing on the favorite poster that many have put on it. Without Neymar until the round of 16Tite’s men still have a lot of gunpowder up front and a rocky and fearsome defense, with Marquinhos, Thiago Silva and Militao, among others. The ‘canarinha’ in the World Cups is always one of the teams to follow and, for the moment, it is not disappointing.
With the two leading teams in the group, if everything remains the same on the last day and they qualify as first, Brazil and Spain could meet relatively soon in the knockout phase. In the round of 16, they would face different teams, but in the event that both win their respective matches and qualify, there would be a Brazil-Spain in the quarterfinals. The game would be on Friday, December 9 at 4:00 p.m.
If that meeting took place, it would be very showy to see, with two different proposals. The last confrontation between the two was in the final of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, although it ended up being played on August 7, 2021 due to the pandemic. The match ended 2-1 in favor of the Brazilians after reaching extra time. Despite the defeat It should be remembered that the players called up to the Olympic Games are not, for the most part, those called up by the selectors in higher caliber tournaments such as the World Cup.
It would be very different if Spain finished second in the group. That would allow Luis Enrique’s men to go for the other part of the box, with some rivals, a priori, more affordable.
