World Cup quarterfinal fixtures, previews and tips

The 2018 World Cup quarterfinal matches take place this Friday and Saturday

After Tuesday’s matches, we will be down to eight teams at the 2018 World Cup, with several notable omissions including Germany and Spain.

The exit of these two teams illustrates that nothing is certain at this tournament, although Brazil are the outright favourites and look the strongest team left in the World Cup.

Tite’s men have won their past three matches by a 2-0 scoreline and now have a tough test in the form of Belgium, although the Red Devils looked defensively flimsy against Japan and will have to play a better game to win this match.

The winner of that match will clash with either Uruguay or France, with these teams kicking off the quarter final stage of the World Cup and we’re expecting Les Bleus to land the spoils.

Didier Deschamps’ side beat Argentina 4-3 thanks to a virtuoso performance from Kylian Mbappe, with the Parisian now looking to put a stubborn Celeste defence to the sword.

We’re yet to find out whether England can reach the last eight and play either Switzerland or Sweden, although one of the above teams will be a semi-finalist, with Colombia hoping to beat the Three Lions.

Finally, we will see if the hosts of the tournament can unthinkably become last four material, with Russia having knocked out Spain at the last stage and they will feel confident of dealing with a modest Croatia team.

Friday 6 July
Uruguay 15:00 France
Brazil 19:00 Belgium

Saturday 7 July
Sweden 15:00 England
Russia 19:00 Croatia
