Match Preview

In a re-run of the 2014 World Cup’s (WC) opening game, these nations will meet for only the fourth time since Croatia gained their independence (1991).
The logic behind Croatia’s decision to participate in a friendly with Brazil is obvious. The Croatians face what is arguably the most difficult WC group, with a match against Argentina the key flashpoint for them where progress is concerned. As a seeded side, Brazil should win their group, but face two decent European teams and this match should keep the five-time champions on their toes.
As one would expect, Brazil are in exemplary form, having gone unbeaten in nine matches and last losing in a friendly back in June 2017 to Argentina (1-0). Croatia’s last two friendly games (in March) yielded mixed results. A 2-0 defeat to Peru on March 24 was a result of concern, but just four days later, Croatia dispatched CONCACAF giants Mexico 1-0.
Gustavo Hofman of ESPN has also supported the belief that this friendly will benefit Brazil as much as Croatia, saying: “It will be a decent indicator to see where the Selecao (Brazil) is at right now and how Neymar fits in as he returns to his best. They (Croatia) are a very technical side, they have a great midfield.”
Players to watch: Ivan Rakitić scored the winner against México from the penalty spot, marking his first goal since September 2016.
Brazilian set-piece expert Roberto Firmino should cause Croatia a raft of problems here. His last international goal came in a WC qualifier against Bolivia in October 2016.
Stat attack: In addition to being unbeaten in nine games, Brazil have not conceded in three. They have also scored first in four out of the last five.
Also of potential importance is the fact that Croatia’s last come-from-behind win was back in June 2016, 2-1 against Spain in Euro 2016.
