How to Watch Brazil vs. Belgium

Crucial replacement

Brazil's World Cup quarter-final against Belgium will pit two of Chelsea's best midfielders against each other, but Brazil's Willian told reporters he will be doing everything he can to send his team mate Eden Hazard home early from Russian Federation.

Late changes by Brazil coach Tite paid off as Renato Augusto's superb header 14 minutes from time dragged the south Americans back into contention.

Since beating Germany 2-0 in the 2002 World Cup final, the five-time victor has been eliminated by European sides in the three subsequent competitions.

Although Martinez was credited with shifting the tactics that meant Belgium posed a threat to Neymar's Brazil throughout an exhilarating quarter-final in Kazan, his players, and De Bruyne in particular, rose to the challenge magnificently.

Argentina lost its Round of 16 clash with France at the ground, which is the home stadium for Russian Premier League side, Rubin Kazan.

Brazil - down 2-0 and trailing for the first time in Russian Federation - seemed to sense the urgency of the situation and poured forward.

Belgium can be backed at 7/5 to reach the last four and that looks the call in what could be one of the best matches of this summer's World Cup.

The pace of Kylian Mbappe could cause problems in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday, but Belgium will not be short of experience at the back.

"I think we switched things up tactically", Man of the Match De Bruyne told reporters at the Kazan Arena.

Seemingly undeterred, Brazil immediately went on the attack, and Willian forced Courtois into a diving save with an awkward cross from the right. In a penalty shoot-out, with Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and more, you'd have to fancy the Belgians. "They gave their all for the team and ran themselves into the ground for us".

Belgium are the highest scoring side in the tournament with 12 goals scored in four games so finding the net is not an issue for Roberto Martinez's men.

"There has been so much debate about Neymar simulating fouls or wasting time on the floor, but I think that in a competition like this - with VAR - we shouldn't be paying too much attention to this", Betfair ambassador and 2002 World Cup victor, Rivaldo said.

Belgium wasted several chances to add a third.

Brazil's usually impregnable defence, which had conceded only six goals in 25 matches under coach Tite, suddenly looked very vulnerable and was repeatedly sliced apart in the opening half hour. One option could see Fernandinho come into the side for a role he is accustomed to playing at Manchester City.

Neymar has been slammed for his theatrics at the World Cup.

Everything you need to know ahead of Brazil and Belgium's quarter-final match on Friday.

Fernandinho put Belgium in front in the 13th minute as Vincent Kompany flicked the ball from a corner kick which then inadvertently came off Fernandinho and into the back of the net. Three touches later, De Bruyne had the ball on his right foot with far too much sight of goal.
