The Round of 16 clashes can see some big names getting out of the competition. Argentina can face an early challenge from one of the dark horses of the tournament, Denmark. The Danes surprised everyone by reaching the semi-finals of the Euro 2020 and missed out on the final by a whisker. They might not boast of the biggest names, but they attack and defend aggressively as a unit.
If Germany tops their group, then they might come up against the finalists from the last world cup, Croatia. Both the teams are under transition and have lost some key players since the last world cup. This might be a very intriguing battle.
Two South American powerhouses can face each other in this round. Brazil vs Uruguay can turn out to be a belter of a game. Samba boys will be the favourites to win but the Uruguayans shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Spain will be hoping that their talented young brigade can put up a show in the world cup. The Spaniards will be hoping to top the group and avoid the mighty Belgians in the round of 16. If they face off, The Red Devils might just have enough experience to beat Luis Enrique’s men.
Expected Teams to reach Top 16:
Quarter Finals Lineup could be like this:
Netherlands v Argentina
Germany v Brazil
England v France
Belgium v Portugal
The Quarter Final lineup is mouthwatering. The Big guns from Europe and South America will be lining up against each other.
Brazil will have a great opportunity to make it to the semi-finals against German opposition in transition. The Germans served the Brazilians their biggest ever loss in a world cup game in their own county back in 2014. The Samba boys are one of the favourites for the tournament and can take their revenge.
There is a huge possibility that France will be up against England. Both the teams have a lot of star players. However, France has already tasted success with Deschamps, but England has faltered at the final hurdle in the Euros recently with Southgate. French looks the favourite for this one but not by much.
The Netherlands are known for their one-touch passing football which has caught the eye of many in recent years. However, Argentina is looking like a different team from what they were in the previous few world cups. They have recently won the Copa America crown and have more than enough to send the Dutch home.
This might be the last world cup for Ronaldo and he has a team with him which can win the tournament. The Portuguese team have good depth and although they will face a strong Belgium team, they have players who know how to win trophies, unlike the Belgians.

Portugal v France
FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022: Final Prediction
Brazil v France
Dark Horse: Denmark
The Danes are a very resolute side, and, on their day, they can beat anyone. They don’t boast of World Class names, but they have hard-working players who do their job with perfection.
The likes of Eriksen, Dolberg, Damsgaard, and Schmeichel are the backbone of this European nation. They play in a 3-4-3 system and their wingbacks can cause havoc on the opposition. They can easily switch their position to a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 depending on the opposition or how the game is panning out.
