World Cup 2014 Prediction: Brazil vs. Netherlands

Even as the Brazilians (both the players and fans) attempt to recover from the devastating failure that was their 7-1 loss in the semi-finals against Germany, fans still watch and wait anxiously to see if the Brazilian team is able to get back up on its last legs to at least snag the 3rd place ranking in this World Cup. More honestly, the world has the hosts in their sight to see if there might be a repeat of their epic blunder, especially when faced with a surprisingly solid and consistent team such as the Netherlands.

Both equally strong teams in their own right and each with a solid reputation to boast of, Netherlands’ Oranje and the Argentinians will match wits and athleticism on the football field in less than 12 hours to determine who the better team is.

World Cup 2014 Prediction: Brazil vs. Germany

Brazil-Germany-WC2014World Cup 2014 Prediction: Brazil vs. Germany

In a sensational twist during Brazil’s last outing on the football field against the Colombians, the odds in their favour seem to have been greatly overturned — Brazil’s star player, Neymar, was horribly injured with a fractured vertebrae which saw him being stretchered off the field while team captain Thiago Silva summarily got suspended from participating in the semi-finals match against Germany after being issued a yellow card. For a team with a record and reputation to maintain, things seem to be going quite badly for hosts Brazil. The pressure is doubled and mounting as well due to the fact that the Brazilians are scheduled to meet with the formidable German team next.

The Germans have done quite well for themselves thus far this World Cup season, although not extraordinarily so. With exception of their match against Portugal, the Germans could be said to have just scraped by with draws/ties and close wins. By applying the right amount of pressure and mounting a strong enough attack, they might be able to take advantage of Brazil’s badly timed misfortunes to book themselves a place in the finals.

Brazil, however, is by no means handicapped or stunted as the team is not short of talented players who are more than capable of contributing to their team’s glory. If the players’ natural football flairs and talents are combined with the right strategies, we believe the Brazil has about as much fighting chance as they would have has if Neymar had not been out of commission. Yet oftentimes, a team’s performance can be greatly affected by morale and Brazilians can only hope that the ill fates of Neymar and Silva have not put the rest of the team in a negative funk. Still, the home ground advantage might just come in handy and be the motivating factor for Brazil to give it their all and fight their way through their disadvantages.

Our prediction: Brazil wins 2-1 or 1-0

World Cup 2014 Prediction: Argentina vs. Belgium

World Cup 2014 Prediction: Argentina vs. Belgium

Both Argentina & Belgium have racked up an impressive winning streak thus far with both sides successfully winning every match they’ve played and without even drawing against their opponents. We can only wait in anticipation and excitement as both these teams are set to meet on competitive grounds as we know that only one team can go home victorious!

We believe that both teams are generally well matched in terms of strength and skill but that the Argentinians do have their work cut out for them if they are looking to guarantee their progress to the semi-finals as their victories thus far have been narrow ones whilst the Belgians will surely raise the stakes by applying more pressure. This is evident from Argentina’s last performance where they struggled to break through Switzerland’s defenses to strike home the goals they needed despite controlling much of the flow of the game and only managed to score their winning goal during extra time.

With the right combination of attack and defense strategies, Argentina could level the playing field and relatively raise their chances to knock out their European opponents. The Belgians, on the other hand, look dead set on continuing their World Cup 2014 run this season and are most certainly not ready to head home anytime soon so we are pretty confident that an intense match lies ahead between these two European football nations.

Our prediction: Belgium beats Argentina 2-0 or 2-1
