World Cup 2018 favourites Brazil face Belgium in the quarter-finals, after the Red Devils maintained their 100 per cent record in Russia with a dramatic late win against Japan.

footballexpert.com verdict: Brazil remain tournament favourites but face their toughest challenge so far in Russia when they take on Belgium in the quarter-finals. Belgium have won all four matches they have played to get to this stage, even if they left it very late to beat Japan, and Neymar and co will definitely not have it all their own way on Friday. This could go all the way to the dreaded penalty shoot-out.
