Korea Republic vs. Brazil: What the statistics show

It will be the first time ever that Brazil and Korea Republic will compete against one another. This will be their eighth meeting. Six of the previous seven games (L1) have been won by Brazil, the most recent of which was a 5-1 triumph in June.

Korea Republic has never defeated a South American team at a World Cup, losing four times and drawing twice.

Brazil has lost four of their last ten World Cup games (W5 D1); their previous four losses in the tournament occurred over the course of 36 games (W26 D6).

Korea Republic will play for the first time in the World Cup’s knockout stages since 2010, when they lost to Uruguay in the round of 16. Their only victory in the competition’s five games played after the group stage came against Italy in the round of 16 in 2002 (D1 L3).

Brazil has advanced from each of their last seven World Cup round of 16 games; they only lost one of those seven games in regulation time, losing to Chile on penalties in 2014. When they faced Argentina in 1990, they were last eliminated at this round.

In his last five games as a World Cup manager, Paulo Bento has only lost one game, split between stints with Korea Republic and Portugal. He could become the first Portuguese manager to win a World Cup knockout stage match as this will be his first game in the tournament after the group stage.

Along with another five-game streak at the 1994 World Cup, Brazil’s current five-game goalless streak at the World Cup ranks as the competition’s longest stretch without a first-half goal.

Four of the last seven goals scored by Korea Republic at the World Cup have come in the final 90 seconds or later, making up 11 of their team’s last 12 goals overall. Kim Young-equalizer Gwon’s against Portugal in their most recent match has been their lone first-half goal throughout this streak (27th minute).

At the 2022 World Cup, Brazil’s Rodrygo has received three yellow cards from opposing players, including two last time out against Cameroon. Despite still being in the competition, this is the most of any player.

In the 91st minute of Korea Republic’s previous match, Son Heung-min scored his first goal of the 2022 World Cup by assisting Hwang Hee-Chan on the goal that ensured their group’s qualification. He has yet to score in this tournament, and in his last 13 World Cup shots, he has only managed one goal.
