Brazil must pay close attention to Belgium's attackers.

"The last, and only time Brazil and Belgium played each other in World Cup was way back in 2002 when the South Americans were the eventual winners", Barreto added.

Both lines will be led by powerhouse strikers.

In the previous five outings against Brazil, Belgium has managed just one win but the sixth clash between the two footballing giants can end up with a different scoreline and Belgium has all the potential to do so.

"If we play well against Brazil, we can attract even more supporters".

Brazil are unbeaten in their last 15 matches in all competitions (W11 D4), conceding just three goals in that run. After finishing the group stage with a flawless record, the Red Devils were made to work hard, as they came back from two goals down before finally winning their Round of 16 tie against Japan deep into injury time.

Belgium won the first ever game between eh two sides, back in 1963, but Brazil have had the upper hand in the following three meetings.

That's then followed by the day's second quarter-final in Kazan between tournament favourites Brazil and Belgium in a match-up that could well prove to be one of the best yet at Russian Federation 2018 with six City players featuring in the two squads.

I have no complaints about it - he is playing well, Brazil are winning while other traditionally strong teams have gone home, and the team is scoring at the right time and playing good football - but people insist on focusing on a minor thing that really isn't so important.

"I think Kevin De Bruyne's influence in our team has been a lot deeper, a little bit more earlier, allowing his team to have the influence that we have in the final third and being a real playmaker for us".

The kick off time for the match is 7pm.

After two days rest and recuperation - for both players and fans alike! - the World Cup finals get back underway with a vengeance in Russian Federation today with two mouth-watering quarter-finals to look forward to.
