Which Streak will end tonight?
Both Brazil and Beligum enter tonight's match looking to break some interesting streaks. Brazil has been eliminated by a European side in each of the previous three World Cups, their last knockout victory over a European side was a 2-0 victory over Germany in the 2002 World Cup Final. Belgium has never beaten a South American side in the knockout stages, failing to score even a single goal in any of those matches.

Battle of Two Heavyweights
The match up tonight in Kazan is one between heavyweights. Both Brazil and Belgium were considered favorites to make long runs in the World Cup. With disappointing performances by Germany, Portugal, Argentina and Spain, these two sides are considered the best remaining in the field.
