Israel vs Brazil: times, how to watch on TV, stream online | U20 World Cup
Free-scoring Brazil take on Ofir Haim’s talented squad at the Estadio San Juan del Bicentenario in the quarter-final stage.
Israel will be looking to make history against Brazil in the quarter-finals of the World Cup Under 20 in Argentina. The game will be played at Estadio San Juan del Bicentenario with both sides looking to secure a place in the final four of the competition.
Brazil came into the tournament as favourites to lift the trophy but were humbled in their opening game by a strong Italy side. Since then, however, they have impressed and boast some of the tournament’s most impressive young players. Santos striker Marcos Leonardo has scored four times in four matches, aided by the creativity of PSV Eindhoven winger Sávio.
Israel’s route to the final eight has been less comprehensive but they have made it this far on merit. In the last-16 they knocked out an impressive Uzbekistan team and will be eager to prove themselves against Brazil.

Form guide for Israel vs Brazil
Let’s have a look at the most recent games for these two teams:
They come to this game after beating Uzbekistan 1-0 and have defied pre-tournament predictions in their first U20 World Cup. They are undoubtedly the underdogs for this match against favourites Brazil. Their best chance is to rely on their defensive solidity, helped by the highly-rated Hapoel Tel Aviv duo Stav Lemkin and El Yam Kancepolsy.
The South Americans breezed through their Round of 16 fixture against Tunisia with a 4-1 win, although they will be weakened by the suspension of defender Robert Renan, who picked up a red card. Brazil have looked like one of the most potent attacking forces in the tournament but will have to ensure that ill-discipline is not their undoing. In their last six matches they have received three red cards.
Israel vs Brazil prediction
Brazil have the quality to beat any side in the world and they should have enough to book their place in the final four with a minimal amount of fuss. Their attacking talents should overpower the Israeli backline, provided that they can avoid any unnecessary dismissals.
Prediction: Israel 0-3 Brazil
