We’ve finally got some goals in extra time after a 0-0 stalemate in regulation during Croatia vs. Brazil in the 2022 World Cup quarterfinal. Brazil took a 1-0 on Neymar’s goal in the 105th minute but Croatia have found an equalizer. It was Bruno Petkovic getting the goal and this game now seems destined for penalties.

The 2018 runners-up have had a tough time finding space in Brazil’s defense but finally caught a break. Petkovic was able to find enough of a gap to beat Alisson and tie this match. It was his second goal of the World Cup.
Croatia entered this match as heavy underdogs on DraftKings Sportsbook but now have a golden chance to advance in a penalty shootout, which seems likely. Dominik Livakovic was the hero in the team’s round of 16 shootout against Japan and Croatia have no pressure heading into another shootout.
