Spain vs Morocco

Spain vs Morocco

25 June 2018 – Kaliningrad Stadium, Kaliningrad Russia

Spain boast several of the best attacking players in the world with claims to being the best in the world at the moment in their position (the sublime form of Spanish striker Diego Costa has been a sight to behold in his tournament). Morocco have been well-organised in defense and at times, desperately unlucky in attack, however, The Spanish are deserved favorites.

Why are Spain favorites?

We could name the entire 23-man Spanish squad as the reason Spain are favorites for this match, but keeping it to just 3, it should become quickly and clearly apparent

Diego Costa – scores goals from any position. If he scores 2 more goals like he did in the first match against Portugal, Spain will not be stopped.

David Silva – The Manchester City star is a midfield puppeteer and has all the silky skills to pull the strings. Despite his 32 years, Silva is a superb athlete that can run all day from box-to-box as well as a sharp eye for goal. The link man to Costa and Isco upfront.

Isco – The young Real Madrid man is blessed with blistering speed and a has a bag of tricks to go with his fancy footwork.

Denmark vs France

Denmark vs France

26 June 2018 – Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow, Russia

France muddled their way through the early part of the tournament and were lucky to defeat Australia 2-1 in their opening match. That said, France are favorites for the Denmark clash.

Why are France favorites?

France are favorites just as much built on reputation (coming into the 2018 FIFA World Cup as one of the heavyweight favorites) and expectation that their star-studded group of players will finally gel as a unit.

However, don’t expect a battle-toughened Danish side to hand them the win on a platter. This could be close – could a draw be a good bet?

Match Odds

Team  Betway  William Hill   888 Casino
France 5/4 5/4 23/18

Denmark 14/5 5-1 16/5

Nigeria vs Argentina

Nigeria vs Argentina

26 June 2018 – Krestovsky Stadium, St Petersburg Russia

As many expected, (including our panel of experts at Online Casino Canada), Argentina have struggled so far at this World Cup. Argentina are starting favorites for the clash with Nigeria, primarily, because everyone expects them to be.

Why are Argentina favorites?

Argentina are favorites, as, in Lionel Messi, they boast one of the greatest soccer players to ever lace up a soccer boot. However, Messi will need some help from his friends in order to defeat Nigeria who are also looking to finish the group play on a high. They have botched their opening two games with a draw and a loss, and now must win in order to qualify.

As recently as November 2017, Nigeria blasted Argentina 4-2 in an international friendly on Russian soil. This match has the feeling that absolutely anything could happen and it probably will.

Match Odds

Team Betway William Hill  888 Casino
Nigeria 5-1 24/5 5-1
Draw 7/2 17/5 31/10
Argentina 8/15 8/15 6/11

South Korea vs Germany

South Korea vs Germany

27 June 2018 – Kazan Arena, Kazan, Russia

Out-of-sorts after being defeated 1-0 by Mexico in their opening game, Germany are looking to resume their usual high standards against South Korea. Germany are favorites to bang in as many goals as possible for a better goal difference, could determine their opponents in the first round of knockout play.

Why are Germany favorites?

Germany are favorites for the clash with the Koreans simply because they have to win and win well. Germany’s players have a long history of performing under pressure precisely when they need to as evidenced by their miracle 2-1 come-from behind win against Sweden. It would be a major surprise should they fail to perform against South Korea.

Match Odds

South Korea 13-1` 12-1 16-1

Serbia vs Brazil

Serbia vs Brazil

27 June 2018 – Otkrytiye Arena, Moscow, Russia

In a similar situation to Germany, the Brazilians find themselves looking towards a win in their final round-robin-game of this World Cup in order to secure a place in the knockout phase. Brazil are favorites on pure expectation and World Cup-winning tradition alone.

Why are Brazil favorites?

Man-for-man, the Brazilians simply ooze talent compared to the hard-working Serbs. Philippe Coutinho for one, could have more natural talent than the entire Serb midfield combined.

The rise of Coutinho as a genuine mid-field superstar under new coach Tite has encapsulated Brazil’s re-emergence as a World Soccer Superpower, and he has been among the best players on the park in each of Brazil’s matches to date.

Match Odds

Serbia 11/2 13/2 13/2

England vs Belgium

England vs Belgium

28 June 2018 – Kaliningrad Stadium, Kaliningrad, Russia

England are a young side on the rise, but do they have enough experience to test Belgium’s bevvy of talent?

As the answer to that question about England is unknown, Belgium are favorites for this Group G clash.

Why are Belgium favorites?

Outside the usual favorites of past winners, Belgium are the perhaps the best side on paper in Russia who are yet to win a World Cup.

England are relatively experienced in comparison.

Belgium boast a star-studded line-up. Kompany, De Bruyne, Hazard and Romelu Lukaku are all genuine superstars. Lukaku, in particular, has been in sublime touch since the tournament began and is near the top of the ladder in the race for the Golden Boot.
