On Wednesday, we’ll be getting ready to watch France vs Morocco, the last semi-final game, and we’ll soon know who will be going head-to-head in the 2022 FIFA World Cup final. We already know that Argentina has taken the first spot in the final, but who will compete against them to become the newest champion? Morocco or France?
France has a fascinating history with the FIFA World Cup, especially since they have come home victorious twice during the event. They have been competing in the event since the inaugural World Cup in 1930, and their team has been a part of the tournament a total of 15 times, which is more than many other countries in the world.
France is only one of eight countries in the world that have ever won the FIFA World Cup, and out of these countries, only six of them have managed to win it on more than one occasion. France has been the champions twice, they didn’t actually make it that far in their first tournament in 1930. They didn’t make it past the Group Stage. However, they made it to the quarter-finals in their third attempt at the event in 1938, when it was held on their grounds, and then made third place in 1958.
In this tournament so far, France started off incredibly well with a 4-1 victory against Australia, and this luck was continued when they won 2-1 against Denmark. These two games secured them a spot in the round of 16, which means they may have lost their fight when they lost 0-1 against Tunisia. However, they managed to bounce back with a 3-1 victory against Poland and a 2-1 win against England’s lions.
Morocco has only competed in the FIFA World Cup a total of five times in the past. They played for the first time in 1970, and the next times were in 1986, 1994, and 1998. They then didn’t qualify again for another 20 years and managed to compete in the last World Cup in 2018.
Unfortunately for Morocco, they haven’t had the best luck when it comes to the World Cup. When they first competed in 1970, they didn’t make it past the Group Stages and ended up coming 14th overall. Morocco only made it past the Group Stage once in 1986, but they were unfortunately cut short there and didn’t make it to the quarter-finals. In the last World Cup in 2018, Morocco again was stuck in the Group Stage and lost against Iran and Portugal, and also had a draw when playing against Spain.
Morocco has had quite a bit of luck in this year’s FIFA World Cup, which is surprising for the Northern African team. While they didn’t manage to score at all against Croatia, it still ended in a draw. They then did much better against Belgium with a 2-0 win and finished with a 2-1 victory against Canada. Although they had a goalless draw against Spain in the round of 16, they managed to get through to this game by winning the penalty shootout. Their last game was a 1-0 win against Portugal.
Which French players are going to fight for the chance to play in another FIFA World Cup final?
And which of Morocco’s players will be fighting against France to secure their spot in the finals of the World Cup?
2018’s winners are top of the odds and have been predicted as the winners for this game. However, for most of Morocco’s other games, they were lower in the odds yet still managed to come out victorious. Therefore, we can’t be certain of the outcome, and we may see Morocco progress to the final for the very first time after this game.
If you’re looking to place your bets, it is always safe to go with the odds and put your money on France. However, if you want to be a bit more daring and have confidence Morocco will pull through, you may want to support them, and you will see more winnings in the end. Nevertheless, we think that France will win tonight.
Score Prediction: 2-0 France
France to Win @ 1.53
The FIFA World Cup has finally made it to the quarter-finals, and eight fantastic teams will compete to gain one of the coveted four spots in the semi-finals. The first two games are kicking off on Friday, 9th December, and we can’t wait to see what is in store. Which first two teams have what it takes to advance to the next stage?
Starting off the quarter-finals and Friday’s fixtures is Croatia vs Brazil, and people are anticipating to see whether Brazil will be living up to their name as the best football team in the world. Following this will be the Netherlands vs Argentina, and fans are sitting on the edge of their seats to see whether the European country will be able to make it closer to potentially winning their first World Cup.
So, which two teams are most likely to make it through to the semi-finals? We will never know for sure until we watch the game, but we can help you out with your bets by providing you with our odds and online betting predictions for each fixture.
The Croatia vs Brazil fixture is kicking off the quarter-finals, and FIFA certainly isn’t saving the best for last in this case. Brazil is the favourite to win the entire World Cup at the moment, so this is bound to be an exciting game to watch. Unfortunately for Croatia, they have been matched up with such an excellent team, so the odds aren’t in their favour for this match. But you never know, they may be more determined than ever and show us a stronger side we haven’t seen yet.
Croatia is one of the dark horses of the World Cup, and they have managed to show their skills on the football pitch. They started off the group stages with two goalless draws against Morocco and Belgium but then played extremely well against Canada and had a 4-1 victory in the end. Their last game in the round of 16 was an extremely close one, as they drew 1-1 against Japan and only got through due to the penalty shootout.
On the other hand, Brazil has shown much more promise in its previous games. They started with a 2-0 victory against Serbia, followed by a 1-0 win when they went head-to-head against Switzerland. While they fell short a bit when they lost 1-0 against Cameroon, they redeemed themselves a lot with a 4-1 victory against South Korea, moving the team into the quarter-finals.
This isn’t the first time that Croatia and Brazil are coming head-to-head on the football pitch, and they have also come across each other twice in the FIFA World Cup before too. Out of the four games they have played, Brazil has won three, and the fourth ended in a draw. So far, Brazil has won all the previous World Cup fixtures against Croatia, and it appears like they could make this a hat-trick on Friday.
Unfortunately, based on past performances in this tournament and against each other, things aren’t looking too positive for Croatia. Brazil has built itself up as the world champion at the moment, and they are no doubt looking to win this tournament to secure this title as well. However, they did lose against Cameroon in the group stages, so there is a slight chance Croatia may pull through.
When you’re looking to place your bets, you’d be silly not to bet on Brazil since their odds are far higher than Croatia, and they have a much better playing team. If you want to introduce a bit more risk for a higher payout, we recommend betting on a draw and a penalty shootout rather than Croatia winning.
Score Prediction: 2-0 Brazil
Brazil to Win @ 1.34
After the spectacular match against Brazil and Croatia, we’ll know the first team who has secured a place in the semi-finals. But who will they be going up against? That is what we will find out when the Netherlands and Argentina go head-to-head in the second quarter-final fixture of the day. The odds are extremely close for this one, so it could turn out to be anyone’s game. Therefore, there’s no doubt people will be sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to see who will win.
The Netherlands went up against Senegal, Ecuador, and Qatar in the group stages, which allowed them to finish first in the standings. They secured themselves two 2-0 wins and a 1-1 draw against Ecuador before progressing to the round of 16. Luckily for them, the team performed extremely well when playing against the USA, and they were able to secure a spot in the quarter-finals with a 3-1 victory.
In the group stages, Argentina also finished first in their group’s standings with six points after going up against Poland, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia. While they did succumb to one 2-1 loss against Saudi Arabia, they did bounce back after that first fixture. The final two games against Mexico and Poland then ended in a 2-0 victory. Argentina made their way to this match with a 2-1 win against Australia in the round of 16.
The two teams’ performances have been extremely similar during this tournament, which has been similar in the past too. The Netherlands and Argentina have played nine fixtures against each other before, where the Netherlands has won four, Argentina has won three, and two ended in a draw. They have already played against each other five times in the FIFA World Cup, so it isn’t their first time fighting to progress to the next stage.
Argentina is slightly ahead in the odds, but that may just be because they have won a FIFA World Cup in the past, and the Netherlands hasn’t. Based on performance, the Netherlands has a slight advantage, so we may see either one of the teams coming out victorious at this stage.
Betting is a bit more difficult for this game, but if you want to play it safe, then we think there is a strong chance the game will end in a draw which progresses to penalty shootouts. However, you can also go for both teams to score.
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
Both teams to score @ 2.00
Tuesday 6th December is the last day of the round of 16 matches, and they are certainly going out with a bang. By now, we’ll already know six of the teams who have made it through to the World Cup quarter-finals, and now it is time to see the last four teams battle it out for the final spaces. But who has what it takes to qualify for the next round?
Starting off Tuesday’s fixtures will be Morocco vs Spain, which is bound to have people excited since Spain has been champion of the World Cup on more than one occasion. This will then be followed by Portugal vs Switzerland, which is another match that is going to turn heads since Portugal has shown us some fantastic moves on the pitch this year so far. But are the odds going to be in their favour?
So, who do we think is going to take the last two slots in the quarter-finals? Of course, many people expect neighbouring Spain and Portugal to make their way through, but with the amount of shocks we’ve had so far in this tournament, you can never be too sure.
The penultimate round of 16 games will be against Spain and Morocco, which many viewers are looking forward to. Even with Spain’s track record in the World Cup, they managed to finish second in the group standings, whereas Morocco finished first in theirs. Spain haven’t had as much luck, but that could just mean their team will be coming back bigger and better than ever to try and get that coveted quarter-final spot. The odds are currently in Spain’s favour, but this doesn’t necessarily mean they will make it through.
So far, Spain has gone against Costa Rica, Germany, and Japan. Spain started off with a fantastic win when playing against Costa Rica. They managed to score seven goals in the game, while Costa Rica scored none. They were met with more resistance from Germany, ending in a 1-1 draw and unfortunately lost 2-1 to Japan in their final group stage game.
Morocco had a bit more luck than Spain in the FIFA World Cup, which is surprising for the Northern African team. They finished with the most points, a total of seven, in Group F’s standings. While they didn’t manage to score at all against Croatia, it still ended in a draw, gaining them one point. They then did much better against Belgium with a 2-0 win and finished with a 2-1 victory against Canada.
Although Morocco have done better than Spain so far, the odds could be in Spain’s favour due to their excellent record against the Northern African team. The two teams have come face-to-face on the pitch on three occasions, and the Spanish players have managed to finish with two victories. Morocco hasn’t achieved a win against Spain yet, as their third match ended in a draw. Therefore, Morocco may be on a mission to finally beat this European team.
While Spain are the favourites to win, that isn’t to say that Morocco isn’t going to score at all. We definitely think that they will fight as hard as they can to make it through, but Spain may just have slightly more skills needed to get that spot in the quarter-finals.
In terms of betting, we recommend going with Spain for the safest chance of securing some winnings. However, you may want to be a bit riskier and bet on a draw, where the final outcome will be decided by a penalty shootout.
Score Prediction: 1-2 Spain
Spain to Win @ 1.49
Once we know who has come out victorious in the Spain and Morocco fixture, it is time to see who will be going up against the winner in the quarter-finals. The final game of the round of 16 games will be Portugal vs Switzerland, and the odds are similar to the previous game. While Portugal are the favourites to win and make it through to the next round, Switzerland are still pretty close, so it could potentially be anyone’s game.
Portugal has managed to secure themselves two wins out of their first two games against Ghana and Uruguay. They had a close call with a 3-2 victory against Ghana, but this was followed by a huge 2-0 win against Uruguay. However, they may have appeared a bit overconfident as they didn’t end the group stages as well. They finished off their last game with a 2-1 defeat against South Korea.
Switzerland may have finished second in its group standings due to goals, but they did manage to still score the same amount of points as Portugal. While Switzerland was beaten by Brazil with a 1-0 loss, they did manage to come out on top with a 1-0 victory when they went against Cameroon. They also finished on an incredible high with a 3-2 victory against Serbia, making it through to this round.
While Switzerland and Portugal finished with the same points in this tournament, they also have a similar track record in the past. They already met twice this year already in the UEFA Nations League, with Portugal winning one game with a 4-0 result and Switzerland winning the other with a 1-0 victory. They have met a total of six times over the last few decades, but they have both managed to win three times.
So, why are Portugal ahead in the odds? It is probably because of Portugal’s team and the way they have moved on the pitch so far. The odds are close, but we suggest betting on Portugal if you want a safe win. However, you may earn some more money if you get a bit more daring with a draw or victory for Switzerland.
Score Prediction: 2-1 Portugal
Portugal to Win @ 1.82
As of Monday, 5th December, we’ll be halfway through the round of 16 matches, and it is only going to get more exciting. We’ve already seen some of the biggest football teams in the world fight it out for the sacred quarter-final spots, and now it’s time to see which next two teams will be making it through to the next round of the 2022 World Cup.
The first game of the week will be Japan vs Croatia, which everyone is extremely excited to win. Japan has proven itself to be the dark horse of the FIFA World Cup this year, and it is looking even more likely they could make it to the finals. After that, we have another extremely big game with the world’s best football team, Brazil, battling it out against South Korea. But who will be making it through to the quarter-finals?
While many have expectations about who will win each of Monday’s fixtures, you can never be too sure. However, there are odds available that can help make our decisions on what bets to place a little bit clearer. We are here to provide you with all the predictions you need for the best online betting experience!
Monday’s games start with a good one. We will be watching the dark horse of the World Cup, Japan, go up against Croatia. While the world didn’t have high hopes for Japan during this year’s tournament, they have managed to prove us wrong and beat two of the best football teams in the world during the group stages, securing their place in the round of 16. Croatia also managed to show off their skills, so there’s no doubt people will be sitting on the edge of their seats during this game.
So far, Japan has gone against Spain, Germany, and Costa Rica. They secured themselves two wins and a loss, but they still managed to finish in first place in the group’s standings. The team started off with a fantastic 2-1 win against Germany, and although they lost 1-2 against Canada, they bounced back with a 2-1 win against Spain, which knocked Germany out of the competition.
Croatia doesn’t have as good of a track record as Japan, but they still managed to show their skills on the football pitch. They secured two goalless draws against Morocco and Belgium, but they played extremely well against Canada, a team that Japan lost against, and had a 4-1 victory in the end.
But even though Japan has played better than anyone ever expected in the group stages, Croatia is still the favourite to win in this round of 16 games. This could be due to past performances outside of this tournament, though, and Japan certainly has what it takes to come into this game extremely strong.
These two teams have already come head-to-head three times in the past, and two of those were at the World Cup. The first time they met was in 1997 at the Kirin Japan Cup, where Japan managed to win with a 4-3 score. However, in the 1998 World Cup, Croatia bounced back with a 1-0 victory, and they had a goalless draw in 2006. This means the two teams are relatively equal in their past performances, so there is no shock that the odds are pretty similar.
However, Croatia is still more likely to win at the moment, and that could be because they are on a nine-game unbeaten run. However, if Japan makes it through to the quarter-finals, this will be their first time ever, so that they may be fighting now more than ever, especially after their impressive performances.
So, if you want to place your bets on this game, your safe bet is to go for a small win for Croatia. However, the odds haven’t been in Japan’s favour for their past games, yet they have proven us wrong, so you may want to switch things up for a more risky and worthwhile bet.
Score Prediction: 0-1 Croatia
Croatia to Win @ 1.96
South Korea 11.00
While the Japan and Croatia game is bound to be good, many people anticipate seeing how the Brazil vs South Korea game will turn out. Brazil has been ranked as the top football team in the world, so they are the favourites to win the entire FIFA World Cup. Due to that, the odds are very much in their favour. However, we have seen many shocking wins this year, so we can never be sure that the outcome will be what we predict.
Brazil has already played fairly well in their group stages and has managed to secure themselves two wins. They started with a 2-0 victory against Serbia, followed by a 1-0 win when they went head-to-head against Switzerland. However, they fell short a bit when they lost 1-0 against Cameroon. So, although they are the world’s favourites to win, they haven’t quite shown their impressive skills yet.
South Korea may not have received as many points in the group standings as Brazil, but they did manage to score more goals. Although they started off with a goalless draw against Uruguay, they managed to score two goals against Ghana even though they lost. They also managed to finish off well with a 2-1 victory against Portugal.
However, Brazil is still the favourite to win, and this could be due to the excellent track record the country has against South Korea. The two countries have played a total of seven matches against each other, and Brazil has managed to secure six victories, whereas South Korea has only won against them once.
So, if you are ready to place your bets on Monday’s second game, you most likely want to bet on the fact that Brazil will win. There is a slight chance South Korea will come fighting and secure a win, but this isn’t very likely.
Score Prediction: 1-0 Brazil
Brazil to Win @ 1.27
The round of 16 matches has officially kicked off in the FIFA World Cup, and we’re already seeing the Netherlands and Argentina make it through to the quarter-finals. However, we still have another 12 teams ready to battle it out and secure themselves a space in the next round, including on Sunday, 4th December.
We will now see four more teams head to the pitch and see who will be making it to the quarter-final game on Saturday, 11th December. The first game of the day on Sunday will be France versus Poland, which will undoubtedly be interesting to see if the reigning champions can make it through again. This will be followed by another exciting fixture with England and Senegal, which will no doubt have viewers on the edge of their seats.
There are certainly teams that are expected to win these matches, but are the odds in their favour? Have you placed your bets on these games yet, or do you need a little bit of extra intel to help you out? Luckily, we’re here to provide you with all the odds you need and extra predictions to make the best possible choices when you bet online.
Sunday’s games will begin with the big France and Poland fixture. They’ve already shown their skills on the football pitch, but now it’s time to see if they can keep up their momentum and make it through to the next stage. While France is the clear favourite to win due to their reigning victory in the 2018 FIFA World Cup. However, while the odds are in their favour, they aren’t as far apart as some of the previous games, which means we could be in for a surprise.
Poland went against Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Argentina in the group stages. They finished second in the group’s standings, but the results were a little bit mixed. The team secured themselves a 2-0 win against Saudi Arabia and a goalless draw with Mexico, but they also had a 2-0 loss when they went up against Argentina.
Unfortunately for Poland, France had a better track record in the group stages when the team played against Australia, Denmark, and Tunisia. They started off incredibly well with a 4-1 victory, and this luck was continued when they won 2-1 against Denmark. These two games pretty much secured them a spot in the round of 16, which means they may have lost their fight when they lost 0-1 against Tunisia.
While France did lose their last group stage game, they still have a better track record than Poland. The team managed to secure a total of six goals in all three of the matches, whereas Poland only scored two. This and the fact they are the reigning champions puts the odds in France’s favour.
When examining the past games of the two teams, France also has a better track record there. They have come head-to-head a total of 16 times, and France has managed to win half of these games. However, despite France’s reputation and skills, Poland has managed to win three games and finish in a draw for the other five. Therefore, while France has won more games in the past, it isn’t impossible for Poland to beat them.
So, while the French are the favourites to win, especially when it comes to the odds, there still is a slight chance that Poland could make it through to the quarter-finals. They have proved that they have what it takes to beat France; however, with the way France has played in their other games in the tournament, it is looking more likely for them.
Therefore, when you’re about to place your bets, you will have a better chance of bringing home some winnings when you bet that France will win by a landslide. However, if you want to test your luck it and potentially win a larger sum of money, you can back Poland.
Score Prediction: 3-0 France
France to Win @ 1.33
So, who will be going against the winner of the France vs Poland match? We will find that out very soon, as the England vs Senegal fixture will be aired immediately afterwards. This game is a little bit closer than the previous one because neither team is the reigning champion of the last FIFA World Cup. However, England did finish first in Group B’s standings, whereas Senegal only came in second in theirs.
We have already seen England go up against Iran, USA, and Iran, and they remain unbeaten in this year’s tournament. They have scored a grand total of nine goals so far, which is even more than France. The team started off well with a 6-2 victory against Iran and ended up with a 3-0 win after a goalless draw against the USA.
While Senegal didn’t score as many goals as England, they still managed to show the world what they are made of with two wins. The team secured their first 3-1 win against Qatar and then finished off the group stages with a 2-1 victory against Ecuador. However, they did have one 2-0 loss in the first game against the Netherlands.
So, although Senegal has a loss and England doesn’t, their performances are rather similar, which means the odds are quite close as well. However, England is still the favourite to win and make it through to the quarter-finals by increasing their overall goal count into double-digit figures.
What is incredibly interesting about this game as well is that the two teams have never played against each other before. We, therefore, have no history on which to base our predictions for the outcome of this fixture. England could act with the odds and come out victorious, but we may also see Senegal surprise us and make their way through to the next round.
So, what should you bet on? Of course, England would be the safest option, but Senegal will most likely score at least one goal as they have shown their skills on the pitch already. And you never know; if you bet on Senegal, you may even see yourself bringing home some extra cash.
Score Prediction: 3-1 England
England to Win @ 1.52
It’s officially the end of the World Cup 2022 group stages, and after most of the teams have been battling it out to see who will make it to the round of 16, we will now see the last eight teams make their way to the pitch. Who has what it takes and will be the final four who make it to the knockout round?
Four fixtures are scheduled for Friday’s group stage games, and two will be shown at the same time throughout the day. But who will you be watching? South Korea vs Portugal or Ghana vs Uruguay in Group H? Or will you decide between Serbia vs Switzerland and Cameroon vs Brazil from Group G?
After so many fantastic games at the World Cup and so many betting opportunities, it will be sad to see the group stages end. However, the excitement of moving to the round of 16 takes over. But which of these eight teams has what it takes to make it through? Let’s take a look at what you can expect from the games and who is most likely to make it through.
One of the games starting off the final day of the group stages will be South Korea vs Portugal. This one is quite interesting because Portugal is at the top of Group H’s standings, and South Korea is falling behind Ghana, so although Portugal has pretty much been confirmed as going through to the round of 16, this match is a deciding factor for South Korea.
However, South Korea has a lot to prove against Portugal as Portugal has managed to secure themselves two wins out of their other games against Ghana and Uruguay. They had a close call with a 3-2 victory against Ghana, but this was followed by a massive 2-0 win against Uruguay.
Unfortunately for South Korea, they have only managed to gain one point in the group’s standings, and this was due to a goalless draw against Uruguay. This was followed by a 3-2 loss against Ghana.
Therefore, there is no surprise that Portugal is in the lead in terms of odds and the favourite to win this game. They are already going through to the knockout round, even if they lose this match, so there is not so much pressure on their team. However, South Korea has a lot to prove and will need to win this match if they have any chance of making it through. They will also need Ghana to either lose or draw against Uruguay, but this still doesn’t make them go through a definite, and it can come down to the number of goals.
South Korea and Portugal have only met on the pitch once before, and this was during the group stages of the 2002 FIFA World Cup. Luckily for South Korea, they actually came out victorious with a 1-0 win, but this could have been down to the fact they were co-hosting the tournament with Japan.
So, although South Korea has not quite proved themselves in this year’s tournament, they have a good track record when playing against Portugal. This means we could be in for a bit of a surprise, and South Korea may want to make it a two-time win against the European team.
Therefore, due to the past game of South Korea winning and Portugal playing so well in their other two games, there is a possibility that this game could end up in a draw.

If you want to switch channels while the Portugal and South Korea game is on, then you’ll also be able to watch Group H’s Ghana vs Uruguay fixture. Ghana is currently behind Portugal in the group’s standings, so a win will secure their place in the round of 16, but Uruguay has to work a little harder to make it through.
Both Ghana and Uruguay have already played against Portugal and South Korea, and both of them have not managed to beat Portugal as they remain victorious. However, Ghana gained a 3-2 win against South Korea, and Uruguay had a goalless draw against South Korea, which secured them their only point in the group’s standings.
However, although Ghana is higher up in the standings since they have managed to win a game, Uruguay is still coming out on top in the odds. If they do win and Portgual wins the other fixture, then they will have a possible chance of making it through to the knockout round.
The fact that Uruguay is ahead in the odds could be due to their strong team that just hasn’t shown its potential yet, or it could be because they have managed to win the only match that the two teams have played against each other in the past. The last time Ghana and Uruguay met was at the FIFA World Cup in 2010 in the quarter-finals, and Uruguay managed to win in the penalty shootouts.
While Uruguay is the favourite to win, Ghana may give them a run for their money and come out on top. They have already shown us that they are capable of winning a match in the World Cup, and they may be more determined than ever to make it through to the next round.

After Group H has had their time in the spotlight and we know the next two teams who will make it through to the round of 16, we’ll see Group G take to the pitch and battle to get the final two spots in the knockout round. One of the games will be Serbia vs Switzerland, which is bound to be close.
We have already seen both of these teams go up against Brazil and Cameroon, but Switzerland has managed to earn them a higher spot in the standings than Serbia so far. While Switzerland was beaten by Brazil with a 1-0 loss, they did manage to come out on top with a 1-0 victory when they went against Cameroon.
Serbia wasn’t so lucky when they went against Cameroon. Although they appeared to shine in the first half, Cameroon came and scored the goals just before the end of the game, which meant the final result of a 3-3 draw. And similar to Switzerland, they were also defeated by Brazil with a 2-0 outcome.
If Switzerland manages to come out victorious in this game, then they will no doubt be joining Brazil in the knockout round. This is the same for Serbia, but this will only be the case if Brazil defeats Cameroon in their game at the same time, which is very likely.
The two teams don’t have much history, as they have only managed to meet once before, during the 2018 FIFA World Cup group stage. Switzerland managed to win 2-1, which is why it is surprising that the odds are in Serbia’s favour for this game.
However, Serbia has a fantastic team and has shown their skills in their past two matches, even though Switzerland is higher up in the standings. The goals will be close, but we reckon it will be a Serbia victory.

Now, the match of the day we have all been waiting for. We will watch one of the world’s top football teams, Brazil go against Cameroon. Brazil is already at the top of its group’s standings, so we already know they will be making it through to the knockout round, but that doesn’t make this game any less exciting.
Brazil has already managed to secure itself two wins against Serbia and Switzerland. They had a landslide victory with a 2-0 win when playing against Serbia. However, it was a little less close when they defeated Switzerland by 1-0.
While Cameroon has played fairly well in its games, they still haven’t secured a victory. They lost against Switzerland with a 1-0 result, but they did have a pretty impressive draw when they bounced back in the second half of the match against Serbia, resulting in a 3-3 draw.
However, it is not looking good for Cameroon when they play against Brazil, and the chances of them making it through to the next round with their one point is unlikely. They have played against Brazil six times before and have lost out five times. The previous score was a landslide for Brazil, with a comprehensive 4-1 win.
Therefore, there is really no shock that Brazil is expected to come out victorious in this game, but that isn’t to say that Cameroon won’t come out fighting. It is predicted that they will be able to secure themselves at least one goal, so although they may not make it through to the next stage, they may prove themselves against Brazil.

As the FIFA World Cup continues and we get towards the end of the group stages, we have another four exciting games to watch and bet on this Wednesday. Two teams have already gone through to the round of 16, so we’re now getting ready to find out which other two teams will be joining them from Group C and Group D.
Kicking off today’s games will be Tunisia vs France and Australia vs Denmark; the two games will be going on at the same time. Not long after, we’ll be able to sit back and watch the results of both the Poland vs Argentina and Saudi Arabia vs Mexico games.
So, which ones will you be watching? Or will you be putting your bets on all of them? If you want to take the chance to come home with some great winnings, you may want to know a bit more about the expected outcome of each of the games. Continue reading to discover what the odds are saying and who is most likely to make it through to the knockout round.
One of the games starting off Wednesday’s FIFA World Cup group stage games is Group D’s Tunisia versus France match. With France having an excellent track record in the tournament’s history and being the reigning champions, it will be an exciting game, especially since France has already won their last two games and Tunisia hasn’t been as lucky.
Each of the teams has previously played against Australia and Denmark. France managed to win with a whopping 4-1 against Australia in their first game and then came out victorious again with a 2-1 win when they went against Denmark.
Tunisia, on the other hand, hasn’t been so fortunate. They haven’t actually managed to score a single goal this World Cup, meaning they lost against Australia and drew against Denmark when neither team managed to get a goal.
Therefore, it is pretty much confirmed that France will come out on top and make it through to the round of 16, especially since they are at the top of Group D with 6 points. Unless Tunisia makes an extreme comeback and manages to win this game, there is very little chance of them making it through to the next stage. This may affect their performance as they know that there isn’t much they can do to get to the knockout round. But with the outcome of some of the games this year, we can’t say this will never happen.
Tunisia and France have come head to head five times in the past, but each of them has only been friendly games. Tunisia managed a 2-1 win against France in 1971, but since then, they haven’t managed to jump back. This can also be unnerving for the team, but they may be more determined than ever to prove that they can finally beat France.
While Tunisia hasn’t scored at all this tournament, and France has one of the highest goal counts in the World Cup so far, that isn’t to say that Tunisia won’t score at all. They have managed to score four out of five times they have played against France before, so hopefully, they can redeem themselves a little on Wednesday.
It may be optimistic to think Tunisia can win this game, so if you want to be safe with your bets, you will most likely come home with winnings if you back France.
Playing at the same time as the other Group D game on Wednesday are Australia and Denmark. It may not be as exciting to watch the reigning champions make it through to the round of 16, but it is going to be a deciding game in who the other team that makes it to the knockout round will be. While Australia is ahead with three points on the table, if Denmark manages to come out victorious, they’ll be sending them back down under.
Both teams have played France and Tunisia, and Australia has managed to secure one win against Tunisia with a 1-0 outcome. However, they did lose significantly against France, with a final result of 2-1.
On the other hand, Denmark hasn’t managed to secure a win, but they did draw against Tunisia in a scoreless game, gaining them one point. They also lost their game against France, but they weren’t annihilated as much as the Australia game because they only lost by 2-1.
However, although Denmark hasn’t managed to play as well as Australia, they are still coming out on top in terms of odds. People expect them to win this game by scoring at least two goals. This may be due to the two teams’ history, as they have met four times in the past. Denmark managed to win twice against Australia, whereas Australia only managed one victory and a draw.
Denmark and Australia also played against each other before in the last World Cup in 2018, during the group stages as well. However, we can’t base much of this game’s outcome on the last one because it only resulted in a 1-1 draw.
In terms of Denmark’s players, they do have an impressive squad, including Christan Eriksen and Martin Braithwaite.
However, they haven’t displayed their skills yet, so hopefully, they’ll step up to the plate in this game and show us what they have.
While Australia isn’t predicted to win in terms of the odds, there is still a chance they may shock us. But if you want to stay on the safe side in terms of your bets, then Denmark is definitely who you should settle with.
After Group D has shown us what they are made of and we know the next two teams who will make it through to the round of 16, it is Group C’s time to shine. One of the two games playing at the same time will be Poland versus Argentina, which is bound to be interesting since they are the two top teams in the standing to go through to the knockout stage.
Each team has previously gone up against the other Group C teams; Saudi Arabia and Mexico. While Poland managed to secure a 2-1 win against Saudi Arabia, they also had a goalless draw against Mexico as well. Argentina also managed to gain a win, but theirs was against Mexico at 2-0. However, they lost against Saudi Arabia at 2-1, which is why they have fallen short by one point.
Although Poland is at the top of their group’s table at the moment, Argentina is still the team expected to come out victorious in this match. The odds are in their favour, which is undoubtedly due to their previous performances in the World Cup and the fantastic team they have managed to put together.
In the past, Argentina and Poland have played against each other a total of 11 times. Another reason why Argentina is the favourite to win this game is due to the fact they have managed to win six times, compared to Poland’s three victories. Therefore the chances of them making it a seventh win seem to be relatively high.
Since the two teams are so close in points, they will undoubtedly be fierce against each other to see who will make it through to the round of 16. If there is a victory in the other Group C match, there is a chance one of them won’t make it through. Therefore, we can expect to see Argentina’s team fight back more than ever.
Like with any fixture, anything can happen. However, if you are looking to place your bets and have the greatest chance of gaining some winnings, then you will want to bet on Argentina coming out victorious.
Last but not least, of Wednesday’s fixtures is Saudi Arabia playing against Mexico. While these two teams are at the bottom half of Group C’s standings, Saudi Arabia does have the same number of points as Argentina, so a victory for them during this game could mean that they make it through to the round of 16. There isn’t much of a chance that Mexico will, even if they win. This will only happen if they win this game and Argentina lose their fixture at the same time against Poland.
Saudi Arabia and Mexico have already battled in the group stage against Poland and Argentina, so we have been able to see how they’re performing in the tournament so far. Saudi Arabia has managed to gain three points after beating Argentina in a 2-1 victory, but they also managed a 2-1 loss against Poland. Mexico hasn’t been as lucky and hasn’t scored any goals so far. They lost 2-0 against Argentina and had a goalless draw against Poland.
However, which is quite surprising, the odds are in Mexico’s favour for this game. This is because they have managed to come out victorious many times when they have played against Saudi Arabia in the past. The two teams have had five meetings, and Mexico came out on top with four wins and a draw. So far, Saudi Arabia has never managed to secure a victory against Mexico.
While this has affected the odds, Saudi Arabia has proved themselves in their last two games in the World Cup this year. Due to this, we may be surprised, and they could come fighting to get their first win against the South American team. But if you want to go with the odds with your bets, then you will want to place them on Mexico to win.
Tuesday is an exciting day for the FIFA World Cup, as we watch eight teams in Groups A and B go head-to-head in their final group stage matches. It is the first time we’ll see which teams will be making it to the Round of 16, so many people are going to be sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to see what happens. Read for some World Cup betting?
The only difference that these group stage games have compared to others is that both Group A games will be played at the same time, followed by both Group B games at the same time too.
Therefore, if you want to watch the games, you’re going to have to choose which ones take priority. Will you be starting with Ecuador facing Senegal under the Qatar sun? Or will you wait to see if Qatar has their first win in this tournament when playing against the Netherlands? You may also have to toss a coin to see if the USA will beat their drawing streak or if England will come out victorious against its UK neighbour, Wales.
One of the first games to kick off Tuesday’s FIFA World Cup games is Group A’s Ecuador vs Senegal match. This one is a fairly close one for both teams as they have both played somewhat similarly in their past matches against Netherlands and Qatar.
Both teams have managed to come out on top against Qatar, with Ecuador winning 2-0 and Senegal winning 3-1. While neither managed to beat the Netherlands, Senegal didn’t manage to score against them with a final score of 0-2, whereas Ecuador showed their strengths when they drew 1-1.
Therefore, it seems that although they both displayed similar performances, Ecuador has managed to prove that they have what it takes to go slightly above and beyond and potentially come out on top when playing against Senegal. Ecuador has managed to grab four points, and since Senegal has three, Ecuador only needs to draw in this game to be in with the chance of moving to the round of 16.
If Senegal wants a chance of qualifying for the next round, they need to win the match. However, this isn’t looking as likely as they haven’t played with as much strength as Ecuador in their past two matches. They need to be really determined to get ahead of Group A in this match, and there have been enough other surprises in this World Cup that it could happen.
Ecuador scored a total of three goals throughout its last two matches, and all three were made by team captain Enner Valencia. However, in the last game against the Netherlands, he was unfortunately taken away on a stretcher. We don’t know if this will affect how he plays in Tuesday’s game, but if he has managed to rest and recuperate, then there’s no saying what he can do.
Senegal has managed to spread out their scores a little more, all of which were made during the Qatar game. Boulaye Dia made the first score of the tournament for Senegal in the 41st minute of the game, followed by two more by Famara Diedhiou and Bambda Dieng in the second half.
While your bets are much safer to be placed on Ecuador at this point, the odds are all so close to each other still that there is a chance that Senegal may be able to turn things around.
The Netherlands vs Qatar game will be going on simultaneously in the other Group A match, where Ecuador plays against Senegal. However, this one may not be as thrilling to watch because Qatar has already been eliminated from making it through to the round of 16. This match is purely to see how well the Netherlands do and whether they will be able to secure their own place.
Qatar has lost both of their matches against Ecuador and Senegal, and the Netherlands has had a good run with a win against Senegal and a draw against Ecuador. Due to this, the chances of the Netherlands coming out victorious in this game and securing the three points they need to progress to the next round are incredibly high.
The Netherlands is still a favourite in Group A and has been ranked highly by many as being the team to come out with the most points and make it through to the next round. They have shown extremely strong defence when playing against both Senegal and Ecuador, but they may need to work on their offence when playing against Qatar to get the win they need.
What is interesting about this game is that Qatar has never played an official game against the Netherlands, so they could always come out and surprise us in this match. Since Qatar has already lost two of its matches so far, if they lose against the Netherlands in this game, they will be the first host nation to lose all three of its matches in World Cup history.
Since the Netherlands were outplayed by Ecuador on Friday, they have much to prove in this match and show viewers that they can make it back on top. Luckily, they are playing against a team that has not managed to show much skill yet, but at the same time, they could use their past failures to fuel themselves and come out stronger before they have to exit the tournament.
Either way, the odds for this game are much more in favour of the Netherlands, and if you were to place your bets on one of the teams, then you would be much safer avoiding Qatar.
After Group A has consolidated its place in the round of 16, it is time to move on to the Group B matches. Iran and USA will be battling it out for a place in the knockout round, and things are looking positive for Iran, who managed to secure themselves a 2-0 victory over Wales last Friday. However, they were also defeated by a humbling 6-2 when playing against England first, so the outlook of this game is pretty mixed.
While Iran did manage to bounce back against Wales, the USA is still coming in strong regarding the odds and who will win this game. Although the USA’s last match ended in a goalless draw against England on Friday, since England managed to beat out Iran so significantly, it proves that they may do the same.
The USA has had a dry spell during this tournament, as they have only managed to achieve draws in the first two games. While they didn’t score anything against England, they did manage to achieve one goal in their first match against Wales. Therefore, the nation may have something to prove today, and if they beat Iran, they have a strong chance of coming out on top and making it through to the next stage.
Iran and USA have only played each other twice in the past, with their last game ending in a 1-1 draw during a friendly. However, Iran did manage to come out victorious in their last meeting in the FIFA World Cup in 1998, with a 2-1 win. While this doesn’t look too positive for the USA, the way their men have played in the past two matches has shown they do, in fact, have the skills to make it through.
The USA may have found some confidence after their game against England, and they could be coming onto the pitch believing they can make it through. Therefore, the odds are in USA’s favour, and your best bet for this game is to place your bets on them.
While the USA vs Iran game is going on, you can also switch channels and start watching Wales vs England game, too, as they are both on at the same time to see which teams out of Group B will make it past the group stages. After England’s disappointing goalless draw against the USA on Friday, we are looking to see if they will be able to make a comeback and defeat Wales as triumphantly as they did Iran with the 6-2 win.
The outcome for Wales isn’t looking very positive, and the chances they get through to the round of 16 are bleak. With only one point due to their 1-1 draw, they would need to win against England by more than six goals and hope that USA and Iran draw for a chance of making it to the next stage.
In that case, there is no surprise that the odds are in England’s favour for this game, especially since they are leading the board for Group B with four points. They may also be looking to come back strong and move into the next stage with a bang after the 0-0 stalemate they had when playing against the USA.
In the past, England and Wales have played a massive 103 matches against each other. However, England has proven to be the more victorious team out of the two since they have won against wales 68 times. This makes things look positive for England in the outcome of this game.
The chances of Wales winning are very low, but with the outcome of some of the games in the FIFA World Cup this year, you can never be so sure. However, if you’re looking for a safe place to put your bets, then your best chance is to go for England winning this game.
