Brazil vs Mexico Brazil First Half 1X2 @ 2.10 July 2, 22:00 GMT+8
After their 0-3 drubbing at the hands of Sweden, Mexico got lucky that they still qualified—thanks in large part to South Korea’s surprising win over Germany in the final game of the group stage.
However, it seems that El Tri have run out of luck as they face the Brazilians that have started to pull themselves together after receiving a wakeup call from Switzerland in the opener. The Selecao have now won two straight 2-0 games and have been solid defensively.
Sure enough, Mexico have a well-rounded offence with Hirving Lozano and Chicharito at the core, but defence remains a pressing concern especially against a Brazil frontline that boasts Neymar, Philippe Coutinho, Gabriel Jesus and Paulinho.
Belgium vs Japan Belgium Asian Handicap -1.50 @ 2.26 July 3, 02:00 GMT+8
Japan are one of the biggest surprises of the World Cup 2018. Although they also got lucky to qualify for the knockouts, there’s no doubt the Samurai Blue have been superb in their win against Colombia and 2-2 draw with Senegal in the group phase.
Nevertheless, no matter how good they have been and how tempting it is to bet on them, talent, quality and depth are still important factors. That’s not to say Japan don’t have those traits, it’s just that the Belgian Red Devils are far more superior in all aspects.
As usual, offence will be key for Japan, but do they have enough to break the Belgian wall that even the Three Lions couldn’t get through? I doubt.
Not to mention that Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Jan Vertonghen are all well-rested after sitting out the game against England.
Colombia vs England Over 2.25 @ 2.29 July 4, 22:00 GMT+8
Colombia’s hopes rest on James Rodriguez’ shoulders. The 26-year-old playmaker suffered a calf injury in their match with Senegal, and though not serious, he remains a doubt for this do-or-die fixture against the Three Lions.
Rodriguez is the heart and soul of the Colombia attack, and everybody has seen what life is like for Colombia without their main man. The Cafeteros lost to Japan in their opening match when Rodriguez appeared as a second-half substitute due to injury.
Nevertheless, whether Rodriguez is fit to play or not, Colombia are still bound to have a hard time against England. After all, Gareth Southgate’s men have exceeded expectations so far and seem to be in good form behind Harry Kane.
Both teams look susceptible defensively, so a high-scoring affair might just be on the books.
