With the 2018 Russia World Cup now fully underway, each team will look to move one step closer to booking their spot in the round of 16. With an action-packed month of football, we have found a number of interesting bets that can help boost your Thursday World Cup acca.
Thursday 28th June
15:00 BST Senegal vs Colombia
It really is all still to play for in what is an extremely important group for Gareth Southgate’s England side, with just one match in Group H remaining, both Senegal and Colombia, along with Japan all have a chance to book a spot in the last 16. While Senegal were unable to hold onto their 2-1 lead and book their spot in the next round, they fell short and a late Japan goal only saw them leave Ekaterinburg with a point. As for Colombia, despite also falling short against Japan in their opening Group H matchup, The Yellows played 85 minuets with 10 men and have bounced back in some serious style. Led on by the likes of James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao, an eye-catching performance saw them thrash Poland 3-0 and arguably leave them as favorites to steal top spot. Keep an eye out for their iconic captain, along with scoring against Poland last time out, Radamel Falcao scored his 30th goal for Colombia and first at a World Cup. He is Colombia’s all-time highest goalscorer.
Tip: Radamel Falcao to score anytime @ 6/5
15:00 Japan vs Poland
Well, for Poland, they have the air of a nation in crisis. Becoming the first European country at this summers finals to be eliminated from the tournament, The Whites’ aging squad have been billed by many as their worst side in recent memory. After losing both their games to Senegal and Colombia, Poland have already been handed bottom spot in Group H and their is calls for serious changes to their side. With Bayern Munich Robert Lewandowski demanding they send their fans home with the smallest slither of hope, while we expect Poland to find the net, Japan will really fancy their chances on Thursday afternoon. Arguably the tournaments surprise package, Japan have scored two late goals against both Colombia and Senegal that leaves them currently occupying top spot and a win against an out of shape Poland side will send them through to the last 16. With Poland conceding two or more goals in four of their last five, a Japan attacking lineup that has scored eight in their last three will certainly have their tales up.
Tip: Japan and both teams to score @ 4/1
19:00 England vs Belgium
It’s crunch time for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions side in Group G. With a matching points tally, defensive record and attacking record, both Belgium and England could not be closer and a winner on Thursday evening will go through as winners. With both sides showing their eye-catching form in the final third, it has the air of a game that will see plenty of chances. With Belgium shipping two goals against Tunisia last time out, and England failing to record a clean sheet against either Panama or Tunisia, both Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane will fancy their chances of carrying on their stellar records. After scoring a hat-trick against Panama in England’s 6-1 win, the Tottenham man now has five in two and sits atop of the pile in the race for the Golden Boot. As for Lukaku, the 25-year-old scored his second brace of the tournament last time out and only sit a single goal behind Kane in the charts. A game that promises plenty of action, backing both teams to score and over 2.5 goals seems like a smart bet at 11/8.
Tip: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals @ 11/8
