Four World Cup Games are on this Wednesday, and we are here to present them all. With the previews, we have the predictions and also, the odds for each event.
Morocco VS Croatia
The team from the north of Africa has massive potential. Morocco is maybe the best African team in this tournament. Players like Ziyech and Hakimi lead the way, and also have several other solid teammates behind them. Morocco is without a loss in the past seven games, winning five. Also, in the past four games, they haven’t allowed a single goal.
Croatia is in even better shape, with five consecutive victories, four of them in the UEFA Nations League, where they won the top place in their assembly, besides France, Austria, and Denmark. Croats are the runners-up from the previous championship and one pretty experienced team.
That’s why we believe they have enough quality to stop the rivals, and take all three points here. The odds are high, and we can’t say that it is a sure pick, but on the other side, this bet has solid value.
Germany VS Japan
The Mannschaft is one of the dark horses for winning the title in Qatar, despite their unstable performances in the past few months. This team reached the quarterfinals of the recent EURO yet failed to pass the group in Russia four years ago. Germany has four wins, five draws, and a defeat in the last ten games. In only one game, they kept a clean sheet.
Japan comes to the World Cup following solid qualifiers in the Asian zone. This team has a solid defense, recording five clean sheets in the last six games. And the rivals weren’t bad at all – the USA, Ecuador, South Korea, etc.
But even so, we don’t think they have the quality to stop Sane, Musiala, and the boys, who are very potent on the offensive side of the field. Germany should win this game without problems.
Spain VS Costa Rica
There isn’t much to say about this game that you don’t already know. Spain is one of the best teams in the tournament, coming as the semifinalist in the previous EURO. They have eight wins with a loss and a draw in the last ten games.
Meanwhile, Costa Rica earned the World Cup invitation with a win in the playoffs over New Zealand, 1-0. They don’t have the team like from four or eight years ago and are much more modest with quality in all the lines. The Ticos are defensive-minded, trying to protect their own goals first before striking on a break.
Spain won’t allow that to happen, and they will start dictating the tempo immediately, replicating Barca’s tika-taka. That’s why we don’t have the slightest doubt about their victory.
Belgium VS Canada
The Devils have their pretty much last shot at the World Cup title, and they can’t make any more stupid mistakes like in the past. Belgium is an offensive-minded unit with many high-quality forwards who love to attack and score.
Canada is a young and inexperienced team in terms of playing at the big stage, but they had a perfect qualifier, ending ahead of all the CONCACAF rivals. They love to play open and try to score a couple of goals, but often know to overexpose their defense.
Belgium should beat the Canadians, otherwise, it would be a massive sensation.
