The teams in the Quarter Finals
Uruguay is one of the teams that beat a favorite in the last 16 round. They managed to beat Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal within the 90 minutes. In the group stage Uruguay had a perfect run with 3 wins and 0 goals conceded. As group winners they played against Portugal, who finished second in group B. It wasn’t an easy game but with a world class Suarez and Cavani Uruguay managed to beat Portugal 2-1. In the first half Uruguay scored 1-0 (Cavani) but in the 2nd half Pepe managed to score a header for Portugal. In the 62′ minute Cavani scored again. A great kick from Suarez came straight on the head of Cavani and he headed Uruguay to the Quarter finals
France beat Argentina in their previous game. And a crazy game it was. The final score was 4-3 for France. A lot of things happened during this game. France started great with an early goal scored by Griezmann. But 4 minutes before half time Argentina made it 1-1. And 7 minutes after the break they also scored the 1-2. It looked like Argentina was going to beat France. But in the 57th minute Pavard shot a lose ball straight in the far corner. One of the best goals I have seen this tournament. And 8 minutes later Mbappe showed his class and he scored 2 goals in 4 minutes. No one could stop this guy from scoring, he was on fire. In the last minute Aguero scored Argentina’s 3rd goal and made the final score 4-3. france now plays Uruguay
This is the biggest surprise so far this tournament. Nobody thought Russia would survive the group stage. After they got second in their group they played against Spain. And they defended perfectly. Spain only got a few chances but they where playing very weak. Russia was well organised and Spain played without any idea. russia managed to score a penalty after Pique made a hand ball. Before Dzjuba made it 1-1 from the penalty spot, Russia already scored an own goal in the 12th minute. An unlucky goal from Ignasjevitsj. But all went well for Russia after the 1-1. Spain didn’t had a clue how they could beat the Russian defence and after 120 minutes penalies decided this game. 2 Spannish players missed and Russia qualified for the Quarter finals. They now play against Croatia.
One of the best teams in the group stage had a very difficult game before the quarter finals. Croatia faced Denmark in the second round and after a great start of the match the game ended 1-1 after 90 minutes. Denmark and Croatia both played very weak during this game. A bit of a surprise because Croatia played a few amazing games in their group stage. They won 3-0 against Argentina and 2-0 against Nigeria. Against Denmark a few players didn’t reach their level. Modric, Perisic and Rakitic did not reach the high level the normally have. But hey, every team has 1 bad game during a tournament. Maybe this was the bad game for Croatia. And maybe they can now reach the finals. In the quarter finals they face Russia.
top favorites Brazil reached the quarter finals after beating Mexico 2-0. Now they face one of the other top favorites Belgium. Brazil is in form and won their last 3 games on this world cup. They started a bit slow with a draw against Switzerland. But after that game they won every game and scored at least 2 goals in every game. the game against Mexico was a rather easy game and the result was a fair result. Now they have to play a lot better when they want to beat Belgium. Neymar is in form but he also gets a lot of questions from the crowd. He is diving and complaining all the time. The crowd is getting sick of this kid. Will this get against him and his team?
My personal favorites to win this world cup are Belgium. They have by far the best squad. In every position they have a great player. Their midfield with Hazard, de Bruyne and Witzel is world class. With an in form striker (lukaku) they can score a goal in every game. In the last round Belgium had a heavy game. They almost lost against Japan. In the second half they where down 2-0. But they still managed to win this game in the 90 minutes. A few great achievements gave them 3 nice goals. And in the last minute they sealed the game with the perfect counter attack after a corner kick of Japan. Now they face other favorites Brazil. This is going to be an epic game.
The biggest surprise in the quarter finals are Sweden. They won their group with Germany and Mexico and managed to beat the though Swiss in the last round. It wasn’t a great game but they looked so solid during the game. The Swedish team is not full of great players but they have such a great team mentality. Every game they play in a god organisation. Against Switzerland they created a few good chances but only a deflected shot went in the back of the net. They finished the game 1-0 and are now up to play against the English.
Everybody in England is now singing “It is coming home”. Referring to the world cup coming back to the home of football. The English looked solid against Colombia till the 94th minute. Colombia managed to score a 1-1 in the final minute of stoppage time. Before this goal Harry Kane had made it 1-0 from the penalty spot. Before this game England had 3 penalty shoot outs in a World Cup and they lost all 3. This time they coped with the presure and Pickford became the Hero after stopping the final penalty of Colombia. England now faces a weaker side as Colombia. But can they beat the well organised Swedish team? Or will it be a new penalty shoot ou in Samara?

Our predictions and best betting tips for each match
Match 1: Uruguay – France – 6th july – Nizhny Novgorod – 16:00 CET (Result 0-2 France)
Uruguay is playing very good at the moment. They have a solid defence and a great attacking force with Suarez and Cavani. It is not sure if Cavani can play against france because he left the field against Portugal with an injury. It is key that Cavani plays because he is a player who can make a difference during an important game like this.
France started the tournament pretty weak. They didn’t play well but they managed to finish top of their group. And they reached the last 16 pretty easy. In the last game they played much better and they beat Argentina with 4-3. Mbappe and Griezmann are getting better and better and that is good news for France. The defenders of France are not the best and that is where Uruguay can make the difference.
Can Mbappe and Griezmann beat the solid defence of Uruguay? And how many goals can Cavani and Suarez score against the weaker france defenders? I predict a 2-1 win for Uruguay after 90 minutes. And Suarez to score the first goal.

Match 2: Brazil – Belgium – 6th July – Kazan – 20:00 CET (Result 1-2 Belgium)
this is probably going to be the best quarter final of the tournament. Maybe even the best game in the tournament. At the start of the World Cup both Belgium and Brazil where one of the top favorites to win this world cup. And now they play eachother in an epic quarter final match in Kazan. The whole world will be watching this game on friday night.
Belgium has had some amazing results. They won all of their games and they beat Japan in the last minute of the game after being down with 2 goals. Belgium became first in their group with England. Even when a second spot would have been better. Now they face a great Brazil. brazil is getting better every game. They have Neymar who get more and more hated by the crowd. With his dives and crying he tries to foul the referees. Will this get against him and Brazil?
I think it will be a tight game but in the end Belgium is going to surprise and win the game. Lukaku will be important with one the goals. I predict a 2-1 win for Belgium

Match 3: Sweden – England – 7th July – Samara – 16:00 CET
A great achievement from Sweden to reach this stage of the world cup. And they only lost one of their previous 4 games. Only Germany could beat the Swedish in the last second of the group match. Sweden deserved to win that game. The England squad is on paper much better then the Swedish one. But Sweden manages to play in a decent organisation. Every match they play the same and they play from their organisation. England has a great squad with Harry Kane in form. He scores every game and wants to be topscorer this world cup.
I think Sweden will lose by 1 goal. And England will score from a penalty (Harry Kane). I predict a 1-0 or 2-0 win for England.
Bet on Sweden – England
In Samara England wants to beat Sweden and bring the world cup “home”. At our preferred betting partners you are able to bet on this game and get the highest possible odds.
Interesting bets and the Odds for Sweden – England
Our score prediction – 0-2 England (Harry Kane scores a header)Bet on this Match!
Match 4: Russia – Croatia – 7th july – Sochi – 20:00 CET
A great game for Russia because they didn’t thought they could reach the quarter finals. And Croatia is top favorite in this game. So Russia can do exactly the same as they did in their game against Spain. They can organise their defence and try to keep a clean sheet. With their quick wingers and big striker they hope to score a goal from set piece or a counter attack.
Croatia is in my eyes the big favorite to win this game. They have such a strong and talented midfield. In their game against Denmark their midfield played very weak but stil they managed to win the game. Every team plays one bad game during a tournament. Croatia could reach the finals when they win against Russia. But can they cope with the huge Russian crowd in Sochi?
I predict a though game but Croatia is the better team and they will beat the Russian team with 2-0. 1 Goal from a penalty and one from one of the midfielders.
