“We always feel we have got great players in this country and we do, but when you look at the Brazil squad you think, ‘Oh my God – where have they come from?’ It was the same when I was playing in tournaments. They had incredibly special players. I’m quite confident they will win it.”
“It’s dangerous to predict where the pathways of teams are going to go, but it looks like England are going to do what they think they will in the group, and France do the same, they would meet in the quarters and I just don’t think they would beat France.
“But this is the one manager and one group of players who I think can put a performance together and hang in there – and they can also win on penalties. I do think there’s a chance, but I think France will be stronger in the quarters.”
“It was either Brazil or Argentina. They are the two favourites, but I would love to see Messi win the World Cup. I feel that would cement his position as the greatest player of all time.”
“I just think in terms of the two special players they have had in the last couple of tournaments in Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, they are getting a bit older and it might be the last time we see them in a Welsh shirt.
“I think Bale will go down as one of the greatest British players of all time with the Champions League titles and being the player of the year a few times in England, as well as what he’s done for Wales taking them into tournaments.
“I just feel with the energy and the intensity of this USA team may be too much for them.”
“Denmark are in France’s group, and they played each other not so long ago and beat them. If Denmark finish top of that group, France could then play Argentina in the first knockout stage.”

“It will be a great way for Lionel Messi, the best player in the world, to go out. It could be a defining moment for him – he has probably been the greatest player we have ever seen, but the thing that is always chucked at him when comparisons are made between him and Diego Maradona is that he has never won the World Cup. If he was to win this one, that would pretty much be the end of that debate – and what a story it would be.” You can bet on Argentina to win the World Cup with the Betfred World Cup sign-up offer of £60 in bonuses.
“I don’t see us doing what we have done in the previous two tournaments. Defensively we could struggle in the latter stages, against the big hitters.”

“It’s Brazil for me. I understand why there is a buzz about Argentina, but this is Neymar’s time to shine. He scored eight goals in qualifying and has taken his game to the next level this season. There is the weight of the nation on his shoulders and he has to deal with what Brazil expect from him, but he will be the star of the show.”
“We might get to the quarter-finals or semi-finals but I don’t think we’ll win it. If you are going into a tournament with so many injuries and a lot of players out of form, plus some uncertainty over which system will work best, there are a lot of questions about the team. I am sure Southgate will sort a lot of it out, but there are better nations than us.”

Messi. It will probably be his last World Cup.
Xavi Simons, he’s having an exceptional season for PSV.
Messi. Argentina have been given a good draw and I think he could score quite a lot of goals in that group stage.
Brazil. All the World Cups, the flare teams, the players…. It’s always Brazil. I can’t wait to see what Brazil have got to offer.
I think they’ll get out the group in second place. I would say the last 16.
Brazil, I think they’ve got so much attacking talent.

Phil Foden is a special player that could take us to another level. He’s got all the capabilities – he can score goals, he can create. He’s got all those assets, so whichever shape you play, he’s a must.
The lad Pedri at Barcelona is a special player. A young kid, 19, and what Xavi’s been saying about him… he could be one.
A team like Denmark, they had a good Euros and could be a dark horse.
They’re well organised, they’re strong mentally and physically and they’ve got ability.
I think we’ll fall just short with the defensive frailties.
Brazil have got a solidness about them. They’ve got either goalkeeper – it’s vital that the goalkeepers have a good tournament.
They’ve got this solid base to add to what they’ve got at the top of the pitch, which they always have.
I probably think they’re favourites and rightly so. I think the environment of Qatar is going to suit them – it’s not like playing in Europe or South America, it’s in between. The environment there will be conducive to them winning it.

There will also be insight from BT Sport’s Robbie Savage and Michael Owen when they offer their thoughts on the upcoming fixtures.
Every weekend BBC’s Mark Lawrenson (or Lawro as he is most popularly called), predicts the score of all the Premier League fixtures. He usually goes up against a celebrity opponent to see who can get the most results correct. In Lawro’s predictions for this week, you will see which team he thinks will win the match and also Lawro’s score predictions for this week. This is great if you’re looking to bet on the correct score in matches, or for a Premier League accumulator tip.
As well as Lawro, Charlie Nicholas is also a regular pundit who predicts the results of matches in the Premier League, Champions League and Europa League. He has taken over from Paul Merson as the main pundit who gives there weekend predictions and you can see his latest set of matches below.
He predicts the score in every EPL for the upcoming weekend and if you check out the Sky Sports page, they also have the reasons behind all of this pundits footy predictions.
When there are midweek matches, you will also get Charlie Nicholas’ midweek Premier League predictions on this very page, we will just keep updating every time the Sky Sports pundit predicts the score of the fixtures coming up.
Sky Sports’ Paul Merson also gives weekly Premier League predictions where he also looks at matches and gives a correct score tip. The Soccer Saturday pundit regularly causes laughs with his inability to pronounce players’ names, but Paul Merson’s football predictions are normally quite accurate and he’s another pundit who is worth following.
The beauty with these pundits predictions is that you also get a little match preview from Merson where he outlines his reasons for the selection he makes. We’ll put the best snippets of Paul Merson’s predictions for this weekend below, and show you the odds for his score selections.
The Football League guru is the main pundit Sky Sports look to for the Championship, League One and League Two. In David Prutton’s latest predictions, you will either get a preview of a few matches taking place this week or you will get a focus on one match where he makes his Championship predictions. There is a lot of matches in the EFL which means there are also David Prutton midweek predictions on a regular basis and that is perfect when you’re having a midweek accumulator bet. His expert opinion could be a great help with some of the matches down in the lower leagues of English football.
Although the former Liverpool, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Stoke striker isn’t everybody’s favourite pundit, you do get Michael Owen predictions each week through his Bet Victor blog. He also produces predictions in the Metro newspaper on occasions and these are great indicators from an experienced football pundit. There is no obligation to bet on any of the Michael Owen Premier League predictions but it is always interesting to see what the experts think will happen – even if it is just to laugh when they get it wrong!
When you get your hands on the latest pundits’ predictions for today’s football matches, you could choose to place a bet on some, or all of them. You could pick one of the pundits and just place an accumulator bet on their selections, or combine the thoughts of a few of them and pick and choose which selections you want to bet on.

All of the pundits can be very hit and miss because the Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two are all very difficult leagues to predict, however, David Prutton seems to do a very good job with his EFL predictions for today’s matches. When you look at his Championship predictions from last season, he was quite accurate in that the table wouldn’t have looked much different if all his selections had been correct. The big difference would have been that Leeds United should have won the title.
Lawro and Michael Owen both get a lot of stick for their predictions and it is easy to see why, but every few weeks you will see one of them pull some fantastic results out of nowhere. Paul Merson is also known to do well in general, but with Merson’s predictions, you always need to watch out for a howler. Like when all three of his FA Cup winner predictions were eliminated in the third round.
Not all of these pundits offer predictions on a weekly basis, but they are some of the bigger names from the three main TV channels showing English football
