The 2018 World Cup continues on Tuesday with two knock-out matches taking place throughout the day. The final two sides will get the opportunity to boo-k their place in the quarter-finals of the competition. We’ve picked out today’s best World Cup betting tips.
Sweden vs Switzerland – 3pm – (Round of 16) – Saint-Petersburg Stadium
Colombia vs England – 7pm – (Round of 16) – Otkrytiye Stadium
Sweden were difficult to beat during the group stage with only now-eliminated Germany taking points off them. There is a post-Zlatan togetherness about the side and every player is extremely functional and fulfils their role in the squad. Janne Andersson’s side ended the group stage with a 3-0 success over Mexico and that gave them plenty of momentum coming into this tie. They have relied upon goals from set-pieces and penalties and Switzerland will have to remain vigilant at the back. The Swiss ended on a disappointing note, drawing 2-2 with Costa Rica and conceding an injury time penalty. They haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their three matches in Group E and their defence will need to sharpen up. They do individual creativity with Xherdan Shaqiri capable of unlocking the opposition defence and he will be looking to enhance his reputation as he seeks a transfer away from Stoke City. Switzerland held Brazil to a draw and they are incredibly difficult to write-off and the Sweden won’t go down without a fight. We could require extra-time here and Sweden could sneak through.

This round of 16 game is quite difficult to call and England look a little bit short at 11/10. Colombia have conceded just two goals so far and both of those were scored with Jose Pekerman’s side down to ten men. England have been extremely handy from set-pieces situations whilst three of five Colombia’s goals have also arrived this way. One decisive moment could change this round of 16 game and England striker Harry Kane is likely to be heavily involved. The Spurs striker is leading the way in the goalscorer charts and he will be keen to add to his five goals. Davinson Sanchez has been incredibly solid so far but his teammate will know how to get the better of him. Romelu Lukaku will already have played by the time that Kane takes to the pitch and it is set to be a fascinating battle between the pair. England should be back to full strength and they should lay on plenty of chances for the potent striker. He is 6/5 to score anytime with Paddy Power and you can use their £20 free bet to back him.
