Today’s World Cup Fixtures

Don’t make any plans on Saturday 16th June as there are four matches to enjoy and they all offer great betting opportunities. France and Argentina will be expected to get off to a positive start whilst Denmark vs Peru could essentially decide which side is likely to follow Les Bleus into the knock-out round.

France vs Australia – (Group C) – Kazan – 11am

Argentina vs Iceland – (Group D) – Moscow – 2pm

Peru vs Denmark – (Group C) – Saransk – 5pm

Croatia vs Nigeria – (Group D) – Kaliningrad – 8pm


France vs Australia Prediction

France will be expected to begin with a victory and it’s hard to see them slipping up against the Socceroos. They have plenty in attack and should be a huge threat going forward. Australia have tightened up under Bert Van Marwijk and are unlikely to be as open and expensive as they often set-up under Ange Postecoglu. They held Colombia to a goalless draw in a recent friendly and with easier games to come, they will be keen to avoid racking up a substantially negative goal difference. This isn’t the first time that France have opened up against inferior opposition. They won 3-0 against South Africa in 1998, lost 1-0 to Senegal in 2002, beat Togo 2-0 in Germany and were 3-0 winners against Honduras four years ago. Australia should be able to keep the score down in this game and there is value to be found in backing them to keep it respectable. France Win and Under 3.5 Goals is available at 10/11 and you can use the £50 free bet from Ladbrokes to back our selection.

Argentina vs Iceland Prediction

The second of today’s World Cup betting tips will come from the Argentina vs Iceland match. Iceland will be hoping to spring a surprise once again and they will sense an opportunity to trouble the Argentinian defence in this fixture. Argentina have the firepower and Lionel Messi will be hoping to add to his four goals from 2014 but they are worryingly limited at the back and that could be the best way into this game. The bookmakers are expecting Los Albiceleste to keep a clean sheet in this game but I’m not so sure. Iceland love tournament football and proved during qualifying that they weren’t just a flash in the pan. Ahead of the tournament, they’ve also looked fairly leaky and let a 2-0 lead slip against Ghana. Despite their progress in France, they lost the shot-count heavily in all of those games and Argentina should get plenty of opportunities. Over 2.5 Goals is available at Evens with 888Sport and is the second of today’s World Cup betting tips.

Peru vs Denmark Prediction

The second Group C game of the day is an interesting prospect. These two teams will each fancy their chances of making it through to the round of 16 and Peru will be delighted to have Paulo Guerrero back in the side. Christian Eriksen will be key to Denmark’s chances of making it through a competitive Group C and he is likely to have a huge say in this game. Peru could be hard to shift as they are playing with plenty of confidence at the moment and Guerrero is likely to be heavily involved. He netted five times in 17 qualifiers and scored some vitally important goals for Los Incas. He will be delighted to be representing his country and will be determine to make the most of his opportunity. The third of today’s World Cup betting tips is Paolo Guerrero to Score Anytime. He can be backed at 13/5 with Bet365.

Croatia vs Nigeria Prediction

The final World Cup 2018 match on Saturday comes from Group D and sees Croatia face Nigeria. The European side don’t have a good record in recent tournaments and they were completely outclassed by Brazil during a recent friendly. They have a talented squad and a decent spine of a team but they weren’t particularly impressive during qualifying. Nigeria looked poor against England in the first half of their recent friendly and they’ve netted just two goals during their four warm-up friendlies. They have some exciting, young players but it may be another come of years before this time starts to truly find its feet. Croatia have a habit of just getting the job done although they haven’t a World Cup opener since 1998. Nigeria keep bumping into Argentina in their opening World Cup games but this isn’t much easier. Croatia should pick up three points here in a tight game. Croatia Win and Under 2.5 Goals is available at 21/10 with Betfred. You can use their £30 to back this outcome.
