  1. I took Rennes at 2.12 tonight. They should be too strong for Nimes who are in some terrible form and had some dreadful (h) results recently. Rennes have a great chance to capitalise and go clear in 3rd tonight.
  2. @BHAadam: Lazio can still qualify if Celtic beat Cluj and Lazio win. They can still win it on the H2H.
  3. Uruguay (if Cavani/Suazez are fit) are way too big to not have a look at. France played well v Argentina but let's just remember how utterly abject this Argentina side is. I also think Sweden have a decent shot v England. They are a tough team to break down and extremely dynamic on the break in transition. They can also match England at set plays which appears to be there only real tactic. I still don't rate the English CM pairing either.
  4. Does anyone know if Lukuaku is fit and likely to play v England? I know he had an ankle knock v Tunisia.
  5. Madness to think that a one goal win for Sweden and a two goal win for Germany will send Mexico home. Would be extremely harsh. If I had to predict it I would be inclined to back the draw and you’d imagine it’ll be a low scoring affair. I think Mexico are rightly slight favourites due to their performances so far but if Sweden get their noses in front I’d fancy them to hang on. I just don’t see Mexico winning all three group games.
  6. I agree on Peru. I've taken them to win. 2.5 is a juicy price. The Aussies are a committed but very average outfit who fail to play through their best player Tom Rogic, the only guy in the squad capable of doing something sublime. This World Cup is a huge deal for Peru and I'd have no reason to doubt their commitment here. They'll be backed by a big support and winning a match will still be a huge incentive for them. They haven't played badly either, perhaps just a little naive and lacking in composure in the final 3rd.
  7. Had they not been given a soft penalty it would have ended in a right comfortable walk in the park for England. A 2nd goal in the opening spell and they'd have been on the end of a Saudi Arabiaesque hammering. Tunisia had the goal scoring threat of Scotland playing 4-6-0 under Craig Levein.
  8. I'll take England to win to nil @ 2.00 Also CS 2-0 England @ 6.00 Don't think it'll be an easy game but England should win with a bit to spare. Assuming Southgate goes with the two holding mids they should be able to tighten up and close a game out comfortably against crap like Tunisia.
  9. Really fancy Cavani to get 2+ goals against the Saudis. I don't think I've ever seen a less dominant Cb pairing at the tournament. They quite literally lost every 50/50 in the air v the Russians. Will look into the odds on him scoring with his head too.
  10. I had a tasty little draw double on both Morocco/Iran and Spain/Portugal. Iranians:(
  11. Agree with Pep. Really fancy Croatia here especially given the Argies result. Wouldn't surprise me if they win the group. I just don't see it with Nigeria. Nothing to suggest they will get more than a draw here if lucky. Croatia can take control of the group with a win and fancy them to. Took Croatia with a boost of WilliamHill @1.75.
  12. If the Swiss can stay injury and suspension free I think they are in for a good tourney. Fancy them to take 2nd and give the Brazilians a tough game.
  13. Wow. That Saudi defense is absolutely pathetic. Can't wait for Uruguay to get tore into them.
  14. First bet of the tourney. Saudis +2 @ 1.60 Russia are weak, and the Saudis are going to keep it tight as fcuk at the back. If Russia go 1 goal up they will close up and sit tight defensively so just cannot see them chasing goals here. Any win will do for Russia and in any of the 3 games. Performances mean bugger all. If the Saudi's score Russia probably wont have an answ er so fancy this bet to come in.
  15. WilliamHill on outright winner and top goalscorer gives you a 5quid free bet each time yer team win or your player scores (if that's ye meant).
  16. Agree that Russia should score a tight win here but don't see any worth in them outright nor do I trust this Russian team. Under 2.5 goals looks a decent shot.
  17. The thing is, Uruguay are not free scorers and these group games can be really tight even against poor teams. To win 3 group games at a World Cup takes real ruthlessness and im not sure I see it in them. They'll top the group but probably not on 9 points. It wouldn't shock me at all to see them draw v Russia or Egypt. Also there's a chance the 3rd game is a dead rubber that they don't have to win.
