Good performances at Football World Cup

The world football championship in Russia has undoubtedly been one of the most interesting in many years. Just the fact that so far have scored 20 goals after the regular 90 minutes in the 48 played matches, shows how exciting the games are. If we add to that the fact that the world champion from the previous edition – Germany is out of the tournament, as well as the infarct success of favorites like Argentina, Portugal and Spain, it becomes even clearer how unpredictable the tournament is.

Now after the end of the group stage and with only 16 matches remaining until the end of the championship it is time to make a balance and I will do mine. I predicted and bet on the winner of the match and the exact result on all 48 games played so far. Of them, I guessed correctly 26 for the winner of the match and 6 with the exact result. Achievement that is not something to boast about, but at least I kept myself above zero.

In the betting game for the winner, with single bet of €100, the net profit is €393. When playing on the correct score, the winnings are less. Six well-known outcomes of a total of 48 stakes of 10 euros each gave a loss of 70 euros.

Betting preview: Belgium vs England

Belgium and England go into the last match of their group at the World Cup. This will be a meeting which will decide who will finish at the top spot in the group. This match will also be a match in which will participate the two of most effective teams so far. Moreover, against one another will stand the top scorers so far – Harry Kane with five goals and Romelu Lukaku with 4. Many people expect a real show of goals of these two teams, but whether is it going to happen, we will see tonight at the stadium in Kaliningrad.

There are several huge differences between the two teams and they are at least in the fact that England came to this World Cup with a young team while Belgium for the last four years relied on much of its current team. England is one of the squads with the lowest number of games played for the national team average for each player, while the Belgians certainly already gained experience by participating in several major championships.

Another difference between the two teams is the way of scoring goals. So far England is almost flawless in the use of static positions and much of their goals came that way. Belgium, in turn, uses pure football skills of their big stars like Lukaku, Hazard and Mertens to hits its marks. Statistics show that Belgium has made eight more shots on goals more than its rivals in today’s match – 38 against 30.

Only Brazil and Germany have created more goal attempts than the Belgians. The accuracy of the Belgians, however, is much better than the achievements of Brazil and Germany – 8 goals against respectively 3 and 2. Belgium is the first in number of shots on the opponent’s – 18, as England was second with 15. The British, however, led to another important statistic, and it is for the highest number real threads in front of the goal.

After all these considerations will hardly surprise anyone that a prognosis for both teams to score looks like a pretty likely. The odds proposed by the bookmakers so it is 1.9, which makes it really pretty decent bet.
