Bet on the World Cup quarter finals with the Cod Army
First up is an all-European showdown between a youthful exuberant French side, who have taken the World Cup by storm, against the German’s.
Joachim Löw’s side have not quite hit the peak of their powers in this tournament, but still boast a squad packed full of experienced quality looking to transform from the nearly men of world football into champions.
Germany go into the game as slight favourites to claim the first semi-final slot and Sky Bet, the official betting partner of the Football League, are tipping them at 6/4 odds on.
France, however, are not far behind according to Sky Bet and have been priced at 2/1 with a draw coming in at 9/4.
Before you have time to catch your breath, refill your drink and get sat back down, host’s Brazil will take to the field in Fortazela against a Columbia side who have also impressed thus far.
Brazil narrowly scraped past Chile through the lottery of a penalty shootout, whilst Columbia, thanks largely to the excellent of James Rodriguez, comfortably bypassed Uruguay.
Luiz Scolari’s side, though, remain heavy favourites to take the next step of their destiny and secure in the place in the last four with a price of 5/6 with Sky Bet.
Columbia have been cast as heavy outsiders at 7/2, whilst a draw after 90 minutes is at a reasonable 13/5 ahead of tonight’s second semi-final contest.
The Tour de France maybe coming to Yorkshire, but all eyes will soon return to the World Cup in the evening after the first stage as the second, and final, round of fixtures will be competed.
Leo Messi will be looking to continue his fine run in the tournament – scoring four goals so far – when Argentina lock horns with the ‘Golden Generation’ from Belgium.
For Messi to be the first goalscorer in the capital Brasilia, Sky Bet are offering odds of 3/1 and the South American have been made favourites ahead of the game at 11/10.
Belgium, however, have got better as the tournament have gone on and with the strength in depth they have within their ranks, a price of 11/4 is worth a punt.
Three down, one to go and the team of the tournament so far, Costa Rica, will be looking to send more shockwaves through the sandy beaches of Brazil when they take on Netherlands in Saturday night’s clash.
Unsurprisingly, the Dutch, managed by Louis Van Gaal, have been priced as heavy favourites at 2/1 whilst if you fancy Costa Rica to belly their ranking once again, Sky Bet are offering a good price of 6/1.
