It comes down to this is groups C and D. In Group C France lead the way with Denmark close behind, a draw between these nations will put both into the last 16. Australia play Peru in the other game, Australia need to win to keep their hopes alive. In Group D Croatia already have a spot in the last 16, they face Iceland. Nigeria and Argentina clash, with the South Americans needing a win to stand a chance of progressing. Predictions below;

Predictions World Cup 2018 Group Stage Games (Day 12 / June 25th-26th)

France 1 – 1 Denmark

Group C -Tuesday 11pm (Korea Time)

The first of the two games in Group D features the top two sides, however neither has set the world alight during this world cup. France won both of their opening games by a single goal. Denmark edged Peru then drew with Denmark. I see this ending in a draw, as that will put both sides into the last 16.

 

Australia 1 – 0 Peru

Group C – Tuesday 11pm (Korea Time)

The second game from Group C features the two nations currently at the bottom of the group. Australia have a single point from their opening 2 games, but have looked committed. Peru were underdogs in the group, and despite 2 close games lost both. I see a narrow win for Australia, which maybe enough to put them into the last 16.

 

Croatia 3 – 1 Iceland

Group D – Wednesday 3am (Korea Time)

Moving onto Group C, we have an all European game between Croatia and Iceland. Croatia have been impressive so far, beating both Nigeria and thumping Argentina. Iceland have been impressive in their first world cup, holding Argentina and narrowly losing to Nigeria. I see a win for Croatia who might take their foot off the gas towards the end of the game.

 

Nigeria 1 – 1 Argentina

Group D – Wednesday 3am (Korea Time)

The other group from Group B is the big one, as Nigeria take on Argentina. Argentina have had a poor tournament so far, drawing with Iceland then losing badly to Croatia. Nigeria have done a little better, beating Iceland but also losing to Croatia. I see this one ending in a draw, and so Nigeria probably progressing and Argentina going home.
