Predictions World Cup 2018 Round of 16 (July 1st-2nd)
Spain 2 – 1 Russia
Round of 16 – Sunday 11pm (Korea Time)
The first of the days (third overall) round of 16 game is between 2012 Champions Spain and hosts Russia. Spain won group B ahead of Portugal, but 1 win and 2 draws wasn’t the most impressive record. Russia finished 2nd in group A beating Saudi Arabia and Egypt, but lost to Uruguay in the final group game.
I feel Spain will come out on top here, however as hosts Russia might spring a surprise.
Croatia 2 – 0 Denmark
Round of 16 – Saturday 3am (Korea Time)
The second game of the day is between Croatia and Denmark. Croatia impressively topped group D with a perfect record 3 from 3, scoring 7 and conceding just one. Denmark came second in group C behind France following a win over Peru and draws against Australia and France.
Based on the group stage performances Croatia are the favorites in this one.
(Also I’m not sure about the kit selections for this game)
