Predictions World Cup 2018 Round of 16 (July 3rd-4th)

Sweden 1 – 2 Switzerland

Round of 16 – Tuesday 11pm (Korea Time)

The first game of the evening is between Sweden and Switzerland. Many years ago both nations did well in the competition, but in recent times they’ve not fared so well. Sweden topped group F beating South Korea and Mexico, losing only to Germany. Switzerland finished behind Brazil in group E, drawing with the South Americans before beating Serbia and then drawing with Costa Rica.
Sweden might have the slight edge on paper, we see Switzerland coming out on top here and progressing to the Quarter Finals.

 

Colombia 1 – 2 England

Round of 16 – Tuesday 3am (Korea Time)

The second game of the day and final Round of 16 game is between group H winners Colombia and group G runners-up England. Colombia lost their opening game to Japan, but did play almost the whole game with only 10 men. They went onto win their final 2 games and topped the group. England started strong beating Tunisia before hammering Panama 6-1. They then lost to Belgium in a dull and boring game.
Overall England should have the edge, but as it’s the World Cup things are never simple. So I could go to extra time.
