World Cup 2018 – Round 1 Tips

The biggest sporting event on earth is here – the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. The tournament brings together 32 nations over four weeks of non-stop football.

Competing countries are seeded and divided into eight groups where the top two finishers qualify for the knockout stages (round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals, final). Germany are the defending World Cup champions.

Monday 18 June

Germany 0 : 1 Mexico

The reigning World Cup and Confederations Cup champions are not surprisingly one of the tournament fancies and will be keen to justify their world number one ranking against Mexico, semi-finalists of the CONCACAF Gold Cup last year. Hard to see any result other than a German victory.

Oligarch’s Tip*: Germany to win, Timo Werner to score any time

Brazil 1 : 1 Switzerland

After a calamitous semi-final defeat to Germany in the last World Cup, Brazil will be determined to make a statement with an opening round victory. Switzerland have scored nine goals in their last three but are unlikely to pose much threat to the tournament favourites.

Oligarch’s Tip*: Brazil (-2.0), Neymar to score any time

Sweden v South Korea – at 10pm

A must win match if either team hopes to progress past the group stage. Sweden have struggled to score without retired superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovich but are ranked more than 30 places higher than South Korea, which have also found goals hard to come by in recent games.

Oligarch’s Tip*: Sweden to win, total goals under 2.5

Tuesday 19 June

Belgium v Panama – at 1am

Belgium have been in rampant form, scoring 15 goals in their last five outings. With attacking talent like Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Dries Mertens they should be much too good for 55th-ranked Panama.

Oligarch’s Tip*: Belgium to win, Eden Hazard to score any time, total goals over 2.5

Tunisia v England – at 4am

England are heavy favourites to get their campaign off on the right foot but ought not to underestimate Tunisia who have been far from disgraced in warm-up games against European heavyweights Portugal and Spain.

Oligarch’s Tip*: England to win, total goals under 2.5

Colombia v Japan – at 10pm

Colombia were over-achievers at the last World Cup but are expected to be in the thick of the action this time around. A recent defeat of France will have given them the confidence to account for a Japanese side that has lost three of its last four.

Oligarch’s Tip*: Colombia (-2.0), Juan Cuadrado to score any time

Wednesday 20 June

Poland v Senegal – at 1am

Much of Poland’s prospects will rest on the shoulders of top class striker Robert Lewandowski, who has found the back of the net in every game in which Poland has scored since June 2016. Similarly, Senegal will be heavily relying on Sadio Mane.

Oligarch’s Tip*: Both teams to score, Poland to come from behind and draw
