World Cup 2018 – Round 2 Tips

Here are your World Cup 2018 Round 2 matches and tips.

Russia v Egypt

Russia kicked off their campaign in the best way possible with a 6-0 drubbing of Saudi Arabia but face a tougher task against Egypt, who showed considerable fight in heart-breaking 1-0 loss to Uruguay.

Tip: Draw

Portugal v Morocco

Portugal featured in the highest quality match of the opening round when drawing 3-3 with Spain. A similar performance here should see them brush aside Morocco with relative ease.

Tip: Portugal (-2.0)

Uruguay v Saudi Arabia

Uruguay scraped past Egypt at the death via a Jose Gimenez goal but are expected to improve second-up which spells trouble for Saudi Arabia who were demolished 6-0 by Russia in the opening round.

Tip: Uruguay to win, score in both halves

Iran v Spain

Were it not for the heroics of Cristiano Ronaldo, Spain would have comfortably beaten Portugal. Despite losing their coach on the eve of the tournament, they proved the better side for most of the match and are expected to make short work of Asian minnows Iran.

Tip: Spain (-2.0), Iran to be kept scoreless

Denmark v Australia

It’s crunch time here for Australia after an admirable 2-1 loss to Group favourites France. Quality in the final third is needed but they have the potential to upset the Danes, who can all but seal qualification for the round of 16 with victory here.

Tip: Australia to win, total match goals under 2.5

France v Peru

France were unconvincing in their 2-1 win over Australia, but their team is built of superstars and even a slightly improved performance is likely to be enough to see off Peru.

Tip: France to win, Kylian Mbappe to score any time

Argentina v Croatia

Arguably the match of the round with the winner likely to claim top spot in Group D. Croatia are the dark horses of the tournament and can make a statement against the runners-up of 2014, who were kept to a 1-1 draw by plucky Iceland.

Tip: Draw

Brazil v Costa Rica

A shaky 1-1 draw with Switzerland was not the start Brazil were hoping for but there were fitness concerns of some key players leading into the match – including Neymar. Costa Rica were surprise packets at the last World Cup but face a daunting task here.

Tip: Brazil to win

Nigeria v Iceland

Both teams look up against it in terms of qualification for the round of 16 but Iceland acquitted themselves remarkably well in their first World Cup match by drawing 1-1 with Argentina. They will fancy taking three points off a Nigerian team that has looked disorganised.

Tip: Iceland to win, total match goals under 2.5

Serbia v Switzerland

Serbia were saved by an Aleksandar Kolarov free kick against Costa Rica last time out and will likely require another moment of brilliance to take points away from Switzerland a side that used their physicality to draw 1-1 with Brazil.

Tip: Draw

Belgium v Tunisia

A Romelu Lukaku double helped Belgium start the campaign with an impressive 3-0 win over Panama. Goals are less likely to flow against Tunisia, who showed resilience in a 2-1 loss to England, but a Belgium victory looks the only outcome here.

Tip: Belgium to win

South Korea v Mexico

South Korea’s struggles in front of goal continued in a dour 1-0 loss to Sweden and they face a considerable task in stopping Mexico, who are on a high after upsetting reigning champions Germany.

Tip: Mexico to win

Germany v Sweden

Germany will be keen to rectify a shock first-up loss to Mexico with three points here. Thought they struggled to penetrate Mexico, there were enough glimpses to suggest Sweden will have a harder time defending for long periods.

Tip: Germany to win, Toni Kroos to score any time

England v Panama

A late Harry Kane header saw the new-look England snatch all three points against Tunisia. England fans will accept nothing but victory here ahead of a crucial showdown with Belgium, and as long as Kane is on the field, that looks all but guaranteed.

Tip: England to win, Harry Kane to score, total goals +2.5

Japan v Senegal

Japan were unconvincing in a 2-1 defeat of a 10-man Colombia, scoring their goals from a penalty and corner. Without the same luck against Senegal, who knocked off Poland in their opening match, it could be a vastly different result.

Tip: Senegal to win, Sadio Mane to score

Poland v Colombia

Colombia fought gallantly in their 2-1 loss to Japan but ultimately wilted after losing Carlos Sanchez to a straight red in the third minute. With James Rodriguez expected to start, they have great chance to set the record straight and knock out Poland in the process.

Tip: Colombia to win, Radamel Falcao to score
