World Cup Group Matches Acca


World Cup First Matches Acca

The first thing to remember when making your betting plans for the World Cup is that it is a marathon and not a sprint, with a full 64 matches crammed into the 29 days of action. Nevertheless, it is always nice to get off to a good start. With the two opening rounds of fixtures now priced up, here’s where our Acca cash is going in an effort to get punting proceedings into profit.

DENMARK (4/9) to beat Tunisia – Tuesday 22nd November 1pm

Denmark look one of the more lively outsiders for the tournament on the back of an almost faultless qualifying campaign, and two recent wins over current World Champions France. Expected to make the knockout stages at the very least, they can get off to a solid start with a win over a limited Tunisia outfit who only just scraped past Mali to book their ticket to the tournament.

PORTUGAL (2/5) to beat Ghana – Thursday 24th November 4pm

Cristiano Ronaldo may be a fading force but is still a reliable source of goals for the national side, and via the likes of Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, João Félix, and Rafael Leão has the type of supply line Ghana can only dream about. Too organised, too well coached, and too talented, they ought to have too much for the African nation who can be explosive in bursts but lack cohesiveness.

ARGENTINA (4/7) to beat Mexico – Saturday 26th November 7pm

Provided all goes to plan in their opener against Saudi Arabia, Argentina should be on the cusp of wrapping up the group by the time their second game against Mexico comes around, and they can be backed to get the job done. Mexico have a habit of going well at major tournaments, and are good in possession, without really turning that possession into goals. With many players in key positions now the wrong side of 30, they will be doing well to keep Messi, Martinez and co quiet for the duration of this.

A £10 treble on the above returns £31.78, but those looking to boost the returns may wish to add the following.

NETHERLANDS (8/13) to beat Ecuador – Friday 25th November 4pm

Boosts returns to £51.33 for a £10 four-fold.

The Netherlands may not have quite the star-studded squad of tournaments past, but do boast an attractive mix of youth and experience, in addition to one of the most experienced and successful managers in the tournament in Louis van Gaal. Ecuador are no mugs but play an exaggerated high-line which looks like trouble facing a well-organised Dutch outfit with blistering pace on the counter down both flanks.

SWITZERLAND (8/13) to beat Cameroon – Thursday 24th November 10am

Boosts returns to £87.27 for a £10 five-fold.

If Switzerland are to have any hope of making the knockout phase, they surely have this pencilled in as a must-win fixture. Whilst unspectacular, the Swiss did make an impressive run to the Quarter-Finals at Euro 2020, knocking out France, and only losing to Spain on penalties in the last eight. Very organised at the back, they should have enough going the other way to get through a Cameroon side who look one of the weaker African nations at the tournament.

CROATIA (10/11) to beat Morocco – Wednesday 23rd November 10am

Boosts returns to £166.60 for a £10 six-fold.

Unexpectedly finishing as runners-up in Russia in 2018, Croatia are perhaps flying a little under the radar once again. A midfield of Luka Modric, Marcelo Brozovic, Mateo Kovacic and Lovro Majjer is elite level, and certainly way above anything Morocco can be expected to field. Expect Croatia to boss this in the engine room and take advantage of Morocco’s problems at the heart of their defence.
