Steady Swedes to miss out


After the drama of the last-gasp victory against Sweden, Germany should confirm their place in the round of 16 by beating South Korea but who joins them in the knockout stages from Group F remains up for grabs.

Incredibly Mexico, despite beating Germany and South Korea, may miss out on a top-two finish if they lose to a Sweden side on Wednesday that will still be smarting from their heartbreaking 2-1 defeat to Joachim Low’s outfit.

Germany 7/2 to be eliminated in the quarter-finals

Germany look set to continue their record of having never failed to progress from the group stage at a World Cup but this team’s defensive frailties are there for all to see and, if they avoid Brazil in the round of 16, victory in the quarter-finals may be beyond them.

South Korea have Son Heung-min in their ranks and the Tottenham man is 33/10 to score at anytime against a Germany side that should win the match but may concede a goal. A Germany win and both teams to score is available at 6/4.

Sweden 47/20 to draw against Mexico

Sweden looked very tired in the second half of their game against Germany when they were hanging on for a point despite playing against 10 men in the closing stages.

They remain a solid side but it is difficult to see how they can beat an effervescent team that know they only need a draw to reach the round of 16.

Under 1.5 goals to be scored at 39/20

It looks set to be a low-scoring affair with Mexico determined to secure the point they need and the Scandinavians not used to being the aggressors in a game.

They edged past Italy in the play-offs to secure their place in Russia but struggled to impose themselves on South Korea when they were expected to win.

A 1-0 victory for Mexico at 13/2 appears to be a worthwhile bet with Hirving Lozano good value at 13/2 to score the first goal.
