|France vs Australia||France Asian Handicap -1.75 @ 2.00|
|June 16, 18:00 (GMT+8)|
Les Bleus somehow failed to beat the USA last week, but it wasn’t for the lack of chances and I can’t see them letting the Socceroos off the hook so lightly.
Didier Deschamps has a side dripping with quality, but whether they have the steel to win the tournament remains to be seen. They are clear favourites to win Group C and couldn’t have had a much easier start than this.
The 38-year-old Tim Cahill is still in the Aussie squad, making it a fourth World Cup for the former Everton and Millwall star. His team has had back-to-back wins, but the only previous meeting with France resulted in a 6-0 thumping.
|Argentina vs Iceland||Over 2.5 Goals @ 2.04|
|June 16, 21:00 (GMT+8)|
Jorge Sampaoli’s Argentina made the finals by the skin of their teeth, thanks to a magical performance from Leo Messi. However, they are in danger of looking like they’d struggle to cope in Group D without their talisman. In his absence, they were hammered 6-1 by Spain back in March.
Not to mention that they have only played once after that, a 4-0 win over Haiti.
Iceland are no longer a surprise package after their skill and team ethic took the Euro’s by storm in 2016, sending England home in the process. Look out for Johann Berg Gudmundson—the Burnley winger has had an outstanding season as the Turf Moor side qualified for Europe—as his pace and delivery could seriously test Argentina.
The Icemen don’t arrive in the best of form though, without a win in the last four games that saw them concede 11 goals.
|Peru vs Denmark||Draw @ 3.10|
|June 17, 00:00 (GMT+8)|
Peru make a first appearance at the World Cup since 1982, and their fans will hope the 36-year wait will be worth it! They need to enjoy themselves as much as they can, while they can, because Group C will be mighty hard to escape from.
Skipper Paolo Guerrero is a lucky lad, having his drugs ban lifted at the request of the other three Group C teams, and he will hope to be Peru’s goal threat.
Denmark flew into the finals on the back of a stunning playoff performance from Christian Eriksen against Ireland, scoring a hat-trick to take his tally to 11 in the last 14 games.
A 0-0 draw in Sweden halted a run of five consecutive wins for Peru, while the Danes are unbeaten in four.
