Playfantasy – 1st paragraph

Iceland vs Ghana

Iceland will be featuring in this year’s FIFA World Cup for the very first time. This is an achievement for the country as they ended up winning UEFA Group I to qualify for the coveted event. Ghana, on the other hand, are not going to feature in this edition of the World Cup. Ghana’s best World cup performance came in the year 2010 in South Africa where they ended up as the quarter-finalists.

Iceland’s form hasn’t been great ever since they qualified for the World Cup, in their last 5 games they have won 2 and lost 3 on the trot. While Ghana has been in some good nick of late as they have not lost a single match of their last 5 and have won 3 with 2 games ending up as a draw.

Here are the betting odds for the game,

Bet365: Iceland: 13/10, Draw: 11/5, Ghana: 11/5

Skybet: Iceland: 5/4, Draw: 11/5, Ghana: 23/10

BoyleSports: Iceland: 27/20, Draw: 2/1, Ghana: 11/5   

 

Germany vs Saudi Arabia

Current World Champions Germany will square off against Saudi Arabia in their next friendly encounter. It will be a daunting task for Saudi Arabia to deliver their best effort against a quality side like Germany.

The last time these two sides faced each other was way back in the year 2002, and it was a World Cup game. The German’s made a mockery of their opponents as they gave them an unforgettable beating of 8-0 and cruised themselves over their opponents in a drastic manner.

Though Germany’s current form is not worthy of mentioning as they have not won a single game out of the last five games they have played. In their first friendly match against Austria they suffered a 2-1 defeat, and with the likes of Mesut Ozil, veteran Thomas Muller, Lukas Podolski and the star midfielder Bastin Schweinsteiger this is something uncharacteristic.

They need to regroup as a team otherwise their title defense this year could be in jeopardy.

Here are the betting odds for the game,

Bet365: Germany: 1/14, Draw: 11/1, Saudi Arabia: 22/1

Skybet: Germany: 1/16, Draw: 10/1, Saudi Arabia: 28/1

Ladbrokes: Germany: 1/20, Draw: 12/1, Saudi Arabia: 66/1

 

Poland vs Chile

After missing out on the last two editions of FIFA World Cup, the Polish team is set to feature in this edition of the mega event. This will be the 8th time when they will be making an appearance in the World Cup and first after 2006. Therefore, they would like to start their preparation with a win in this encounter as the mega event is just a week away.

The Copa America champions Chile have missed the train to the World Cup this year, but they have played some decent football of late. Their recent show suggests that they have won 2, lost 2 and drawn 1 in their last 5 fixtures. Their win came against Sweden(2-1) and Serbia(1-0).

This will be the first time these two teams will face-off in an International match as they have not come across each other previously.

Here are the betting odds for the game,

Bet365: Poland: 5/6, Draw: 23/10, Chile: 7/2

Skybet: Poland: 10/11, Draw: 5/2, Chile: 3/1

Betfair: Poland: 20/23, Draw: 12/5, Chile: 16/5

 

Croatia vs Senegal

Croatia will be up against Senegal as this will be their last International fixture before the FIFA World Cup. Senegal will be featuring for the second time in the World Cup, their last and only appearance was in the 2002 edition where they had an impressive show as they were the quarter-finalists.

Croatia feature in the last edition of FIFA World Cup where they could not enter in the last 16 and were comprehensively out of the tournament as they finished 19th. They are coming into this game after going down to Brazil (2-0) in their last match. While Senegal had a goalless draw against Luxembourg in their previous appearance on the pitch.

Here are the betting odds for the game,

Bet365: Croatia: 3/4, Draw: 12/5, Senegal: 4/1

Skybet: Croatia: 4/5, Draw: 12/5, Senegal: 19/5

Betfair: Croatia: 4/6, Draw: 12/5, Senegal: 9/2
