Germany Can Beat Sweden In Crucial Match
If Germany lose to Sweden today they are almost certainly out of the World Cup and will become the second successive holders not to progress to the knockout stages. Spain did not get out of their group four years ago having won the World Cup in South Africa in 2010. Germany looked out of sorts against Mexico in their first match and there are rumours of disharmony in the camp. However, when it matters most the side delivers so GERMANY are the bet to win today at 8/15 with Ladbrokes.
Mexico beat Germany in their first fixture and were better value than the 1-0 win especially in the first half. Mexico played with pace and could have scored more than one goal and were resolute in defence when Germany were trying to peg them back after the break. South Korea did not create many chances when losing to Sweden in their opening fixture and don’t have the players to trouble their opponents today. MEXICO should be backed to beat South Korea at 7/10 with William Hill.
Belgium play Tunisia in England’s group and the outcome will indicate the value of England’s 2-1 win over the same side. England played well in the first half and could have been leading by several goals. However, the play was laboured and slow after Tunisia scored and maybe the late winner papered over the cracks. Belgium finally got going in the second half against Panama and were worthy winners. BELGIUM should beat Tunisia and that outcome is 1/3 with Betfair.
It’s the fifth and final day of Royal Ascot and the feature is the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at 4.20pm. The favourite is Harry Angel but horses based in Australia have won the race including Black Caviar in 2012. The Newmarket Handicap is one of the most prestigious sprint races at Australia. REDKIRK WARRIOR has won the race twice so is the selection for today’s six furlong contest and the best price is 9/2 with Coral.
