World Cup Round of 16 betting preview and advices
Sweden – Switzerland predictions
Red Crosses played above praise at the group stage and did not lose a single match, extending their unbeaten run to nine games. Switzerland remains a tough nut, which few teams could crack, because they have lost only one game from the last 25, when Portugal was able to beat them in qualifying. A draw with Costa Rica should not be taken seriously, because Red Crosses did what they had to do – they beat their main rival Serbia, and got one point against favourite, the Brazilian. Undoubtedly, their inconsistent play in defence causes great fears, because the Swiss have conceded in all three games in Russia, and today they will be without suspended defenders Stephan Lichtsteiner (captain) and Fabian Schär. The Swedes demonstrated solid defensive football and looked disciplined, rarely mistaken in penalty area, so it would be difficult to break through their defence. Given Red Crosses` losses in the defence, they are unlikely to decide to play aggressively, so, most likely, we are waiting for a low-scoring game. Nevertheless, if we compare these teams` squads, then we should give the advantage to Switzerland. On the other hand, the Yellow-blue showed a fantastic football against Mexico, once again proving their Nordic temper. Both teams will be able to find the net today, but still cannot reveal the winner.

Colombia – England predictions
The Coffee Growers impressed everyone with their performance at the group stage, because they destroyed the Poles and could defeat their direct competitor Senegal in the main battle. No one seriously took defeat from Japan, because Carlos Sanchez was sent off already in the third minute of the game. At the same time, England lost to the only strong team in its group, and no one saw, as a significant achievement, wins over weak Tunisia and Panama. Unlike the bookmakers, many are confident that the Colombians are the favourites of this game. However, it will be smart to concur in the views of the bookmakers. What did Colombia show? Not much! They could not hold a draw against the Japanese, they defeated Senegal, which could hardly be called strong rival, and destroyed Poland, but we all saw later that the Eagles are not so good as they are painted. Maybe we cannot judge the strength of England on matches with two outsiders, but who said that defeat from Belgium does really matter, anyway? First, to lose to such a strong team as the Red Devils is not shameful. Secondly, in that game, the Three Lions was not motivated. Third, England, after losing this game, in fact, secured a semi-final (of course, if they could defeat Colombia today), because in the quarterfinals they will be waiting for Sweden or Switzerland. Thus, this defeat almost guaranteed the British match for bronze! Harry Kane and Co demonstrated one of the best footballs in Russia and should beat the Coffee Growers in a high-scoring game.
