Brazil cruised to the quarter final of the 2018 World cup in Russia thanks to goal from Neymar and Firmino which landed us the second winning in the second day of the month. Today’s pick will also come from Russia where England and Colombia fight it out for a place in the quarter final of the ongoing FIFA World cup . Details as follows;
FIFA World Cup, Russia 2018
Colombia vs England
Pick: England win or draw and over 1.5 goals
ANALYSIS AND MATCH PREVIEW
England come into this game on a back of a 1-0 defeat against Belgium, but we can’t read too much meaning into that game as both team went with their team B. The three Lions scored 8 goals in two opening games 2 against Tunisia and 6 against Panama. England have shown vulnerabilities conceding goals to Tunisia and Panama through set pieces; and that is something Colombia would have watched on tape as they aim to disrupt England’s 3 man defensive unit. This formation has already seen them concede in all 3 games in the World Cup against Tunisia, Panama and Belgium and additionally in their warm up friendly against Nigeria as well.
Colombia have proven that the first loss of Japan was a fluke and purely down to their early red card that they faced and then they came back to beat Poland 3-0 and followed that up with a 1-0 win over Senegal to put them as the group leaders, where they were favored to finish earlier on. Colombia will once again rely on their attacking unit including Falcao, Muriel, Quintero and Cuadrado to attack at pace moments in order to help them win this encounter. The major doubt for Colombia is James Rodriguez due to his calf injury which limits their creative options as well as set piece take that would have enabled them to progress to the next stage. The Colombian defense have been pretty good, but haven’t been challenge by a high quality team so far this tournament unlike they will face with England heading into this game.
All in all, while we can’t rule out the possibilities of both teams scoring here, the English side still remain the favourite to progress. Therefore, i will be backing England not to lose in a game that will see at least 2 goals as today’s banker pick.
