Ghana vs Uruguay: Kudus, Nunez & Bentancur each 1+ shots on target, each team 3+ corners & each team 20+ booking pts - 18/1

Ghana and Uruguay meet in a re-match of their infamous 2010 World Cup quarter-final, with both sides knowing that a victory would send their opponents out of the competition as a whole.

Ajax midfielder Mohammed Kudus was electric in the Black Stars' 3-2 win over South Korea in Group H, as the 22-year-old bagged a vital brace for his side. Meanwhile, both Darwin Nunez and Rodrigo Bentancur had shots on target in Uruguay’s disappointing 2-0 loss to Portugal.

In Ghana’s 3-2 win over the Lions of Asia, there were 17 corners in the match, with the Black Stars having five of these - there were also two yellow cards shown to each side in this match. Uruguay had two corners against Portugal, while also receiving two yellow cards.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be determined to add to the 118 goals he has scored in 193 appearances for his national side. In the 37-year-old’s last 14 starts for Portugal, he has had a total of 27 shots on target.

Cameroon and Brazil go head to head with the Indomitable Lions facing the unenviable task of needing to win to stay in the competition, while Brazil are through to the Round of 16.

Brazil have managed to win both of their previous two matches at this World Cup to nil, having won 2-0 and 1-0 against Serbia and Switzerland.

In Tite’s men’s victory over the Swiss, there were a total of 11 corners in the match while there were a total of four yellow cards in Cameroon’s recent 3-3 draw with Serbia, with both sides receiving two yellow cards each.

Serbia vs Switzerland: Aleksandar Mitrovic 2+ shots on target, BTTS, each team 4+ corners and each team 20+ booking pts - 9/1

Serbia against Switzerland will be a straight shoot-out between two sides that are intent on making the Round of 16 in Qatar.

Fulham striker Mitrovic is Serbia’s all-time top scorer with 51 goals in 78 caps and even managed to score last time out in his side’s 3-3 draw with Cameroon. The 28-year-old had two shots on target against the Indomitable Lions.

As previously mentioned, both sides scored as Serbia drew 3-3 with Cameroon and there is a decent chance that this could be the case again with both the Serbs and Swiss being fairly evenly matched.

Switzerland have had 14 corners in two matches at the World Cup, while Serbia have had seven. On top of this, Serbia have been shown five yellow cards, two more than the three that Switzerland has received.
