Harry Kane’s five goals in two matches in the World Cup so far give him a better goals-to-games ratio than anyone else, and put him ahead of all his competitors for the Golden Boot. Of all the players left in the competition, Romelu Lukaku (four), Artem Dzyuba, Denis Cheryshev, Kylian Mbappé and Edinson Cavani (three each) are his closest rivals.
The Tottenham danger man is expected to return to the starting line-up after being rested for the final group match against Belgium. Back him as Anytime Goalscorer at 2.20 here.
Over 2.5 Goals
Over 2.5 Goals has occurred in two out of three matches for both Colombia and England at the World Cup so far. With the stakes of a knockout match even higher, it is unlikely that either team will be holding back when they clash at Spartak Moscow’s Otkritie Arena tonight.
The last time the two met, England won 3-2. Bet on Over 2.5 Goals at odds of 2.70 here.
Both Teams to Score
Colombia have scored in eight of their last nine competitive matches, while a weakened England’s 1-0 loss to Belgium in the last match of Group G was the first time the Three Lions have failed to score in ten competitive matches. Combined, Colombia and England have scored 12 goals and conceded five in the World Cup so far. Odds for Both Teams to Score are at 2.15 here.
Second Half With Most Goals
The other match pencilled in for today features Sweden and Switzerland. Seven of the eight goals scored in the Swedes’ group matches came in the second half. The same is true for six of the nine goals scored in the Group E matches that featured Switzerland. Click here to bet on the Second Half With Most Goals at odds of 2.25.
Team to Advance
Sweden tripped once in the group stage when they lost 2-1 to the now deposed champions Germany. You would have to go back ten matches to the last time the Swiss lost, despite being in one of the trickiest groups; Group E also contained Serbia and favourites Brazil.
Switzerland have more recent experience playing in the knockout stages of the World Cup – eventual finalists Argentina needed extra time to nick a 1-0 win in the last 16 in Brazil four years ago. This is Sweden’s first appearance at the World Cup finals since 2006. You can bet on Switzerland as the Team to Advance; odds are at 1.70 here.
