Croatia midfielder Luka Modric plays down Christian Eriksen midfield battle

01 July, 2018, 21:55 | Author: Candice Daniels

Croatia and Denmark have won two apiece with one of the fixtures ending in a draw.

Russian Federation came into the tournament derided by their own supporters after a string of defeats in warm-up matches but they thrashed Saudi Arabia 5-0 in their opener and then swept aside Egypt 3-1, making even their own sceptical public believe. The Tottenham star only scored once in the group stage (Denmark only scored twice, with Eriksen assisting on the other goal), but he is capable of a difference-making moment that requires the opposition to remain on its toes.

This is the World Cup! Sumpter is an applied mathematician who wrote "Soccermatics", a book that explains how math works inside the sport.

"What will decide the game will be how the teams perform as teams". In almost three seasons since its inception, the Soccerbot is up an incredible 1,800 percent on bookmakers' closing odds. It also correctly predicted Iran upsetting Morocco at +275, just to name a few of its big calls. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Independent: "Denmark face an almighty challenge in getting past Croatia". The model has released a very strong money-line pick, which it's sharing only over at SportsLine. But we stopped Lionel Messi in the game against Argentina, so we can do it again.

Both teams concidentally had their best World Cup showings 20 years ago.

Russian Federation 2018 has been packed with upsets.

LeBron James to opt out, will become a free agent
But the Cavaliers assembled a weak supporting cast around James last season and attempted to revamp the team the trade deadline. Coming off one of the best seasons of his career, James is one of the most sought-after free agents in the league's history.

Croatia's offense has come to life in Russian Federation 2018, scoring seven goals, but its defense has also been stellar.

Perhaps, in part, it is because Iniesta's brilliance has been backed up by achievements on the world stage - he scored the winning goal in the 2010 World Cup final - while Modric has not hit the same heights with Croatia. It closed out group play by beating Argentina by three.

Saturday's dramatic last-16 openers, which featured 10 goals, marked a handing on of the torch to a new generation, with French teenager Kylian Mbappe announcing himself on the world stage. However, it has only advanced past the Round of 16 once, which was back in 1998.

They are in fine form, too, riding an 18-game unbeaten wave.

But confidence is not in short supply in the Danish camp either, having come through a tough group with the concession of just one goal.

So which hungry nation wins Sunday?
