Uruguay has done a great World Cup and eyes a bronze medal when they clashes with Germany this Saturday. Uruguay pays a massive 5.10 in odds and Diego Forlan is still in reach of the Golden Boot title. The same goes for Miroslav Klose who will equal Ronaldo’s all-time record with 15 World Cup goals if he scores a goal. So plenty to play for here, and Dan and Richie at Expekt.com takes a look at the 3rd place match and gives you the best tips and odds.
Will this be the match of the tournament so far? Well, Argentina v Germany has class written all over it with players such as Messi, Tevez, Higuain, Oesil, Muller and Klose. Plus the rest, of course. According to many this could easily be the final but now we have to enjoy this clash of the giants among the last 8.
It would truly be like a saga if Maradona would lead his side to the title and he hopes for a goal from Messi but so far the little wizard have zero on his goal account and if you think that Messi will leave the pitch empty-handed again you get 1.45 in odds.
More tempting is maybe to bet on Higuain to score at anytime at 2.85 or back him at 6.00 if he becomes the first scorer in the match. Tevez pays 7.00 in odds if he scores first. Richie Sheridan likes 2.15 in odds on Germany to qualify and Joanthan Deeley is tempted by the over 2.5 goals odds at 2.02.
This could be an attacking, free-flowing affair with plenty of goals if any team scores an early goal, and if Germany can reach the height they had against Australia and England no opponent will have an easy ride. Spain is another red-hot title contender with David Villa scoring the goals that counts.
Considering Spain is still waiting for Torres to deliver, the team will fancy their chances against Paraguay, that has reached their first ever quarter-final in a World Cup. Paraguay has a solid defense and should give Spain problems and eight times the money on Paraguay to win could be a nice outsider-bet, even if the big money will come on Spain at 1.50 in odds.
Argentina currently pays 2.40 to win over Germany, but if you don’t like the odds why not challenge any of your facebook friends with your own odds and stake. Try our new facebook betting challenges here.
Post your correct score prediction between Germany vs Argentina and we’ll give away €5 to the first correct prediction.
Brazil is the favorite at 1.95 but the draw at 3.30 is something to consider maybe with Holland’s strong defense and form winning twelve of their last twelve competitive matches. Holland has also lost only one of their last twelve meetings with South American opponents.
In Group G Ivory Coast have to beat North Korea heavily and hope that Brazil beats Portugal to qualify. Drogba plays his last World Cup and North Korea looks for revange after 0-7 against Portugal. Portugal and Brazil clashes and Brazil will top the group with a draw and Portugal only needs one point to qualify.
Group H gives us Switzerland against Honduras and Chile versus Spain. Switzerland must better the Spanish result to qualify and Honduras must win and hope that Chile beats Spain. Chile only need one point to qualify and Spain will go through if they win and a draw might be enought.

Spain are risking to be knocked out of the World Cup already in the group stage after their shock defeat against Switzerland, but they should surely beat Honduras this Monday in the World Cup?
Chile vs Switzerland. Jonathan Deeley and Richie Sheridan both liked Chile when they beat Honduras and they shout about 2.45 on Chile to beat Switzerland as the best bet today.
Purtugal vs North Korea. Portugal have some well-known problems to score goals, but they have a good chance to break the dead-lock against North Korea. Maybe even Ronaldo can make his first international goal since Euro 2008?
