Full list of World Cup Quarter Final Games, Odds, And Predictions
The quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar are here and as we wait for these exciting matches to being, we have prepared a short preview for each game, along with the odds and predictions for them.
QF1: Croatia vs Brazil [Friday, 9th December 2022 3:00pm(GMT)]
The first match to be played in quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup is a duel between Brazil and Croatia. First, let’s take a closer look at the odds for this match:
Brazil vs Croatia Odds
- Brazil: 2/5 (1.40)
- Draw: 4/1 (5.00)
- Croatia: 7/1 (8.00)
Brazil vs Croatia Prediction
It is pretty evident from the odds that Brazil is the absolute favourite in this match. However, it’s important to remember that Croatia made it all the way to the final in Russia four years ago and that they are a tough team to beat, with plenty of experienced players who know how to play to get results.
That being said, Croatia struggled against Japan in the last round and only managed to get through after penalties. Meanwhile, Brazil was convincing against South Korea and once again showed why they are the main favourite to win the title in Qatar. So, with all due respect to Croatia, we can’t see Brazil failing to win this match.
QF2: Netherlands vs Argentina [Friday, 9th December 2022 7:00pm(GMT)]
Probably one of the closest matchups in the quarter finals is the Netherlands vs Argentina duel and we can see this being a very exciting game. So, let’s check out the odds for this match first:
Netherlands vs Argentina Odds
- Netherlands: 5/2 (3.50)
- Draw: 21/10 (3.10)
- Argentina: 5/4 (2.25)
Netherlands vs Argentina Prediction
As we said, this can be a very close game and the odds reflect that. Yes, Argentina is the favourite to win, but with pretty good odds. Of course, Netherlands is a serious team and one of the most successful teams in World Cup history despite their failure to win the trophy.
Netherlands also reached this stage without losing a game – they only failed to beat Ecuador in group stages. Meanwhile, Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia in the first round, but they were very impressive ever since. We can see this game ending in a draw and being decided in overtime or even penalties, where we expect Argentina to go through.
QF3: Morocco vs Portugal [Saturday, 10th December 2022 3:00pm(GMT)]
To the surprise of many, Morocco will play in their first-ever World Cup quarter finals in Qatar and their rival is Portugal. Here are the odds for this match:
Morocco vs Portugal Odds
- Morocco: 5/1 (6.00)
- Draw: 11/4 (3.75)
- Portugal: 4/6 (1.67)
Morocco vs Portugal Prediction
For the first time in their history, Morocco will play in the World Cup quarter finals and they managed to get here by topping their group with Croatia and Belgium and then eliminating Spain on penalties in the Round of 16.
Meanwhile, Portugal was in great form in this World Cup and it all culminated in the previous stage where they beat Switzerland 6-1. So, while we really like this Morocco team and we wouldn’t be too surprised if they cause another upset, we have to go with Portugal in this match after that impressive showing in Round of 16.
QF4: England vs France [Saturday, 10th December 2022 7:00pm(GMT)]
Certainly the derby of the quarter finals and the most interesting matchup is the one between England and France. So, here’s a closer look at the odds first:
England vs France Odds
- England: 2/1 (3.00)
- Draw: 21/10 (3.10)
- France: 7/5 (2.40)
England vs France Prediction
As it was projected before the start of the tournament, we will see a duel between England and France in the quarter finals, which clearly means that both teams have done as expected so far and avoided any surprises.
In fact, it’s safe to say that both teams have impressed equally so far, reaching this stage after some convincing wins in group stages and especially in the Round of 16. So, it would hardly be unexpected to see a draw in this game, even though France are slight favorites. Then, it’s anyone’s game, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see France go through on penalties.
