On the fourth day of the World Cup in Qatar There are four matches scheduled starting at 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. After the first four rounds from group A to D, it will be the turn of groups E and F on November 23rd. The first could be defined as a tough one as besides the Reds and Germany, there are Japan and Costa Rica.
Even the second group doesn't have real cushion teams made up of Belgium and Croatia, the favorites, along with Morocco and Canada. The four European teams should be favored to advance, but there could be surprises in these two groups.
Top 3 World Bookmakers in Qatar 2023
Group F Morocco-Croatia, balance and few goals
The match scheduled for 11:00 Canadian time will be between Morocco, a team that eliminated DRC in the African qualifications and secured their second consecutive World Cup appearance after Russia 2018. The opponent is one of the best, namely Croatia, which won against Russia in the European group, securing direct qualification to the competition. It could be a very balanced match, as the best betting sites put the 1 at 4.33, the X at 3.38, and the 2 at 2.18. Under 2.5 is preferred at 1.62, while Over 2.5 is chosen for odds greater than 2.50.
It could be a tactical game since even the No Goal bet is at 1.75, compared to the Goal at 2.08. In summary, a draw with few goals could also happen, considering that Morocco has improved in quality with Hakimi, Ziyech, among others.
Group E Germany-Japan, German favourites
The first match of Group E at 2pm will see Germany without Werner, and Japan who have increased their solidity and presence of players in Europe over the past four years. Compared to the previous match, the Germans seem to be heavily favored with an 1 at 1.50, X at nearly five times the stake, and 2 at 8.03. However, it should not be assumed that a victory for the Germans is so straightforward, given their recent difficulties in the Nations League.
Japan, on the other hand, will be able to count on three players from Eintracht Frankfurt and Minamino from Monaco. Many goals are expected in this case, as the Over 2.5 is at 1.75, while the Under is at 2.32. It is uncertain whether both will score with the Goal at 1.87 and the No Goal at 1.95. Also, the first goal by Germany is at 1.38.
Group E Spain-Costa Rica, recommended Over 2.5
Three hours later at 5pm, it will be the turn of the other favorite of the group and also for the final victory, namely Spain. The Red Fury will make their debut against Costa Rica of Navas. Compared to four years ago, the North Americans have lost a lot of quality. At the same time, Canada knows very well how difficult they are to face. Luis Enrique has also shown his revolutionary method in this tournament by excluding important players and leaving space for those who are in form at the moment.
Backing Spain would only yield a 1.19 return, the draw at 8.40, and betting on Costa Rica would result in a return of 25.00. It is recommended to bet on Over 2.5 goals at 1.69 and Under 3.5 goals at 1.53. Betting on No Goal is also advisable at 1.41, as it is unlikely that Costa Rica will score against Spain.
Group F Belgium-Canada, game with many goals
The fourth day of the World Cup in Qatar ends at 8 pm, with Belgium, the perpetual underachiever in international tournaments, facing Canada, who have not appeared in the World Cup since 1986 in Mexico. Courtois and his teammates seem to be favored, but Belgium has always shown vulnerability even in matches against weaker teams. This will be the last chance for a golden generation that is reaching its final chapter.
Canada will be able to count on the two stars Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David from Lille. In this case, Belgium is also favored with 1 at 1.51, X at 4.33, and 2 at 6.25. Under 3.5 at 1.45. Given the practically identical Goal No Goal at 1.90, it is recommended to bet on first goal Belgium at 1.42.
