Morocco vs Croatia
I really think Croatia will have their work cut out today to beat Morocco, the Croats have an some very experienced players who finished runners up in Russia 4 years ago and are back again this time, players such as Modric, Perisic, Vida, Brozovic and Kramaric all played and are players who are also the wrong side of 30. I would worry that the speed of the game may catch Croatia out and the younger players coming off the bench are not of the same standard. The North Africans have some talent and experience of their own namely Boufal, Ziyech, Saiss, Amrabat, Hakimi and En-Nesyri but by contrast all with the exception of centre half Saiss are the right side of 30. Morrocco are a solid side and +0.5 is a good line and with Belgium to come neither side can afford to lose this and we may see a somewhat cagey game so also adding the under 2.25 goals too.

Germany vs Japan
I am betting over 3 goals in what should be a fun game, I think Japan will fancy their chances more against Germany than Spain and while this should lead to a more open game this could also be their downfall. Germany are full of attacking talents and scoring 36 games in qualification and you can argue that Japan is the same in terms of where their strengths and weaknesses are on the pitch. They have players playing in some of Europe’s leading leagues and those players are not only at good clubs but they are also important players for their team too, the exceptional Kamada is an attacking midfielder at Eintracht Frankfurt, Minamino of Monaco and the wonder kid Mitoma from brighton too. I think we will see a German win but i would rather bet the over goals in what should be a very entertaining game where both sides are betting attacking than defending.

Belgium vs Canada
I am betting Belgium -1 and over 2.75 goals too, Belgium should have far too much for Canada who are making their first appearance since Mexico 86, Belgium are a side full of talented experienced players with 6 players capped over 100 times so they will know that they will need to make a good start in these tournaments so will be focused on getting the win with more difficult games to come. Canada done well defensively in the qualifiers however they won’t have met anything with the capability of Belgium and their fire power and with Kevin De Bruyne pulling the strings I think we will see and easy Belgium victory so betting -1 and over 2.75 goals scored.
