TipMan Tips Bet Builder of the Day: Sunday’s World Cup Bet Builder Double

France vs Poland – 15:00

Over 4.5 France Corners

France 5 or more shots on target

France and Poland meet in the last 16, with current reigning champions the clear favourites for progression. France have looked good so far in their group games and the Tunisia game where they made 10 changes can be taken with a pinch of salt.

France, as expected, have looked a very exciting attacking force and have been scoring goals for fun, but they have been suspect defensively and you would always think Poland will get a few chances here, they will just hope they fall to Robert Lewandowski.

Poland have definitely not set the world on fire as they are very disciplined in their system and don’t really go out to attack teams, so this type of match is probably ideal for their system. You can expect France to pepper the Polish goal, they have already averaged 7.5 shots on target in recent games and they should maintain that average here.

Over 1.5 match goals have landed in 70% of both teams matches respectively and with France’s attacking threats and their ability to concede just as easily it looks a solid game for a few goals.

With France dominating and Poland more than likely playing very deep it’s going to encourage pressure and therefore should benefit our corner selection. France average 6.6 corners for per game and they should get 5 at a minimum here against Poland.

England vs Senegal – 19:00

Over 1.5 cards

Over 3.5 England corners

England meet Senegal in the last 16 in which looks to be a really good game on paper, yes England are the favourites, but Senegal is a decent team and have some very good players that will definitely ensure this game is competitive.

It’s another game I feel England will dominate the ball and Senegal will look to hit England on the counterattack, a good game plan as with their pace they can definitely cause England some problems.

England have averaged 5.4 corner per game in recent games and against this Senegal side who have conceded 3 or more corners in 70% of their matches you would think that 4 corners should be a solid selection.

Over 1.5 cards have been shown in 78% of both team’s games in recent times but with the magnitude of this game you can expect a few more here. Senegal have generally had 2 or more cards for in most of their recent matches and being the underdog here, hoping to disrupt England’s passing game you can see them committing a lot of fouls

Key stats & talking points

Marcus Rashford can go clear at the top of the golden boot race should he add to his tally of three against Senegal, while Harry Kane could also lead the assist charts by the end of the evening.

Over for Les Blues, a goal for Kylian Mbappe would also head clear at the top of the goalscoring charts with a goal against Poland, and an expectant France side will be expecting northing less than progression against the Poles.
