England and France made it through to the quarter-finals of the World Cup with stylish wins on Sunday, beating Senegal and Poland respectively as the business-end of the tournament clicks into gear.
The two sides have arguably been the most impressive in Qatar so far, but the pre-tournament favourites, Brazil, return to action on Monday against South Korea in what promises to be an intriguing clash between two contrasting styles while underdogs Morocco will hope to cause an upset against Croatia.
The biggest news of the day surrounds the fitness of Neymar, with the Brazilian talisman expected to return to the XI after suffering an injury against Serbia. His return could inspire the Brazilians to improved performances after a couple of struggles and will be among the favourites to score first against an admirable South Korea side.

Betting Tip of the Day
Japan v Croatia – Monday 5th December 15:00
Over 2.5 Match Cards ☑️
Over 7.5 Match Corners ☑️
Japan and Croatia meet in the last 16 of the World Cup. Japan finished top of Group E above Spain and Germany and beating both of the aforementioned giants but losing to Costa Rica. Japan had a record low of 18% possession in the 2-1 victory over Spain.
Croatia qualified 2nd in Group F behind Morocco and ahead of Belgium and Canada, and conceded just 1 goal in their 3 group games.
The 2 sides average 8.9 corners per game but with both sides pushing for a win and fancying their chances of progression here, we expect over 7.5 corners to land with ease.
The sides average 2 cards per game but with all to play for here and neither side wanting to lose, expect plenty of heavy challenges and cynical fouls preventing counter attacks. The game will be officiated by American referee Ismail Elfath who has dished out 11 cards in his 2 world cup games and 1 red card.
Brazil v Korea Republic - Monday 5th December 19:00
Over 2.5 Match Goals ☑️
Over 6.5 Match Corners ☑️
Brazil face South Korea in a favourable last 16 draw for them. They head into this knockout game a huge 1.25 odds on favourite. South Korea do attack well though, and fast, scoring twice in their previous 2 group games and beating Portugal 2-1 to seal qualification.
The 2 sides have average 3 goals per game, but Brazil are creating and conceding plenty of chances. South Korea have to fight here to stay in the competition and will fight for all 90 minutes.
Brazil rested many key players in their 1-0 late defeat to Cameroon and we can expect most to come back into the starting 11 and will be fighting for a place in the Quarter-Final team, should they progress. They will be facing a tired and leggy South Korea who beat Portugal to progress just 72 hours prior.
The sides average 10.5 corners and over 6.5 offers great value here and should land with ease. We expect Brazil will go close to 7 corners alone. South Korea do play on the counterattack and may force a few corners themselves. Also, if the game is close and Brazil have a narrow lead, or if South Korea are still in the tie, we can expect plenty of clock running in the corner

World Cup Betting Offers for Existing Customers
One of the most popular offer types is the boosted odds offer. As well as giving you great value on a bet - you get some of the biggest odds available on the market - it benefits both new and existing customers through placing a bet on a selection, and accessing bigger odds than are elsewhere on the market.
Early payout offers have grown dramatically over the past couple of seasons, so don’t be surprised to see a few more of these around during the World Cup. With these offers, if your team goes ahead, usually by two goals, then you are given an early payout.
Whatever happens during the rest of the match, you have a winner, even if your team loses, a great way to give yourself an extra bit of cover when betting on teams to win in Qatar.
Which are the best World Cup betting offers?
The most common betting offer is known as ‘Bet and Get’, which usually involves placing a qualifying bet in order to unlock your free bets. For example, in order to get a £20 free bet, you will need to deposit and stake £10 at odds of 1/2 or greater.
Another type of promotion is the enhanced odds, which offer punters better odds on a sports event than is typically available, so 1/2 odds become 20/1. The very best enhanced odds offers for the World Cup will appear here on this page during the tournament.
The new customers will indeed be able to benefit from several offers before or during the World Cup, but this doesn’t mean that the existing customers are neglected.
Many bookmakers will run loyalty programmes and weekly free bets clubs, which will provide their customers with free bets on a weekly or even daily basis.
