The quarter-finals kick-off on Friday with two mouth-watering ties, with World Cup favourites Brazil taking on Croatia before Netherlands and Argentina come face-to-face in the evening game.
After two games without any matches, fans are itching to get back into the swing of things and by the end of the day could have a dream semi-final tie between South American giants Brazil and Argentina, both hoping to end long waits for World Cup glory.
That’s not to ignore the chances of the other two nations either, both of whom have significant World Cup pedigree.
Croatia were runners-up in 2018 but it currently looks like one tournament too far having scraped past Japan on penalties, while Netherlands - five times quarter-finalists and runners-up in 2010 - have flattered to deceive so far in the tournament despite coasting to this stage.
The two South American sides head into the games as favourites, but it would be no surprise to see at least one game go to extra-time - and who would bet against both doing so?

Croatia Vs Brazil - Friday 9th
Brazil 5 or more shots on target
Over 3.5 Brazil corners
Thiago Silva over 70 match passes
Brazil and Croatia go head-to-head in the quarter final with the Brazilian side looking very strong and Croatia have stumbled their way through so far without any standout performances.
Brazil the obvious favourites and will be expected to dominate the ball, Thiago silva has averaged 77 passes per game in this World Cup and with them being the possession team you can expect him to rack them up again here.
Brazil average 7 shots on target per match this World Cup and with the attacking players at their disposal against an ageing Croatia side who will likely set up defensive it’s hard to not see them testing the keeper on numerous occasions.
Brazil have again averaged 7 corners earned per match this World Cup and with the same reasons as the match shots it’s hard to see them not getting a few corners here. Exciting wide players and players from midfield who arrive in the box and shoot from distance they should get a minimum of 4 corners here.
Netherlands Vs Argentina - Friday 9th 15:00
Over 2.5 match cards
Over 2.5 Netherlands corners
Over 2.5 Argentina corners
Netherlands and Argentina do battle in the first quarter final of the 2022 World Cup and it’s a match between two of the big guns. Argentina are slight favourites, but I do feel this game can go either way which makes for a great game.
Both teams average match cards is just over 2 per game but now at the quarter final stages tensions rise and the pressure is increased. Spanish referee Mr Lahoz renowned in Spain for issuing cards averaged 4.7 cards per game.
Both teams have been strong on the corners this competition with a combined match total of 9.2 and both teams averaging over 4 each per game. Both sides have definitely looked vulnerable defensively which wasn’t expected coming into this and with the attacking players on show you can expect both teams to create plenty of chances here.

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.
