Betting Tip of the Day
Ecuador vs Senegal - Tuesday 29th 15:00
Over 4.5 cards ☑️
Ecuador and Senegal do battle here in Group A for a place in the knockout stages, a direct head-to-head for progression it seems as we expect Netherlands to comfortably dispatch of Qatar.
Both sides have looked dangerous at times and Ecuador have surprised a few people but they’re both very spikey teams and with everything on the line in this match up you can expect it to get very feisty.
Both teams average over 3 cards per game and obviously we are expecting a few more with the magnitude of today’s game, a very different type of match to qualifiers and friendlies leading up to this World Cup.
Ecuador have had 50% of their matches see 5 cards or more and with dangerous pacey attacking players on each side you’d expect a fair few tactical and cynical fouls here.
French Referee Clement Turpin averages 4 cards per game but again we think this will be out of his control as the pressure kicks in for both sides.
Iran vs USA - Tuesday 29th 19:00
Over 3.5 match cards
Over 3.5 USA corners
Again, another massive game and a head-to-head game to see who progresses to the knockout stages. Iran after being humiliated by England looked like they would never be in this position but after a great performance against Wales here they are.
The two teams average over 3 cards a game but similar to the Ecuador and Senegal game you can expect that to increase with so much at stake for both sides.
Spanish referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz renowned in Spain for his style of refereeing and issuing of cards. He’s racked up 4.68 cards per game in his last 280 matches and has shown 4 or more cards in 70% of his games.
USA racked up the corner count against England and coming into this they will be the favourites and the team expecting to go and make most of the running. They also need to win, Iran can draw this game and go through so the pressure is on the USA, they have to score a goal here and will have to attack an Iran side we know can be found out with a bit of quality. USA average 4.9 corners per game and have had 4 or more corners in 70% of their matches
