Germany, Portugal and Belgium all to win at 6/1
Coral are offering fantastically enhanced odds on trio European heavyweights Germany, Portugal and Belgium all to win their final World Cup group games against the USA, Ghana and South Korea respectively at 6/1.
USA v Germany
This head-to-head is much-anticipated for many reasons, including the fact that four of the USA’s squad, and boss Jurgen Klinsmann, are German-born.
The nations have even played each other in two World Cups before, with the Europeans winning both to nil, in 1998 and 2002. They are priced at 11/5 to do so again.
Germany (odds-on favourites at 8/11 for victory) happen to have new joint-record World Cup scorer Miroslav Klose and hat-trick hero Thomas Muller, against Portugal, in their ranks. The former Bayern Munich teammates are both evens to net again individually anytime.
Portugal v Ghana
These two sides have never faced each other before, but it is Portugal who are favourites to win this match at 5/4.
Both Ghana and the Europeans have gained just one point from Group G. Portugal are three points and five goals behind second-placed USA, and that is the type of challenge that will only spur on Cristiano Ronaldo to qualify (8/1).
The Real Madrid superstar forward is priced at 3/1 to bag a brace or better, and 12/1 to hit a hat-trick.
South Korea v Belgium
Odds-on favourites Belgium (8/11) tackle South Korea in this final Group H encounter, with the former still yet to secure top spot – despite being three points and one goal ahead of second-placed Algeria.
These sides have faced each other three times before, including twice at World Cups – in 1990 and 1998. The Red Devils are undefeated in all their meetings, winning two of them. Most recently, they beat South Korea 2-1 in 1999, and that scoreline is priced at 15/2 again.
