2018 World Cup Day Three betting tips – Saturday 16 June

We have a bumper crop of four World Cup matches on Saturday including Argentina v Iceland and France v Australia

After Russia v Saudi Arabia on Day One and then another three games on Day Two, we’ve got a feast of football on Saturday.

Four matches are being played on this day, so clear your diary and strap yourselves in for six hours of football which will hopefully go uninterrupted.

We kick off with France against Australia on Saturday morning, with Les Bleus boasting their usual crop of talent although there’s a doubt over Kylian Mbappe’s fitness.

Even so, we should expect Didier Deschamps’ side to overcome an Australian side who could find life difficult in Group C, with the Socceroos needing a play-off to reach the World Cup.

The best plot could be France winning and both teams to score, while Les Bleus can be put in a treble with Argentina and Croatia who can win their Group D games respectively against Iceland and Nigeria.

There are plenty of negatives against La Celeste who boast excellent attacking players but seem vulnerable defensively, although they should overcome an Iceland side who have flattered to deceive over the past couple of years.

Argentina should get out of the traps quickly in this game and push their European opponents on to the back foot, while we can expect Croatia to do something similar against Nigeria.

The Super Eagles looked a bit hopeless against England at Wembley, with the Croatians possessing an excellent playmaker in Luka Modric, while Mario Mandzukic can torment the defence.

As for Peru v Denmark, it’s possibly one to leave given we have a contrast of styles and the possibility that the game could go one of three ways.
