Betting Tip: @ Poland to win Group H @ 7/4 with bet365

Some World Cup groups look cut and dried, although that can’t be said about the final section which has placed Poland, Colombia, Senegal and Japan together.

Realistically, it wouldn’t be a huge shock whoever came through to the last sixteen, although it’s Colombia who head the market at a rather skinny-looking 5/4.

Los Cafeteros finished fourth in the CONMEBOL standings although there was a scarcity of goals throughout the campaign, with the Colombians averaging just over one goal per game.

Radamel Falcao missed the previous World Cup with injury and a lot of hope is pinned on the Monaco striker to deliver at the big tournament, with James Rodriguez also hoping to repeat his heroics of four years ago.

However, the Russian conditions might not suit Colombia as well as Brazil did and we’re prepared to back Poland to win this group instead.

They are the top-seeded team in Group H and have the best striker in the tournament thanks to the presence of Robert Lewandowski, with the Bayern Munich forward boasting 51 goals in 91 appearances for the national team.

Arkadiusz Milik is also a dangerous operator, with Piotr Zielinski, Grzegorz Krychowiak, Karol Linetty and Kamil Glik forming a strong spine to the team and there is plenty to like about a team that reached the quarter final stage of the Euros before losing on penalties to Portugal.

Senegal arrive with a lively chance of qualifying and are perhaps the African team with the greatest opportunity to go through, with much resting on their opening match against the Poles.

Aliou Cisse has done extremely well with a squad of players that largely play their club football in England and France, with Sadio Mane and Keita Balde among the bright lights.

Japan have a series of issues and a lack of firepower, although they did finish top of their group in Asian qualifying and are capable of getting a positive result against any of the other three teams.
