World Cup Group H Betting Preview

POLAND

Building on their quarter-final appearance at Euro 2016, Poland qualified impressively for World Cup 2018, with Robert Lewandowski rattling home 16 goals in the process.  At 8/13 with Coral, it’s difficult to see past the Bayern Munich striker as Poland’s Top Goalscorer in Russia.

On the downside, they did concede 14 goals in 10 qualifiers, which was more than any other team in Europe that finished in the top two of a group and could spell problems the further they progress in the competition.  

Piotr Zielinski, Kamil Glik and fit-again Arkadiusz Milik provide the quality alongside Lewandowski, but the squad does lack strength in depth and is also starting to age.  Many of the squad also struggle for game time at their club sides in Europe’s major leagues.

Group H is perhaps the hardest group to call and Poland’s opening game with Senegal could prove to be the decisive one in their hopes of a place in the last 16.  Lose that and they will really be up against it.


COLOMBIA (40/1 to win World Cup 2018 with bet365*)

Given the quality at their disposal, World Cup 2014 quarter-finalists Colombia made surprisingly heavy weather of securing their place in Russia.

James Rodriguez, star of the show in Brazil four years ago, hasn’t really progressed as expected at club level, but remains the key player for Los Cafeteros and was their leading scorer in qualification.

Radamel Falcao missed the last World Cup through injury, but has fought his way back and could be the man to back at 5/2 with bet365* to be Colombia’s Top Goalscorer.

Goalkeeper David Ospina struggled in some of the latter qualifiers and the friendly with France and his fragile confidence has to be a concern and the decision not to select the talented, but controversial attacking midfielder Edwin Cardona for the final 23-man squad could prove to be a mistake.

There’s more than enough talent at their disposal to suggest that Colombia should qualify from Group H at a bare minimum, but they lack the consistency to back them to do so with any great confidence.


SENEGAL

Senegal return to the World Cup finals for only the second time, hoping to emulate their achievements in 2002, when they reached the quarter-finals.

That Senegal side included Aliou Cisse as captain and he is now coach of another talented squad who qualified impressively.

A physical and powerful team that will be a threat at set-pieces and have, in Sadio Mane, someone with the pace and finishing ability to trouble the best defences.  At the back, Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly is very highly-regarded and on the wanted list of some of Europe’s leading club sides.

In what looks a fairly even group, Senegal will fancy their chances of qualifying for the last 16 and at 6/5 with William Hill are worth a punt to do just that.


JAPAN (100/1 to win World Cup 2018 with Coral)

Japan qualified for their sixth consecutive World Cup finals, but it wasn’t totally convincing and led to the sacking of coach Vahid Halilhodzic to be replaced by the former technical director of the Japanese soccer association, Akira Nishino, just a couple of months before heading for Russia.

The squad features a number of familiar names, such as Shinji Kagawa, Keisuke HondaShinji Okazaki, but several have struggled for game time with their club sides over the past season.

World Cup Group H Betting Odds and Tips
Southampton’s Maya Yoshida is a reliable presence at the back, but defensively Japan look suspect at the highest level, which doesn’t bode well when coming up against strikers of the calibre of Radamel Falcao, Sadio Mane and Robert Lewandowski in their group games.

Nishino will have had precious little time with his players to implement any tactical changes he might want to bring in. so it looks a tall order for the Samurai Blue to progress beyond the group stage.
