New Zealand - Slovakia, NO BET


I'm not sure about this one. New Zealand will park the bus in front the goal and will try to frustrate Slovakians. Best they have is few players from English Championship, main threats will be set pieces.

Slovakia is a kind of mystery for me, but fell they're far below Italy and Paraguay. If they don't score in the first 20 minutes, could have a plenty of problems. Also, game will be played on 1500m above the sea level and will be hard to breath and keep the pace.

I don't like to bet on under, but 2.20 on under 2 looks really tempting. Also, wouldn't exclude a possibility of a draw, 0-0 for example. Will decide later and post it.


Portugal - Ivory Coast, Portugal @ 2.30 (Expekt) 0-0 LOST 


Portugal is very good side. Look at their first eleven. Results from qualifications usually are not a good indicator. I predict a good tournament for them and think they can even eliminate Spain in a possible 1/16 match.

Ivory Coast is, in my opinion, most exaggerated selection in SA. Drogba will probably start the game, although he’s far from be fit, since this is a game for 2nd place in the group. They have Sven Goran Eriksson on the bench and I almost have no doubt they won’t pass the group.

I would like to see better odds (based on IC exaggeration), but 2.30 is totally acceptable.


Brazil - DPR Korea, Korea +1ah first half @ 1.925 (bet365) 0-0 ht WON


I already wrote my opinion about Brazil. My main favorites for a trophy. Enough.

The truth about Korea is actually nobody knows anything about their potential (which surely isn’t very big). I’ve read in some press, their best player (no way to remember his name) left the country before 5-6 years, came to Serbia and was playing for Bezanija (club who dropped in the second division)! Only sure thing about them is they all would die for the country (maybe a bet on red card could be a nice choice).

It’s first and the easiest game for Brazil and I can’t see a single reason to push to their limits and waste energy. Goals against Korea will hardly be decisive (in case of same points for Br.,Por. and Iv.Coast,goals against Korea would be erased). On the other side, I can see a fanatical fight from Koreans and think they can resist first half.


That's it for today. Good luck people, see you tomorrow.
