FIFA World Cup 2022 Round 2 Predictions

Qatar vs Senegal

Qatar ($6.2)

Senegal ($1.68)

Draw ($3.8)

Two sides that suffered defeats in their opening fixtures face off as hosts Qatar take on Senegal. Despite hosting an incredible occasion, Qatar came up well short against Ecuador in their opening fixture and they will need to improve here. Senegal meanwhile pushed the Netherlands all the way in their first game but couldn’t get over the line and they desperately need a win in this one. Qatar won’t make this easy, but Senegal should prevail here.

Betting tip: Senegal to win the match ($1.68) Bet @ BlueBet

Senegal to win 2-0

Ecuador vs Netherlands

Ecuador ($5.3)

Netherlands ($1.8)

Draw ($3.77)

Picking up two wins from the opening two games is the aim for every side and it is up for grabs here for both the Netherlands and Ecuador. Overcoming hosts Qatar in the opener should give Ecuador plenty of confidence moving forwards and they will have a good crack at the Dutch. Netherlands meanwhile dug deep to get past Senegal in their opener, and they could be dark horses in the competition. This could be tighter than the odds suggest but the Netherlands should get the job done.

Betting tip: Netherlands to win the match ($1.8) Bet @ BlueBet

Netherlands to win 2-1

England vs USA

England ($1.6)

USA ($6.4)

Draw ($4.33)

England will be looking to pick up consecutive wins as they take on the USA. The Three Lions battered Iran in their opener, and they look full of confidence under Gareth Southgate. USA meanwhile picked up a point against Wales in their first game and how they would love to upset the English in this one. This is another one that could be tight, but England should get the job done.

Betting tip: England to win the match ($1.6) Bet @ BlueBet

England to win 2-1

Iran vs Wales

Iran ($4)

Wales ($2.2)

Draw ($3.25)

Group B has a relatively open look to it and both Iran and Wales will fancy their chances of progression. Iran were blown away by England in their opener, but they do look to carry plenty of goal threat. Wales meanwhile impressed in the second half of their draw against the USA, and they will want to build upon that here. This should be a cagey affair, with Wales most likely to sneak the points.

Betting tip: Wales to win the match ($2.2) Bet @ BlueBet

Wales to win 1-0

Argentina vs Mexico

Argentina ($1.6)

Mexico ($6.75)

Draw ($4.5)

Argentina are still reeling from their humbling against Saudi Arabia last time out and how they’d love to put it right against Mexico. Both sides need a win, following disappointing opening results and there should be plenty of effort on display in this one. Mexico won’t roll over, but Argentina desperately need something, and they should pick up all three points here.

Betting tip: Argentina to win the match ($1.6) Bet @ BlueBet

Argentina to win 2-1

Saudi Arabia vs Poland

Saudi Arabia ($5.3)

Poland ($1.8)

Draw ($3.75)

Poland will be chasing their first win of the tournament, as they take on high flying Saudi Arabia. A missed penalty against Mexico last time out will be a moot point for Poland and they need a response. Saudi Arabia’s famous win over Argentina should hold them in good stead here and they are playing without fear. Poland should get the job done in this one though.

Betting tip: Poland to win the match ($1.8) Bet @ BlueBet

Poland to win 2-0

Australia vs Tunisia

Australia ($3.87)

Tunisia ($2.18)

Draw ($3.3)

Two teams that will be eager to put pressure on Denmark through the group stages face off as Australia take on Tunisia. The Socceroos started well against France but ultimately came up short and they know they can’t afford another loss here. Tunisia meanwhile impressed against Denmark and their defensive resilience could be useful in this one. This is a tight game, with the draw looking the most likely outcome.

Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.3) Bet @ BlueBet

1-1 Draw

France vs Denmark

France ($1.87)

Denmark ($4.8)

Draw ($3.6)

Defending champions France will be chasing a second win of the 2022 World Cup, as they take on Denmark. Les blues hammered Australia in their opener, and they look to be one of the main sides to beat once more. Denmark meanwhile are always a tough side to beat, and they really need a result now, after drawing with Tunisia in their opener. This will be tight, but France should prevail.

Betting tip: France to win the match ($1.87) Bet @ BlueBet

France to win 2-1

Costa Rica vs Japan

Costa Rica ($8.5)

Japan ($1.47)

Draw ($4.6)

Following their famous win over Germany, Japan take on Costa Rica. The Japanese rode their luck against Germany, but they should be full of confidence as they meet Costa Rica. Losing 7-0 to Spain was a chastening experience for Costa Rica and that could do some damage, which Japan should certainly exploit in this one.

Betting tip: Japan to win the match ($1.47) Bet @ BlueBet

Japan to win 2-0

Spain vs Germany

Spain ($2.43)

Germany ($2.98)

Draw ($3.76)

Two European giants do battle in Group E as Spain take on Germany. Spain got off to the best possible start, thrashing Costa Rica 7-0, while Germany lost to Japan in one of the shocks of the tournament so far. This should be a classic encounter, between two of the best sides in the competition and a draw could well be on the cards here.

Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.76) Bet @ BlueBet

1-1 Draw

Canada vs Croatia

Canada ($3.7)

Croatia ($2.15)

Draw ($3.41)

Croatia take on Canada, with both sides eager to rectify disappointing opening results. Croatia were held by Morocco and now look to have a job on their hands to qualify from the group. Canada meanwhile missed a penalty in their defeat to Belgium and how they would love to pressurise Croatia here. This should be a close game, with Croatia’s experience perhaps telling.

Betting tip: Croatia to win the match ($2.15) Bet @ BlueBet

Croatia to win 2-1

Belgium vs Morocco

Belgium ($2)

Morocco ($4.1)

Draw ($3.65)

Belgium will be looking to book their place in the last 16 as they take on Morocco. Edging past Canada wasn’t the perfect start for Belgium but they got the job done. Morocco meanwhile picked up a dogged point against Croatia and they will want a repeat showing here. This will be tight, with Belgium most likely to come out on top.

Betting tip: Belgium to win the match ($2) Bet @ BlueBet

Belgium to win 2-0

Serbia vs Cameroon

Serbia ($1.88)

Cameroon ($5.25)

Draw ($3.65)

Two teams that will be doing all they can to progress to the last 16 face off, as Serbia take on Cameroon. Both sides will see this as an opportunity in their relatively open group, with the exception of tournament favourites Brazil. Serbia start as the strong favourites for this one and they should just about sneak over the line.

Betting tip: Serbia to win the match ($1.88) Bet @ BlueBet

Serbia to win 2-0

Ghana vs South Korea

Ghana ($2.95)

South Korea ($2.75)

Draw ($3.15)

Two sides that are very evenly matched do battle, as Ghana take on South Korea. Not getting beat is often the priority at this stage in the competition for many sides and that will once again be the priority, with Portugal and Uruguay doing battle elsewhere in the group. This will be a tight and a draw looks very likely.

Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.15) Bet @ BlueBet

1-1 Draw

Portugal vs Uruguay

Portugal ($2.12)

Uruguay ($3.95)

Draw ($3.47)

Two teams looking to make an impact in Qatar do battle as Portugal take on Uruguay. Both sides have genuine aspirations as outsiders for the title and they will be eager to put down a marker in this one. Winning will be the priority for both sides and perhaps it is Portugal that look the most likely for all three points.

Betting tip: Portugal to win the match ($2.12) Bet @ BlueBet

Portugal to win 2-1

Brazil vs Switzerland

Brazil ($1.47)

Switzerland ($7.6)

Draw ($4.8)

Brazil will be looking to keep the momentum going in their campaign, as they take on Switzerland. Not winning the title since 2002 is something that is sure to trouble all Brazilians but how Switzerland would love to spoil the party. This will be a tight one, but Brazil should ultimately have too much class.

Betting tip: Brazil to win the match ($1.47) Bet @ BlueBet

Brazil to win 2-1
