Portugal hope to secure their top group spot as Brazil take on Cameroon.
The World Cup enters its 13th day as teams from Groups G and H play their last games in the group stage.
As we prepare for an exciting Friday, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming games.
Let’s check out three betting tips for the group stage’s 13th matchday.
Don’t expect goals when Portugal meet South Korea
Portugal hope to claim Group H’s top spot to avoid the possibility of meeting Brazil in the next round.
Having won their first two games in the tournament, Cristiano Ronaldo and co are the favourites to beat South Korea.
However, we expect them to approach the game with a conservative strategy.
Their opponents, on the other hand, need to win to keep their qualification hopes alive. But Portugal’s defensive form convinces us that they will repulse most of the Asian side’s attacks.
Goals likely on both sides when Ghana take on Uruguay
Ghana hope to avenge their bitter World Cup 2010 setback against Uruguay on Friday.
Luis Suarez and co are desperate to keep their qualification hopes alive by beating the African giants.
Given their impressive quality up front, Uruguay will most likely find enough chances to score in the upcoming game.
However, Ghana’s current attacking form convinces us that they will be able to hurt their opponents on the counter-attacks.
Don’t expect an open game when Serbia face Switzerland
Switzerland will only need a draw to secure their qualification to the knockout stage on Friday.
In their final group-stage game, the Swiss will take on Serbia, who sit at the bottom of the Group G table with one point.
The Serbs will enter the game with the clear objective of winning it. However, Switzerland’s recent defensive performances suggest their opponents will have a hard time scoring against them.
On the other hand, Switzerland themselves will most likely avoid taking risks as they only need a point to reach the last-16 round.
