France and Argentina will kick off the knockout stages of the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Saturday, when two of the favourites for the title meet in Kazan, Russia.

Les Bleus went unbeaten in Group C, while La Albiceleste narrowly escaped from Group D.

Neither side has played up to its full potential, but France have been the better team.

Here’s a look ahead at the contest:

Date: Saturday, June 30

Time: 5 p.m. local time/3 p.m. BST/10 a.m. ET

Venue: Kazan Arena, Kazan

TV Info/Live Stream: Fox (U.S.), BBC (UK)

Team News

According to WhoScored.com, Samuel Umtiti is the only doubt on the French side, but he’s expected to be fit in time for the match.

Hugo Lloris, Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba are all likely to return to the starting XI after the side was rotated against Denmark.

Pogba, Blaise Matuidi and Corentin Tolisso are one booking shy of a suspension if France reach the quarter-finals.

Argentina have no injury issues or suspensions, but Ever Banega, Gabriel Mercado, Javier Mascherano, Lionel Messi, Marcos Acuna and Nicolas Otamendi are all one booking away from missing the next match.

Which Version of France Will Show Up?

Les Bleus arguably have more talent than any team in the tournament, with elite players in just about every position.

A midfield of Pogba and N’Golo Kante has the potential to dominate any side they face, and up front, they can afford to leave the likes of Ousmane Dembele and Thomas Lemar on the bench―they are that stacked.

However, manager Didier Deschamps can’t settle on a starting XI or even a formation, and he hasn’t stopped tinkering throughout the tournament. He has even used Matuidi―a holding midfielder―as a left-winger, and he is expected to do so again in the match against Argentina.

It’s fair to say he isn’t making any new fans with his approach:

Argentina have had similar issues but did appear to stumble on a system that works in their last outing, with Banega bringing some much-needed stability to the midfield in the win over Nigeria on Tuesday.

Iceland could take a major step towards qualification for the knockout stages of the 2018 FIFA World Cup with a win over Nigeria on Friday.

The Super Eagles came into the tournament in dreadful form and didn’t improve in their opener, losing 2-0 against Croatia. Iceland, meanwhile, held Group D favourites Argentina to a draw to give themselves a great chance for qualification.
Here’s a look a head at the contest.

Date: Friday, June 22
Start Time: 6 p.m. local time/4 p.m. BST/11 a.m. ET
Venue: Volgograd Arena, Volgograd, Russia
TV Info/Live Stream: BBC (UK)/Fox (U.S.)

According to WhoScored.com, both teams will start the match at full health and with no suspensions. That means new Brighton & Hove Albion defender Leon Balogun is likely to start again for Nigeria, and there should be no surprises for Iceland after their great showing against Argentina. Can Iceland Dictate Play Against Nigeria?
The Super Eagles lost four of their last five matches heading into the World Cup, so it shouldn’t have come as a surprise to see them struggle against Croatia.
The harsh truth is Nigeria simply aren’t that good―they have bags of young talent, but key youngsters such as Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho need more time to develop.

The 2018 World Cup came a little too soon for the Super Eagles, but they will be a force to be reckoned with in the near future.

Iceland, on the other hand, are in the midst of a golden age for the national team, and they have relished the role of underdogs for years and do a great job of countering from a solid organisation.

But they’re starting to shed the label of underdog, as the World Cup’s official Twitter account pointed out:

Nigeria are at their best in open space, and they will likely try to play for those openings, employing a lower defensive line. It’s something Iceland are generally not used to seeing, and the opposite of what they faced against Argentina.

Iceland’s qualification will likely depend on the result of their final group match against Croatia, but the Vatreni’s tactics could come down to how their future opponents look against Nigeria. Like the Super Eagles, Croatia have a ton of athleticism―they will not be afraid to sit back and counter if that’s something the island nation struggles with.

Brazil and Costa Rica open the Friday slate of World Cup group stage matches as they battle in Group E, with both seeking their first win of the tournament. Brazil is coming off a 1-1 draw with Switzerland in the opener, while Costa Rica fell 1-0 to Serbia on a free-kick goal.

Both teams trail Serbia in the group, with Brazil behind by two points. It feels like a potential must-win for Brazil, and it expects to pick up three points here against a Costa Rica team that didn’t create much in attack in the opener.

Costa Rica appear to be in good health entering the game, but for Brazil, all eyes will be on Neymar. The Brazilian superstar was roughed up in the opener, fouled 10 times, and he left training early on Tuesday limping. But, he returned to training on Wednesday and should be good to go.

Texas Tech vs Florida

College World Series 2018: Texas Tech vs Florida Thursday Bracket Predictions, Scheduled Start Times,Florida vs. Texas Tech in NCAA Tournament: Time, TV

The Texas Tech Red Raiders are one game away from elimination in the 2018 College World Series, setting the stage for Thursday’s action in Omaha, Nebraska.

The Arkansas Razorbacks defeated Texas Tech on Wednesday, thus earning themselves a berth in the semifinals. Also as a result, Texas Tech will match up against the defending national champion Florida Gators, having already registered a win over Florida in the College World Series.

The Gators and Red Raiders will have their eyes on the semifinals when they hit the diamond Thursday night.

Thursday Schedule

Florida vs. Texas Tech, 8 p.m. ET (ESPNU)

Full bracket is available on NCAA.com.

Thursday Preview

Florida hasn’t announced its starter for Thursday, but Gators Country’s Nick de la Torre speculated Tuesday that Jack Leftwich will get the nod.

With their season on the line, the Gators would ideally be able to use first-round draft pick Brady Singer.

However, the junior right-hander went 6.1 innings in the team’s defeat to the Red Raiders, so expecting him to start four days later would be risky. Coach Kevin O’Sullivan also has to keep an eye on the rest of the College World Series, so he needs to leave some options open for a prospective semifinals series.

Leftwich has made 23 appearances, 11 of which were starts, so far this year. In 75 innings, he has a 4.32 ERA and 79 strikeouts to 24 walks. His last appearance came in the 3-2 win over the Auburn Tigers on June 11 that sent Florida into the College World Series.

The Gators’ pitching will be difficult for the Red Raiders to overcome. The Gators are 19th in ERA (3.42) and ninth in WHIP (1.21) as a team. As long as Leftwich can deliver five or six strong innings, which he did against Auburn, Florida has the bullpen depth to see the win through.

But Texas Tech has the offense to knock Leftwich out of the game early.

The Red Raiders entered Wednesday fifth in batting average (.311), second in slugging percentage (.510) and 11th in home runs per game (1.30).

Getting Grant Little and Zach Rheams back to their best at the plate will be one key for Texas Tech. Prior to Wednesday’s loss, Little was slugging .662 with 12 home runs and 74 RBI, while Rheams is the team leader in slugging percentage (.736) and home runs (17).

Together, they combined to go 0-for-7 against Arkansas, which is a big reason the Red Raiders combined for just six hits. Compare that to the win over Florida, when Little and Rheams each drove in a run and Little went 3-for-3 at the plate.

Texas Tech’s five runs against Singer are somewhat deceiving since three of them were unearned. It was an uncharacteristically poor outing from Singer, and the Red Raiders may not have the same kind of luck once again.

Pressure is on the South Americans, who are expected to see major lineup changes after a draw to Iceland Maradona, his country’s 1986 World Cup-winning captain, remarked this week that “Ramos is no superstar, the real superstar defender is Diego Godin” when comparing Spain’s serial-winner Ramos with the Uruguay captain.

Ramos was asked what he made of Maradona’s comments after Spain’s 1-0 World Cup Group B win over Iran, and chose to praise Messi, who has led Barcelona to numerous wins over Real Madrid.

“I respect Maradona because he is an all-time great; I think he was a star.

“But I’ll also tell you that Argentine football knows Maradona is light years behind their number one player, which is Messi,” Ramos said.

Messi, who lost the last World Cup final to Germany as captain of Argentina, missed a penalty in his side’s 1-1 draw with Iceland.

He is under pressure to propel his side to victory over Group D leaders Croatia on Thursday.

Argentina faces Croatia on Thursday in Nizhny Novgorod with first place in Group D up for grabs ahead of Iceland and Nigeria on Friday. It’s an early, massive match at the World Cup. Croatia is coming off a 2-0 win over Nigeria while Argentina couldn’t find its scoring boots in a 1-1 draw with Iceland.

Expect Croatia to stick with a similar lineup to the first match, though it may field a more defensive-oriented lineup with with Mateo Kovacic in the middle. As for Argentina, the squad should look much different. In training, Jorge Sampaoli has replaced Angel Di Maria with Cristian Pavon, Marcos Acuna could join the lineup and it looks like the team won’t go with a defensive midfield duo. It could be Enzo Perez or Maxi Meza to add a tad more balance in the midfield.

NBA Draft 2018

NBA Draft 2018: Lakers reportedly acquire 39th pick from 76ers LUKA Doncic is about to become an NBA player, though he’s unlike the other top prospects

And he might just be the most accomplished and intriguing player in this class. After capping his brilliant stay in Spain with another title, the Slovenian guard heads the list of international players expected to be selected on Thursday, a teenager whose resume is already more complete than even some of the most season veterans.

“He may be the most accomplished European teenager to ever come into the draft,” ESPN draft analyst Jay Bilas said.

“You know, there’s very little that is unknown about him. He’s not some workout wonder that people are projecting. He’s accomplished things, and he has been seen in 5-on-5 against high-level competition for a number of years.

“He’s played professional basketball since he was 13.”

*Odds provided by TAB.com.au

Doncic couldn’t join Deandre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III and the other headliners in New York on Wednesday because he was en route from Spain after finishing off his dream season by helping Real Madrid win its ACB league championship Tuesday.

The 6-foot-7 guard made a 3-pointer off one leg with the shot clock running down and Real Madrid clinging to a three-point lead, and his team held on to win the series in four games and allow him to get to Barclays Center in time for Thursday’s festivities, rather than stay behind for a Game 5.

He had already been the MVP of both the Euroleague season and its Final Four, the youngest player ever to win both honors, as Real Madrid won that title as well.

“I’m speechless,” he told the team’s website after Tuesday’s victory. “It has been the season of my life. It’s incredible.”

The Phoenix Suns have the No.1 pick and are widely expected to draft Arizona center Ayton, even though new coach Igor Kokoskov coached Doncic last summer on the Slovenian national team that won the nation’s first EuroBasket gold medal.

Then it’s Sacramento, Atlanta, Memphis and Dallas, and any of them could consider a player who’s only 19 but has been playing against some of the toughest competition outside the NBA for years.

While there may always be some skepticism of European players because Darko Milicic bombed so badly after being taken right behind LeBron James and ahead of Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade 15 years ago, it would be a surprise if Doncic failed after all he’s already done.

“He should easily transition to the league really well,” Miami guard Lonnie Walker IV said. “I mean, look at what he’s doing in the Euroleague. You’ve got to respect what he’s doing. You can’t say he’s not good and he’s the MVP and everything of that spot.

“So pay respect where it’s due. He’s a great player. All you can say is tell him to continue to work hard and prove everyone that’s doubting him wrong.”

Even with Ayton, a native of the Bahamas, and Doncic at the top of the list of international candidates, the strength of this draft is at the college level.

Power programs such as Duke (Bagley and Wendell Carter Jr.), Michigan State (Jaren Jackson Jr. and Miles Bridges), national champion Villanova (Mikal Bridges and Donte DiVincenzo) and Kentucky (Kevin Knox and Shai Gilgeous- Alexander) could have multiple players taken in the top 10-15 selections of the two-round draft, and teams looking for point guards could choose between freshmen Trae Young of Oklahoma and Collin Sexton of Alabama.

They could give the NBA a second straight strong rookie class, after Utah’s Donovan Mitchell, Boston’s Jayson Tatum and 2016 No.1 pick Ben Simmons of Philadelphia all helped their teams advance to at least the second round of the postseason.

“I think it’s a transformational class,” Missouri’s Michael Porter Jr. said. “I think we’ve got a lot of different kinds of players: Deandre, Marvin, the big dudes who are special, and then me along with a couple other wings who can do a lot of different things, and then point guard, Trae, Collin Sexton, and then I heard that Luka dude – I ain’t seen much on him but I heard he’s special, too. So I think we’re a great draft, one of the best in a while.”

France vs. Peru World Cup matchup analysis

Les Bleus are unbeaten in six matches across all competitions but face a desperate Peruvian side that faces elimination from the 2018 FIFA World Cup after falling 1-0 to Denmark as +240 underdogs in their group-stage opener last weekend.

France will likely punch their ticket to the knockout stage with a victory Thursday, but the two-time World Cup finalists have been less than dominant in recent outings. Les Bleus needed an own goal by Australia’s Aziz Behich in the dying minutes to get a narrow 2-1 victory as -450 chalk in their tournament opener.

That squad also needed a late goal to earn a 1-1 draw with a youthful squad from the United States in their final pre-tournament friendly June 9. While France has compiled a sturdy 9-3-1 win-draw-loss record across all competitions since June 2017, they have struggled in clashes with South American squads in recent years, producing a 1-4-4 win-draw-loss record in their past nine, including draws with Ecuador and Uruguay in World Cup action.

Peru enters Thursday’s contest desperate to avoid a loss and a swift exit from Russia 2018. Los Incas were denied their first win in World Cup action since 1978 in Saturday’s clash with Denmark, despite outshooting and out-possessing the Danes.

While the Peruvians take on France as massive underdogs following their first defeat in 16 outings across all competitions, they cannot be underestimated. Los Incas have kept clean sheets in six of eight overall outings, including impressive victories in pre-tournament friendlies with rising European powers Croatia and Iceland.

Australia vs. Denmark

World Cup 2018: Australia vs. Denmark odds, expert picks, and insider predictions

Denmark looks to qualify for the Round of 16 for the first time since 2002 when it faces Australia at 8:00 a.m. ET Thursday at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The Danes edged Peru 1-0 in their opener, good for three points. That ties them with France in Group C. The Aussies, meanwhile, fell 2-1 in their first 2018 World Cup match. Denmark is posted at -105 for Thursday’s tilt, meaning you would need to bet $105 to win $100 on a Denmark win. Australia is at +450 (risk $100 to win $450), while a draw is +265. The over-under on total goals scored in this World Cup 2018 game is two.

Before you make your 2018 World Cup picks, you need to see what European football expert David Sumpter has to say. Sumpter is an applied mathematician who wrote Soccermatics, the book that shows how math works inside the game. Together with experienced analysts, Sumpter developed the powerful Soccerbot model.

The Soccerbot reads all team performance data, calculates key metrics and predicts upcoming matches. In the nearly three seasons since it was born, the Soccerbot is up an impressive 1,800 percent on bookmakers’ closing odds. The Soccerbot already called Brazil-Switzerland playing to a draw (+360), Argentina-Iceland ending in a draw (+385) and Iran upsetting Morocco (+275), just to name a few.

Now, Sumpter’s model has examined Denmark-Australia and generated money-line and over-under World Cup picks.

We can tell you he’s leaning over, but his more confident pick is on the money line. He’s only sharing it over at SportsLine.

Sumpter knows Denmark avoided a potential calamity against Peru on Saturday. The Danes were outshot 17-10 and Peru had a penalty kick attempt sail high. Kasper Schmeichel had an impressive game in goal and Christian Eriksen found Yussuf Poulsen for the game’s lone score in the 59th minute.

Regardless of how pretty the win was, it extended Denmark’s unbeaten streak to 17 games. Denmark could clinch a spot in the 2018 World Cup knockout stage, assuming France downs Peru.

FIFA ranks Denmark No. 12 in the world, while Australia is No. 36. The Socceroos will look to avoid a second straight World Cup without a point tallied.

Australia, though, showed it belonged simply by hanging with France. The Aussies held possession for 49 percent of the time, losing on a goal in the 81st minute. If it can get on the board, the defense is good enough to force a draw or get a win.

So which hungry nation wins Thursday? Or does it end in a draw? Visit SportsLine now to see the strong Denmark-Australia money-line pick, all from a European football expert whose powerful model is up 1,800 percent in less than three years.
