France v Poland = France -1 Handicap
France have been hugely impressive so far and although their much-changed XI failed to take anything from their final Group D encounter, their first teamers should be ready to strike in the round of 16. Only Germany (now eliminated) have fired in more shots than Les Bleus so far and with Kylian Mbappe set to return for this tie, they should be able to make light work of Poland. Didier Deschamps’ side always turn up to major tournaments and the holders couldn’t have been handed a much easier round of 16 contest.
Poland have been exceptionally poor so far and were arguably the luckiest team to progress. They have looked poor going forward and with an average of 6.3 shots per game at the tournament, only Costa Rica have been less productive in the final third. They look likely to struggle here.
England v Senegal = Over 2.5 Goals
Although England will be pleased to have drawn Senegal in the round of 16, this contest will be far from straightforward for the Three Lions. Nevertheless, Gareth Southgate’s men were excellent against Wales and should be able carry on where they left off. They looked devastating going forward and were able to pounce upon hesitancy from the Welsh defence.
Senegal are yet to keep a clean sheet at this tournament, however, they’ve also found the net on three occasions and probably should have found the net against the Netherlands. They will be dangerous going forward, but potentially loose at the back.3/1 World Cup ACCA at bet365
