Prediction: Brazil vs Switzerland 0

Posted on June 16, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Prediction: Brazil win

Best Odds: 2/5

Bookmaker: bet365

The 2018 FIFA World Cup has already thrown up a series of shocking moments and great goals, and we’re only just getting started. Over the next few days or so every single team in the tournament will play their first game in Russia, with one of the more notable encounters being Brazil vs Switzerland. The five-time world champions are expected to ease their way through this group and into the knockout stages, whereas the Swiss are being tipped to follow the South Americans through to the Round of 16.

Prediction: Croatia vs Nigeria 1

Posted on June 15, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

Prediction: Croatia win

Best odds: 3/4

Bookmaker: Coral

Croatia and Nigeria open their World Cup campaigns against each other. The game should be an interesting clash of European and African football, though a lot of Nigerians also play in Europe. The two teams play in group D of the tournament, which also contains one of the title favourites Argentina and Iceland, one of the nicest surprises of Euro 2016.

The strength of the group’s remaining two teams will certainly represent strong motivation for both sides, and the fact that both Croatia and Nigeria like to play attacking football is also promising.

Prediction: Argentina vs Iceland 0

Prediction: Argentina win

Best Odds: 1/3

Bookmaker: bet365

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is here, and we’ve already had plenty of goals and drama to last us for a few days – but that isn’t how this tournament works. The games are coming thick and fast, and within 24 hours, the supposed group of death aka Group D will be underway. All four teams in the group will harbour realistic ambitions of reaching the knockout stages, and two of them, Argentina and Iceland, will square off in the opening round of fixtures in one of the biggest David vs Goliath encounters of the entire tournament.

The fixtures for the 2018/19 Premier League season have been released, and while they’re always subject to change, we can get a pretty good idea of how things are going to go for every single team in the top flight. When it comes to Arsenal, we’ve already covered what could prove to be a difficult start to life in England for new boss Unai Emery. Now, it’s time to take a look at what could go down in the final six games of the campaign.

Prediction: Germany v Mexico 0

Posted on June 15, 2018 by David Nugent

Verdict: Germany win

Best Odds: 1/2

Bookmaker: Bet365

On Sunday afternoon, world champions Germany will start the defence of their title as they face Mexico in Group F of the World Cup in the Luzhniki Stadium.

Germany

Germany cruised through qualifying with a perfect record. No team scored more than Die Mannschaft’s goal tally of 43 in European qualifying. At the other end of the pitch, they conceded just four times.

The team ranked first team in the world will be looking to become the first team since Brazil in 1962 to retain the World Cup.

Would David Luiz be a good signing? 0

While the focus of football fans around the globe is currently on Russia as the World Cup continues, you could argue that this is going to be one of the most exciting summer transfer windows in recent memory. Several high profile names have jumped ship already in the last few weeks, and as we look ahead to the next few months, it seems like Arsenal could well be one of the most active teams in Europe.

Prediction: Egypt vs Uruguay 0

Posted on June 14, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

Prediction: Both teams to score

Best odds: 5/4

Bookmakers: Paddy Power and Ladbrokes

It’s a tough start for Egypt as they face Uruguay in their first game of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but it shouldn’t be too easy for the South-Americans either. It should be an interesting goalscorer contest between two players that earned high praise in a Liverpool shirt – Mohamed Salah and Luis Suarez. Of course, Suarez has been playing for Barcelona since his move to Catalonia in 2014.

Egypt

The Pharaohs didn’t show particularly great levels of form recently, winning none and losing three of their last five games.

Prediction: Portugal vs Spain 2

Posted on June 14, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Prediction: Draw

Best Odds: 11/5

Bookmaker: bet365

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is finally upon us and here at My Arsenal Blog, we thought we’d take a closer look at some of the games which may or may not feature some of the Gunners’ biggest names. We’re kicking things off with arguably the game of the group stages, as local rivals Portugal and Spain battle it out to determine who gains control of Group B heading into the second set of fixtures.

Prediction: France v Australia 1

Posted on June 14, 2018 by David Nugent

Verdict: France Win

Best Odds: 1/4

Bookmaker: Ladbrokes

France will be pleased with the draw, as Les Bleus are not paired with any other European heavyweight. Australia will believe that they have a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages ahead of Peru and Denmark. However, this game is a daunting start for the Socceroo’s in Russia.

France

Didier Deschamps squad of players for this summer’s tournament is arguably the most talented. Talented youngsters like Ousmane Dembele and Thomas Lemar join stars of the European game like Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann in Les Bleus squad.

Posted on June 14, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The 2018/19 Premier League fixtures have been released, and while football is so bizarre that more people are interested in Russia vs Saudi Arabia today, there’s still some excitement to be had regarding the fact that the new season is just a few months away. We’ve had a quick look at the Gunners’ opening day encounter against champions Manchester City, but beyond that, it’s always interesting to analyse how things could go over the course of the first six games.
