Morning all! This is the penultimate game of the 2014 World Cup, which has been rated as the best ever by readers of sites all around the world, including our very own BBC Sport. This game should be decent, both sides making changes, and neither wanting a consecutive loss. For this reason I think it will be very tight, Holland have scored just two goal in their 3 knockout games, and played out two Goaless draws with Costa Rica and Argentina. Brazil will bring back Thiago Silva, their leader. We may see a lot of different players, so expect the likes of Hulk and Fred to be dropped, and Hernanes and Willian to feature, as well as Bernard.
Value for the game is Under 2.5 Goals @ 13/10!! Incredible since Holland keep it tight at the back, but don’t score too many either. Brazil have looked a little toothless in the last 2 games, with David Luiz’ free kick something out of nothing. Can’t see anymore than two goals. If I were to hedge my bets and go with one, it would be Holland (Finish 3rd) which covers all, including penalties @ 5/4.
Top Tip – Under 2.5 Goals @ 13/10
Best of luck for those of you betting on the game. Can’t see it being a classic, but more of a game neither can really be bothered with. Van Gaal is leaving after this game, and I expect Scolari to either quit or be canned after a dismal showing in their home country.
