The quarter-final field is ready, and the action starts on Friday afternoon with a clash at Education City Stadium between Croatia and Brazil. These two sides met in the World Cup 2014 in group stages and the South American side claimed an easy 2-0 victory. It would be a mistake to underestimate the Blazers though. Their performances so far have been solid, still being undefeated in the tournament, while also having a lot of experienced players who won the silver medal in Russia 2018. The second match of the day is a mouthwatering clash between the Netherlands and Argentina, which promises a lot of action and hopefully goals. There are plenty of solid betting opportunities in Saturday’s encounters as well, so let’s take a look at our World Cup accumulator tips below.

Brazil vs Croatia – Brazil to win @ 4/11
Brazilians are not only big favorites to beat Croatia on Friday but also to lift the most prestigious trophy in football for the sixth time. As expected, bookmakers in the UK haven’t been very generous with the odds, currently sitting on 4/11 Brazil to win in regular time. Head manager Tite was thrilled to see his boys score four goals in the first 45 minutes against South Korea in the Round of 16. That was the performance Brazil’s fans were hoping to see since day one. The team didn’t look that fresh in the group stages, scoring only three goals and even losing to Cameroon in round three. Truth be told, Tite did rest some of the key stars in that match. Despite that, Brazil were one of the most popular teams for World Cup accumulator tips. After skipping two games due to an ankle injury, one of the world’s biggest stars Neymar Jr returned in the knockout stages and scored a penalty. The Croatian defense will have a hard time stopping Raphinha, Vinicius Jr, Neymar, and Richarlison upfront. They are extremely lucky to be at this stage after Lukaku missed four goal opportunities on Day 3. We are feeling confident to back the South American side to win this duel in regular time and possibly schedule a big match against Argentina in the semi-finals.
Netherlands vs Argentina – Both teams to score @ 1/1
One of the strongest match-ups in the quarter-finals is taking place at Lusail Stadium where the Netherlands locks horns against Argentina. Leo Messi and co had a couple of rough days so far. Their tournament campaign started with a shocking 1-2 loss to Saudi Arabia, but thanks to dominant victories over Mexico and Poland they managed to top the group despite the upset. La Albiceleste is looking way more dangerous up front since Julian Alvarez replaced Lautaro Martinez in the striker position. They have scored seven goals in four games, and we expect that trend to continue against the Netherlands. As for the opposition, Oranje are not used to being an underdog. They are at 13/5 odds to beat Argentina in regular time at the moment of publishing this article. Memphis Depay has fully recovered from an injury and will most likely be paired with Cody Gakpo in the offense. All signs are pointing to a high-scoring affair in our opinion. Both sides have explosive lineups capable of producing quick goals. Both teams to score is the most reasonable pick at 1/1 and will be our first selection for the World Cup accumulator.
Morocco vs Portugal – Portugal to win @ 4/6
Morocco is the only team from Africa to reach the quarter-finals of World Cup 2022. They clinched the ticket after causing a massive upset and eliminating Spain on penalties. The man of the match was Moroccan goalkeeper Yassine Bounou who stopped three out of four penalty shots. There is no doubt that Atlas Lions are going to implement the same strategy against Portugal, having heavy numbers in the back and being on a constant look for swift counterattacks. Stopping a team that scored 12 goals in the first four games is going to be a difficult task. The Navigators trashed Switzerland a couple of days ago 6-1, sending a clear message to all other title contenders. Even without Cristiano Ronaldo in the starting lineup, Portugal is looking ready to win a medal. Their confidence is going through the roof right now and we will back them to beat Morocco in regular time on 4/6.
England vs France – Both teams to score @ 4/5
An old and bitter rivalry between England and France is going to be renewed on Saturday night as these two sides battle for the semi-finals. Both teams had spectacular appearances in the Round of 16. The Three Lions demolished Senegal 3-0, while Les Bleus easily cruised past Poland 3-1. It is really hard to draw the line and say who has a more potent offense. England’s fans are thrilled with the recent performances by a teenager Jude Bellingham, while Foden, Kane, and Saka have been unstoppable upfront. Defenders need to figure out how to stop the tournament’s best scorer Kylian Mbappe who scored five goals so far. We wouldn’t be surprised if the winner gets decided in extra time or penalties. Both teams to score pick is going to wrap up our World Cup accumulator tips acca.
