World Cup Bet of the Day: France and Germany to be level after 90 minutes
With very little to choose between these two European heavyweights, we think they'll finish level after 90 minutes. What happens after that is anyone's guess.
While all the pre-tournament talk was about European teams never winning the World Cup outside of Europe, we think these two teams have a very strong chance of ending that hoodoo. Both have been impressive in qualifying for the knock-out stages and although Germany needed extra-time to overcome the brave challenge of Algeria in the previous round, you know that they can never be ruled out.
France have only conceded two goals on their march to the quarter-finals and Karim Benzema has been in imperious form. With Paul Pogba (pic above) depressing Manchester United fans everywhere with his sheer class in the French midfield, they have a lot of good things going for them. We cannot decide who will win what promises to be a titanic tussle, so the odds of 9/4 for a draw after 90 minutes are too enticing to ignore.
