WE know one semi-final from the World Cup – and it was the one I predicted at the start of the tournament.
Brazil will take on Germany but while I tipped a Brazil-Argentina final on the anteposts it's looking more likely that Joachim Low's men will KO the hosts after losing banned Thiago Silva for the next match and crocked Neymar for the rest of the tournament.
I said last night to get on Germany to qualify at a best 11-10 if Neymar was confirmed out and they've been cut to odds on with moist bookies this morning. My tip on Friday was France to qualify but they played nothing like they had done earlier in the tournament while the Germans looked to have a better shape with Miroslav Klose playing as a proper No.9.
Today it's all about Belgium v Argentina and Holland v Costa Rica and I've posted separate previews on both games. I'm finding the first one tough to call but can't see past Holland to reach the semis while respecting Costa Rica's achievements so far.
If Argentina win three of the fours sides I tipped to make the semis will have done so. The fourth I predicted could be an outsider as one usually battles through and Costa Rica would fit that bill. But surely 5000-1 no-hopers can't go all the way? Time will tell.
Robben to score (9pm)
Belgium v Argentina under 2.5 goals (5pm)
Holland to win (9pm)
(13-8, McBookie, BetVictor)
