National Team Stats

Who's coming into this tournament in the best form? Brazil, and their 76% Clean Sheet record? Or maybe it's the Swiss, who has lost just once in the last fifteen games. Watch out for Belgium too, who are unbeaten in fifteen, scoring fifty-three goals.

Over & Under Stats

Goals, goals and more goals. That's what we want to see in Russia 2018. What are the chances of that happening? Well, that's why we have created this Over/Under table, to show you just how much specific teams have been scoring on the way to the World Cup. Spain, Poland and Uruguay are three sides that stick out from the data. Belgium and France can score a lot of goals on their day too, but have played some lesser opponents during their road to Russia. Who do you think will be the top-scoring side at this World Cup?

Half-Time Goals in The World Cup

Will your team fly out of the traps and look to dominate games early on, like Germany and Spain, or will they be more contained and cautious, like Portugal and England. Did you know that leading up to the World Cup, England has not scored more than one goal in the last six fixtures. Spain and Belgium are two sides who's games have a high percentage of goals in the first half. Will they take that tactical approach into the World Cup? Spain certainly could against Iran and Morocco.

Corner Stats for The World Cup Corner Stats

Corners are a great market for betting and that does not change in the World Cup. Here you can see the total corners for each team, or filter to show the corners for and against. The trend is the teams that hold on to the ball, dominate possession, will have more corners. Currently leading the way are Belgium, Germany and Spain.

Card Stats Card Stats

In tournament football, you need discipline. Unfortunately, some teams and players do not have this and many cards are shown in these high-pressure matches. Interestingly, the South American teams recieve more cards than other nations.

Player Stats Player Stats

This is the biggest stage in world football, and the perfect place for a player to make a name for himself, or remind everyone that he's not finished yet. James Rodriguez earned a move to Real Madrid after 2014, who will make this their World Cup? Christian Eriksen has been in incredible form whilst playing for Denmark recently, scoring eleven goals, including a hat-trick in their play-off game against Ireland. Kevin de Bruyne wasn't quite the player he is now back in 2014, how much of an impact could he have on the competiiton?

Scoring At The World Cup: A Brief History

Playing for your nation is one thing, plyaing at a World Cup for your nation is another thing, but scoring at a World Cup. That has to be one of the greatest feelings for any footballer. Andrés Iniesta could not contain himself when he scored for Spain in the final minutes of extra time back in 2010, nor could Mario Gotze four-years later against Argentina. Those moments are magic, and I'm sure we'll see plenty more in Russia 2018.

Coming into this World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski are leading the way in terms of international goals scored. However, players like Mo Salah, Edison Cavani and Harry Kane have been scoring for fun at club level all season. The current all-time World Cup top goalscorer is Germany's Miroslav Klose.

Who Will Be The Creative Genius in Russia?

Having Lukaku, Lewandowski or Higuain in your side is great, but they won't score many without the right service. You need a play-maker, a creative force in midfield that makes the whole side tick. Belgium has de Bruyne, France has Pogba, England has... OK, let's not discuss England. Brazil has Coutinho, and many others. These technical wizards see passes that nobody else on the pitch, or in the stands, can see.

Interestingly, you can see that Joshua Kimmich is becoming a huge part of the German nationl side, with eight assists in the last fifteen games. What's more is that he's mostly a defender, and to have that many assists in a side containing Sane, Ozil, Draxler and Co. is superb. He's certainly one to look out for this tournament. He recently sccored in both semi-final games againt Real Madrid for Bayern Munich.

Most Clean Sheets

Who's The Best Goalkeeper in The World And Can The Have A Say on Russia 2018?

The men between the sticks. Often overlooked, but vitaly important. As David de Gea has shown time and time again, a great goalkeeper can keep you in games and at times win you points. The best keepers are remembered for those big saves that they make time and time again, but no more so than in the World Cup. Many still discuss that Gordan Banks save against Pele in 1970. However, it's not just the remarkable saves that stay with you. The World Cup can be a toxic place for a goalkeepr, and not a place you want to be making mistakes. Many do, and the fallout after is often brutal.
