World Cup 2010 – Day #12 – Group A

22 Jun

We’re now down to the business end of the group stages and we have a tricky couple of fixtures to start with.

Mexico v Uruguay

With the draw at odds on, everyone is expecting this to end in a stalemate so that both teams qualify.
However with the second place team facing Argentina next, both teams should look to go for it from the start. Mexico are currently second and so I think they may start the scoring.
The other scenario is that if it’s a draw with 20 mins to go, the teams could both hold back not wanting to lose.
As such backing Mexico at HT and the last goal before 67 mins.

1 point Last goal time 67 mins or before @ 6/5 (PaddyPower)
0.5 point Mexico/Draw HT/FT @ 10/1 (Stan James)

South Africa v France

I was on the host nation to qualify from this group but they are now 40/1 to do so and looking down and out.
France however are looking worse with their well reported troubles and with their manager seeming to have no control. South Africa could take advantage.
The trouble is the Bafana Bafana are still lacking quality and won’t be able to score enough if the other game doesn’t end in a draw.
Taking the hosts to gain a small victory with money back if a draw.

1 point South Africa DNB @ 6/4 (BetChronicle)
