World Cup: What is the betting on Australia?

|

Australia had a few battles along the way, but they qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. They have a tough task to reach the knock-out stages having been drawn into Group C alongside France, Denmark and Peru.

Socceroos Face Tough World Cup Task in Russia. Can they Reach the Last Sixteen? World Cup Challenge. How will they fair?

australia 2018 world cup

Australia are taking part in their fourth consecutive World Cup finals but have only reached the knock-out stages once before in 2006. They lost all three of their group matches in 2014 conceding nine goals and could well do that again in Russia. Just qualifying was a massive struggle due to their inability to win any of their seven away games. They had to play a couple of two-legged play-off games against Syria and Honduras before finally booking their ticket for Russia.

Away form is their big problem and they only won one of their seven qualifying games on their travels. If they can’t beat Iraq, Syria or Thailand on their travels, how can they hope to be successful in Russia against three sides all ranked in the top dozen in the World?

 

World Cup 2018 - Australia's Schedule

  • Saturday 16/06, 11:00 (Kazan) – France v Australia
  • Thursday 21/06, 14:00 (Samara) – Denmark v Australia
  • Tuesday 19/06, 13:00 (Soci) – Australia v Peru

Undoubtedly Australia’s biggest rival in the group will be France who are ranked seventh in the world and last time the two sides met, France won 6-0. None of their games will be easy though. Their second game is against Denmark who are ranked 12 th in the world, though they have been struggling in goal of late but qualified via the play-offs with a stunning 5-1 away win against the Republic of Ireland. Their final game is against an 11 th ranked Peru side unbeaten since a loss to Brazil in late 2016. If Australia are to have any chance of success, they will need massive performances from Tim Cahill, Robbie Kruse and their captain Mile Jedinak.

World Cup 2018: The best bets for Australia

Tim Cahill

tim cahill australia world cupIt’s not often that a side has a top striker who doesn’t actually have a club side but that’s the case with Tim Cahill. The 38-year-old is still in good form though and has 50 goals for his country, including the two that got them past Syria, and this is his fourth appearance in the World Cup finals with three goals so far.

Mile Jedinak

This defensive midfielder scored a hat-trick against Honduras to get Australia to Russia which must have surprised Villa supporters as he’s only scored twice for them in 61 games. He has scored 18 goals in 75 games for Australia but faces some tough midfield battles in Russia. Take advantage of the 1000’s of pounds worth of bonuses to bet on Australia
