Round of 16 World Cup Picks and Predictions

Round of 16 World Cup Picks and Predictions

World Cup 2014 Predictions

The Round of 16 starts Saturday and will finish up on Tuesday with the group winners and runners-up from the World Cup group stages facing off and the field being narrowed down to only 16 teams. This is the time for teams to really step up and prove why they are at the World Cup.

This is the start of the knockout rounds and the point where draws will no longer get you anywhere. For those of you who are new to this, a match that is level after 90 minutes will go into extra time with two 15 minute periods played. If it is still even after this the match will be decided by penalty kicks.

Penalty kicks may not be the best way to resolve a match, but that is how it is and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a few before this World Cup is over.

Here are my predictions for the Round of 16 matches:

Kickoff Time (ET) Team 1 Score Score Team 2 Venue Final Score
Saturday, June 28
12:00 pm Brazil 2 V 1 Chile Belo Horizonte  1* – 1 (3-2 Brazil win on penalties)
4:00 pm Colombia 2 V 0 Uruguay Rio De Janeiro  2 – 0
Sunday, June 29
12:00 pm Netherlands 3 V 1 Mexico Fortaleza  2 – 1
4:00 pm Costa Rica 2 V 0 Greece Recife  1* – 1 (5-3 Costa Rica win on penalties
Monday, June 30
12:00 pm France 2 V 1 Nigeria Brasilia  2 – 0
4:00 pm Germany 2 V 0 Algeria Porto Alegre  2 – 1
Tuesday, July 1
12:00 pm Argentina 2 V 1 Switzerland Sao Paulo
4:00 pm Belgium 1 V 2 United States Salvador
