Brazil v Holland Bronze Medal Match

Brazil v Holland Bronze Medal Match

Tonight is the night where the bronze medal will be given to one of the two teams, who missed out on going to the final tomorrow evening. Surprisingly to many, the game tonight will be between the hosts Brazil and Holland. Many believed that Brazil with the home advantage would go all the way, but their team collapsed against some highly efficient and well playing Germans.

Holland on the other hand couldn't handle the pressure of a penalty shootout and Holland's head coach Louis Van Gaal told the press after that he doesn't see the meaning of playing for a third place. He said that the teams are there to win and to play a "finale" for a bronze medal is more humiliating than it is useful.

All of that being said, it is time to look at some of the odds for tonight's game. Brazil is by far the favourites to win the game, giving odds 2.15, while a Holland victory gives odds 3.40. Should you believe that it might end up in a draw, then you'll find odds 3.80 on that.

Double chance is also highly in favour of Brazil, giving Brazil or draw odds 1.33, Draw or Holland odds 1.72 and Brazil or Holland at 1.28. The two teams have overall in the world cup scored a decent amount of goals, but since the round of 16, the two teams have struggled to put the ball in the net, which might provide some value in placing a bet on under 2.5 goals in the game at odds 2.10. Over 2.5 goals gives odds 1.70, but is probably based on the fact that Brazil let in 7 goals a few days ago and not on how the tournament overall has gone for them.
