What Fifa World Cup games can I watch today? Lionel Messi’s Argentina on the brink of exiting Russia 2018
Groups C and D provide the drama on Tuesday night and you can follow all the action with our live blog
Groups A and B are sorted, with shocks to some extent in both group A games, and that means that the letters C and D are relevant for the first time since the mid-’90s.
Only one of the eight teams has already made the knockouts – France – and six of the remaining seven have a chance to make it through to the round of 16 .
It’s all eyes on Lionel Messi as the finalists from Brazil 2014 look to go one better and the Barcelona man attempts to silence the critics back home that suggest he is not as good as Diego Maradona.
First up is group C and Denmark v France, a game that could see both sides go through.
At the same time is Australia v Peru, where the AFC side could make it to the knockouts.
A win or draw takes the Danes through, the Socceroos need a bit more: they need to win and get a two goal swing as well as Denmark losing.
France are favourites for their game ($2.3) over Denmark ($5.25), while Australia ($3.15) are less fancied than Peru ($2.5). Just a point ($3.9) takes France top and a draw in the other game ($3.5) is good for no one.
The games are on the Now TV World Cup channels (618 and 619) from 10pm .
After that is the big one and the possibility that the man that half of the world consider the best player on the planet, Leo Messi, is going out of the World Cup.
Argentina play Nigeria and the South Americans need to win ($1.58). The Super Eagles are through with a win ($7) or a draw ($4.5), providing Iceland don’t win by two goals.
If already-through Croatia lose to World Cup debutants Iceland then things get interesting and the lads from the land of the “Viking clap” need a win ($3.7) to stand a chance. Croatia are $2.25 for the win and the draw is $3.5.
The games are on the Now TV World Cup channels from 2am.
