2018 World Cup: Five trends of the tournament in Russia


 
 
maxbet An entertaining group stage at the 2018 World Cup has come to an end and it is almost time for the knockout matches to begin out in Russia.With three quarters of the matches now played and half of the teams eliminated, we have already seen great goals, late drama and the shock elimination of the holders.

VAR TAKES CENTRE STAGE
The introduction of VAR was always going to be a key talking point at this World Cup and it has certainly added to the drama and controversy throughout. The delays have frustrated some and the decisions have baffled others - with the penalty calls against Denmark and Portugal, in particular, leading some to conclude that the system has disappointed.

PENALTIES GALORE IN RUSSIA
One of the features of the tournament has been the number of penalties awarded so far. Bryan Ruiz's spot-kick for Costa Rica that found the back of the net via the back of Switzerland goalkeeper Yann Sommer was the 24th at the 2018 World Cup. That is already more penalties than were awarded in total at any previous tournament.

NUMBER OF RED CARDS DOWN
maxbet While the chance to take a second look at decisions has increased the number of penalties, red cards are trending in the opposite direction as the number of players who have been sent off at this World Cup has decreased. During the group stages in Russia, only three players received a red card - Carlos Sanchez, Jerome Boateng and Igor Smolnikov.

TIGHT GAMES AND LATE GOALS
Although the total number of goals scored per game at this World Cup is slightly down on the final average for the last tournament in Brazil, there has still been great entertainment. After all, it is better to watch a game with all outcomes still in play as the contest reaches its climax - particularly when there has been only one nil-nil draw due to so many late twists.

FAMILIAR CONTINENTAL DOMINANCE
maxbet One of those late winners came for already eliminated South Korea against Germany - but while the gap between the best and the rest is closing, the defending champions were an anomaly when it came to the traditional powers. Every one of the other seven countries to have already have won the World Cup succeeded in advancing to the knockout stages.

Friendly round-up: Cardiff and Crystal Palace hand out pre-season thrashings

 
maxbet Crystal Palace ended their Scandinavian tour with a 6-1 thrashing of Swedish side Halmstads.Palace boss Roy Hodgson, who began his managerial career in the country, oversaw an impressive display by his current club against one of his former employers.Christian Benteke finished off an Andros Townsend through-ball with 12 minutes on the clock, but the hosts responded immediately when a cross found Pontus Silver, who smashed the ball beyond Wayne Hennessey and in off the bar.

Benteke soon limped off injured but Palace did not look back, and retook the lead when Patrick Van Aanholt unleashed a rocket of a strike into the corner.Within two minutes he had secured his second, firing into the same corner once Alexander Sorloth's header had been saved.Sullay Kaikai ensured a three-goal advantage at half-time, when he sidestepped two challenges before firing in from the edge of the area.

After the break, James McArthur took advantage of another Sorloth lay-off to make it five, before substitute Jason Puncheon rounded off the scoring.Cardiff City handed out a battering maxbet of their own as they travelled to Tavistock AFC, and returned with a 6-0 victory.Junior Hoilett set the tone with an opener inside 60 seconds, and Joe Ralls made it two with 10 minutes on the clock when he turned home the rebound once his initial header had been saved.

Gary Madine then scored maxbet his first goal in Cardiff colours mid-way through the opening period, and Bobby Reid would do likewise minutes later following some nice link-up between fellow new-boy Greg Cunningham and Hoilett, before the ex-Bristol City man was slipped in to poke in from close-range.Madine added his second of the night with a looping header before the break. Danny Ward added the sixth to complete the win.

Late penalty drama at Swindon

 
 
188bet Swindon new boy Michael Doughty secured an unprecedented debut hat-trick against Macclesfield, thanks to two dramatic stoppage-time penalties at the County Ground on Saturday afternoon.

Koby Arthur's double looked to have set Macclesfield up for victory on their return to the Football League, though Doughty's first - sandwiched in between the two scored by the visitors - ensured there was a slim deficit heading into the final stages of the game.

188bet But what happened deep into injury time could not have been foreseen by either side.When Jared Hodgkiss fouled Elijah Adebayo in the 96th minute, Swindon were awarded a spot-kick that former QPR midfielder Doughty calmly converted to make it 2-2.

Just seconds later, Arthur tripped Adebayo, conceding a second penalty in the process.Welshman Doughty held his nerve once more to strike the ball past Rhys Taylor, breaking Macclesfield hearts 188bet and securing the first three-point-haul of the season for Swindon.
