How many matches will take place in Russia 2018?

There will a grand total of 64 matches to enjoy at the tournament, which lasts for a month and a day. Just one match will take place following the opening ceremony, which will involve hosts Russia. The World Cup 2018 group stages will see staggered matches taking place and this will help fans to take in all of the action, with just enough time in between games to grab another drink! To avoid any disparity and make the tournament fairer, all of the third group games will be held at the same time.

For example, in Group A, both matches will both kick off at 6pm local time. There is often still plenty to be decided at this stage of the event and late goals can change the whole complexion of the standings. These kind of matches are perfect for online betting enthusiasts as the World Cup odds can change within seconds providing big payouts to savvy punters. As always in these competitions, there will also be an additional match taking place 24 hours prior to the final, which features the two losers from the semi-finals as they compete in the third-place playoff match.

The matches are spread around various different venues so any fans following their team’s fortunes in Russia could potentially clock up the miles; however, it’s been announced that there will be free train travel between host cities for supporters.

When do the remaining Qualifiers for the tournament take place?

There are still many World Cup 2018 qualifiers to take place before the groups can be decided. Brazil, who recently returned to the top of the FIFA rankings and are second favorites in the World Cup odds, are one of the few teams that have already secured their place in the tournament alongside Iran and hosts Russia. The remaining qualification matches in South America take place on August 31 and September 5, before a final round of matches at the beginning of October. There could be some significant scores in the remaining fixtures and despite already sealing their place, Brazil can still have a say on which sides join them.

The CONCACAF qualifying groups are underway and unfortunately, Canada finished in third place on seven points. They weren’t able to overhaul Honduras to progress to the fifth round of qualifying (where the teams are whittled down to just three). Canada did compete admirably in the 2017 Gold Cup, and there is plenty of room for optimism in the future.

The remaining fixtures in this section begin on August 28 and conclude on October 10, with Mexico and the USA favorites in the World Cup odds to progress to the tournament. The qualifying predictor suggests this will be the case. The European qualifying groups have four fixtures remaining and these will be played out at the start of both September and October.

How will the schedule look?

The World Cup 2018 schedule will begin to take shape once the draw has taken place at the beginning of December in Moscow. All of the teams will be decided by this point and the excitement is ramped up significantly. There will be a couple of two days breaks during the tournament, which will take place between the conclusion of the group stages and the commencement of the knock-out phase. There will also be a gap between the quarters, semis and the final.

This will allow teams a three or four-day break to train ahead of these crucial clashes. The knock-out stages begin on June 30, with the final eight sides decided on July 3. It’s set to a mouth-watering month of soccer featuring the greatest teams and players in the world and we cannot wait for it to get started.
