In a World Cup filled with historic drama and upsets, none is bigger than what the host country from Russia has been able to bring to the table.

They were the lowest ranked team in the entire tournament coming in, and in the two years between Euro 2016 and this tournament they had won just six of the 17 games they played, none of which came against a team in the World Cup.

But from the opening whistle and a 5-0 blowout of Saudi Arabia to begin the tournament, they showed their very best game and it’s led them to this point. They got a huge 3-1 win over Egypt to book their spot in the second round and then they had their low point, a 3-0 defeat to Uruguay with the group title on the line. It led to a showdown with one of the pre-tournament favorites, Spain in the round of 16.

The teams were tied at one before the half and that’s how things remained until penalty kicks. From there a hero was born, as goalie Igor Akinfeev made two key saves to help the hosts advance.

They’ll play Croatia who has arguably been the best team through four games thus far. They play the modern game at an elite level, able to control play from the midfield with the aid of their superstar Luka Modric. From there he’s been able to set up the attack to a host of great strikers up front including Ante Rebic, Mario Mandzukic and Marko Pjaca.

It led to impressive 3-0 win over Argentina in the group stage. In the round of 16 they eliminated a frisky Denmark team 1-1 and 3-2 on penalties. All the regulation scoring was completed in the first four minutes, a record for how quick it took both teams to score in a World Cup game. Modric was denied on a late penalty in extra time, but then made up for it in penalty kicks. Croatian goalie Danijel Subasic made two key saves to help push his team through.

Bovada Sportsbook currently have the Croatia listed as +120 ML Favorites versus the Russia, at +280 ML Undergod while the Draw is at +205.

The Bottom Line:
Russia is +280 underdogs, Croatia +120 favorites and the draw is +205. Russia has been able to ride the wave of support this far and I think they can at least push this to extra time and give their fans at least one more thrill. The Pick: Russia 1-1 (win on penalties).
