So far, it has been a week filled with exciting sporting action. From the World Cup to shock exits in Wimbledon, Riyad Mahrez and Cristiano Ronaldo completing moves to different clubs, the sports scene has been agog all week.
This weekend will feature even more sporting action, with most of these competitions coming to an end. As we look ahead to all the upcoming action, here are the events you can enjoy – and make money from – this weekend:
FIFA World Cup final
The sporting event that has over-showed every other sport will be coming to an end this weekend.
With 62 games played, all is set for both the 3rd place match and then the final of the World Cup.
The semi-finals featured France and Croatia moving on to the final, leaving Belgium and England behind. The third-place game between Belgium and England will be a repeat of the Group G game between both sides, one that ended 1-0 in favour of the Belgians.
As for the final, it’s somewhat of an uphill task for Croatia – if history is anything to go by. In the past four meetings between both sides, Croatia has never defeated France. Although three of the four games ended with over 1,5 goals, France has won two times with the two other games ending in draws.
The 2018 edition of the third Grand Slam of the year has had twists and turns. So much so that the 2017 winners of both the Gentlemen’s and the Ladies’ categories have been knocked out, leaving room for new winners.
In the Men’s category, it’s certain one of Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic will be featuring in the final this weekend. In the Ladies’ category, Serena Williams has marked her comeback by making it to the final of Wimbledon.
Lewis Hamilton was favourite to win the race at the Sliverstone Circuit last weekend. Not because he has been the fastest driver all season, but because he’s an English driver racing on a track in England. But Sebastian Vettel had other ideas.
The German currently leads the driver’s standings but he’s not totally out of the reach of the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas and others. And the German has a great chance to extend his lead when the next race comes alive in Germany this weekend.
