In this article we examine the impact of the playoff stage on the toughness of the players and the integrity of the judges. We will also consider the number of corners and the passability of bets on total corners.

Yellow cards

In the group stage, the teams showed surprisingly low stats on yellow cards. The average number of yellow cards per game was 2.72.

What happened in the playoffs, let’s take a look (we will warn you right away that cards are counted only in regular time).

30 yellow cards and 2 red ones. We get 3.75 yellow cards per match, which is almost one more unit than in the group stage. Total over 3.5 went four times out of eight, which is 50%, in the total over group (3.5) played only 33% of the matches. And there were the same number of red cards in the group stage (36 games) as in the 1/8 playoffs – 2 each.

On average, the coefficient for Total under (3.5) is 1.85. With a bet of 15$ for all eight games of 1/8, we would receive -9$, for Total over (3.5), about the same. At the group stage, Total under (3.5) would give us a very good profit, but now it is not clear that the teams play harder, with greater efficiency, and the referees have become much more principled.

Corner

Let’s not talk about the average number of corners per meeting. Better to look purely from the bookmaker’s point of view. The standard total of corners in most matches is 9.5.

At the group stage, Total over (9.5) passed 14 times, Total under – 22 times. In the playoffs, teams again often flirt with total less than 9.5 (5 versus 3).

We take 1.85 for the average odds and get +65$ at the group stage and +17$ at the playoff stage with a bet on Total under (9.5) in the amount of 14$ for each match. Please note that the average ratio is approximate.
