HiveBuzz World Cup Contest - Round of 16 - Recap of Day 4

in Word Cup 2023last year (edited)

Here are the results of the last day of the knockout phase

Today we were treated to a mix of surprise and non-surprise, but in any case it was two extraordinary matches.

First of all the incredible and totally unexpected victory of Morocco against Spain. Much to the chagrin of the majority of punters who thought that Spain was going to make short work of this team.

Then, the brilliant victory of Portugal with 6 beautiful goals against Switzerland. A wonderful game.

It is therefore Marocco and Portugal who are qualified for the quarter-finals.

Contest distribution and ranking

We are progressing in this World Cup and the ranking is slowly becoming clearer among the participants.

Here is a breakdown by the number of badges:


Here are the top 25 players. Remember that the sooner you make your bets, the higher you will find yourself in the ranking compared to other players who have the same score as you.

Not many changes in the top 3. It's always the same ones who dominate the race. On the other hand, they are only 5 left with a one-badge gap. There seems to have been some skimming on that day.

We are now going to take a short (well-deserved) break until the quarter-finals. See you soon.

If you are not listed above, you can check the Ranking Page to find out how far you are from the top.

I've got to make big decisions now

It was a interesting day for sure

Well-deserved break indeed, it must have been quite frantic for you, thank you! Too much excitement with all the surprises as well!


I had been waiting for that surprise for days in the Round of 16 and the day I didn't play it, it happened, hahaha... I lost my place in the top-3, but here we continue.

Hi @hivebuzz I guessed right the match for the Portugal vs Switzerland but it was not counted.
I'm supposed to have guessed right 33games at the moment, I hoped it can be fixed, Thanks.
