OddsAustralia 1/5, New Zealand 7/2

Reigning champions Australia have been in awesome form so far at the World Cup, scoring 192 points and conceding just 14 across their three group games, before thumping Lebanon 48-4 in their quarter-final. 

New Zealand also impressed in their group games, but they were pushed all the way by Fiji before winning 24-18 to set up this showdown with the Kangaroos.

Australia are able to welcome back prop Reagan Campbell-Gillard after he recovered from a leg injury which kept him out of the victory over Lebanon.

Meanwhile, front-rower Moses Leota available is for the Kiwis after overcoming a groin problem, while winger Dallin Watene-Zelezniak is also in contention for a recall after hamstring problems.

Recent World Cups have been dominated by Australia, although New Zealand beat their neighbours 34-20 in the 2008 final to claim their only title.

OddsBirmingham 13/10, Draw 9/4, Sunderland 9/4

Birmingham City play host to Sunderland and they are looking to secure a win which would lift them into the play-off places ahead of the rest of the round of Championship fixtures.

The Blues have lost just once in their last eight league games, with a late Troy Deeney equaliser securing a 2-2 draw at home to Swansea City last time out.

Meanwhile, the visitors have dropped down to 17th place in the table on the back of a run of just two victories in their last ten Championship outings.

These two teams last met during the 2017/18 season, with the clash at St Andrew's ending in a 3-1 success for the home side, while the game at the Stadium of Light earlier on in the campaign finished in a 1-1 draw.

OddsBorussia Monchengladbach 21/10, Draw 14/5, Borussia Dortmund 23/20

Borussia Dortmund will be looking to get back on track when they visit Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday evening, having been beaten 2-0 at Wolfsburg in midweek.

Prior to that loss, BVB had won their previous three league games, scoring ten goals and conceding just one.

The form of Monchengladbach is a mirror of Dortmund's, with Die Fohlen having lost three and won one of their last four Bundesliga matches.

Ahead of this fixture Die Schwarzgelben stand in fifth place in the Bundesliga standings, with Monchengladbach four places below and six points worse off than their opponents.

Last season the meeting of these two sides in Dortmund ended in a resounding 6-0 victory for the hosts - with Marco Reus scoring twice - while the clash in Monchengladbach finished 1-0 to Die Fohlen.
