Belgium vs Tunisia
Eden Hazard has defended Belgium's performance against Panama and claimed this will be "his World Cup". The Red Devils beat Panama 3-0 on Monday but it was not enough to prevent criticism from home, particularly after a goalless first half. Chelsea forward Hazard feels expectations in Belgium are a little unrealistic, although hopes will be high of a better performance against Tunisia on Saturday.
Korea Republic vs Mexico
As Mexico prepares to take on South Korea in Rostov-on-Don, coach Juan Carlos Osorio and his captain Andres Guardado are adamant the team will not be guilty of complacency after opening their World Cup campaign with a surprise win over holder Germany.
Germany vs Sweden
Germany was uncharacteristically poor in a 1-0 defeat, triggering widespread backlash and reports of squad disharmony, which star forward Muller dismissed in the build-up. With Sweden in a strong position after edging South Korea, Germany's title defence could hinge on the result at Fisht Stadium and while the heat is on, Muller is upbeat.
All matches will be telecast live on SONY Ten 2, SONY Ten 3 and SONY ESPN.
