World Cup: Mexico vs. Croatia, Brazil vs Cameroon

Win Probabilities

Tale of two games. Croatia - Mexico is a very very close contest, while Brazil - Cameroon is the single most lopsided contest so far. 538 published a very detailed analysis here of all the potential advancement scenarios, but the simple summary is Mexico advance if they draw or win, and Croatia advance if they win. Brazil is advancing (very very probably).
