World Cup 2014: Lawro's predictions - quarter-finals

BBC Sport's football expert Mark Lawrenson is predicting the outcome of every game at the 2014 Fifa World Cup.

Lawro picked the correct winner in each of the eight last-16 ties.

Difficult to pick a 2014 World Cup winner - Gary Lineker

He enjoyed a 50% success record in the group stage, correctly guessing the outcome of 24 of the 48 games.

The only group he failed to get a single correct result in was Group D, which was surprisingly won by Costa Rica as England finished bottom.

Before the tournament, Lawro chose 11 out of the 16 teams that went through to the first knockout stage.

He initially chose Argentina to win the final on 13 July... but now believes they will go out in the quarter-finals in a hugely open tournament.

Lawro was speaking to BBC Sport's Chris Bevan.
