So, who is it going to be this time? Who will lift the FIFA World Cup 2018? We are here with our predictions. Let’s find out who has the highest probability of winning the cup in Russia.
Before we give out our predictions, here is a list of the parameters that we have taken into consideration. We have analyzed every team that qualified for the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia and rated them based on their recent performances, players, tactics, coaches, playing condition, and fitness, and performed predictive analysis and sports analysis. Based on the factors, we have the following probable face-off and subsequent winners.
The top 10 teams who have the highest probability of entering the Quarter Final stage are Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Spain, England, France, Argentina, Belgium, Croatia, and Columbia. Croatia and Columbia are the dark horses to watch out for and can play a critical role while deciding the final faceoff.
Considering that no upset happens, there is a 43 percent probability of a Germany vs France final, with a high probability of Germany emerging as the winner and thereby lifting the FIFA World Cup 2018.
However, if Croatia makes it to the quarterfinals, there is a 50 percent chance of a Brazil vs Germany final. And, finally, considering there can be some major upsets, there remains 25 percent chance that we get the dream final faceoff between Brazil and Argentina.
Football remains a highly unpredictable game that can change all equations at the last moment, as has been proven time and again. This prediction is based purely on statistics considering multiple factors. However, there are always factors that remain unaccounted for and which can change the outcome of the game altogether. Thus, we will all have to wait till the last day to see who finally emerges as the winner of FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia.
