Fifa World Cup 2018 COUNTDOWN: 8 Days to Go | Group A | Group B | Who will qualify?
In exactly 8 days, the 21st edition of the Fifa World Cup will start in Russia.
In my last posts I listed some interesting statistics about the teams taking part in the World Cup:
In the upcomming series of posts, I will share my tips of the outcome of each group with you. I will then end the serie by projecting my expectations of the road to the finals in the tournement tree.
The group A consists of Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Uruguay.
Uruguay is likely to win this group. Runner up should be Russia. Both should be able to make through the group phase. Egypt could ruine the party for Russia. It is always too bad when the host gets kick out early in tournament. But I don't expect this to happen this time around.
I think Saudi Arabia stands no chance.
Here is my tip of the table and standings of the groupe A after all games are played
Uruguay to lead the table followed by Russia.
The group B consists of Morocco, Portugal, Iran and Spain.
For me Spain is the clear favorite to win this group. Morocco is not so bad. But they MUST win big points against Portugal AND Spain and of course beat Iran if they want to survive the group phase. I think that will be a hard task.
Here is my tip of the table and standings of the groupe B after all games are played.
Spain will lead the table followed by portugal. No chance for Iran.
