FIFA World Cup 2018 is just around the corner and with the group drawn and latest international matches played in March we can pretty much see where each and every 32 teams stand going into the world cup. Most of the big guns and usual suspects have made it to the world cup only big causalities have been Italy, Holland and Chile. Germany and Spain go into the world cup as favourites while dark horses like Belgium, France and Brazil are the other three nations who can reach the final. we take a look at world cup draw and predict route to the final.
FIFA World Cup Group Stage Predictions
FIFA World Cup draw is made and we know the 8 groups and since world cup follow bracket style knockouts we know for example group A winners will face group B runners-up and and group B winners take on group A runners-up and so on. Below is the graphic which shows our predictions how the group stage will finish. Its pretty straight forward to predict most of the group winners while group runners-up are pretty much straight forward as well with a few exceptions like group C, E and F.
FIFA World Cup 2018 – Road To World Cup Final Bracket:
Now we know that group a winners take on group B runners-up, group B winners vs group A runners-up. group C winners take on group D runners up, group D winners vs group C runners-up and so on. So from the above graphic we can draw up the first knockout stage matches and so on.
Why We Will Have Argentina vs Belgium World Cup 2018 Final:
If Argentina and Belgium win their groups they won’t meet until the big final. If Argentina win their group D they are set to face who will be Peru as we expect France to win the group C. In the quarterfinals Argentina will face Spain and that will be their first big test. Although Spain defeated Argentina in the last friendly 6-1 but they were missing several key players and a certain Lionel Messi. I expected Argentina to get one over Spain when it really matters and reach Semifinal where i see repeat of World Cup 2010 final against Germany. In my opinion Germany are not as good as people make them to be and I expected Argentina to take the revenge of 2010 final and reach their second consecutive world cup final.
Then again, Belgium if win their gathering will confront Poland in the principal knockout stage which ought to be a straight forward win while in the quarterfinals they will go up against Brazil. This is the place things get fascinating, I rate this belgium group high despite the fact that Roberto Martinez isn’t a mentor with monstrous family however the greater part of Belgium first cooperative people are at the pinnacle of their forces going into the world glass while Brazil are delicate at the back and with Neymar’s damage I dont see them moving beyond Belgium. In the elimination rounds Belgium will confront France and I simply think this French side are the place Belgium were four years prior. Exceptionally skilled squad yet youthful despite everything they don’t have a clue about their most ideal lineup. I anticipate that Belgium will see off France in the elimination round.
