World Cup 2022 – Group A Fixtures
World Cup 2022 – Group A predictions
Netherlands & Senegal
Netherlands have arguably been given the easiest ride at the 2022 World Cup and should find it relatively straightforward to negotiate their passage to the last 16. Louis Van Gaal’s side have one or two injury issues, but finding a way past Senegal, Ecuador and Qatar is unlikely to be an issue. Senegal are an interesting side, who undoubtedly have talent.
They may be living in the shadow of their 2002 performance, however, overcoming a pragmatic, but limited Ecuador shouldn’t be a problem.
World Cup 2022 – Group B Fixtures
World Cup 2022 – Group B predictions
England & Wales
Although England’s passage to the last 16 doesn’t look quite as straightforward as the Netherlands’, the Three Lions should still progress without too many problems. Wales are a tough nut to crack and if Gareth Bale is fit enough to play at least 60 minutes of each match, they should be able to find a way past a USA side, who don’t tend to play well outside of the States. Iran are horrible to play against and will defend for their lives, but inevitably come up short.
World Cup 2022 – Group C Fixtures
World Cup 2022 – Group C predictions
Argentina & Poland
Argentina are expected to extend their 35-match unbeaten streak and cruise through to the knock-out rounds of the tournament here. Lionel Scaloni’s side are too strong for their Group C opponents and are unlikely to drop too many points en-route to the round of 16. Saudi Arabia can be ruled out straightaway and they don’t look any stronger than when crashing out of Russia 2018.
Poland and Mexico are likely to battle it out for second spot with the Poles looking slightly stronger. El Tri have personnel issues and there are still some reservations surrounding the manager Tata Martinez. Poland should do their usual trick of making it through to the round of 16.
World Cup 2022 – Group D Fixtures
World Cup 2022 – Group D predictions
France & Denmark
Arguably the most straightforward group forecast to predict. France and Denmark are far stronger than both Australia and Tunisia, and although there are questions about which of these two European sides will finish top of the section, there is little doubt that the duo will join one another in the round of 16.
World Cup 2022 – Group E Fixtures
World Cup 2022 – Group E predictions
Germany & Spain
Germany and Spain have been drawn alongside one another in an intriguing Group E. Sadly for Japan and Costa Rica, this looks a straightforward task for the two heavyweights and it remains to be seen which of the pair is able to finish top of the pile.
Germany are much better under Hansi Flick and may have enough to edge out La Roja.
World Cup 2022 – Group F Fixtures
World Cup 2022 – Group F predictions
Belgium & Croatia
Both Belgium and Croatia are unlikely to lift the trophy on December 18th, however, they should both be able to make it through to the round of 16.
Canada will probably surprise a few people in Group E and Morocco have a smattering of individual talent, however, Croatia and Belgium should be able to use their experience to make sure they don’t suffer an embarrassing fortnight in Qatar.
World Cup 2022 – Group G Fixtures
World Cup 2022 – Group G predictions
Brazil & Serbia
Brazil are fancied to make it through to the latter stages of the tournament, however, they have been drawn a relatively tough group alongside Serbia and Switzerland. Both of these European nations will be expected to give a good account of themselves and the meeting between the pair of them on December 2nd is likely to be pivotal. The Swiss are dogged and reliable, however, Serbia are playing with confidence and swagger and may just pip them.
World Cup 2022 – Group H Fixtures
World Cup 2022 – Group H predictions
Portugal & Uruguay
Portugal’s performances at this tournament haven’t been particularly vintage, however, in Ronaldo’s final appearance at the tournament, they should make it through to the knock-out rounds as a minimum requirement. Uruguay have a new coach and they have been much better since the appointment. They are well-organised and despite their ageing squad, they should have enough to make it through to the next round.
World Cup 2022 Top Goalscorer Tips
Football fans are looking forward to seeing some of the World’s hottest talents take to the pitch this summer and will all be hoping to shine at the 2022 World Cup.
The Top Goalscorer market is a hugely popular ante-post betting option, and with the majority of the worldt’s most potent strikers going head-to-head, it looks set to be a fascinating four weeks.
Betting on the Top Goalscorer Market
If you’re betting on the Top Goalscorer market, it’s strongly advised to pick players whose countries are likely to reach the latter stages of the competition. It’s also better to select those who are likely to start every single game, and players with poor injury records should be overlooked.
Teams who have been drawn in favourable groups are also worth focusing on and the majority of online betting sites will pay four places at ¼ of the odds, so it’s also worth considering players at bigger prices who could have a breakout tournament.
