We are just a few days away from the start of the planet’s biggest football tournament, the 2022 World Cup (November 20 – December 18), and with the excitement reaching its boiling point, there is just one way for you to be fully ready for what will happen over the next four weeks in Qatar – by reading our big preview, of course! And that’s just the beginning of your football fever because here you’ll be getting top expert tips throughout the entire competition! In other words – you’ll have the best predictions right at your fingertips and when you combine them with the best World Cup odds, there can only be one champion: YOU! So, let’s not waste a minute longer and see what the world’s biggest football stage will offer us…
Who will be this year’s finalists?
When it comes to World Cup tournaments, there are two teams you just can’t ignore – the most successful team in the competition’s history and the team that last won the trophy. With five titles in their trophy cabinet Brazil are the record holders. True, they last triumphed 20 years ago – back in 2002 when they beat Germany on Asian soil (a good omen?) in the final, but with superstars like Neymar and Vinicius Junior being on fire, the Brazilians are a true force to be reckoned with. And who are the reigning champions? France, of course, who defeated Croatia in the final in Russia four years ago. So, on paper at least, these two teams are the favourites to reach this year’s final when it comes to our Outright odds. And our experts’ prediction reflects exactly that…
Right then, but who will be the 2022 champions?
Logically, Brazil and France are leading the Outright odds when it comes to hot favourites to win the 2022 World Cup trophy. We’ve already mentioned the star-studded Brazilian team, but reigning champions France shine just as brightly. True, they will be without injured Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante who both were key members of their title-winning team four years ago, but the French side has plenty of other talented players to rely on. And here’s the positive big difference compared to their squad from Russia 2018 – they now have the best player in the world, current Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema. Pair the Real Madrid striker with in-form Kylian Mbappé, and they might just be unstoppable for any defence in Qatar. Or course, you’ve also got Leo Messi’s Argentina, priced at 7.40 to win the trophy, or Euro 2020 finalists England (8.40), but we think that France might well be too strong for the oppositions and could successfully defend their title.
Recommended Bet: Back France at 6.95 to win the World Cup again!
And who will be the top scorer?
The World Cup in Qatar is going to be unique for many reasons and one of them is the fact it will be played in mid-season. And this is important because so many top players will be in top form and not tired after another exhausting club season as it’s been the case in recent years. So, we expect the 64 games to produce lots of football magic and goals, of course! And one of the most prestigious individual awards will be the Golden Boot prize which is given to the tournament’s top scorer. Even though we’ve already mentioned goal machines like Neymar, Mbappe and Benzema, we think another stellar name might steal the award. And that name is Lionel Messi. This might be the Argentine’s last-ever World Cup appearance and he’s ready to make it count. And given the fact Argentina are in a group with Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland, Messi might find the back of the net quite a few times in the group stage already. Then we expect Argentina to go far in the tournament and this will give Messi lots more chances to get his name on the scoresheet…
Recommended Bet: Back Messi at 12.50 to be the World Cup Top Goalscorer!
