Early Predictions for the 2020 FIFA World Cup

Reigning champion France is one of the favorites for the upcoming event in Qatar and many believe that the team will repeat its great success. On the other hand, bettors are not so sure about the Croatian team who made it to the 2018 World Cup finals. According to experts and bettors, Brazil also has great chances to win in Qatar while England, Germany, and Spain are also among the top five favorites for the title.

After missing the previous World Cup tournament, the Netherlands and Italy will probably find their way back to the biggest football event. Portugal and Argentina also have great odds. Armenia may be one surprise qualifier for the World Cup considering the team played extraordinarily against Romania, Iceland, and Liechtenstein even without its star man. One of the possible surprise qualifiers may also be North Macedonia as well as Latvia, Luxembourg, Syria, and Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao that has Patrick Kluivert to guide the team.
