World Cup 2022: Group E Preview

From November 20 to December 18, 2022, the world football championship will be held in Qatar. 32 national teams will take part in the competition, from which eight quartets will be formed. Each of the squads will play three matches in the group, after which the two strongest teams will advance to the 1/8 finals. In this article, Group E will be carefully analyzed, after which we will try to determine who will be in the playoffs, and who will not be lucky and face relegation after the group round.

According to the results of the draw, Spain, Germany, Costa Rica and Japan were in Group E. Having studied the form of the participants, we can assume which of the teams has more chances to reach the playoffs. Bets on this event are accepted by Aviator Mostbet.

Spain

Main stars: Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets, Alvaro Morata, Ferran Torres.

Best result at the World Cup: champion (2010).

In Quartet E, the main competitor for the first place for the Spaniards will be Germany. At the same time, the “Red Fury” not only loves to defeat the Germans, but also knows how. The qualification for the Spaniards turned out to be difficult, but they still managed to win the B quintet. Wards Luis Enrique were above Sweden, Greece, Georgia and Kosovo. At the same time, the Spaniards lost to the Swedes on the road.

“Fury Roja” has in its composition an “alloy” of youth and experience. The change of generations ends and a strong backbone begins to form. If Spain does not manage to get around the Germans, then at least De Gea and the company should secure the second place in the group.

Germany

Main stars: Manuel Neuer, Ilkay Gundogan, Thomas Müller, Marco Reus.

Best World Cup result: Champion (1954, 1974, 1990, 2014)

Germany in almost all world championships was included in the list of main contenders for the title. The World Cup in Qatar is no exception. The sextet in the European selection for the Eagles was easy, and the Germans confidently won it. The guys of Hans-Dieter Flick managed to get ahead of North Macedonia, Romania, Armenia, Iceland and Liechtenstein. In 10 confrontations, the “Bundestim” scored 36 goals, and conceded only four.

The German Machine has experienced defense and midfield. And in the attack, the Germans have a lot of young, but skilled performers. The main battle in the group stage at Mannshaft will be with Spain. The chances of reaching the 1/8 finals from the first place in Germany are not bad.

Costa Rica

Main stars: Keylor Navas, Brian Ruiz, Joel Campbell.

Best result at the World Cup: 1/4 (2014).

The guys of Luis Suarez finished in fourth place in the selection from Central and North America. Leaving ahead of the United States, Mexico, and Canada, Costa Rica is ahead of Panama, Jamaica, El Salvador and Honduras. In the playoffs for reaching the final of the World Cup, the Costa Ricans defeated New Zealand, thanks to the only accurate shot by Joel Campbell in the debut of the meeting.

Los Ticos are doing quite well defensively, thanks in part to PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas. But in the attack, the team does not shine, scoring very little. For Costa Rica, this four can be considered the “death group”. For the first two places, the team from North America is unlikely to catch on, and it will be problematic to score points with the Japanese.

Japan

Main stars: Daichi Kamada, Wataru Endo, Takumi Minamino, Yuto Nagatomo.

Best result at the World Cup: 1/8 (2002, 2010, 2018).

In the Asian qualifier, the Japanese finished second in Group B. Leaving ahead of Saudi Arabia, Japan was ahead of Australia, Oman, China and Vietnam. At the same time, in 10 fights, the “blue samurai” got seven wins with one draw and two losses.

The “buru samurai” have more than half of the squad playing in strong European championships. Japan is a competitive team, but they are unlikely to be able to impose a fight on Germany and Spain.

Our forecast

With a high probability, the Spaniards and the Germans will reveal the winner of the quartet in a face-to-face meeting. At the same time, due to the more experienced roster, the Eagles will most likely be the first, and the Red Fury will advance to the playoffs from the second line. The Costa Ricans and the Japanese will fight for the third position, and due to the powerful selection of players, the Blue Samurai should be preferred here, and the Los Ticos will be at the bottom of the top four.
