Who Will Win The 2022 FIFA World Cup

The main football event of 2022 is the World Cup in Qatar. Favbet already has a line for this World Cup, you can place your bet on the winner of the tournament. I will tell you about the favorites of the 2022 World Cup based on the coefficients given by Favbet. 

To bet on the winner, you need to select the sport “Football” in the “Sports” section and go to the “Results” category. You can predict both the winner of the World Cup and the teams that will reach the final, semifinals, or 1/4 finals. You can also bet on the best scorer of the tournament.

Brazil

The main contender for victory at the World Cup is the Brazilian national team. The coefficient on the “seleção” is 5.50. The Brazilians have a great history of performances at the World Cups – it is the only team in the world that has participated in all the World Cups. 

Brazil is also the absolute record holder for the number of World Cups won – 5 victories. The last time they won the World Cup in 2002 and now, according to bookmakers, have every chance to repeat this achievement.

The Brazilians qualified for the World Cup without defeat, winning 14 out of 17 matches. The composition of the “Celesao” is also all in order. The top players of this team would be enough to create two equally capable teams.

The main trump card of the Brazilians is the attacking link. Neymar, Vinicius Junior, Risharlison, Rafinha, Anthony – all of them are the stars of world football, so at the upcoming World Cup we expect from them, first of all, a spectacular game and goals scored. A large number of top performers will allow the coach to rotate the squad without losing the quality of the game, which will help the Brazilians to evenly distribute forces and approach each match in optimal form.

England

According to Favbet, England is the second contender to win the 2022 World Cup after Brazil. The victory of the “Three Lions” is estimated by odds of 6.30. 

In qualifying for the World Cup, England played with Poland, Hungary, Albania, Hungary and San Marino. In this group Gareth Southgate’s team easily took first place, winning 8 matches and drawing 2. England once won the World Cup back in 1966.

Under the leadership of Southgate, the team demonstrates interesting football, and at the last Euro 2020 proved that it is able to compete with major teams for trophies. Then England reached the final, where they lost to Italy in a series of post-match penalties.

The most expensive footballer of the England national team Harry Kane, who became the top scorer of qualification for the 2022 World Cup

According to Transfermarkt, England have the most expensive squad among all participants in the upcoming World Cup. The total cost of players is more than 1 billion euros. This team has one of the youngest squads at the World Cup, the average age of which is about 26 years. Among the main stars of the team are Bukayo Saku from Arsenal, Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund, Raheem Sterling and Mason Mount from Chelsea, Phil Foden from Manchester City, and the most expensive English player Harry Kane from Tottenham. 

England has a very capable squad that can claim the title. Unless there may be problems in defense, where there are not so many world-class representatives. Given the failures of England in past tournaments, in my opinion, England will not win this World Cup.

France

France is the current world champion and will try to defend its title at the upcoming World Cup. The coefficient for the French victory is 6.50. In qualifying they faced Ukraine, Finland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kazakhstan. France won this group without losing a single match. 

The last matches of the national team in the League of Nations were extremely unsuccessful. In June the team played 4 matches: 2 lost and 2 drew. Despite the slight decline of the team in the summer, I am sure that the French will impose a fight and claim the title of the upcoming World Cup.

France easily took first place in the group

As in the case of Brazil, France can assemble two equivalent top teams. Didier Deschamps has 2-3 high-class players for one position, so the competition is fierce. For France, the two best forwards in the world at the moment are Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe, and Antoine Griezmann helps them create chances. Together these players scored 14 of 18 goals in qualifying. 

In my opinion, France is even closer to victory than England, whose chances are estimated by bookmakers as higher.

Spain

Bookmakers quite highly estimate the chances of Spain to win the 2022 World Cup. Favbet gives odds of 9.00. 

The golden times of the national team were from 2008 to 2012. Then the “red fury” twice won the Euro and triumphed at the World Cup in South Africa. After the national team began a decline, which was accompanied by the so-called “change of generations”. Sergio Ramos, Pique, Xavi, Iniesta, Fabregas – all these players were key figures in that invincible team, but someone has to replace these players.

Spain for a long time could not find the optimal composition that would give the result, from which their results were unstable. But now, it seems the Spaniards managed to establish the game and form a team that will seriously compete with the top teams for trophies.

I would like to single out a couple of young central midfielders of “Barcelona” Gavi and Pedri, who, despite their young age, are already major players. These talents are only 18 and 19 years old respectively, so they have not yet reached their football peak. 

The Spaniards are a strong team, but they currently do not have a man who could pull out matches on his own, like Mbappe in France or Neymar in Brazil. Yes, there is Ansu Fati, but he is still quite young and has not been in optimal form lately. Therefore, I think that the absence of such a player may prevent the Spaniards from competing for the title. 

In my opinion, this Spanish national team is not yet ready to take the World Cup. Many players from the main squad have not yet reached their peak, so I think they will be real contenders for victory at the upcoming Euro 2024 and the next World Cup 2026, but not at this World Cup.

Argentina

The fifth contender for the trophy is the national team of Argentina, for which “Favbet” gives odds of 10.00. Now, this national team is in incredible shape. The Argentines have not lost 33 matches in a row, which is the longest streak in their football history. 

Last year the Argentines won America’s Cup for the first time since 1993. Argentina won the World Cup even earlier – in 1986. This year they will try to repeat the achievement, but it will be extremely difficult for them.

Argentina has a fighting squad, but in my opinion, it will not be enough to win the 2022 World Cup. There are no questions about the attack – Messi, and Di Maria, for whom this will be the last World Cup in their career, they will make a difference in the attack with the help of Lautaro Martinez and Paulo Dybala. 

But there are big doubts about the reliability of Argentina’s defense. Except, probably, Christian Romero, none of the defenders is a top star of world football. For Argentina still plays 34-year-old central defender Nicolas Otamendi, which only confirms the limited choice of coach Lionel Scaloni. In my opinion, not the strongest defensive link and a short bench will prevent Argentina from holding all the matches of the World Cup at a high level.

Other contenders

These were the five main contenders to win the 2022 World Cup, but there are still several teams that can compete for the trophy. Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Belgium are not the favorites of the tournament, but these teams can impose a struggle on any team. The coefficient for Germany’s victory is 12.00, and Favbet estimates the chances of the other three teams at 13.00. 

Separately, I will highlight the German national team. In my opinion, it has even more chance to win than Argentina. Unlike the Latin Americans, the Bundestim has a larger set of top performers and has no weak positions. With such a selection of players, Hansi Flick can afford to rotate the squad without losing quality, which will allow him to evenly distribute the workload and not feel fatigued due to the exhausting World Cup calendar.

Top scorer

Favbet also gives you the opportunity to bet on the best scorer of the upcoming World Cup. The top five contenders for the golden boot are Harry Kane, Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. The bookmaker believes in Kane the most, giving him odds of 8.00.

Who will be the top scorer of the 2022 World Cup

In my opinion, Karim Benzema is underestimated, the coefficient is 12.00. The Frenchman had a crazy last season and is the main contender in the voting for the Ballon d’Or. I think Benzema has as much chance as Kane to win this award.
