Our explanation on the qualifiers 

To understand the reasoning of our football prediction specialists, here are some useful explanations. To begin with, let's look at the reasons behind the teams in the Round of 16.

In Group A are the host nation Qatar but our experts have no doubt that the Netherlands, who are more talented and experienced than their opponents, will take first place. Behind them, Senegal are expected to take second place and reach the Round of 16. Qatar and Ecuador seem to be a step below them.

Group B should logically be dominated by England, who have a fine generation of players and should reach the knockout phase if playing at their best. The United States are expected to finish second, ahead of Wales but will need to improve their away form.

In Group C, Argentina should set the pace and finish first. Poland, who have an interesting squad with Robert Lewandowski at the helm, could take the second qualifying spot. Mexico could be the surprise package, but the 2022 World Cup looks like it could (finally) be a good one for the Poles.

In Group D, Denmark and France will be neck and neck. The French should still finish top of the group with the Danes likely to finish in second place, ahead of Tunisia and Australia.

In Group E, two European giants are present. Former World Cup winners Spain and Germany will be battling for top spot, and are likely to take the last 16 places at the expense of Japan and Costa Rica. The Germans, who are more experienced could finish ahead of the Spaniards.

In Group F, we have Belgium who finished third in the 2018 World Cup. They should be able to finish ahead of Croatia who were the finalists four years ago. Morocco should finish in third, ahead of Canada.

In Group G, Brazil are the overwhelming favourites to finish top. Switzerland should be able to pip Serbia and Cameroon to reach the last 16 of the tournament.

Finally, in Group H, the last of this World Cup 2022, Portugal and Uruguay are expected to fight it out for first place. The 2016 European champions, with their talent, could well take first place ahead of the South Americans. This is the expectation of many of our experts on the World Cup.

Our explanation of the finals

Now that you know our opinion on the World Cup group stages, let’s take a look at the knockout rounds.

The Round of 16

World Cup 2022 predictions - round of 16

According to our experts' analysis during the group stage, the Netherlands will play against Christian Pulisic's USA. They should logically make it through this round and into the quarter-finals. We see the same fate for Argentina against Denmark, Germany against Croatia, Brazil against Uruguay, France against Poland, England against Senegal, Spain against Belgium and finally Portugal against Switzerland for the last 16.

The quarter-finals

World Cup 2022 predictions - quarter finals

We’re down to the final eight teams now in the 2022 World Cup. Lionel Messi's Argentina should be able to defeat Memphis Depay's Netherlands. Neymar and Brazil will have a tough game against the Germans, but would have the quality to reach the last four. The clash between France and England will be difficult for both teams, but our experts see a French victory here. In the expected Portugal-Spain clash, the Spaniards should get the better of Cristiano Ronaldo and his team-mates, which means the legendary Ronaldo might play his last World Cup without lifting the trophy.

The semi-finals

The last four of the competition would then see two huge clashes. Argentina will face Brazil, while France will play Spain for a place in the World Cup final. And it is the two Parisian based players Neymar and Mbappé who can make it through to the final of the 2022 World Cup.

The Final

World Cup 2022 final prediction

Now to the most important match in world football and we believe it’ll be between Brazil and France, a déjà-vu of the 1998 finals. But this time there won’t be a victory for Les Bleus! Neymar and his team-mates are on a high at the start of the World Cup and look set to win the title and add a sixth star to their shirts. The team's victory would then be much deserved, with a dream run against Uruguay, Germany, Argentina and then France. It would be enough to make many football lovers accept they are the best team in the world.

So that's it, as far as our predictions for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar are concerned. Do you agree with us?
