In five months, the 2022 World Cup will begin in Qatar.
A computer has calculated which teams have the best chance of winning the title.
Munich - The countdown is on!
The 2022 World Cup is approaching, the controversial tournament in Qatar begins on November 21.
The final participants have now also been determined: Wales, Australia and Costa Rica bought the remaining tickets for the World Cup in the playoffs.
Germany will face Spain, Japan and Costa Rica in Group E. The team coached by national coach Hansi Flick will then play the first game on November 23 against Japan.
In addition to Spain, the DFB-Elf is considered a big favorite in the group.
A supercomputer calculated that black, red and gold will probably not win the title.
World Cup 2022: Computer calculates the most likely world champion
Much more likely:
France will be world champion
The computer from
calculated the entire World Cup 1000 times, simulating all possible routes and games 1000 times.
Data such as market values, player strength, current form and world rankings were taken into account.
The result: France will be the champion again with a probability of 17.93 percent - the title from 2018 would be defended.
Les Bleus narrowly beat Brazil, the Selecao have a probability of 15.73 percent.
Why is France more likely to win the World Cup?
, this is mainly due to the possible opponents in the knockout games.
In the worst case, Brazil's path would be a round of 16 against Portugal or Uruguay, a quarter-final against Germany or Spain and a semi-final against Netherlands or Argentina.
France would have an easier way on paper: Mexico or Poland would be possible in the round of 16, then England or Senegal could wait before Spain or Portugal could finally be considered in the semi-finals.

Germany at the 2022 World Cup: According to the computer, the probability of a title is only 7.21 percent
The sad truth: the computer hardly gives the Flick-Elf a chance.
The probability of a world title is therefore only 7.21 percent, which is only seventh place in the ranking!
No wonder if you look at the possible German opponents in the course of the tournament.
A round of 16 against Croatia or Belgium, a quarterfinal against Brazil or Portugal and a semifinal against England, France, Argentina or the Netherlands.
Everything has to go according to plan for "The Team".

Computer calculates probabilities
1. France - 17.93 percent
2. Brazil - 15.73 percent
3. Spain - 11.53 percent
4. England - 8.03 percent
5. Belgium - 7.90 percent
6. Netherlands - 7.70 percent
7. Germany - 7.21 percent
8. Argentina - 6.45 percent

On the other hand, England, Argentina, France and Brazil were eliminated at the past World Cups - sometimes extremely clearly.
There shouldn't be a lack of self-confidence, international respect for the DFB selection at major tournaments is still huge.
And why not?
Germany has four stars on its chest (all World Cup titles at a glance).
Only Brazil has won one more World Cup.
