Our prediction of Group E results

  1. Germany
  2. Spain
  3. Japan
  4. Costarica

According to bookies’ odds, 5 teams have better odds of winning the tournament than Germany. But we disagree and we see them in the top 3. Their team has high football quality in each position: experienced players like Neuer, Sané, Kimmich, Muller will fit well with younger players like Havertz and Musiala. A very strong core of their team brings amazing form from Bayern Munich which is their big advantage. Their attacking players (Sané, Musiala, Kimmich, Goretzka..) scored a lot of points for fantasy managers who had them in their Champions League Fantasy teams and this trend could continue through FIFA World Cup Fantasy as well.

Spain has a young dynamic team, they passed the qualification without major problems while they failed to win only twice. They will rely on solid defense but could struggle in the attack. In qualifiers, they scored just 15 goals in 8 matches (although they had a smaller group) which was the least of all group winners.

But Group E is not only about Spain and Germany. Japan will fight for the second spot too, they have many players who play in European competitions and they will be led by the experienced captain M.Yoshida. They could cause some surprises in Group E.

Costa Rica will rely on K. Navas and perhaps he can rack up a few save points in this tough group. Otherwise, we do not see many other players with good fantasy football potential in their squad.
