“Deutsche Machine” will hold its twentieth World Cup! At the same time, the German national team has as many as 4 victories at the world championships. Many users of mobile 1xBet are already giving their predictions and betting on the winners of the Qatari tournament. If we discard the obvious options with Brazil and France, which almost always fail, then we advise you to take a closer look at the Bundesteam, which is always a formidable force for every opponent and has a chance of winning in any tournament.

Bundesteam’s path to the Qatari World Cup
The German national team qualified for the World Cup quite easily. Of the first six games, the wards of Hans-Dieter Flick already had 18 points, so the team’s fans probably no longer worried about the selection for the World Cup. In the group with Germany there were such teams as North Macedonia, Armenia, Romania, Iceland and Liechtenstein. After the end of the competition, the Germans had 27 points, 36 goals scored and 4 goals conceded. The statistics are just incredible. Only one defeat out of 10 matches of the German national team was issued by a rather modest North Macedonia with a score of 1:2, but already in the return match, the German Machine did not leave a stone unturned from the opponent, winning with a score of 4:0.
Germany’s opponents in the group stage of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar
The team led by Hans-Dieter Flick at the World Cup got into group “E”, where the Germans are the rivals of the national team of Spain, Japan and Costa Rica. Traditionally, the top two teams from the group will advance to the playoffs. Many bookmakers, judging by the quotes, have already written off the national teams of Japan and Costa Rica, and suggest that the fight for 1st and 2nd places will unfold between the Germans and the Spaniards. This makes sense, as there are indeed two clear favorites in Group E.
The bookmakers consider the Spanish national team a minor favorite in the group, but the fans of the “Deutsche Machine” could certainly argue with them. Surely, such quotes are associated with the last slurred performances of the German national team at the recently concluded Nations League tournament. However, many of us know that in this tournament, many coaches of major national teams play lineups, let young players play, try new formations. Therefore, we would not take these results seriously. For reference, we note that, unlike Germany, which not so long ago lost to Hungary and painted the world with the same Hungary and twice with England, the Spanish team played their last sparring much more confidently. Despite the defeat from the Swiss national team, the “Red Fury” beat Portugal, the Czech Republic and the same Switzerland (in the first match).
If anyone can impose a fight on the German team other than the Red Fury, it will most likely be the Japanese team. This is, as always, a tenacious team with a good selection of players, including those representing well-known European clubs, which can “resist”.
A clear outsider of the group, who will have little chance of taking points with any opponent, not to mention such “monsters” of world football as the national teams of Germany and Spain. Bookmakers practically do not give Costa Rica a chance in the match against the Germans, even for a draw. And we completely agree with them.
