From Europe to Qatar: Who will snatch the last tickets?

Published: 2022-03-29 By: The Guru


We already have most of the designed places for Europe to fill: out of the 13 positions, 10 are already assigned, and rightfully so. Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Spain, France, Croatia, Switzerland, Serbia, Netherlands, and, last, but not least, England. These are the teams that achieved the feat of qualifying directly in the qualifying round. 

There’s a way to know exactly which one of these teams stands the best chance of reaching the final, but analyzing the best football betting strategies from Overlyzer will probably be a revealing moment to anyone willing the wage a bet on the winner of the biggest competition in the world.

 

Now, let’s not consider Serbia, Switzerland, France, England, and Belgium, etc, and their perfect campaigns, but rather the squads that met the long and winding road that led them to the play-offs.

There are currently three places to fill and 6 teams on the line, and it's in the best interest of everyone already qualified and, of course, the football enthusiasts, to have a deeper knowledge of the squads that may potentially be at Qatar.

 

Portugal vs. North Macedonia

North Macedonia: Let’s not get fooled by history or the value of the squad. North Macedonia managed to wipe Germany clean and threw Italy – the European Champion – from the World Cup. Elmas is by far the most talented player on the squad, along with Bardhi and Ademi a little far from the wheel, nonetheless. The important thing about the biggest underdogs on the play-off is that they are a team absent of egos and pesky issues, and full of will of making history and bring glory to their home country. Portugal won’t have it easy.

 

Portugal: There was a time people would say Portugal was a synonym of Ronaldo. Not anymore, though; at least if Bernardo Silva, Cancelo and Dias have a say. Then there is Jota, Félix, the veteran gladiator Pepe, João Félix, and a lot of world-star players on a squad that is squaring the claim of the “golden generation” of Portugal’s football history. North Macedonia needs to one-up themselves if they even wish to entertain the idea of going to Qatar.

 

Poland vs. Sweden

Poland: They will host the game, and will most likely be led by Lewandowski, arguably the best player in the world right now. However, Bednarek, Szczesny and Zielinski are also incredible players, spread throughout the field, with the clear job to close lines and feed balls to the man of the hour, the great Bayern Munich striker who’s on a heavy roll.

Sweden: Sweden counts with a renewed offensive coalesce of players that are impressing Europe and can impress the world, assuming they can overpass Poland’s defense. Elanga and Karlsson are incredibly talented wingers, and Isak seems to be the one Ibrahimovic would pass the torch; if Ibrahimovic would be the type of guy to pass the torch. Forsberg and Svanberg are quite experienced and already played in some major international competitions. 

It seems as though that this is probably the most balanced match, which in itself appears to promise a rather fanciful spectacle for those who love the good old game. 

 

Scotland vs. Ukraine – and Wales:

Due to the terrible war on Ukraine, this game has been postponed to July and will happen in Scotland. Although it would be easier to present an insipid and rational presentation of the squads – that would not be insipid if not for the circumstances – there's really too many nuances regarding this match that will probably not reside on the quality of the squads. A stark reminder of that is how the Syria’s squad, for instance, surprised the world in a phase that no one would imagine that they would have the inner strength to do it.

 

To be fair, both teams are not that far apart in terms of talent, so the key may be the sheer will of the players on the field. Without drawing any sentiment towards who should be the winner, one should take the opportunity and hope that the war is over and Ukraine is rebuilding by the time this game is set for.
