Less than 10 games remain to find out which country will lift the trophy next Sunday, December 18, at the Lusail Stadium.

Xpecta Data Lab carried out a probability test using a data model with the teams that could advance to the semi finals, the final and then win the World Cup.

The data shows Brazil to be the favourites to win the World Cup.

“To build the probability model, Xpecta Data Lab took into account variables that demonstrate the defensive and offensive strengths of the two teams in each tie, based on historical results since 2014. The xG (expected goals) of the last 5 goals scored was used to obtain the odds of each match and the ELO of each team was used, that is, a metric that measures the level of the team based on the results to date, similar to the FIFA ranking score” Xpecta said.
