Mundial: Finale in 5th and 6th Group (Qualifying scenarios)
The 5th and 6th groups conclude today with great games and we will finally see which 4 teams from these groups will qualify for the next stage. Let's go for a shocking finale based on the teams' scoring data.
Let's first look at the qualifying scenarios for Group 5:
Spain qualifies even with a draw, while with a win they are definitely first. He will move to the "16" even if he loses, provided that Costa Rica and Germany stay in the draw. If now Enrique's team loses and Germany wins, then the Iberians have the... cushion on goal difference, since it is currently at +8 by the Germans.
Japan hopes... for qualifying. With a win they are definitely in the final two, but with a loss they are definitely out. Beyond that, the draw does not definitely give them the ticket, since a possible victory for Germany will bring a tie and there you will... play with the goals and the attack. In the match between them, of course, which is the third criterion for the tie, the Japanese have the upper hand.
Costa Rica has to look for the... miracle and the victory over Germany will bring her qualification. If they lose they are definitely out, while with a draw they will want Spain to win the match against the Japanese. The heavy defeat by the Iberians in the premiership have created a big issue in Goal Difference.
Germany only wants victory to stay... alive, but it also needs Spain's victory against the Japanese. With a victory for the Asians, the Germans have to cover the goal difference to overtake the Spaniards, while with a draw in the other match Nacionalmanschaft will try to have a better Goal Difference and attack than the Japanese.
In Group 6 now, three teams are vying for qualification. Indifferent Canada that did not get a grade.
Croatia: With a win against Belgium they will definitely be first. With a draw it also qualifies, with a loss (and Morocco's victory over Canada) it is left out.
Morocco: Luck is in their hands. With a positive result against the indifferent Canada will win the ticket for the 16. Only if he loses will... entangle Morocco, since then it definitely needs a victory for Croatia against Belgium.
Belgium: They only need a win over Croatia to avoid the kazoo and move on to the next stage. A draw is probably not enough, since then morocco will be looking for a heavy defeat by Canada.
The program in detail:
17:00 Canada vs. Morocco (Group 6), (Al-Thumama Stadium, Doha)
Morocco aims to qualify against an indifferent opponent. But he can secure it even with a draw.
17:00 Croatia v Belgium (Group 6), (Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, Al-Rayyan)
Let's go for a match between the two teams, who want to qualify for the next stage. Croatia plays for two results as well as being favoured with a draw.
21:00 Japan – Spain (Group 5), (Khalifa International Stadium, Doha)
The Japanese with a victory qualify and go for another big surprise as they did in the premiere against Germany. The Spaniards also go through with a draw.
21:00 Costa Rica – Germany ( 5th group, (Al-Bayt Stadium, Al-Khor)
The Germans may be doing their duty. They also showed character against Spain after the shock of the premiere against Japan. The point is that they may win but they don't hold their luck in their hands, something we analyzed above
