World Cup Group E Odds

Spain to win Group E - 5/6

Spain are just favourites to win the group

World Cup 2022

Spain are the current favourites to bank the top spot in Group E at the 2022 edition. Los Rojos have a talented young squad and will look to put recent poor World Cup performances behind them. A semi-final at last year’s European Championships gives them plenty of encouragement.

Germany - Evens

Germany to win Group E - 1/1

A short price, but not favourites, Germany are second best

World Cup 2022

Germany cruised through their qualification campaign to reach the World Cup Finals. After a shock exit in the 2018 World Cup group stage, the Germans will be keen to put on a strong show, and it should be a two-horse race between themselves and Spain for the top spot.

Japan - 12/1

Japan to win Group E - 12/1

Could Japan cause a shock in Group E

World Cup 2022

The odds of Japan getting out of Group E appear slim at best. While they are in their seventh consecutive World Cup, the Blue Samurai will likely have to beat either Spain or Germany to have a chance of making progress. They’ll do well to finish above third.

Costa Rica - 55/1

Costa Rica to win Group E - 55/1

A huge price to get the job done, Costa Rica look set to struggle

World Cup 2022

The Group E outsiders in the latest World Cup odds are Costa Rica. They had to come through an inter-confederation playoff to get to Qatar 2022. Costa Rica managed only one point at the last World Cup - so the wooden spoon is likely.

Group E World Cup 2022 Team Profiles

Spain

Spain and Germany are two former World Cup winners in this group and should reach the knockout stages. However, since landing the 2010 title in South Africa, subsequent World Cup finishes by Spain have been below par. They were dumped out in the 2014 group stage and then in Round 16 at the 2018 tournament.

The Spanish leaned heavily on their younger players during the 2022 UEFA Nations League matches. There’s a talented young squad with Rodri, Ferran Torres and Gavi, while the experienced heads of Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba will be crucial.

Germany

The World Cup history of Germany needs no introduction, and they picked up their fourth title as recently as the 2014 edition. However, there was a massive upset at the 2018 World Cup when they failed to get out of a relatively weak group.

Germany have the pick of the form heading into the World Cup. But they are second favourites to win this group. Their head-to-head record against Spain isn’t terrific, with just one victory in their last seven against them.

Hansi Flick’s Germany shouldn’t have any trouble getting out of the group this time, regardless of what happens against Spain.

Japan

The Blue Samurai didn’t win their qualification group to reach the World Cup, finishing runners-up to Saudi Arabia. In their previous six appearances at the FIFA World Cup, Japan have failed to make it past the Round of 16.

In those previous appearances, they’ve alternated between a Group Stage exit and a Round of 16 exit. If the trend follows, they aren’t reaching the knockouts in 2022. Even ignoring that trend, it’s hard to see Japan, who have many European-based players, getting into the top two.

Costa Rica

Costa Rica were fourth in CONCACAF qualification. That put them into an intercontinental playoff against New Zealand, winning 1-0. During their qualification campaign, Los Ticos did claim match wins over Canada and the United States, both of whom qualified ahead of them. However, most of their squad is domestic-based, and it will be a battle for Costa Rica not to finish bottom.

World Cup Group E Predictions

Spain vs Germany on matchday 2 of Group E action is the big one to look forward to. Spain are 7/5 favourites to win that match, and the recent head-to-head, including their 2020 Nations League meetings, points toward a Spanish victory.

Spain to beat Germany - 7/5 (27th November 7pm)

Spain are fancied to beat their nearest rivals

At 7/5 a £10 bet would return £24

World Cup 2022

It’s one of those 2022 World Cup groups where there doesn’t appear to be a glimmer of an upset. Instead, Spain and Germany should occupy the top two spots and the 5/6 on Spain to land the top spot looks like a reasonable option.

World Cup 2022

A Spain - Germany straight forecast would therefore also be an option. As for the wooden spoon of Group E? That’s probably Costa Rica as their record against Japan is only D1 L3.
