World Cup Betting TipsAfter Italy, which team will make it to Brazil?

 

Italy

A successful penalty courtesy of striker Mario Balotelli sends the Italian squad to Brazil. With the victory against Czech Republic, the Gli Azzurri is now freed from the burden and pressure of making it to the most awaited football tournament.
Yet, for a dose of formality and an opportunity to test their form, the squad still, needs to face Denmark and Armenia.

Bulgaria

Pitted against Armenia and Czech Republic, the Bulgarian squad will need to embark on a tedious journey in order to seal their place for the play-offs. The “fatigue factor,” will certainly produce a significant effect on the squad’s playing style, Nevertheless, the fact that they only need a single win to make it to the play-off should give them a dose of inspiration. Moreover, such victory will also end the World Cup attempts of Czech Republic and Armenia.

Denmark

Denmark remains a strong contender for the play-offs spot. Trailing behind Bulgaria, which is just a point ahead of them, the Red and White needs to secure victory over Italy and Malta and hope that Bulgaria loses one of its matches.

Czech Republic

Czech Republic’s play-off feat is still, possible. But this will be a hard-fought victory. First they need to win all of their matches—one against Malta and the other against Bulgaria. The battle against Bulgaria alone, makes their chances of qualifying for the play-offs, slim. Moreover, they can only wish that Bulgaria suffers from a defeat—either in their hands or in another opponent. But then again, this scenario is less likely to happen.
