What to Watch For:
The big teams to watch out for are Germany, Spain, France and England based on their current performance. In the upcoming matches the group B qualifying matches are very unpredictable since both the teams that have won in their past match are facing each other while those that lost are also facing each other. However, Germany appears to have an advantage since they have three more points as compared to their closest group competition.
Although for group C playoffs, Spain has shown greater potential by beating Ireland in the past match while Croatia and Italy had a draw, their match with Croatia might be tight given that Italy has an outstanding football performance and the two teams are tied on points. Group D matches are quite predictable given that the winners in the past matches are facing the losers; this brings surmounting anticipation as the two likely winners are also tied on points.
