Here are their predictions: host Russia will be defeated by Spain 3-1 in the first round; France will knockoff defending champions Germany in the finals; Belgium would defeat Brazil 2-0 in the second round; Germany would win every match beating both Costa Rica and Colombia before trampling Spain 3-1 in semi-finals; Spain would come in third knocking off Belgium 2-1 in the runner-up game.
“Using FIFA 18, and brand new ratings from the 2018 FIFA World Cup update, we ran a simulation of the tournament from the group stage all the way through to the final in Moscow,” EA says in a blog post.
EA also predicts that France’s Antoine Griezmann and Spain’s Isco would be in a tight race for the Golden Boot award, whereas Antoine Griezmann would be awarded the best player of the tournament. According to EA’s FIFA predictions, though Spain would be eliminated from the semifinals, goalkeeper David De Gea would still get the Golden Glove.
