Is it Spain or Germany's Year? | The Data Day Live | World Cup Preview: Group E and F

Our 2022 World Cup preview series continues on The Data Day Live by taking a closer look at Groups E and F.

We have called up some very special guests for this episode as Albert Valor from Opta Jose and Linus Braun from Opta Franz give us their opinions on why both Spain and Germany have the chance to go far in the 2022 World Cup. Alongside their insights – Matt Furniss, Duncan Alexander and Graham Bell dove a little deeper into Group F where some of the panel believes it could feature some of the must-watch games of the event.

Our 2022 World Cup preview series ends on Friday when we look forward to Groups G and H.
