FIFA World Cup

Football: 4 Teams predicted to win this week.

1. Italy

Northern Ireland vs Italy

Last time out, Northern Ireland beat Lithuania 1-0 to break a three-match losing streak and will look to finish their qualifying campaign on a strong note.

Italy was beaten to a 1-1 draw by Switzerland, meaning they will have to match or exceed their performance on Monday night. The European champions won the reverse encounter 2-0, and they should be confident of picking up three crucial points.

Italy hasn't been terrific since winning Euro 2020, but the Azzurri should be able to get all three points here.

2. England

San Marino vs England

San Marino's seventh World Cup qualification setback came after a 4-0 loss to Hungary on Friday night. This season, the bottom-placed team in Group I has conceded 36 goals.

England simply needs to avoid loss to clinch the title, but they will be confident of cruising to victory here. In their last five encounters with San Marino, the Three Lions have scored 29 goals while conceding none.

This should be an easy win for England.

3. Israel

Israel vs Faroe Islands

Israel will aim to finish third in Group F after a run of three losses in a row destroyed their chances of qualifying for the final two.

Faroe Islands have lost seven of their nine games, with their lone victory coming against Moldova in the bottom half of the table.

Israel may have battled for form in recent game weeks in qualification, but they should be too strong for the Faroe Islands.

4. Poland

Poland vs Hungary

With a 4-1 win against Andorra on Friday, Poland kept the pressure on England, but with England facing San Marino, it'll take a miracle for the hosts to finish first.

Hungary is coming off a 4-0 win against San Marino and will be looking to jump Albania into third place in this match.

Poland, on the other hand, is a tougher opponent than San Marino, and the home team is the favorite to win.
