2018 World Cup simulations (18 November 2016)

The usual 10000 simulations, based on the current Elo ratings and including results up to 15 November 2016.

The play-offs are also simulated, with a slight twist: I used Elo ratings to seed the UEFA play-off draw.


Previous simulations (14 October 2016).

Taking into account the actual group distribution, these are the teams most likely to make it to Russia:

Congo DR and South Africa replace Tunisia and Senegal. The race is very close in their groups.

AFC: Iran, Korea Republic, Japan, Australia
CAF: Egypt, Nigeria, Côte d'Ivoire, Congo DR, South Africa
CONCACAF: Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, USA
CONMEBOL: Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, Argentina, Colombia
UEFA: Germany, England, France, Belgium, Spain, Poland, Switzerland, Italy, Croatia, Republic of Ireland, Portugal, Netherlands, Iceland
