The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Gambling, studies, statistics and numbers are all part of a parallel play in the World Cup. This time, a group of German scientists performed 100,000 math-based drills and ultimately placed Brazil as the next world champion.
The study was unveiled in Cologne, one of the oldest cities in Germany, where a group that belongs to the Institute of Cognitive Research and the Sports Game Village University developed a technique to simulate complete tournaments with mathematician, Fabian Wunderlich .
“FIFA ranks past performance of the teams, but the shares are future-oriented performances and take into account the advantage of local or current information from the schools, such as injuries,” he said.
The calculation model concluded that Brazil will win the World Cup with a probability of 20.4%, beating Argentina in the final. Other favorites backed by the scientific model are Argentina at 14.7%, Spain with 12.6% and Germany at 12.3%.
The World begins next Thursday and only time and the unpredictability of football will determine the next king of soccer.
