It would be a mistake not to bet on Brazil making it far in the competition, after all, the competition is held in their own back yard. They will have to see off ten CONMEBOL countries that represent their continent along with an extra two teams from the AFC in Japan and Qatar. The group seeding has made sure that the powerhouses of South American football avoid one another in the group stages. That means teams like Chile, Colombia, Argentina, Uruguay and hosts Brazil are more likely to meet each other in the knockout stages.
