Group 5


Group 5 is arguably the most competitive group of the nine. Spain were the clear favourites to qualify at the start and they’ve shown value in their short price tag by maintaing a 100% winning record, with six straight victories. One more victory for Del Bosque’s side and they will be guaranteed a second place finish at worst. Another two wins would see them finish the group in first place and seal qualification for South Africa. We don’t expect Torres & Co to take their foot off the gas just yet with qualification just a stones throw away.


The battle for second is starting to hot up with Bosnia springing a surprise and notching up four wins from their opening six qualifiers. Bosnia have won all three of their home fixtures whilst managing to embarrass Belgium in front of their home fans, beating the Belgians 2-4. That victory amongst the three other wins has put them in a healthy position and Bosnia have gone four points clear in second position. Turkey look their biggest threat, especially as Turkey beat Bosnia earlier in qualifying. However, that win came in Turkey and they will now have to dash Bosnias 100% record at home thus far if they are to have any chance of robbing the Bosnian’s of their second spot.


Belgium have been extremely poor in qualifying and we’ve all but discounted their chances of a revival. Estonia were never fancied to mount a challenge for a top two finish and their point tally of 5 points comes as no surprise. Armenia are rock-bottom and currently have just the solitary point to their name.
