Each team has its own strength number. Before FIFA 2018, these are found from a synthesis of a set of football experts. Each expert has been given a unique set of 50 hypothetical matches and asked to fill out three equally likely outcomes of each match. As FIFA 2018 progresses, the team strength is more and more decided by the actual matches and less and less from the experts.

We would like to thank all our experts:

Joachim Fiksdal

Olav Nenseter

Steffen Sture Olsen

Arne Litlere

Petter Morstad

Håvard Skånlund
