Octopus Paulo Junior, resident of Sea Life Porto, once again made predictions for the World Cup in Qatar.
For the game that pits Portugal and Uruguay against each other, Paulo Jr., the octopus, predicts a win for the team of corners after being sure of the result with Ghana.
To make the prediction, the octopus finds ” containers of mussels (its favourite snack) with the symbols of the opposing teams” withinside the aquarium. The box it chooses to feed will correspond to the winner of the match. The outcome of the game will be a draw, explains Sea Life Porto.
It should be remembered that an ancestor of Paulo Jr., the octopus Paul, is best known for his predictions of games in the 2010 Soccer World Cup from the Seaside Oberhausen Aquarium in Germany.
This particular sample ended the tournament with “firm credits”, as it predicted Spain’s victory against the Netherlands in the final, as well as Germany’s victory over Uruguay in the games for third and fourth place, and against Spain. He also predicted the defeat of Germany semi-finals.
The Portuguese football team faces Uruguay in the second round of Group H of the 2022 World Cup today, and a win would already guarantee the team’s qualification for the round of 16 of the competition.
