As we get to the business end of the competition this weekend, just eight teams remain in the bid to become 2023 Rugby World Cup champions.
On Saturday, Wales and Argentina will do battle before Ireland look to win a quarter-final for the very first time against the All Blacks, in a repeat of 2019’s fixture between the two.
And on Sunday, England will be seeking revenge on Fiji for the warm-up defeat when they meet, before hosts France do battle with the reigning champions, South Africa in the later kick-off.
So the @OptaJonny 'AI Supercomputer' has predicted the percentage chance each team in the quarter-finals has of winning the World Cup.
Their predictions take into account recent form, historical success, and more.

According to the stat experts over in OPTA, Ireland remain the most ‘probable’ winners at 21.4%, with France just behind at 20.2%.
Fiji have the least chance of going all the way, according to the ‘AI Supercomputer’, with Argentina not far behind them.
