For context, he's probably the most hated politician in those circles due to his work for strict measures during the pandemic (which was how he got the job in the first place).

That's true. Still, opening matches are usually a bigger deal, and in 2018, matches like Japan vs Senegal and Nigeria vs Iceland had way more viewers. Also, the game had ~250,000 viewers more than Morocco vs Iran in 2018 (17pm on a Friday), but the latter was also watched by an additional 1.7 million people at public viewing events while there was no public viewing for the Qatar match.

Nah, the episodes are standalone. New teams are also introduced pretty often, and only some of them have something akin to an arch. There are also huge differences between the episodes of each team, with some having more of a comedy approach, some being thrillers and some being action films (like the Till Schweiger ones back in the day), and depending of the popularity of each team / city, the ratings are different (the one in question was from Dresden, which is on the air since 2016 with now 14 episodes).
