Scotland are bottom of Group A after picking up two points from twelve available, and it would take a miracle for them to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
But Wolves player Berra believes that manager Levein, whose employment has come under increasing pressure, has simply been unlucky in his results in qualifying thus far.
"No matter the level, if you're not getting results then you'll be under pressure," Berra told the Daily Record.
"But the boys love turning up, love working with the manager. Sometimes at the top level it's the small amounts that make the difference.
"It's not like we're not gelling. Maybe we're just not getting the luck.
"I don't think we're playing terribly, we never really had a lot of the ball against Belgium to do that.
"I don't even think we played badly against Wales either last week, we just never got the roll of the dice."
Berra also declared his opinion that Belgium, Scotland's conquerors on Tuesday, would be one of the favourites for the next World Cup.
"This Belgian side have world class players.
"When they go to the World Cup they will be right up there with the favourites.
"France, Italy and the like are big nations but I think Belgium are up there, perhaps even better."
Berra has 26 caps for his country, scoring two goals.
