Brazil v Belgium Betting Offers and Tips – End of the Line for Belgium?
Belgium won a thrilling second round clash with Japan, to set up Friday’s meeting with Brazil.
The Red Devils were very nearly heading home after just four games, despite having ambitions of winning the tournament. Can they keep those hopes alive against the tournament favourites Brazil on Friday night? Ahead of the biggest game of the round, we have picked out a couple of betting tips on what should be a great game.
Preview – Brazil Face First Big Test
Brazil’s victory over Mexico means they’re now just 3/1 with BetVictor to win the tournament. They’ve been cut to 21/20 favourites with William Hill to take a victory in Friday night’s big game, while Belgium sit out at 13/5 with Coral ahead of the game. However, could that be undervaluing the Belgians, despite their struggles in a 3-2 win over Japan?
The Red Devils come in to this game as Brazil’s first big test. We’ve seen a running theme of sides starting a little scared of Brazil, frustrating them for long periods and then finally giving in at the death.
Mexico did that, despite looking like they had a hangover from their 3-0 thumping by Sweden. We can see a high pressing Belgian side doing well in this fixture, and they’ll fancy themselves to cause problems against any defence. This is certainly the biggest test Brazil have had, in a pretty straightforward opening so far.
Stats, Injuries and Suspensions
Brazil come here without Casemiro and Douglas Costa. They are suspended and injured respectively, as the Real Madrid man picked up a second booking last time out. With replacements ready to step in, that shouldn’t affect the Brazilian set up too much. Meanwhile, Belgium are at full strength, with Vincent Kompany now getting minutes under his belt. He’s set to feature at the heart of the Red Devils’ defence once again.
Brazil v Belgium – Goals Likely With Belgium Flying
Brazil come in as favourites, but they’ve been a little underwhelming to date. The five time winners are frontrunners by default at a tournament which has seen the biggest sides wobble. Belgium are still seen as an outsider, despite their brilliant array of talent. They’ve scored the most goals of any side in Russia, averaging three per game. Brazil are getting goals themselves, so this could be a thrilling encounter. Over 2.5 goals does seem like great value at solid odds of 21/20 with 888Sport.
We also like the look of a 2-2 draw here, with Belgium packing enough firepower to match Brazil blow for blow. The Samba stars have looked beatable at the back, while their slow starts give Belgium the chance to cause problems. With that in mind, a high scoring draw seems like value at 16/1 with Bet365.
If you disagree with our verdict then you have a great option of course. So, if the game won’t be a draw, will you opt for Brazil at 40/1 or Belgium at 70/1?
