Belgium vs England | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Belgium and England will meet for the second time at the 2018 World Cup this summer, with the duo set to battle it out for third place on Saturday afternoon. The European rivals will both be looking to put the disappointment of losing in the semi-finals behind them, however motivation is unlikely to be high ahead of kick-off this weekend.
Both Belgium and England will look to ensure that they end their World Cup campaigns with a win when they meet in Saint Petersburg this weekend, with the former Group G rivals set to meet for the second time in just a matter of weeks. However, with managers Roberto Martinez and Gareth Southgate potentially making wholesale changes to their starting eleven’s once more, a close encounter is expected. For those still unsure of who to back ahead of kick-off, it is well worth checking out our top betting tip below. However, let’s first take a closer look at the two teams, starting with Belgium.
Belgium News & Form
Belgium lost out to France in the semi-finals, with Martinez’s men unable to come back from a goal down, despite dominating proceedings during the 90 minutes. It remains to be seen as to how the Red Devils will line up this weekend, with the likes of Youri Tielemans, Michy Batshuayi and Leander Dendoncker all searching for rare starts for Belgium. Romelu Lukaku is still in with a chance of earning the golden boot award in Russia, with the Manchester United man having four goals to his name to date.
England News & Form
England were undone by an extra-time winner from Croatia in their semi-final clash, with Gareth Southgate’s side having missed out on the opportunity to reach their first final since 1966. The Three Lions are likely to offer playing opportunities to those who have not featured in Russia so far this summer, meaning that the likes of Phil Jones, Gary Cahill, Danny Welbeck and Jack Butland could well feature.
Belgium vs England Head to Head
The two nations have met a total of 22 times in the past, with Belgium having just three wins to their name from such encounters. England have won 15 of their previous meetings, as well as registering four draws in the process. A single goal from former Manchester United man Adnan Januzaj was enough to hand Belgium all three points earlier in the tournament, meaning that it is perhaps Belgium who have the slight edge ahead of kick-off this weekend.
Belgium vs England Odds and Predictions
With Belgium having won the encounter between the two sides earlier this summer, it comes as little surprise that it is the Red Devils who are the narrow favourites this weekend with the majority of major online bookmakers. Belgium are available to back at odds of 6/5 with William Hill to win inside 90 minutes, while England are priced at 23/10 on the same platform. Meanwhile, a draw after 90 minutes is also available at 11/4 with Paddy Power.
