Both teams didn’t have to go full speed to advance from the group stage. Tunisia and Panama are both not really high caliber teams and therefore easy prey for two of the best teams in the world. England is finally looking like a real team with a lot of young offensive talent. Harry Kane is the undoubted leader of the team and a striker world-class teams like Real Madrid or PSG are looking for.
England cruised into the second round with a 6-1 against Panama where they only compete during the first half. The second half was used to rest and rightfully so – more important tasks are lying ahead.
Belgium on the other hand can definitely keep up with England’s most recent results. Romelu Lukaku is currently tied with Cristiano Ronaldo in the race for the Golden Boot with 4 goals each – only Harry Kane has scored 1 more goal thus far. Belgium looked absolutely impressive during their last two, but it seems that some key players might be missing in their match against England.
Belgium manager Roberto Martinez speaking about the injury issue: “It’s [Romelu Lukaku’s] external ankle ligament of his left foot. It was a knock that he had late in the first half and he tried to play through it and he couldn’t. He’s going to be assessed and then we’ll find out a bit more in 48 hours.” However, Michy Batshuayi is still a decent replacement who is capable of scoring goals as he has already proven for Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund.
The first betting option which comes to our mind when looking at these teams is the over/under goals betting market. Pinnacle offers 2.17 odds for over 2.5 goals which seems reasonable. Both teams are mainly relying on ball possession and their offensive strength. They got world-class strikers and fast and unpredictable midfielders and wingers who are not only able to deliver a deadly pass but can also score themselves.
If you are looking for a more conservative option, you might be interested in betting on England not to lose this match. Tonybet is currently offering odds of 1.45 on the England Double Chance betting market which is not highly attractive but not bad either. The real value is offered in the over/under betting markets for this match.
