Belgium vs Tunisia Predictions

A second-half Romelu Lukaku brace gave Belgium the perfect start to the 2018 World Cup as Roberto Martinez’ men blew away Panama 3-0. The Belgians look one of the World Cup’s most dynamic outfits and Tunisia should meet the same fate as Panama did when they clash. Punters can find Belgium to win at 1.28 with William Hill.

Match Odds

Belgium vs Tunisia Score Prediction

Against England, Tunisia showed how resilient they can be and have the ability to withstand sustained pressure. Belgium won’t run away with this but have the likes of Hazard and De Bruyne to unlock the defence of the North Africans. A 2-0 Belgium win with Bet365 is great value at 6.50

Over/Under Prediction

Belgium have all the answers up front and don’t battle to score goals but the same can’t be said for Tunisia. Apart from winning a rather dubious penalty, Tunisia never really looked like scoring against England with their strength coming in the form of defence. Under 2.5 Goals is the bet to make with Crownbet at odds of 2.08.

Both Teams To Score Prediction

Belgium do play an expansive brand of football that has the potential to leave them a bit exposed at the back. Of late, Martinez’ men have tightened up at the back and Tunisia should be kept at bay. Both teams not to score is priced at 1.67 with Betstar.

Group Standings

Belgium and England are looking like the early front-runners to progress to the round of 16 in Group G. Wins over both Tunisia and Panama respectively in the next round of matches and the English and Belgians will book their place in the knock-out stages.

Statistics

  • Belgium have kept five clean sheets in their last six matches
  • Belgium have scored in nine out of their last ten matches
  • Belgium to score exactly two goals is 3.25 with Betfair
  • Tunisia have conceded in all of their last four games

Odds

 

Belgium and Tunisia meet in 2018 FIFA World Cup Group G action, with a knockout round spot potentially on-the-line for the victorious team. The match’s outcome may decide which of the two form teams progress through to knockout play from Group G’s four quality sides.

Head-to-Head Record

The two teams have 3 times before in a full international;

  • 1992 – Tunisia 2 Belgium 1
  • 2002 – Tunisia 1 Belgium 1
  • 2014 – Tunisia 0 Belgium 1

World Cup Qualifiers

Belgium

World Number 5 ranked team, Belgium, were never in doubt of not qualifying for the World Cup. The Belgians came through UEFA-Group-H unbeaten, winning the group by a massive 9 points.

Belgium played attacking football, scoring plenty of goals (43) along the way to qualification, including;

  • Belgium 8 Estonia 1
  • Belgium 4 Bosnia-and-Herzegovina 3
  • Belgium 4 Cyprus 0 and;
  • Belgium 2 Greece 1

If coach Roberto Martinez has organised the defence of this star-studded line-up enough to overcome the likes of Germany or Brazil, Belgium are a serious title-threat.

Top Goal Scorers in Qualifiers

Romelu Lukaku

Eden Hazard

Tunisia

The Tunisians easily won their African qualifying group and going undefeated along the way into the bargain (albeit in perhaps the weakest African group along with DR Congo, Libya and Guinea).

 

Tunisia are Africa’s highest ranked team at the World Cup, standing at Number 14 in the FIFA World rankings. Make no mistake, this Tunisian side has the quality to spring surprises on the most fancied of opponents and indeed, they are a much better side than the one quoted at $401 to win the World Cup.

 

World Cup warm-up results included;

  • Tunisia 1 Iran 0
  • Tunisia 1 Costa Rica 0
  • Tunisia 2 Portugal 2
  • Tunisia 2 Turkey 2
