The match is over.
Score: 0-4.

Belgium look like they will qualify from this group with ease – and the likelihood of San Marino causing any problems here are very remote.

Our Betting Tips

It is very difficult finding any betting market that holds any value at all in this match as Belgium are overwhelming favourites. It doesn’t always happen but some teams rack up the goal difference when they face San Marino – and Belgium are the sort of side who will enjoy scoring a lot of goals.

TOTAL GOALS OVER 7.5

When teams score a lot of goals it usually means that the opposing defence is not up to scratch. It is going to be difficult for the San Marino back line to keep up with the stars of Belgium – so don’t be surprised if a penalty is awarded at some point here.

BELGIUM TO SCORE A PENALTY

There is no way that San Marino will win this game – and it just as unlikely that the massive underdogs will even score a goal. But it is still an away game for Roberto Martinez and his squad, so if the goals don’t come quite as frequently as expected there may be some value in the Asian Handicap market.

  • San Marino have only ever won one game in their entire history. The 1-0 victory over Liechtenstein came in a friendly in 2004 and was their 65th match.
  • Belgium have only lost twice since the start of the 2016/17 season. Once to Switzerland in the recent Nations League campaign – and once against France in the World Cup final in 2018.
  • San Marino used to have the smallest population of any UEFA country before Gibraltar was admitted in 2013. It is still waiting for its first ever competitive victory.
  • Belgium has only conceded one goal in this qualifying campaignit came in the 3-1 home win over Russia. Their only game away from home so far ended in a 2-0 win in Cyprus.

Our Prediction for San Marino vs Belgium

Easy Win for Belgium

This is one of the easiest games in European football to predict. San Marino have never won a competitive game – and Belgium have some of the very best players in the world pull on the famous red shirts. It should only be a matter of just how many goals Roberto Martinez’ men score as they look to qualify from Group I without much trouble at all.
