Qualification is assured for Belgium as three points is all they need, and the visit of San Marino will prove to be nothing more than a walk in the park for Martinez’s Red Devils.
ou cannot back anything other than the home win in this game considering the visitors are yet to win a game in this Euro 2020 qualifying campaign. That is why the Red Devils are such a short price with online betting sites for the win so jump on a over goals bet instead. Belgium have netted eight goals in their last two qualifying games but more importantly have put 12 past San Marino in their last two head to heads.
OVER 5.5 GOALS
Sticking with the over goals theme (it really is one of the best ways to get value with popular sportsbooks), then it is worth getting in on the act early ready for a half time pay out. The Red Devils netted three times in the first half in their last qualifying game (against Scotland) and have scored a total of nine first half goals in their last five games (all without conceding too).
OVER 2.5 GOALS FIRST HALF
When a game is so one sided, a great way to level the playing somewhat is with a relatively close to 50/50 bet. Betting on the total number of goals scored in this game to be even is a good way to go as only once in seven previous meetings have Belgium scored a total number of goals that was not an even number.
TOTAL GOALS EVEN
Head to Head
Seven times the pair have met prior to this game and unsurprisingly, seven times Belgium have taken the win. The most recent was a 4-0 Euro 2020 qualifier win in San Marino in which Roberto Martinez’s side wiped the floor clean with the minnows to launch to the top of Group I where they have remained all through out with six wins from six in qualifying so far.
Belgium to win to nil
The home win is the only way you can go in this one. Seven times the pair have met, and seven times Belgium have won but perhaps more damning is that the San Marino minnows are yet to even score a goal in the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign whilst conceding a whopping 28 goals in their six games so far. A clean sheet and the win for the home side is inevitable in this one. Sorry San Marino.
