Greece – Belgium
Greece welcomes Belgium in an important clash from Group H of the World Cup qualifiers in Europe.
Belgium are the convincing leader in this group after 7 rounds being played. The Red Devils are ahead of everyone else with 19 points won so far. They have a healthy six points advantage in front of Greece, who are currently second with 13 points. From seven rounds so far, Belgium made only one wrong step – in the 1-1 draw exactly against Greece.
Except of this game, Roberto Martinez’ squad is really dominant in this group. Belgium have a record of six wins and one draw from seven matches and a goal difference of 33-2, which is fairly impressive. In their last game they thrashed the outsider Gibraltar with 9-0.
Greece on the other hand are fighting for the second place in this group with Bosnia-Herzegovina and Cyprus. They currently have two points advantage in front of the former and three points more than Cyprus. They are in a good position to win the second place, but they still need to continue winning points. As much as possibe.
How we said, Greece are the only team in this group who managed to “steal” points from Belgium. They did it on away ground, so now they will have the support of their passionate fans. Will this help them to win some more points off Belgium? We shall wait and see.
Of course, because of quality, Belgium are a slight favourite in this match. It’s not a surprise that they dominate this group in such a convincing way. But you shall never underrestimate Greece. They are a team who can win points against every opponent, especially at home. If you have decide to bet on this game, do it with some caution. This is our advice.
