Belgium can secure a place in the round of sixteen with three points in their weekend fixture against Tunisia in Group G at the World Cup. belgium opened with a comfortable enough win over minnows Panama and given how negative Tunisia were in their opening defeat against England, our Belgium v Tunisia predictions are expecting nothing less than another win for the Red Devils.

Belgium News and Form

Belgium had a bit of a slow start to their game against Panama but they got to the final whistle with a 3-0 win under their belt in the end after improving in the second half. Romelu Lukaku scored twice in the game and the big man is up as the 12/5 first goalscorer favourite with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 20th, 2018 at 9:29 p.m.). This is a decent chance for Belgium to push on and get more goals and they have been in good scoring form lately as well. Tunisia are likely to sit back and invite pressure on themselves and Belgium are blessed with a lot of attacking power and creativity which should prise open the defence of the Africans.

If Belgium get the three points then that puts them through to the next round and that would just leave a clash with England to come to settle top spot. In our Belgium v Tunisia predictions a Belgium to win to nil option at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 20th, 2018 at 9:29 p.m.) which looks very generous. As well as having scored at least three goals in four for their last five games, Belgium have shipped just the one goal in their last six games, winning five of those. It wasn’t a great performance overall against Panama to be fair, but they should be more settled in this one.

Tunisia News and Form

Tunisia didn’t get out of the starting gates against England and slipped to a 2-1 defeat with that scoreline flattering them. They could have been heavily behind at the halftime break, and their slightly contentious penalty was really their only threat on the England goal all match. Ahead of the World Cup they played out 2-2 draws with Portugal and Turkey, but they have now lost their last two games, a friendly against Spain and then that opener against England. So that’s is back to back one goal margin defeats they have lost. Belgium to win by a one-goal margin is at 12/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 20th, 2018 at 9:29 p.m.). Are Tunisia likely to do anything different than what they did against England? Are they likely to come out of their shell and attack? It’s not too probable really and they may not get the chance to as Belgium will keep the ball from them. There just wasn’t the attacking interest from Tunisia there and both teams not to score at bet365 is at 8/13 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 20th, 2018 at 9:29 p.m.). They do actually need to come out and look for three points but getting them is going to be difficult.

Belgium v Tunisia Predictions

We would expect a win for Belgium to crop up in this one as they have the talent in their ranks to find a way to punish a side that are likely to sit back. Tunisia took a really poor approach to their opening game and would have to come out an attack if they want to keep their campaign alive, however, if they did that would leave them more vulnerable.
