Reasons for betting on Greece vs Belgium tip
We are 100% sure that many bookmakers around the world were celebrating the Greek national team after the game with Estonia. In a match which meant so much to them, they didn’t win. Now they have to do it against Belgium. The guests in this event have the most efficient attack in the whole qualifiers, with 33 goals scored so far. Which is pretty astonishing we have to add.
It will be their chance to get even with the Greeks, for the unexpected draw in Brussels.
At one point everything was going well for the Greeks, and many of the experts were predicting that they are going to have the last word in this group. But as always they manage to spoil the things. After 3 straight opening victories, Greece played 4 draws in a row. The one which caused the most damage was the most recent against Estonia, 0-0. Now they will have to fight to preserve the second spot, which might lead to the playoffs. They cannot afford to lose against Belgium, because Bosnia and Herzegovina are waiting to jump them over. 7 previous games in which Greece participated, ended with under 2.5 goals. As always, they prefer low-efficient games with a slow tempo where they rely on counter-attacks and set pieces. The biggest blow for them will be the absence of Kostas Mitroglou who is the primary weapon of this team.
The Red Devils are coming to Athens to finish the job in these qualifications. If they managed to win, guests will secure the first place in Group H. The only game in which they haven’t won during this cycle, was the one against Greece in Brussels, 1-1. In 9 previous encounters, Belgium didn’t lose, and on 6 occasions during that period, they scored 3 or more goals. Their attacking part of the team is impressive, and all 10 players on the field are participating in actions. After three games away from home, Belgium hasn’t allowed a single goal. On the other hand, Red Devils scored 11 times. Two of the best Belgian scorers in the qualifications are Romelu Lukaku with 9 goals and Dries Mertens with 5.
Head to head matches
It was very intense in Brussels in the first leg where we saw two red cards for the Greek players. The guests in that contest, had a lead after Kostas Mitroglou netted in the 46th minute of the game. Eventually, Romelu Lukaku saved the hosts with a late goal, one minute before the end of the regular part of the match.
Following this clash, the Greeks were claiming that the referee Felix Brych intentionally tried to help the Belgians.
Prediction for Greece vs Belgium tip
We are sure that both sides have a lot of motive before this game. The Greeks want the revenge for the injustice in Brussels. Meanwhile, Belgium intends to prove that they’re better.
Our first choice is a moderate number of goals. Between 2 and 3, is the maximum we are going to see from this event. Greeks will try to slow the game down, and on the other hand, we believe that the Belgians are not going to rush in.
Because of this, our second suggestion is going to be a draw at the half time.
