This game between Belgium and Russia could well decide which of these sides tops Group H at the Brazil World Cup. Read on for our thoughts on the game, along with our betting tips and live odds comparison to ensure you always get the best price.

Belgium were much-fancied coming into the World Cup given the amazing depth of talent at their disposal, with stars such as Thibaut Courtois, Vincent Kompany, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku forming a strong spine. However, they only scraped past Algeria in their first game, coming from behind to win 2-1 with both goals coming from substitutes, and more will be required here.

Russia also had to come from behind, Fabio Capello’s team earning a 1-1 draw with South Korea that leaves the group in the balance, although a draw or better here would see Russia given a great a chance to progress to the World Cup Round of 16.

Belgium are strong favourites, priced at betting odds of 21/20 with Bet365 and others whilst Russia are out at 10/3 with Coral and the draw is 5/2 with most firms.

Our betting tip here is a simple one: Belgium to make it two wins in a row by beating Capello’s men, with 2-1 the likely score. Belgium’s win will have settled some nerves and we think they can grow into the tournament – starting with another win here.
