Belgium v Wales tips – expect comfortable win for Red Devils

Belgium barely broke into a sweat when it came to qualifying for the 2020 European Championship and they will go into the summer tournament as one of the favourites to triumph, with Roberto Martinez having an amazing squad of players at his disposal.

Despite Eden Hazard’s time at Real Madrid not exactly going according to plan, the former Chelsea playmaker is still a key component when it comes to the national side, while Kevin de Bruyne has recently returned from injury to feature as part of a Manchester City team who are set to conquer England and maybe Europe.

Belgium clash with Wales in a World Cup qualifier on 24 March, with the Red Devils strong betting favourites to beat opponents who will be led into battle by another Real Madrid star in the form of Gareth Bale.

Are Belgium a Betting Banker for This Clash?

Belgium enjoyed a 100% Euro 2020 qualification record and it’s plausible that the same thing might happen when it comes to reaching the 2022 World Cup, with Wales and Czech Republic potentially left to battle it out for second place.

Martinez will certainly warn against complacency although the best betting odds you can get about a Belgian win in this clash is 2/7 and this indicates that the bookies are taking no chances about a team who land the spoils in the majority of their clashes.

It’s been several months since the team were last in action although Belgium won their previous four matches including a 2-0 win over England and then a 4-2 victory over Denmark in the Nations League, with Martinez’s men topping their section and the only glitch was a 2-1 reverse away to England.

There simply aren’t too many weaknesses when you assess the latest squad and the form of Romelu Lukaku has been excellent ever since he donned an international shirt, while the former Everton and Manchester United forward is enjoying a stellar season for Inter this season.

Can Gareth Bale Inspire Wales to a Positive Result?

The situation is somewhat difficult for Wales right now, despite the fantastic achievement of qualifying for Euro 2020, with manager Ryan Giggs still unable to take charge of the first team and it is falling to Robert Page to oversee affairs and train the players while his number one is kept away from proceedings.

The Reds finished second in their Euro 2020 qualifying group to go through to the tournament proper, although they were only able to win half of their eight matches and were in a fairly favourable section where the team narrowly fended off Slovakia and Hungary en route to qualifying.

It will have been pleasing for Wales fans to see Gareth Bale return to the UK and show some bright form for Tottenham Hotspur while on loan from Real Madrid, although the bottom line is that the Welsh are rank outsiders to win this clash in Leuven and you’re able to back them at 19/2 to win the game.

Aside from Bale, Ben Davies, Aaron Ramsey and Dan James are the only other players who play regularly at elite level, although young talented players such as Neco Williams and Ethan Ampadu hint at a brighter future.

What are the Best Bets for Belgium v Wales?

You won’t get rich betting on Belgium to beat Wales, although Martinez’s men can be backed on the Asian Handicap betting market and we like the Red Devils at around the even money football betting mark with a -1.5 goal deficit, meaning that they would need to win the clash by two goals or more.

We’re fairly sure that the home side will be able to manage this and it should be borne in mind that they scored forty goals during Euro 2020 qualification and conceded on just three occasions. A Belgium win to nil is backable at 5/4 with some of the leading bookmakers.
