Belgium V Canada

The FIFA World Cup Group F, continues as Belgium takes on Canada in the late game of the day. Belgium have disappointed in previous FIFA World Cup tournaments as they got knocked out in the semi-final against France in Russia, with many supporters tipping them to go all the way with their myriad of talent. On the other hand, Canada reach the group stage of the FIFA World Cup for the first time in 36 years, making it only the second time in their history to make it to the finals of the World Cup. 

Belgium are ranked second in the FIFA rankings whilst Canada are in 41st position in the overall ranking showing a discrepancy between the sides when they meet at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium. This will be the first time these sides will play against each other.

A positive that we might take from this Belgium side is that not much has changed in terms of coaching staff and players since the last FIFA World Cup. Form for the Belgian Red Devils have been good, nothing over the top but steady enough to contend in the knockout stages of this tournament one might say. In the UEFA Nations League, in the past six games, they lost only two games, both against the Netherlands and winning three drawing against Wales. During these six games, they conceded seven goals and scored 11. Eden Hazard is fit for the World Cup but it will be an interesting to see if Roberto Martinez includes him into his squad given that the former Chelsea player struggled with his fitness. 

It will be important for Belgium to get off to a winning start against Canada as that would settle some nerves for the team. Being a heavily favoured team coming into the game might not always work that well as the pressure is always on the team to do well. Will the Belgian Red Devils have what it takes to perform once again on the grand stand? 

A correct score win of 2-0 for Belgium is priced at 25/4 (7.25) with Romelu Lukaku to score anytime during the match at 3/1 (2.00). 


A huge achievement for the current squad to make it to the FIFA World Cup. Now it’s time to compete with the best teams around the world which is what any player would want. You need to compete with the best to become the best. Being the underdog has not phased the Canadian players at all, as they have been pushed aside by most people and Adidas as they did not design a kit for them. 

In football, we all love an underdog story and we all love to see a small nation going up against a top team and doing well. At the end of the day, it’s eleven players against eleven and everything can happen with the right mentality and the right work ethic. Something that Canada players have showed throughout the qualification to the World Cup despite faced with injuries to key players such as Alphonso Davies. He is again doubtful if he plays in the match which is a huge blow for his team but the players replacing him are more than capable of doing a well enough job. 

If you believe in fairytales, we have some of the best odds to add more value to your ambitious bets. A correct score win of 1-0 for Canada is priced at 16/1 (17.00)
