Belgium vs Wales Tips and Prediction
It is fair to argue that Wales have reached new heights under Robert Page during a time when they have won a return to the World Cup Finals and spent time playing in the top tier of the Nations League.
Only two victories have come from the Dragons’ last eight games across all competitions as a result of a significant uptick in opposition, though.
However, Page and his team have only earned one point out of a possible twelve in games against Poland, the Netherlands, and Belgium in this competition. Most importantly, those victories came against Austria and Ukraine in the World Cup playoffs.
Even though Wales needed a goal from Brennan Johnson in the 86th minute to even the score against Thursday’s opponents in the reverse match, the result could have been higher had it not been for the last-second goals that were allowed in each of the defeats to the group leaders Netherlands.
Since November 2014, these two countries have faced off six times, with Belgium claiming just one victory—in a World Cup qualifying match in March 2021.
Belgium is driven to work hard for all three points because they are still behind Netherlands after the previous two encounters, both of which were played in Cardiff, finished in 1remainin
Roberto Martinez’s team has had to play catch-up throughout this group as a result of a 4-1 loss to their opponents at home on matchday one, and given the style of that result, they will be quite content that their fate is still in their own hands.
Although the rematch with the Oranje is scheduled for the following week, Belgium cannot afford to lose focus since failing to defeat Wales with a perfect score would give the Netherlands a chance to go to the Finals with one game remaining.
Against Poland last time, an early Michy Batshuayi goal proved to be the difference, and with Romelu Lukaku out with an injury, responsibility will once again fall on the Fenerbahce attacker.
We expect this match to be competitive the entire 90 minutes because these two squads are so familiar with one another. Despite this, we cannot support Belgium on home soil because Martinez’s team might secure the three points in the last moments.
