Current Table Position And Home & Away Performances

This match will probably decide the sorts of the Nations League group as Belgium are leading by two points after both teams have played two games. England cannot afford a defeat but they will confident after they have secured six consecutive clean sheets in a row. The last one was against Wales in midweek, even if that match will not be too relevant as Gareth Southgate will rotate the entire squad virtually. The only player likely to feature will be Joe Gomez with the likes of Harry Kane, Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford that will be back in the starting XI.

Gareth Southgate team looked good eventually against Wales, but we cannot forget that they did struggle in the first half with the 3-4-3 formation. That was the same employed against Iceland and Denmark last month when England failed to convince. The main issue with that formation is that the central midfielders are too detached from the front line and wing-backs are not getting forward enough. Southgate is keen to continue to insist on the 3-4-3 saying that his squad has a depth of talent in all positions.

Declan Rice and Jordan Henderson are likely to feature as central-midfielder, and they would have to be in top form as they will be up against Kevin de Bruyne and Alex Witsel. Henderson has played only 111 minutes since the beginning of July, and this is an area of great concern for England. The same can be said for the left side where Kieran Trippier would have to play, once again, out of position. Belgium wing-back Thomas Meunier is capable of causing problems in that side with in-form Romelu Lukaku ready to fire as soon as he has an opportunity.

The other side of the field looks more favourable for England. Despite Southgate will be missing Raheem Sterling who is injured, the likes of Rashford and Jadon Sancho should put pressure on a defence that doesn’t seem very reliable. Jan Vertonghen should feature despite having fractured his cheekbone and former Spurs team-mate Toby Alberweireld is likely to struggle with England’s pace.

Axel Witsel looks a bit overpriced to record one or more shots on target in this match. In the last match Belgium has played against Iceland, the 31-year old has scored his tenth International goal. During that match, he has delivered four shots on target. Surely, against England, it won’t be the same in the final third, but the price looks inflated for just one shot.

Romelu Lukaku has scored 26 goals in his last 22 competitive matches. Most of his goals, however, have been netted against the minnows while he has always struggled in critical games. For instance, he failed to score in the knockout stages of the World Cup and also against Netherlands and Denmark. Better value to back De Bruyne to score at any time. He has scored five goals in his last 10 international matches and has been in good form in this first part of the season. Since football returned in the summer, he has scored eight goals in 16 matches for Manchester City. With Hazard that won’t feature, he will have bigger responsibilities in the squad and should get lots of opportunities. Furthermore, he should also be on penalty duties.

Trippier to pick up a card should also be considered as he will be playing out of position on the left. The former Tottenham player is not prone to yellow cards but the referee Tobias Stieler has already shown 24 cards in his five international matches and has a similar average in his UEFA clubs games. Trippier will likely struggle against Meunier and the speedy teenager Jeremy Doku so the England man might have to use illegal methods to keep the ship afloat in that side of the field.

Goals Markets Betting Preview

Both sides look strong upfront, and this match could feature a few goals. Belgium, however, will have to do it without Eden Hazard and Dries Mertens. Not having Hazard is a big blow for Belgium chances, but they still have attacking threat so backing both teams to score, and the over 2.50 goals looks value.

England defence have now gone six matches without conceding, but against decent sides they have always leaked in recent times. Czech Republic managed to score two times in the Euro Championship qualifiers, and Netherland won 3-1 in the Nations League Finals. If we extend our look to include the 2018 World Cup we can see that both Spain and Croatia scored goals against Southgate’s men.

Betting Preview

This is a huge chance for Brighton to cause an upset for Manchester United and Graham Potter should focus on a solid defence that plays it a bit more simple than what they sometimes do. Can they keep United to a 0-0 draw by half time, there will be chances to go on the counter in the second half. We think Potter will fancy the chance of an upset and we back Brighton to hold the draw until half time. 0-0 at half time is our pick for this one.
