Euro 2016 Qualifying
Belgium Over 1.5 goals v Cyprus @ 1.50 (Bet365) – 5 points
Belgium AH-1.5 to beat Cyprus @ 2.03 (Bet365) – 2.5 points
Belgium come into this important qualifying match under pressure from Wales needing to deliver performances for a victory, if they want to try & overtake them for the top spot. They delivered a solid performance on Thursday after coming back from 1-0 down against Bosnia, to turn it around and win by a score of 3-1.
The Belgians are my team that I am backing to win Euro2016 and its very simple to see why due to the great talent that they boast. With the likes of Lukaku, De Bruyne and Hazard up front; its difficult to find another team other than Spain to boast such a quality front 3. When you move to the midfield you have a strong bunch in Felliani, Witsel and Nainggolan. Defensively they are extremely solid with Alderweireld, Kompany, Vermalen, Vertonghen & Courtois; which is really almost like an All-Star team. They will feel confident to continue their great scoring form which has seen them net 16 goals while only conceding 3.
Cyprus are in a tough spot now, sitting 4th in their group. After beating Bosnia as a surprise in the 1st match and then the 2 regulation wins against Andorra; they have failed to pick up any more points in the remaining games. Tough situation for a team that is now going to entertain the same Belgian team that smashed them by a score of 5-0 in March earlier this year. Defensively they have been largely poor conceding 12 goals, which is the 2nd worst in the group; and as they face the 4th best team in the world, things don’t look too optimistic for them.
I expect Belgium to put in a solid performance and win by a score of minimum 2-0.
