Belgium are heavy 9/25 favourites to down Wales in Euro 2016 Qualifying Group D action on Sunday afternoon despite the sides playing out a draw in their most recent meeting.
Admittedly the Belgians had secured World Cup qualification the game before that clash in Brussells last October, but there remains reason to suspect the Welsh can claim another proud point at the very least.
Y Dreigiau are 15/4 for another draw in the Rode Duivels’ backyard and a lengthy 7/1 for victory but they return to the Stade Roi Boudoin in far more star-studded shape than that which they left it in.
What made the point garnered Chris Coleman’s side so impressive is that it was earned without the assistance of a plethora of first-team players.
Undoubted star player Gareth Bale was absent through injury as were captain Ashley Williams and midfield Joes Allen and Ledley.
The quartet are all available to bolster Wales’ chances of another fine result this time around and they rejoin an outfit in bullish nick.
An away loss in the Netherlands is the sole occasion that Coleman’s men have been bested across their last eight internationals.
Despite having won three of their four outings since the World Cup by a margin of two goals or more, Belgium haven’t quite shaken off the feeling that they remain less than the sum of their expensive and lauded parts.
An away draw in Bosnia in one of the two competitive games in that sequence suggests as much and there is plenty to like about Wales as a 2/1 double-chance wager.
After all in Real Madrid’s Bale they have the game’s most decisive performer, putting even Chelsea’s Eden Hazard in the shade as a goalscorer.
It has to be assumed that if Wales are to prise victory from their hosts then he’ll need to score, meaning the 25/2 about both eventualities occurring is an appealing alternative the straight win bet.
