Belgium vs Greece: Routine success for Red Devils

Kick-off: 1945, 03/06/2021

Stadium: King Baudouin Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Belgium are expected to be one of the major players at Euro 2020 and can warm up for that tournament by seeing off Greece in Brussels.

Their opponents failed to qualify for this summer’s big event but they do tend to be well drilled and defensively sound.

We’re going with Evens for the Red Devils to prevail and under 3.5 goals in the game for our first Belgium vs Greece prediction.

A Look At Belgium’s Betting Odds

Belgium are hot favourites to top Group B at Euro 2020, with Denmark, Russia and Finland featuring in that section.

Roberto Martinez’s men were third at the last World Cup and have been number one in the FIFA rankings for a couple of years.

They powered through qualifying, scoring 40 goals and conceding just three in a run of 10 consecutive victories.

Last year’s Nations League event brought more impressive performances, with the Red Devils finishing five points clear of Denmark and England in their pool.

March’s World Cup triple-header featured a 3-1 win over Wales and an 8-0 rout of Belarus, either side of a 1-1 draw away to Czech Republic.

Kevin De Bruyne’s injury in the Champions League final was a setback while Eden Hazard is coming off a patchy campaign at Real Madrid.

However, the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Dries Mertens, Christian Benteke and Leicester’s FA Cup final hero Youri Tielemans finished the season strongly.

With Thibaut Courtois in behind an experienced and efficient defence, 10/11 for the Red Devils to win to nil appeals from the Belgium vs Greece odds.

A Look At Greece’s Betting Odds

Greece have done little of note before or after their famous Euro 2004 triumph and are currently as low as 51 in the FIFA rankings.

Finishing second to Slovenia in Group C3 of the Nations League was a little disappointing, especially as they only conceded one goal in six games.

Three 0-0 draws during that campaign highlights where the strengths and weaknesses lie within this outfit.

Greece were third behind Italy and Finland in Euro 2020 qualifying, netting in only one of four encounters with those teams.

Drawing 1-1 away to Spain was a great start to their World Cup pool but an own goal was then needed to share the spoils with Georgia on home turf.

Head coach John van ‘t Schip can call on some solid professionals but this is the kind of game where Greece’s limitations are usually exposed.

Let’s finish off our Belgium vs Greece betting tips by taking 11/2 for a routine 2-0 home win.
