Belgium v Cyprus Betting Tips & Predictions | WC Qualification Europe Match Previews.
10th October 2017 – 19:45, Stade Roi Baudouin, Bruxelles.
Match Preview & Team News
Even though Germany and Switzerland have a perfect record, Belgium are the most dominant side of this qualifying term. The Red Devils eased their way past all of their rivals in the Group H netting as many as 39 goals during the process. They are still to add to this tally on Tuesday when they host Cyprus in the last match of the campaign at Stade Roi Baudouin in Bruxelles.
The hosts have already secured the top spot in the group even before the final two outings, but Roberto Martinez used his strongest squad available (literally everyone except for the slightly-injured Man Utd striker Romelu Lukaku) against Bosnia-Herzegovina who were desperate to snatch a three-pointer on Saturday evening in Sarajevo.
Even though the weather (heavy rain) and pitch conditions massively helped Bosnians by limiting Belgium’s attacking play (De Bruyne claimed he has not played on a worse terrain since the age of seven), the Red Devils bagged four goals past Bosnians for the second time in this qualifying term.
It was an open match which ended in a seven-goal thriller as Yannick Carrasco’s goal made the difference at the end right after Bosnian’s threat through Djumic’s goal from a decent header. The captain Eden Hazard is again expected to lead the Belgian side here, while Michy Batshuayi will be desperate to net as many goals as possible and take advantage of Lukaku’s absence.
Cyprus dropped down to the fifth position after Saturday’s home defeat to Greece (who overtook Bosnians at the second position) and they will hardly improve their place after the last round’s trip to Bruxelles. The Cypriot side lost all of their away matches to higher-placed rivals in the group and it’s very hard to expect them to improve this poor record against the strongest of them. The match played on the opening day saw Belgium claim a demolishing 1-4 victory at Neo GSP in Nicosia.

Michy Batshuayi is 9/4 to score two or more goals which is a must-take pick under these circumstances. Chelsea’s forward will be super motivated to prove he can be a role at the World Cup next summer.
