Belgium are in great form under Roberto Martinez with 11 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. But, Belgium are even better at home, with 22 wins, 5 draws and just 1 loss in their last 28 home fixtures. In recent times, they have won their last six home matches while scoring 20 goals and conceding just 5, managing three clean sheets in the process.
Switzerland were impressive in their 1-0 loss to England, but I think they will struggle more against this special Belgium squad. They have players in fine form, with the likes of Eden Hazard banging in goals for fun at the moment. But, Romelu Lukaku is also in fine form for the Belgian Red Devils and is the top-joint scorer in the UEFA Nation’s League.
Belgium should be far too strong in this match and I expect a fairly high scoring win for the Red Devils tonight. They have scored two or more goals in nine of their last twelve home matches.
Firstly, this game is going to be played behind closed doors with no supporters watching. I feel like it can only benefit England in this match and after their 6-0 spanking from Spain, I hope we can pile on further misery here.
Can you read the bitterness in my writing? It’s fair to say I am yet to get over the loss from the World Cup. Even worse, I despise Mandzukic as a player and he had to score the winning goal. Anyway, I do actually fancy England to get something here.
I thought England played very well against a strong Spanish side at Wembley and let’s face it, we deserved a point. I can see both teams scoring in this game, as England have kept just three clean sheets in their last 12 matches.
Also, I feel Croatia are more than likely to concede a goal and I am excited to see some of our young attacking talents get some minutes on the pitch in this one. I would love to see Maddison get a start, but I would also be happy with Sancho or Mount. We need a more creative spark and these players certainly have the potential to provide it.
In a way, I can see this game finishing 1-1 so BTTS looks pretty decent value at evens.
Den Bosch are starting to click after a fairly disappointing start to their league campaign. They have won their last two games in a row, scoring three goals in both while conceding just one goal.
They now come up against the bottom of the table Dordrecht who have lost all four of their away games this season while conceding a total of 11 goals. But, Dordrecht did pull off a shock win against Cambuur last time out. However, Cambuur have been struggling in recent games, so it wasn’t too much of a shock.
Den Bosch have won five of their last six meetings, with the other game finishing a 2-2 draw. At home, Den Bosch have won their last three H2H fixtures against Dordrecht and we expect that trend to continue tonight.
Almere City comes off the back of beating one of the promotion favourites NEC Nijmegen and even managed to keep a clean sheet. They now sit at the top of the table with five wins in a row.
Their away form this season has been just as impressive with 3 wins out of 3 so far and we expect that fine form to continue tonight.
Volendam did just claim their first victory in the league last time out and a clean sheet. We expect Almere will be too strong for Volendam but the draw no bet is there just in case. The value is still good at 4/5 as this league tends to see a lot of goals with a draw being all too possible.
Volendam have only lost one game at home this season, winning one and drawing the other two. Their defence is fairly hard to break down, with them conceding just three goals in four home matches. I feel Almere should win this game but the draw no bet certainly has reason to be there.
