Belgium vs Estonia by Meese
Belgium started in a great way their new qualifying campaign and the team is already huge favorite to reach the World Cup 2018, even though they are having decent teams in the group such as Greece and Bosnia & Herzegovina. After opening 3:0 victory on the road to Cyprus, the team won at home convincingly over Bosnia 4:0 and demolished Gibraltar 6:0 on the road in the most recent match.
They entered the game in the best possible way, with a goal from Benteke already in first minute while he scored two more goals and Witsel, Mertens and Hazard scored one each, to show that the team is full of offensive potential and quality. With these three victories, they are at the top of the table together with Greece, while Bosnia has three pointer less than these two. Under such circumstances, Belgium is obligated to give their best in matches against complete outsiders in the group like Estonia, Cyprus and Gibraltar, meaning that they will be going for an easy three pointer here against Estonians.
Defenders Vincent Kompany, Toby Alberweireld, Thomas Vermaelen all remain injured, as well as offensive midfielders such as Moussa Dembele, Marouane Fellaini, while Radja Nainggolan and Nacer Chadli weren't invited this time.
Estonia, on the other side, suffered 5:0 defeat away to Bosnia in the qualifying opening game, but then improved and took convincing victory against surely the worst team in the group Gibraltar at home 4:0. Still, several days later, they were unable to stop Greece from winning in front of their fans with a 0:2 result.
That match was probably their last wake up call in case they want to do something more meaningful in the group, but team was unable to respond against rock solid team, especially in the defense. Greeks started with a goal in second minute via Torosidis and everything became much more easier for them once they took the lead - staying a bit behind the ball and trying more via counter attacks, but we are used to see Greeks doing it with ease. Finally, they scored the second goal in 60th minute via Stafylidis and from then on, had more than easy walk. Estonians are now six points below first two leading teams and hardly can get involved into something, rather trying to build up on this for the future times.
Defender Enar Jaager (121 caps for the team), midfielders Dmitri Kruglov (106 caps) and Sander Puri (69/4) and forward Sergei Zenjov (54/10) will not be playing here.
Belgium has offensive quality that is well above Bosnian for example and I see them winning here with a huge margin line. It would be really huge surprise for me in case the home side does not score four goals or more, hopefully with three goals being scored well before an hour of the game. Even though they could miss a player or two less, I still have full confidence in them.
