Belgium vs England
World Cup, 3rd place game
I expect Belgium to win and I expect plenty goals in this game, on both sides. So my tip is: Belgium to win and both teams to score? Yes.
Belgium is clearly side way above between these two. So, their victory on some higher stake probably is good option. But I will go with the mentioned bet cause these third place games always are high scoring. Simply, it's like teams have different approach to it. It's never that too cautious approach like it's finals or any other previoys knockout round. Here in 3rd position match, usually it's more like a friendly game, or to be more correct, a high scoring friendly.
In last five WC, we always have had 3+ total goals in third place games. But not only 3, what more sometimes those were also games with 4 or 5 totals goals.
On the high scoring match today could affect also Top Goal Scorer race. Namely Kane and Lukaku are in the mentioned race. Although Kane has scored two more, I wouldn't be surprised if today we see goal fest in which Lukaku maybe breakthrough on the Top Goalscorer standings. In any case, Lukaku to score 2 or more @5.00 is something worth to think about. Or Lukaku and Kane to score both.
These two teams met in the group stage. Back then Belgium won 1:0 but we know how serious that game was. Well, not serious at all with both teams playing with reserves.
The bottom line, goals are expected this time and for the winner market, I must give advantage to more quality side, to Belgium.
