Back Belgium to beat England and BTTS in World Cup 2018 3rd/4th place play-off

Belgium face England in St Petersburg in Saturday’s World Cup 2018 third/fourth place play-off in a game that, having both just missed out on a place in the World Cup final, neither team will be particularly keen on playing.  Here’s our thoughts on this match along with some England v Belgium betting predictions…

England v Belgium Betting Predictions

Match Result & Both Teams to Score – Belgium & Yes @ 14/5 (3.80) with BetStars

The fact that both coaches are likely to make substantial changes to their line-ups from the semi-finals should at least ensure the game is relatively competitive, as squad players take the opportunity to stake a claim for regular starts going forward.

Some players from both teams who were in action earlier in the week will certainly take part here too, so Belgium could have an advantage in that their semi-final was a day earlier and England also had to undergo 30-minutes of extra-time, at the end of which several of Gareth Southgate’s team were either nursing injuries or looking physically and emotionally drained.

Belgium can be backed at 5/4 with Betway to win the game in 90-minutes, which looks reasonably attractive, with 23/10 available at bet365* on England and the draw offered at 11/4 with Betfair.

Other England v Belgium Betting Predictions

Given that these are likely to be much-changed teams and there not being a great deal at stake, it could be a fairly open encounter.  On that basis, backing a Belgium victory with Both Teams to Score at 14/5 with BetStars could be worth a bet.

Michy Batshuayi could well start for Belgium, so at 6/4 with Coral for an Anytime Goalscorer, he looks a definite contender.
