World Cup soccer bets for Belgium – Tunisia
The Belgian team is expected to win in the first round of the 2018 group stage after defeating outsider Panama 3-0. Roberto Martinez’s team is now facing Tunisia in their second World Cup match, and the expectations are for three new points for the Reds. The duel between the national selections of Belgium and Tunisia is on Saturday, June 23, at the Otkrytiye Arena in Moskva.
Roberto Martinez bet on 3-4-2-1 against Panama as Lukaku, Mertens and Eden Hazard were at the top of the attack. Kevin De Bruyne was a bit behind the midfield in the first half and maybe it was one of the reasons that Belgium did not score a goal for 45 minutes. The combinations of the Belgian attack did not happen. Eden Hazard has made reproaches after the match against the striker Romelu Lukaku that he was not active enough in the first half, but also Chelsea‘s footballer praised his colleague for the two hits that Lukaku scored in the second half. The second part for Belgium started very well as Napoli’s Dries Mertens scored a great goal to find the score in the 47th minute. In the middle of the second half, Lukaku scored two hits in six minutes, leaving Belgium with no doubt over its superiority over Panama. Even before the game it was expected that the Belgian team will win with at least two goals difference. These expectations were justified as a lot of football experts now believe that the “red devils” will also register a convincing success against Tunisia. If the game of Belgium is the second half against Panama, it is quite possible for Roberto Martinez to congratulate himself with another strong success that will qualify for the 1/8-finals of the World Cup 2018. However, Belgium to underestimate the fight against the African side, as we saw in the first match of Tunisia that they were minutes away from winning a point against the other favorite in the group – England.

Monday night Tunisia retreated to England with 1: 2 at the Volgograd Arena. However, the Tunisians made no bad match and only Harry Kane’s top scorer brought England a success. The Tottenham striker scored the winning goal for the Three Lions in the 91st minute, and earlier in the 11th minute he found the score. Ferjani Sassi realized the only goal for Tunisia in a penalty shoot-out in the 35th minute, with the Nabil Maaloul team not having other good goals. What can Nabil Maaloul’s team-mate change for the second game?
The 56-year-old mentor has little choice and can not add much class from the bench. Against England, he set a 4-5-1 lead as Wahbi Khazri, who was not a central striker. At the heart of Tunisia’s tactics was Ellyes Skhiri, who acted as a defensive midfielder and played tightly to the four in defense. Against the Belgian team, Nabil Maaloul is sure to take a new move like this, and he will not bet another player in this position. Tunis seemed rather weak in the static defense, which could provoke the release of Leicester’s defender as the champion Yohan Benalouane to strengthen the defense.
Belgium’s team will start again with their atomic assault, such as Hazard, Mertens and Lukaku will be in fear of defending their opponents. It is likely to see again a weaker first part for the Belgians and better play in the second half. No doubt, Belgium is the favorite for the three points. I expect the Red Devils to record a new World Championship victory and are very likely to beat Tunisia with at least two goals difference at the Otkrytiye Arena.
Good Luck with our World Cup soccer bets!
