Belgium vs Russia: Predictions and Betting Tips
Sixth European Championship for the Belgians, their best result was runners-up in 1980.
The Belgians are aware that they are favourites to finish top of their group.
The Belgian squad is one of the most complete in this Euro, they have players of the highest quality on all lines of the pitch; Courtois, Alderweireld, Hazard, De Bruyne, Lukaku, etc.
This will be the seventh time that Russia has taken part in the EURO since the break-up of the USSR, having won the title in 1960.
After a good showing at the 2018 World Cup, the Russians want to go as far as possible in this tournament as well.
The Russians and Belgians have met six times and in none of these fixtures, have the Russians managed to win.
- Nine consecutive matches without losing for Belgium (Nine wins and two draws)
- Belgium have scored 14 goals in their last five matches
- Three wins, one draw and one defeat for Russia in their last five games
- Russia have conceded at least one goal in six of their last seven matches
Belgium vs Russia Predictions
Despite the match being played in Russia, we think the Belgians are far superior. They are a very strong team, with some of the best players in the world in their squad. In addition, in terms of the level of collective play the difference is also very big, the Russians are not bad but they do not reach the level of Belgium.
The Russians have been a little weak defensively, which is why they have conceded at least one goal in six of their last seven matches, and against a team as powerful in attack as Belgium, we think the match could end with a lot of goals.
