Belgium’s Euro 2020 qualification: matchday 3 and 4


It’s time for matchday 3 and 4 of the Euro 2020 qualifications! All hopeful nations will face off on football pitches all across Europe, but of course we’re specifically looking forward to seeing our Belgians in action once more!

Belgium has the luxury of playing its next two qualification games at home in the King Baudouin stadium. On Saturday June 8, it meets Kazakhstan, while Tuesday June 11, it’s Scotland’s turn to play. After the humbling 5-2 defeat to Switzerland in the Nations League, the Belgians have to set things right in front of the home crowd, and make every game count for Euro 2020 qualification. Let’s see if we can find any information that can help us place the smartest bets!

Belgium – Kazakhstan

Belgium is currently ranked number 1 in the world by the international federation. Kazakhstan, on the other hand, is a football minnow at place 116 in the world ranking. This stark class difference is mirrored in the base odds, so you shouldn’t bother betting on a victory for the Belgians, as it will only make you some spare change. In this case, it’s not too useful to overanalyse team statistics either. Instead, look for odds that may look like bigger risks, but offer the right rewards.

With a victory for Belgium more than likely, you can go for a ‘Correct score’ of 2-0, 3-0 or 4-0 for a respective win of €64, €50 or €52 if you were to wager €10. Goal fest or not? ‘Total Over 4.5’ goes for @2.29, while ‘Total Under 3.5’ gets you @2.33!

Belgium – Scotland

Scotland currently takes the 44th place in the world ranking, and can be considered an outsider candidate for qualification. Looking back through the head-to-head results, we see that the Scotsmen haven’t managed to defeat the Belgians since 1987. A 2-2 draw in 2001, their last 2 goals against Belgium, was the best recent result. In September 2018, the Belgians thrashed Scotland 0-4 on Scottish soil in their first game following the big summer tournament…

Recent history seems to imply a comfortable win for Belgium. A late consolation goal for Scotland after a Belgian demonstration in front of the fans would give you €64 on a €10 bet. Also of possible interest could be ‘Both teams to score’ @2.90.
