Belgium v Tunisia Prediction & Betting Tips – World Cup 201823rd June 2018 / lee
Belgium v Tunisia World Cup 2018, 22nd June – 7.00 p.m
Although it took them a while to settle down Belgium completed a comfortable win over Panama in the end in their opening game of the tournament. They may have to exercise some patience again when they meet Tunisia on Saturday as they Africans played a pretty negative game in a defeat against England in their first Group G fixture. Our Belgium v Tunisia predictions are leaning towards another three points for the Europeans.

Belgium v Tunisia Betting Tips
The Red Devils took a while to get going in their opener against Panama but they got there in the end with a 3-0 success. Romelu Lukaku got himself a couple in the match and not too surprisingly the Manchester United man is up as the 12/5 first goalscorer favourite with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 20th, 2018 at 9:29 p.m.). There could well be more goals in this for Belgium but they may have to be patient to make their breakthrough. That is because Tunisia were largely negative against England in their opener. But the thing about Belgium is that they do have those creative players like Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne who can open up a game in an instant and that extra star power is probably going to guide the Red Devils to a success here.
That would leave them with qualification secured ahead of their meeting with England in the final round of matches. There has to be a good look in our Belgium v Tunisia predictions at a Belgium to win to nil option at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 20th, 2018 at 9:29 p.m.) which looks very generous. Belgium have conceded just the one goal in their last six games played (W5 D1) so they are in form at the back. Granted they didn’t play all that well in their opener, there was a lack of decisiveness and fluency in their first-half performance, but they still won comfortably at the end of the day. In the bet365 correct score market a Belgium 2-0 is the shortest-priced option at 11/2* (Betting Odds were taken from June 20th, 2018 at 9:29 p.m.) and if you wanted to get a bit bolder than a 3-0 for Belgium is at 15/2. Belgium have scored at least three goals in four of their last five games.
Tunisia are winless in four games now (D2 L2) losing their last two after suffering a 2-1 defeat against England in their opener. That is back to back to one-goal margin defaults that they suffered (against Spain and then England) so they do have some defensive qualities and those defeats followed back to back 2-2 draws against Portugal and Turkey in friendly games. They conceded to England in stoppage time, just as it looked as if their backs-to-the-wall tactics of sitting deep were going to get them a point. Tunisia’s goal came from a somewhat debatable penalty kick in the game, barely raising a threat to England’s defence aside from that. It is hard to picture Tunisia doing anything different tactically other than just playing a defensive game from the off because of how much a threat Belgium could be. We were a little surprised by their lack of attacking interest against the Three Lions and both teams not to score at bet365 is at 8/13 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 20th, 2018 at 9:29 p.m.). Even with them needing a win to keep themselves in the tournament it is not too likely to happen because we just cannot see where the quality in attack is.
Belgium v Tunisia Head to Head
There have been previous meetings between Belgium and Tunisia, three of them in fact. Things are even in the head to head actually with one win each and one draw. From the one previous occasion that they met in a World Cup fixture, there was a 1-1 draw played out back in 2002 during the group stage.
Who will win – Belgium v Tunisia Predictions
The Red Devils to win to nil has to be a pretty solid banker for this game in our predictions. They should get enough of the ball to keep Tunisia camped in their own half as the Africans did against England. It may be a game of patience but Belgium can win it.
