Competition: International friendly
Market: Belgium to beat Mexico
Odds: 4/9 @ Bet365
Club football takes a backseat this weekend as the international break returns. There are a number of interesting games including playoffs which will see the final batch of teams secure their World Cup places, while there are a glut of sides playing in international friendlies as managers look to experiment with their team and tactics. With this in mind, Belgium host Mexico in a friendly on Friday.
Belgium have been in superb form in their World Cup qualifying campaign and they look like real contenders to challenge at the tournament next year. Nine wins and a single draw from their 10 games saw them qualify with ease, finishing with nine points more than second-placed Greece. 43 goals scored is an outrageous total, while they have conceded just six times, showing that they a superb outfit right across the park. With so many failings in recent years despite having an outstanding team, this could finally be Belgium’s time to win a major tournament.
Mexico secured their place in next summer’s World Cup as they came top of their group. From their 10 games, they won six times, drew three and lost just once. Along the way they hit 16 goals and conceded just seven times, finishing with five more points than second-placed Costa Rica. Mexico constitutes a very tough opponent for any side in world football, and Belgium will want to test the water against their American opponents on Friday, with a view to next summer. Taking form into account, we are backing Belgium with odds of 4/9 from Bet365.
