Odds: 7/5 @ Bet 365

Two nations that will go to battle for top spot in Group G, a win for either Roberto Martinez’s Belgium or Gareth Southgate’s England side will secure they move on as winners.

For the Three Lions, coming off the back of their record-breaking 6-1 win over Panama in their second matchup in Group G, England match Belgium across the board and will travel to Kaliningrad filled with confidence. Now unbeaten in any competition since June 2017, while Gareth Southgate has confessed his displeasure at England being unable to keep a single clean sheet against either Tunisia or Panama, his inexperienced defense will face a stern test on Thursday. However, England will be looking for Harry Kane to continue his own stellar start to the tournament. The 25-year-old now has five in his last two so far, he also tops the goalscoring charts.

As for Roberto Martinez’s Belgium side, while his star-studded Red Devils are coming off the back of a 5-2 win over Tunisia in their second outing and have now scored eight goals in their two appearances, the exact same as England, Belgium did ship two poor goals and will also have to answer some serious defensive questions. While England have Kane, The Red Devils have their own striker enjoying a fine run of form. Now with 17 goals in his last 14 appearances for Belgium, Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has scored a brace in both matches against Tunisia and Panama and the 25-year-old also sit one goal behind England’s skipper in the charts.
