Competition: World Cup qualifying
Market: Eden Hazard to score anytime
Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport
Smelling the chance to enjoy another romp in midweek, European heavyweights Belgium will make the trip to a struggling Belarus on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, only minutes away from grabbing what would have been an eye-catching victory against Wales over the weekend, Belarus were instead hit with real heartbreak on home soil. Watching Gareth Bale grab a stunning hat-trick, Georgi Kondratiev’s side were hit with a 3-2 defeat at the Dinamo Stadium and they’re now in the midst of an extended blip. Including opening their September internationals with a deserved 1-0 defeat away at the Czech Republic, Wednesday’s hosts have lost each of their last four straight matchups across all formats. Knowing that they will face what should be another monumental challenge in Minsk this week, it should also be noted that Belarus were hit with a woeful 8-0 drumming when they faced off against the Group F leaders.
As for the visitors, while Belgium might have seen their European adventure come to an end against eventual winners Italy over the summer, Roberto Martinez’s side have bounced back in some style. Storming their way to a 3-0 romp against the Czech’s last time out, the one-time Wigan boss finds his side romp their way to next year’s World Cup finals. While new Chelsea arrival Romelu Lukaku might have made more international history over the weekend, Eden Hazard should be relishing another chance to add to his tally. Shrugging off his long-term injury issues and finding the net against the Czech Republic in an impressive display, the Real Madrid superstar should be smelling a golden chance in Minsk on Wednesday night. Claiming that 8-0 romp against Belarus when the two nations last faced off, it’s hard to see anything other than a similar away victory.
Bet: Eden Hazard 11/10 to score anytime against Belarus in Wednesday’s World Cup qualifying contest @ 888sport
