Competition: International friendly
Market: Romelu Lukaku to score anytime
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Putting their final preparations together before this summer’s European Championships, Belgium will welcome Greece to the Stade Roi Baudouin on Thursday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Belgium would have been disappointed to have only collected a point against the Czech Republic on World Cup qualifying duties back in March, The Red Devils bounced back in some style. Tipped as one of the leading contenders heading into this summer’s European Championships, Roberto Martinez last saw his side land a stunning 8-0 romp against Belarus on home soil. Looking to keep the mood in their camp at a high and get some welcomed minutes under their belt, the one-time Wigan boss will be hoping for Romelu Lukaku to continue on what has been a real free-scoring run out in Italy. Playing a vital role in Inter Milan’s charge to lifting this year’s Serie A crown, the one-time Manchester United striker bagged himself 37 goals for club and country this season, including finding the net in his last three appearances on the spin.
As for the visitors, although Greece might have received plenty of praise after bringing in Head Coach John van’t Schip back in 2019, they were last seen putting in a sluggish display on home soil. Despite landing that eye-catching 1-1 draw off of former world champions Spain when opening their World Cup qualifying campaign back in March, Piratiko missed a real chance against Georgia. Although they might have opened as a landslide pick to grab their first Group B win, the one-time European Champions were eventually lucky to have snatched a point at the Karaiskakis Stadium. Settling for a point in three of their last four matchups and certainly facing a stern step up in class on Thursday night, we’re backing a tough night for Greece.
Bet: Romelu Lukaku 4/6 to score anytime against Greece in Thursday’s international friendly @ 888sport
