class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The hosts boast an extremely strong record at home in qualifying tournaments and we are backing them to start another campaign in positive fashion
Wales begin their World Cup qualifying campaign on Wednesday evening by travelling to Group E favourites and world number one Belgium.
Roberto Martinez’s men have held that position at top of the FIFA rankings since September 2018 but will not have fond memories of this fixture, going down 3-1 when these countries met in the quarter-final of Euro 2016.
Belgium vs Wales Latest Odds
The Red Devils have not lost a competitive fixture on home soil for 11 years and bet365 offer a home win at just 1/3 (1.33) .
Wales, though, are unbeaten in their last 11 competitive games and can be backed at 8/1 (9.0) to record a shock win with the draw available at 4/1 (5.0) .
Belgium vs Wales Team News
Belgium are without Eden Hazard, whose season has been blighted by injury, whilst Romelu Lukaku is in the squad but may not feature due to a coronavirus outbreak at Inter. Axel Witsel is injured.
The Dragons suffered a major injury blow of their own with Aaron Ramsey pulling out of the squad at the weekend due to a thigh injury, although he is their only forced absenetee.
Belgium vs Wales Preview
Wales begin this qualifying campaign off the back of an excellent showing in the UEFA Nations League last season where they won five of their six matches, conceding just one goal.
Their group, however, was made up of Finland, Bulgaria and the Republic of Ireland, and the Dragons are likely to face a considerable step-up in quality on Wednesday night.
Belgium have netted at least twice in 18 of their last 20 matches and their firepower up front remains extraordinary, even if Lukaku joins Hazard on the sidelines.
Backing the hosts to get among the goals makes plenty of sense and is generally a strong option when Belgium are playing at home.
Belgium vs Wales Tips and Predictions
Belgium to win and score over 1.5 goals is priced at just 4/7 (1.57) , but for higher odds backing them to score in both halves at evens (2.00) should appeal.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
