Belgium vs Cyprus Prediction
Cyprus had a disaster of a game the last time they took on an opponent on the field. The match was part of this qualification campaign itself, and then, despite having the support of the crowd, the team conceded two early goals. In fact, by the 23rd minute, the hosts were trailing 0-2.
This surely must have led to some pressure, as the home team was reduced to just ten on the pitch due to a red card, and this was taken advantage of in plenty, in the later stages of the fixture. The visitors, Russian, fired in three goals in the last ten minutes of the game. And thus they completed the 0-5 road win.
Almost a similar story occurred, though only in the reverse order, the last time Belgium played hosts. Welcoming San Marino, the World Cup semi-finalists netted nine goals in a row, without conceding, to keep their extraordinary streak alive.
As they play hosts to the Cypriot contingent this Tuesday, keep note that the Belgians have been unbeaten against them since 1980, and have not even conceded against them since 1995. In fact, the combined scorecard for the previous five encounters is 15-0, in favor of Eden Hazard and company, and importantly, in home soil, the Belgians have maintained a 100% winning record.
In addition, in such kind of fixtures, Cyprus have not been able to find the back of the net since 1982 as well.
This match-day, with the home advantage, terrific superiority in h2h battles, and their desire to keep the momentum going on, Belgium should deliver a massive victory.
