Estonia vs Belgium
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group H)
Date: Friday, 9th June 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: A. Le Coq Arena.

Belgium will be looking to get back on the winning ways after an unexpected slip up against Greece in the previous round of WC Qualification.

The Red Devils are massive favourites to ease past Estonia in the sixth round of the competition this Friday at A. Le Coq Arena.

Estonia

Estonia took four points from five matches which is kind of the expected scenario for them in a tough group with Belgium, Greece and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The Blueshirts will, however, come in the game with Belgium in high spirits after a shocking 3-0 victory on the home pitch in a friendly against Croatia back in late March this year.

It was the third consecutive fixture which saw the team keeping a clean sheet, but the run will be heavily challenged on Friday when the Estonians host one of the strongest attacking lineups on the continent.

Belgium

Roberto Martinez will be without Eden Hazard who will be sidelined in the next three months after the surgery.

However, the Spanish expert still has super strong potential featuring some of the main stars of European football.

Michy Batshuayi and Marouane Fellaini were on target in a 2-1 victory over Czech Republic at Stade Roi Baudoin two days ago in a friendly.

Estonia vs Belgium: Head to head

The Red Devils have been just ruthless in the 8-1 drubbing of Estonia back in mid-November last year when the two sides met each other for the first time in this qualifying term.

Meunier, Mertens, Hazard, Carrasco and Lukaku were all on target in a demolishing in for the Belgians.

Belgium generally lead the head to head tie 4-1, but they lost 2-0 in their previous visit to Tallinn back in October 2009.

Estonia vs Belgium: Prediction

The hosts will be super motivated to fix the disastrous impression from the first clash with Belgium.

They have significantly improved their performances at the back ever since and we see the value in the 17/20 odds offered by the bookies on the hosts not to lose by three or more goals here.

Estonia vs Belgium: Bet Tips
