Kazakhstan vs Belgium
Date: Sunday, 13 October 2019
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Astana Arena (Nur-Sultan).
Roberto Martinez’s men are on the verge of qualification, and they would be eager to make their progression official this week itself. It seems pointless to take things easy now, and prolong the formality further. Overcoming the home advantage of the Hawks, the visiting contingent should rally to post the three points on the board.

Kazakhstan vs Belgium Prediction
These two have already locked horns as a part of this same qualification tournament. Then, Martinez’s men, at home, delivered a classic 3-0 win to set the tone for the rest of their games in the competition. The star-studded cavalry combined to race to a two-goal lead even before the clock showed 15 minutes. Later Romelu Lukaku too chipped in to complete the triumph for his side.
This outcome was an expected one, as previous clashes between the two have always sided with the Red Devils. In fact, Belgium holds a 100% unbeaten record against this rival and a 100% winning streak in the last decade.
Moreover, goals have been a familiar sight too. The World Cup semifinalists have scored twice or more every time they took on the Kazakhs on the road and registered a combined scoreline of 9-1 from the former three battles.
At present, the team is on a winning run of six straight games and was unbeaten in thirty-six of their former thirty-eight ties. They have scored four or more goals in the last two overall match-ups, and thrice or more in the previous four.
On the other hand, their counterparts have just one win from their prior five attempts and just five from their nineteen appearances in front of the home crowd.
Taking into account these observations, a dominating win for the visitors seems the logical outcome for this tie.
