Wales vs Belgium World Cup Qualifiers Prediction by LeagueLane

Wales vs Belgium
World Cup Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 16 November 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.

The Belgians have already qualified for Qatar, and that too in style. However, they will have no intention to let go now.

The team will be determined to complete the campaign in style, and build some momentum in anticipation for the World Cup – in what might possibly be the last hurrah of their golden generation.

Meanwhile, Wales have made it to the playoffs, and as such are not under pressure. Still, they would like to record a win, and improve their seeding for the upcoming second round of qualifiers.

As such, expect a fierce encounter this Tuesday. But the result should side with the first-ranked team in the world – Belgium.

Wales vs Belgium Head-to-head

  • The reverse encounter had ended in a 3-1 win for the Belgians.
  • They had recorded four of the past six overall wins.
  • It’s been five years since they last lost a fixture.
  • Four of the past eight meetings had three or more goals.

Wales vs Belgium Prediction & Analysis

The Belgians recorded a 3-1 win at home the last match-day, against Estonia, and thus made their participation in Qatar official. After back-to-back heartbreaks in international competitions, the team is determined to make something of their great crop of players.

On the other hand, Wales too are on a great run. They had just registered a 5-1 win at home against Belarus, and they are also on a two-game winning streak.

Thus we have two in-form squads on either side of the pitch, with no pressure – since both have progressed further. As such, expect goals in plenty this Tuesday.

However, Kevin De Bruyne and co simply look too good to handle, and they also have a better h2h record over the years. Count on them to post the win at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Key Stats

  • The Belgians have been ranked first by FIFA since 2018, and note that they had made it till the semis in the Russian World Cup.
