Croatia - Belgium Betting Preview: The visitors look good value to find the net twice

Phil Kitromilides believes the impressive forward line that Marc Wilmots has at his disposal for this game will ensure the away side find score at least twice in Zagreb
Arguably possessing one of the most exciting squads in the world, Belgium's place at next year's World Cup will be assured with a win over Croatia. Marc Wilmots' side have been superb in qualifying, scoring freely and conceding just two goals in eight games.

They have a team more than capable of beating Croatia and Coral price them at the eye catching price of 2/1 (3.00) to win in Zagreb.

The hosts meanwhile have been far from their best in recent months, losing at home to Scotland and needing a late late goal to beat Liechtenstein. They are offered at 11/8 (2.38) with the draw available at 9/4 (3.25).

But with a with qualification at stake and the side flying it is hard to back against the Belgians and many will be tempted by the price for them to win. Yet more adventurous punters will take the price of 12/5 (3.40) for Belgium to score over 1.5 goals in the game.

Croatia's defence has not been the most solid with the side this year conceding goals against Wales, Scotland and two against Liechtenstein.

Belgium meanwhile have a stunning froward line and one can readily see them netting twice this evening.

Despite the loss of Vincent Kompany through injury, the Belgians should have enough firepower at the other end of the field to ensure that they are able to get on the scoresheet a couple of times in this game.

Furthermore this bet has paid out in five of Belgium's last six qualifiers and is a great option for a small investment at 12/5 (3.40).
