Betting Special: Back Belgium to beat South Korea at 7/2

Paddy Power are offering new customers the chance to back Marc Wilmots's side at a huge price of 7/2 (enhanced from 4/5) for their final group game on Thursday
Belgium were widely tipped as one of the teams who could go a long way at this summer's World Cup, going off fifth favourites with some firms, and, despite needing some last-gasp winners, the Rode Duivels have collected six points from their opening two games.

On Thursday they take on South Korea and are generally priced at 4/5 (1.80) to collect another three points and finish top of their group.

That price may be attractive enough for some punters, considering that South Korea have picked up just one point from their opening two games and were comprehensively beaten by Algeria in their previous match.

New Paddy Power customers can get a massive 7/2 (4.50) on the Belgians collecting three points, a price that is likely to tempt punters who don't already have an account.

A late goal from Divock Origi meant that Wilmots's men got the better of Russia in a closely contested match and, although their performances may not have been as impressive as some had expected from a squad laden with high-quality players, their fighting spirit should serve them well as they look to progress through the knockout stages.

Origi's impact has certainly given Wilmots something to consider with regards to his starting line-up after the 19-year-old replaced a disappointing Romelu Lukaku.

The 7/2 (4.50) on offer for Paddy Power for Belgium to collect their third consecutive win should prove very popular with punters.

Anyone without a Paddy Power account who wants to take advantage of these offers can sign up for one here.
