thumbnail Hello,

With a place in Brazil secured next summer, Marc Wilmots' side play host to Chris Coleman's men and our tipster is backing the home side to score exactly two goals

Belgium have lived up to the hype in their quest to qualify for the World Cup next year, securing their place last Friday after a 2-1 victory away at Croatia.

Marc Wilmots' men have won eight of their nine matches, and face Wales at home in their final encounter. With closest rivals Croatia eight points behind them in Group A, the Red Devils have strolled over the line for the 2014 finals and should finish with a flourish on Tuesday.

Wales faced Belgium in their first qualification match back in September last year. Goals from Vincent Kompany and Jan Vertonghen were enough to give Wilmots' side the three points on that occasion.

Chris Coleman brings his side into this game after victory in their last match. The Dragons beat Macedonia 1-0 to record only their third victory in their qualification campaign. This win followed up three losses in a row though, with Croatia, Macedonia and Serbia all beating them.

Paddy Power price the visitors at 12/1 (13.00) to spoil the celebration party and get the win against Belgium.

Wilmots' side come into this match looking to make it nine wins out of 10 in qualification. His side are unbeaten at home in their last 15 matches, with Germany the last team to win, with the scoreline finishing 1-0 to Joachim Low's men back in September 2010.

With Wilmots likely to name a strong side despite qualification already having been secured, it's no surprise to see Belgium at 1/5 (1.20) with Paddy Power. The same firm price the draw at 6/1 (7.00).

With the handicap market and Half-time/Full-time markets too short to touch for Belgium, it's worth looking at team goals to find a bet that stands out.

Belgium to score two or more goals has been a fantastic bet for their qualification campaign, paying out in seven of their nine matches. However, with the price at 2/7 (1.29) it's far too short to back.

What is worth an investment is Belgium to score exactly two goals at 12/5 (3.40) with Paddy Power. This bet would have landed in six of the Red Devils nine matches so far in Group A.

As well as this, the bet has also paid out against Wales in six of their nine qualification matches. With Coleman fighting for his job with Wales, it's unlikely his side will roll over and take a beating, but Belgium should have enough to ease home.
