Belgium vs Morocco first goal scorer odds

Roberto Martinez has ruled Romelu Lukaku out of this game because of injury, so Michy Batshuayi could start again. He scored the decisive goal against Canada and is the favourite to open the scoring in this game at odds of 5/1 (6.00). Team-mate Lois Openda is the next favourite to score first at 6/1 (7.00).

For Morocco, Hakim Ziyech and Youssef En-Nesyri are both priced at 17/2 (9.50).

Belgium vs Morocco preview

Belgium picked up an important win against Canada but the Rode Duivels were hardly convincing against their North American opponents.

Roberto Martinez will be pushing for more from his team with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Youri Tielemans in the team.

Morocco will be hopeful of pulling off an upset against the European side, however.

They are unbeaten in their last six matches and put in a solid defensive shift as they held Croatia to a goalless draw in their first game.

Belgium vs Morocco tips and predictions

This could be another tight affair, so backing under 2.5 goals at 8/11 (1.73) is a tempting option.
