With so many talented attacking players likely to be on display in Kazan on Friday night, the second World Cup quarter-final looks set to see plenty of goals.

No team has netted more times in the competition than Belgium, with Roberto Martinez's men boasting an enviable number of goal threats.

Brazil too have players that can score all over the pitch, and their are plenty of potential options in William Hill's goalscorers market. 

Latest odds

The shortest priced player to find the back of the net is Neymar and there should be plenty of interest in the odds of 23/20 (2.15) for him to net.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward has already scored twice in the tournament is priced at 7/2 (4.50) to open the scoring, or at 11/2 (6.50) to net his first brace at this World Cup.

For Belgium, Romelu Lukaku is available at 29/20 (2.45) in the anytime goalscorer market with the Manchester United man having already netted four times. 

Hazard and Coutinho to contribute?

While the two most dangerous players in terms of scoring are Neymar and Lukaku, both sides possess playmakers who can score from a little further out.

Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring in each of Brazil's first two matches and is offered at 6/1 (7.00) to do so once more, or at a tempting 2/1 (3.00) to score at anytime

Meanwhile, Eden Hazard's two goals in the competition both came against Tunisia in the group stages, although the Chelsea man has consistently looked dangerous.

He is offered at 11/5 (3.20) to find the back of the net and the fact that he is Belgium's penalty taker could make him an interesting option.

Tips and predictions

William Hill offer an intriguing market which is backing a player to score the first or last goal in the game and the price of 16/5 (4.20) for Coutinho looks extremely appealing.

For higher odds, backing Willian in the anytime scorer market at 9/2 (5.50) could appeal, as could the price of 24/5 (5.80) for Kevin De Bruyne in the same market.
