Boasting one of the most exciting forward lines at the World Cup, we think Belgium will claim their second win in a high scoring match in Moscow

Of all the sides fancied to do well at the tournament, it was Belgium who opened their World Cup campaign in the most convincing fashion.

It is true that Roberto Martinez's men were up against newcomers Panama and did not score until the second half, yet the 3-0 victory was achieved with some excellent attacking play.

The Red Devils now face a Tunisia side who frustrated England for large parts of their opening game, but were run ragged when the Three Lions moved the ball quickly and Belgium's exceptional forward line should cause more problems.

Latest odds

dabblebet offer Belgium at 4/11 (1.36) to claim another victory while Tunisia are priced at 9/1 (10.00) to bag their first World Cup win since 1978, with the draw at 4/1 (5.00).

Team news

Belgian defender Vincent Kompany is likely to miss the game following a groin injury picked in the run-up to the tournament.

Tunisian goalkeeper Mouez Hassan will miss the rest of the tournament with an injury picked up in the opening game.

Preview

Following a good opening win, Martinez will be hoping for another strong performance to build up some momentum and Nabil Maaloul's men could prove ideal opponents.

This is Tunisia's first appearance a World Cup since 2006 and their record in the tournament is dreadful.

Not only have they managed to claim just a solitary win in 13 competition appearances but they also have recorded just one clean sheet - with both of those being achieved in 1978. 

Tips and predictions

Tunisia will hope to frustrate Belgium as they did England, yet the European outfit have plenty of quality up front.

Perhaps the best option here is backing Belgium to win and over 2.5 goals in the game at 21/20 (2.05).

Three of Tunisia's last four matches have seen over 2.5 goals, as have three of their last four World Cup games, while six of Belgium's last seven victories have all been achieved with over 2.5 goals in the game
