Belgium and England will be hoping to end their Mundial campaigns this summer well as they lock horns on Saturday at the Saint Petersburg Stadium to claim the third-place.

The Red Devils saw their 25-match unbeaten streak come to an end when they suffered a 1-0 lone defeat at the hands of France in the global showpiece semifinals.

Notwithstanding, they're priced as slight favourites at odds of (2.20) with Bet365 having won the previous encounter when these squads met during their final group stage match in this tournament.

Gareth Southgate's men's hope of lifting the trophy this summer were dashed as they suffered a 2-1 loss to Croatia after extra time. Since they will only be playing for a consolation in this clash, they're chalked up at a chunky (3.30) to win.

A no winner, no vanquished state after an intense 90 minutes of action is available at a whopping (3.75) with the same betting firm.

Both sides, after failing to reach the quadrennial tournament finals, might have been disappointed with that outcome but should be in high spirit as they face-off in this showdown.

And putting into consideration that the last four third-place play-offs have seen three or more goals scored, a possible result can be backed here again at (1.57).

Harry Kane will be looking forward to add to his goal tally in this match. The Spurs forward has scored six goals so far and should be backed to strike anytime at odds of (1.95).

It seems profitable backing the second half as the highest scoring half owing to the fact that both teams will be cautious of each other in the first 45 minutes. The bookies offer odds of (1.95) for a likely result in this tie.

What appears to be more generous is backing an outcome that sees both teams finding each other’s net knowing well that they can be lethal up front. Bet365 tips odds of (1.53) for a possible result here.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
