With the Belgians’ attacking strength upfront and defence solidity in recent times, they will be looking to get past the Pharaohs with ease

Belgium will aim to continue their outstanding form in their preparation for the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals when they host Egypt at Stade Roi Baudouin on Wednesday.

The Red Devils come off the back of a 10-game unbeaten streak and putting into consideration their excellent performance against the reigning European champions Portugal last time out, even though it ended in a goalless draw, they will be hoping to extend that run in this encounter.

AccessBET still offers the Belgians at odds of (1.29) as clear favourites even though the hosts have failed to record success in their two meetings with the Egyptians.

The Pharaohs enter this final warm-up duel on the back of a goalless draw with Colombia. It’s worth mentioning that the north Africans have been struggling without their key man, Mohamed Salah, who is pushing to be fit for the World Cup. Thus, they are chalked up at huge odds of (12.00) as  underdogs.

Seeing this match end in a stalemate at the end of 90 minutes of action is priced at a juicy (5.00) with the same betting firm.

In the last seven home games of Roberto Martinez’s men, five have seen three or more goals scored. And considering the attacking threat the Red Devils could pose, backing a repeat of such here seems a good bet at odds of (1.75).

The last two clashes between both countries opposed goal action at both ends of the pitch, and this has also paid out in the hosts’ last three matches. Hence, the bookies tip odds of (1.58) for a repeat here.

Hector Cuper’s side have avoided first half defeat in three of their last five encounters  and should be backed to hold their stronghold to avoid another loss before the break at a chunky (2.00).

Since Egypt are short of an offensive threat, the Belgians will build on their defensive form, having kept four clean sheets in their last five outings. Therefore, punters should confidently back a win to nil for Martinez’s charges at odds of (1.85) with AccessBET.
