Preview
Belgium and Greece meet , in a match for this stage of the WC Qualification Europe (1st Round). There is no record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last time they met, on 29‑02‑2012, the match ended with the final score: Greece (1‑1) Belgium. Greece registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

Analysis of Belgium

After 4 wins, the home team is currently in the 1st position, with 12 points won. In the last match, they have won (8‑1) at home against Estonia, after in the previous round they have won (0‑6) in an away match against Gibraltar. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 11 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses at their stadium. In the last 10 home matches Belgium has won 7, tied 1 and lost 2.

They have won the last 4 matches for this competition. They have presented defensive consistency, since they have only suffered goals in 1 of the last 4 matches, and their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in all of the last 4 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, since 11 of the last 11 have ended with Over 1,5 goals and 8 out of 11 have ended with Over 2,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 15 matches, and have only turned the score around in 1.

Belgium have the best generation of their history and are making a great campaign in the qualifiers for the World Cup in Russia and have 100% of the points played so far and it is worth mentioning that it has 2 points advantage for its next opponent, Greece, then a victory is very important to open up further in the lead and to direct the place to the 2018 World Cup. The team scored 21 goals, being the best attack of Group H, and suffered only 1 goal, with the defense less leaked and these numbers demonstrate the great balance between the offensive and defensive sectors, since the attack has scored several goals with great regularity, while the defense is presented with great solidity and suffers very few goals. Playing as host, as their match on Saturday, Belgium won their two games against Bosnia-Herzegovina and against Estonia, and has averages of 6 goals scored and 0.50 goals conceded per game, showing once again the quality both on attack and defense. In the overall competition, counting the games as principal and visitor, they usually score more in the second half, since 12 of his 21 goals took place in the second stage, mainly between 60 and 75 minutes and between 75 and 90 minutes where there were 5 goals in each of these periods. The team has great players, but the biggest highlights are the goalkeeper Courtois who passes great safety for the defensive system and midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, responsible for the creation in midfield. For the clash with Greece, Coach Roberto Martinez will not be able to rely on midfielder Eden Hazard who, curiously, was replaced by his brother Thorgan Hazard.

Confirmed Lineup: T. Courtois, T. Alderweireld, J. Vertonghen, L. Ciman, Y. Carrasco, A. Witsel, R. Nainggolan, M. Fellaini, N. Chadli, R. Lukaku, D. Mertens.
Coach: Roberto Martínez.

Analysis of Greece

The away team is currently in the 2nd position, with 10 points won, after 3 wins and 1 draw. In the penultimate round, they have won an away match against Estonia by (0‑2). In the last round, they have tied a home match against Bosnia‑Herzegovina by (1‑1). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 7 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 14 goals scored and 12 conceded; against 5 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses at their stadium, with 15 goals scored and 20 conceded.

In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 6 of the last 12 matches have ended ended with Under 1,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 6 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Greece have played well in qualifying for the 2018 World Cup and is among the top-ranked teams in Group H with 83% of the points played so far and it is worth mentioning that they are 2 points behind the leader and next opponent Belgium, at least a draw not to let the rival open even more in the first place. The squad scored 9 goals, being the second best attack of their group, and conceded 2 goals, having the second defense less leaked and these figures demonstrate the good balance between the offensive and defensive sectors, since the attack has marked regularly, while the defense shows good solidity with few goals conceded. Playing as a visitor, as the match that will do this Saturday, Greece has used 100% and averages of 3 goals scored and 0.50 goals conceded per game, but it is worth remembering that the two victories conquered away from their domains were against the fragile Selections of Gibraltar and Estonia. Scoring the games, both as client and visiting team, the offensive system tends to be more efficient in the first half, since 5 of the 9 goals took place in the first stage, especially in the initial 15 minutes where 3 goals were scored.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Kapino, K. Manolas, S. Papastathopoulos, V. Torosidis, G. Tzavellas, K. Stafylidis, P. Tachtsidis, P. Mandalos, A. Samaris, K. Fortounis, K. Mitroglou.

Betting suggestion:

This confrontation tends to be somewhat unbalanced, considering that the principal has a cast of excellent quality and has several players who are featured in the largest teams in Europe, while the visitor has only a medium cast and despite the good performance in the qualifiers, made 9 of his 10 points against blank selections. In addition, Belgium has a powerful attack and a solid defensive system, while Greece manage to score against poor teams, but find difficult to balance the networks against most qualified teams. In view of these factors, we believe that Belgium will put the best squad and the game command to win the 3 points without any major difficulties. This betting suggestion has expired...
