Betting suggestion:

This clash brings as protagonists two selections that are not among the main European, but still show great quality. Both countries host disputed championships that bring strong clubs that come to bother in continental competitions. Belgium have been making a good campaign in the World Cup Qualifiers, leading Group H, while Russia only focuses on preparations for the Confederations Cup in June. Both teams have individual highlights, but Belgium seems to have a stronger cast, showing good numbers even when they are away from home. Thus, it is a good bet the Belgian victory, but as they play away from home, the draw is also a good betting option. This betting suggestion has expired...
