Belgium – Wales: Matchday 5 of Group 4 of the first division. The Netherlands leads with 10 points, followed by Belgium with 7, Poland with 4 and last-place Wales with 1. The ‘red devils’ were defeated 1-4 in the opening game of the league. Then they responded with two wins over Poland (6-1, 1-0) and the point they got in Cardiff from Wales (1-1). In the last two matches they are looking for one point more than the Netherlands, who they face away from home in the group final.
With a record of 0W-1D-3L and 5-8 goals, Wales will hardly avoid relegation to the second division. Its presence in recent years has been transcendental, definitely improved compared to the past but also with a specific ceiling. Which can’t keep drilling. To avoid the fate, he must get a result against Belgium and play everything for everything in the last match against Poland, always on the condition that Lewandowski’s company does not beat the Netherlands.
Belgium has an excellent roster, plenty of talent and quality players. The team rarely separates the formation with three in defense, it looks for “up tempo” play and by switching roles the team manages to have variety in creation and execution, maintaining the element of unpredictability. Wales are a tight team, playing behind the ball against superior opponents. The team emphasizes line cohesion and defensive security, betting on the 3-4 quality units in front of them to find a goal. Its roster does not have the required depth of solutions and the management of the games cannot be an ideal product of the time.
The match does not hold much analysis, it depends purely on the appetites of the favorite. And since Belgium can’t afford any more losses, it’s unlikely they’ll turn a blind eye. Pushing early on to ‘clean’ as quickly as possible. It seems an oxymoron for Wales to withstand the pressure and a remote scenario for them to react if they find themselves behind on the scoreboard. The odds, well read, lead us to a controlled risk. And we’ll bet on the combo over 1.5 goals for Belgium & over 7.5 corners in the match at odds of 2.02 on TigersBet Builder.
