Betting Tip: @ Over 3.5 Goals @ 6/4 with bet365

It’s the game that nobody really wants to play. While England have surpassed expectations by reaching the semi-final stage of the 2018 World Cup, their punishment for losing to Croatia is a third place play-off against familiar opponents.

Gareth Southgate will surely give fringe players a chance to enjoy a run out in this game, similar to what he did in the last Group G game against the same team that resulted in a 1-0 defeat.

The bookies anticipate Belgium winning the game again, although Roberto Martinez may opt to include Romelu Lukaku in the team as the Manchester United forward looks to get the goals that could yet see him land the Golden Boot.

It’s an outside chance considering that Harry Kane is two clear and the England captain would love to go out with a bang in this clash, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Marcus Ashford and Gary Cahill among the players likely to start this game.

Ultimately, we tend to see goals being scored in these type of glorified friendly games and that is probably the best route to take when it comes to having a bet.

Team news is obviously a big deal with games of this nature although it’s worth noting that Belgium have had an extra day’s rest and also played 30 minutes less football than their opponents this week.
