Belgium vs Russia Prediction: Betting Tips, Preview & Odds

Euro 2020 Betting Tips & Odds: Belgium play Russia at Gazprom Arena on Saturday 12 June, Kick-off: 22:00. Read on for our free prediction, match preview and team news for this football fixture.

Belgium have enjoyed a meteoric rise over the past ten years when it comes to international football, with the Red Devils having gone from a side who haven’t succeeded in qualifying for major tournaments to one of the favourites for World Cups and European Championships.

Belgium vs Russia Preview

The Belgians are strong betting favourites although it’s hard to make a prediction that they will win this opener considering that there are question marks over the fitness of Kevin de Bruyne, with the Manchester City midfielder having sustained a facial injury during the 2021 Champions League final.

Eden Hazard also hasn’t had ideal preparation for this tournament and his fitness could be brought into question, although Youri Tielemans and Yannick Carrasco can deputise in the midfield department, even if the match betting odds have them as too short.

Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld have been long-standing defenders although they’re not getting any younger, with Thibaut Courtois one of the better keepers at the tournament.

Betting Prediction

Russia can’t be easily discounted considering that they are going to enjoy home advantage and there’s definitely something to be said for the fact that Stanislav Cherchesov’s side finished second behind their opponents in the group after winning eight of their ten games.

The Russians will have had experience of facing Belgium and potentially developed some learnings, with this match being played at the Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg and there could be problems posed in the form of prolific striker Artem Dzyuba.

Denis Cheryshev has really kicked on after a breakthrough performance at the 2018 World Cup, with the best betting tip potentially being on both teams to find the net, something which happened when the sides clashed home and away during Euro 2020 qualifying.
