    Pick 2 (0W 1D 0L)

    Belgium vs Japan
    Pick: Japan +1AH
    Odds: 2.42 at SBOBET

    Ok, game will be played at the Rostov Arena, between Belgium vs Japan. The Red Devils are rated as big favorites to compete with Brazil, France,... for the title. They head into this game on the back of three straight wins in group G, finished ahead of England.

    Japan, on the other hands, did a good job in group H, in which they beat Colombia, drew Senegal and lost narrowly to Poland. The Blue Samurai's form right now looks much much better than their form in the friendly matches prior to this World Cup. Confidence is back, this team is capable of upsetting bigger sides.

    I just checked their squad and notice that both sides have no missings or injury concerns. Japan met Belgium two times in recent years, one in 2013 and one in 2017. They won once (3-2) and lost once (0-1). Therefore, chance is 50/50 here in my eyes.
    3-2 Pick void!

      Pick 5, -75
      Belgium - Japan
      Pick - 1st Half Belgium -1 AH
      Odd - 3.30 bet365

      Lads from Belgian national team are very dear to me for obvious reasons. When I watch these lads play, it feels like I'm watching Premier League. Lukaku, Kevin, Hazard, Fellaini, Courtois, Kompany, Vermalen and others. They are even managed by Roberto Martinez, ex Everton coah. I think there's an insane amount of responsibility over Martinez but he knows it. Belgium didn't try their best in any of the games yet. Against Panama they cruised until the 2nd half and they played with second squad lads against England. Japan are average but lucky to be here, Belgium will rush them hard and take the lead before HT, gl lads.

        Belgium - Japan
        Pick: Under 0.5 goals at Half-time
        Odds: 3.25

        The trend is to bet on huge win for Belgium, but I choose to go against the most of punters. Roberto Martinez boys won 1-0 against England and secured 1st place in their group, with an easier first knock-out match against Japan but harder route for the later phases of the tournament. The europeans rotate the players in that last group match and lost some team chemistry, we saw many times this kind of teams that play worst after resting key players and lost competitive rhytm. Japan plays not great football, we must admit it, but they are light hearted, well organised. If the Asians will run and close spaces, they will go with a draw after 45 minutes. The start of the match should have a slow tempo, it is an eliminatory tie and we saw cautious approaches in the previous matches from this World Cup, even Brazil was held 0-0 at HT with Mexico. Star creative midfielder Hazard stressed that it will be difficult clash. Japan lost 1 single match from 5 against Belgium. I believe the favorites will go through but it would not be an easy job.

          Pick #4

          2-0-1 +148


          Pick: over 3 goals @ 2.35 (SBO)

          Belgium have potential to turn this game into a high scoring affair. Offensively they are one of the best side in this tournment.They create a lot of scoring chances and know how to covert them, especially against lesser teams.

          Japan belong to this category. Japan play lively, with much running, sacrafice and ambitious attitude, but they are nowhere near Belgium in almost every aspect of the game. Nevertheless I would not exclude they score as Belgium make defensive lapses at times.

          Belgium don't change their way of playing no matter who they play. Lukaku and Co. should impose their power from the very begining. If the first goal comes in the 1st half, it's likely the second one will be open and rich of goals.

            Pick 6
            1-1-3 // -50

            Belgium vs Japan
            Pick: Kevin De Bruyne (anytime scorer)
            Odds: 3.10 (bet365)

            Kevin de Bruyne should score finally. He's been having average performances so far and it was against the likes of Tunisia and Panama. He did not play versus England doe. Kevin should shine today, Belgium are in knockout stages now and he should be one of key players. Kevin loves to shoot from distance, assist and send long balls through. He could possibly take some freekicks as well depending where the set piece will be. Japan will focus on blocking Lukaku and Hazard so Kevin should be more free and therefore score anytime.
