Belgium and England go into the last match of their group at the World Cup. This will be a meeting which will decide who will finish at the top spot in the group. This match will also be a match in which will participate the two of most effective teams so far. Moreover, against one another will stand the top scorers so far – Harry Kane with five goals and Romelu Lukaku with 4. Many people expect a real show of goals of these two teams, but whether is it going to happen, we will see tonight at the stadium in Kaliningrad.
There are several huge differences between the two teams and they are at least in the fact that England came to this World Cup with a young team while Belgium for the last four years relied on much of its current team. England is one of the squads with the lowest number of games played for the national team average for each player, while the Belgians certainly already gained experience by participating in several major championships.
Another difference between the two teams is the way of scoring goals. So far England is almost flawless in the use of static positions and much of their goals came that way. Belgium, in turn, uses pure football skills of their big stars like Lukaku, Hazard and Mertens to hits its marks. Statistics show that Belgium has made eight more shots on goals more than its rivals in today’s match – 38 against 30.
Only Brazil and Germany have created more goal attempts than the Belgians. The accuracy of the Belgians, however, is much better than the achievements of Brazil and Germany – 8 goals against respectively 3 and 2. Belgium is the first in number of shots on the opponent’s – 18, as England was second with 15. The British, however, led to another important statistic, and it is for the highest number real threads in front of the goal.
After all these considerations will hardly surprise anyone that a prognosis for both teams to score looks like a pretty likely. The odds proposed by the bookmakers so it is 1.9, which makes it really pretty decent bet.
