Finland Form and Team News

Finland after the edgy win over Denmark in the first game did not really find the groove in the second game against Russia who made them pay in the end a loss to go with that. Finland now finds itself in a tricky position playing against the Belgians and are in need to father either at least a point from this game to guarantee themselves a knockouts berth. Finland played their first game in any major competition final on Saturday against Denmark in Copenhagen, went on to win that game by a slender margin of one goal to nil, unfortunately, that win could well be overshadowed by some tragic turn of events that unfolded on the pitch. Nonetheless, Finland along with the rest of the world be happy with how it finally ended without any feared extreme consequences. Finland was the second team to qualify for the championships from group J with 18 points secured after playing ten matches. They won six and lost four games in the process. They were able to produce results in all ten games with zero draws to their name. Italy played out their best football to finish as the toppers of the group winning all the ten games they were part of. They are starting to hope to upstage a comeback of sorts while in the championship and cause some upsets along the way. 

Coach Markku Kanerva played with a five-man defence in the last game against the naturally attacking Russians. Still, they managed to concede the only goal at the stroke of halftime which eventually turning out to be the winner. Finland can be proud of the way they have played in the first major tournament they have ever represented, and just need to focus on the last game against the Belgians and try to put out a competition of sorts for the number one placed team and get a result out of the game which is the only thing that could potentially guarantee them a playoff birth. 

Belgium Form and Team News

Belgium in the last game against Denmark looked out of sorts in the first half and a little into the second half and also were down by a goal to nil, but then somehow they turned it around and produced flashes of brilliance to make the comeback and finally winning it by two goals to nil. Belgium are already qualified, but still will not be complacent given that momentum is important going into the latter part of the tourney. Belgium were clearly coming into the tournament as favourites, but still, there were doubts on whether they’ll falter on the big stage like they have been doing the past few years. But it was all put to rest by Lukaku and co. managing to produce a clinical performance against a formidable Belgium lineup. They are looking good to finish in the top half of the table which would be their objective going forward. Belgium were one of the two teams who finished the qualification round having won all the games they played. After the ten games, Belgium stormed past all the opponents to win all the ten games in the process. Naturally, due to that Belgium managed to finish as the number one team from Group I. Belgium were also the highest-scoring team in the qualification rounds scoring as many as 40 goals while conceding just three goals along the way. 

Roberto Martinez, the coach of the Belgium National Football Team after having spent so many years in the camp would know the players in and out. He would need to produce the results nevertheless with the sort of players at his disposal with the current setup widely regarded as the golden generation of Belgium football history. Lukaku was at his best in the last game paving the way for both the goals in a way. De Bruyne assisted on one occasion while netting in the winner as well. Thorgan Hazard scored the equaliser before that. Overall it was a good comeback from the red devils.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Belgium are favourites to win this game given the odds, but Finland can’t be counted out before the game as well. Belgium as of the head to head stats have a very peculiar record to resolve, they are still to win against the Finland side. They last played against each other five years ago and Martinez has converted this side into a winning machine and this match could well be the start of an upheaval from the Belgian side going forward.

Tip 1: Belgium Total Goals over 1.5

While in the last five away games that Belgium have played, they have managed to score above the above limit in three matches of those. Finland also have conceded over 1.5 goals in four games in the last nine games across competitions. Belgium have also scored over the 1.5 goal line in all ten of the qualification matches which also states the goal-scoring form they are in presently.

That was the level of dominance exerted by the Belgians on the opposition. So in short, Belgians had all the ten games of the ten where the above condition was met. So in all likelihood, this match between Finland and Belgium would have Belgium winning by over 1.5 goals. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for Asian Handicap Belgium -1.5 is 1.97.
