Romelu Lukaku To Score Two Or More Goals    Best Bet 16/5

Belgium v Panama Odds

The Belgians are 1/7 favourites to start with a win, according to the Belgium v Panama Odds, and they are looking to extend an impressive 19-match unbeaten run in international football. Roberto Martinez's men have kept 10 clean sheets in those 19 games and the Belgium win to nil is an attractive bet for odds-on backers (13/20 with Bet Victor), particularly when you consider Panama's struggles in front of goal.

Panama produced a quite remarkable effort to qualify for their first ever World Cup, but it is worth noting that much of their best work came on home soil, with the Central American nation failing to score in four of their five away qualifiers.

Furthermore, since securing qualification, Panama have won just two of eight games and have failed to score in four of their last five, including an embarrassing 6-0 defeat to Switzerland earlier this year.

Belgium could dish out a similar thrashing on Monday as Martinez's men are the epitome of 'flat track bullies' and they are 13/8 to cover a -2 goal handicap.

Belgium v Panama First Goalscorer Betting

Speaking of flat track bullies, Romelu Lukaku has an exceptional record when it comes to scoring against lesser sides and he could fill his boots in Sochi. The Manchester United forward has scored 13 goals in his last nine international appearances and he is 4/6 to score at anytime, although it is Paddy Power's 16/5 for Lukaku to score two or more goals which makes most appeal.

Lukaku has scored two or more in four of his past nine games for Belgium and he is capable of bullying a feeble Panama in this opening Group G encounter.
