Belgium v Tunisia Odds

Belgium are now unbeaten in their past ten group stage games at World Cups (won five, drawn five) after they opened their Group G campaign with a 3-0 win over Panama. Roberto Martinez's men had to be patient before their quality eventually told and it is remarkable that their last 11 goals in World Cup games have arrived in the second half.

With that in mind, the second half to be highest scoring looks like a very good bet at 23/20 with Boylesports, particularly when you consider that the Belgians needed a late goal from Dries Mertens to beat Tunisia 1-0 when these two nations last met in a friendly in 2014.

The term 'friendly' is being used loosely here as there were actually six yellow cards and one red during their clash four years' ago and Unibet go 57/17 about another sending off on Saturday.

It is Belgium who are 2/7 favourites for the win this weekend as they surely have too much quality in their ranks, with Eden Hazard 4/1 to score first after racking up eight goals and eight assists in his past 15 outings for Belgium.

Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku is in quite ridiculous form as he has scored in nine of his last ten internationals following his brace in the win against Panama - 15 goals in total - and he is 11/4 favourite to be first goalscorer with Paddy Power.

Lukaku will relish the opportunity to take on a Tunisian side that is now winless in four outings after losing 2-1 to England in their opening group match. The African nation showed that they are capable of frustrating opponents and that may work for a while, although expect them to tire and Belgium's class to tell as the game wears on.
