Belgium vs Canada - World Cup 2022

Our first match for World Cup betting in Group F sees Belgium squaring off with Canada in a match that should set the tone for both countries in Qatar. The match will be contested Tuesday, November 23rd at Al Rayyan Stadium. According to the betting odds, the Belgians are heavy favourites at 1.37 according to Sports Interaction. Belgium is looking to finally get over the hump and make the World Cup Final, while Canada National Soccer Team would be happy to win a match.

Belgium vs Canada Best Odds

Belgium vs Canada Betting Tips

In Belgium’s last six World Cup group stage matches they have recorded a victory without conceding a goal. They will likely dominate the possession in this match and leave Thibaut Courtois and his defenders with little work.

 

BELGIUM WIN/BTTS NO (2.00)

Canada plays their opponents quite tight, even when they lack in quality. Manager John Herdman is a great tactician and is able to keep Canada competitive in every match. The Asian handicap market gives us a lot of value and room to work with.

 

ASIAN HANDICAP CANADA +1.5 (1.92)

Belgium will more than likely win this match, but I feel strongly about this being a low scoring match. Canada need this match to remain close at worst, as goal differential could come into play for the knockout stage.

 

BELGIUM WIN/UNDER 2.5 GOALS (3.20)

Belgium vs Canada Analysis

Belgium

The Belgians are consistently one of the top teams at international tournaments. They can score at a high rate in fast paced matches, but can also grind out low scoring matches. The Belgians have a dominant midfield, it will help them control the flow of matches.

Key Players: Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and Toby Alderweireld

Team News: Belgium has been playing in a 3-4-2-1 or a 3-4-3 formation under Roberto Martinez.

Predicted Lineups: GK Thibaut Courtois, LB Jan Vertonghen, CB Leander Dendoncker, RB Toby Alderweireld, LM Thorgan Hazard, LCM Axel Witsel, RCM Youri Tielemans, RM Thomas Meunier, LAM Eden Hazard, RAM Kevin De Bruyne, ST Romelu Lukaku

Canada

There is a clear alpha on Canada and that is Alphonso Davies. In the prime of his career, Davies has become one of the best backs in the world. But, for Canada he is a different animal. Davies plays up and down the park, giving the Canadians every ounce of himself. If he is at his best, Canada could truly give any squad a run for their money.

Key Players: Alphonso Davies, Jonathan David and Cyle Larin

Team News: Atiba Hutchison (bone bruise) and Doneil Henry (knee), both should be ready for the World Cup + Canada played a 3-4-1-2, but have also used a 3-4-2-1 and a 4-3-1-2.

Predicted Lineups: GK Milan Borjan, LB, Sam Adekugbe, LCB Kamal Miller, RCB Steven Vitoria, RB Alistar Johnson, LM Atiba Hutchison, RM Stephen Eustaquio, CAM Jonathan Osorio, LW Alphonso Davies, ST Cyle Larin, RW Tajon Buchanan

Belgium vs Canada Prediction

There is unfortunately little to no value here, but I see it being a herculean task for Canada to beat Belgium in their opening match. Perhaps you could place Belgium’s moneyline into a parlay to get some value. My prediction is a Belgian victory.
