Belgium To Win To Nil

Reason for tip

Belgium have only lost to the Netherlands, France and Italy in their last 29 games, and they averaged under one concession per match in their recent World Cup qualifying campaign. Meanwhile, Egypt have not scored multiple goals in any of their last 15 competitive games, failing to net on eight occasions.

Belgium 2-0

Reason for tip

Belgium have hit 16 goals in eight games this calendar year, including six against Poland in a dominant victory in June. With Egypt having no World Cup to look forward to and winning just two of their last eight competitive games in normal time, they look unlikely to threaten. However, the Pharaohs have seen under 2.5 goals scored in each of their last 15 competitive fixtures, so won’t be blown away.

Belgium vs Egypt Predictions

  • Only Italy, France and the Netherlands have beaten Belgium throughout their last 29 matches – a run which began in October 2020.
  • Belgium only conceded six goals in their eight World Cup qualification games ahead of the upcoming tournament in Qatar.
  • Egypt have failed to score multiple goals in any of their last 15 competitive games, being shut out in eight of them.

Red Devils look for perfect warm-up

Roberto Martinez’s Belgium do not head to the World Cup in Qatar as heavily fancied as they were in Russia four years ago, when they suffered a narrow semi-final defeat to eventual champions France, but their star-studded squad dictates that they will still be a threat at the tournament. With Belgium’s so-called ‘golden generation’ likely to only have one more shot at World Cup glory, preparation is key, and punters should expect them to fare well against Egypt in Kuwait.

Belgium endured an indifferent UEFA Nations League campaign earlier this year, finishing second to the Netherlands in Group A4 after only winning half of their six games, but their struggles have been confined to their matches against the elite. Indeed, Martinez’s team have only lost to Italy, France and the Dutch in their last 29 games, a run which goes back to October 2020. In their recent World Cup qualification campaign, against worse opponents, Belgium only conceded six times in eight games, scoring 25 times.

Egypt hardly have a reputation for free-flowing football following their dour style at the Africa Cup of Nations back in January and February, and they have not scored multiple goals in any of their last 15 competitive internationals, failing to net on eight occasions in that run. Indeed, only recent friendly opponents Niger and Liberia – ranked 121st and 150th in the world respectively – have conceded more than once to Egypt this year.

Belgium should be untroubled

With Belgium having a World Cup to look forward to, we expect them to take Friday’s meeting far more seriously than Egypt, and backing them for a shutout win against impotent opponents looks smart.

Meanwhile, Belgium have scored 16 goals in eight games in 2022, and with a plethora of substitutions likely, backing them for a routine 2-0 victory could make for a strong correct score prediction.
