      Tip Reasoning

      Belgium’s place in Euro 2016 is secure, all that remains to be seen is whether they advance as group winners or runners up. It’s been a pretty convincing campaign for the Belgians, they lost 1-0 away from home against Wales, and were also held to a draw by that side and Bosnia in other games, but 21 goals scored and only four conceded it a pretty good return from this qualifying campaign.

      These games might not count for much, but don’t underestimate Belgium’s motivation. Every win can only help their seeding in the big dance this summer, while this game against Israel is a last competitive test before that tournament.

      Israel will need to compete pretty hard. They’ve managed to win just one of their last six matches, but remarkably are still in contention for third place and a potential playoff game, though they need other results to go their way.

      Cyprus claimed a surprising 2-1 victory in Israel at the weekend, Israel will need another upset when the Cypriots play host to Bosnia on Tuesday.

      Israel lost 1-0 at home to Belgium and it’s just difficult to see this squad pulling a big away win out of the bag given their performances during the second half of qualifying.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Israel desperation

      They haven’t lost many games by more than one goal to be fair and they are usually a pretty solid defensive team. We just think that an element of desperation will play a role in at least keeping this game close.

      2. Asian Handicap line makes sense

      A better than double return on the Asian Handicap represents a pretty good betting opportunity. One team is de-motivated and has hardly thrashed other established sides in group play, the other usually brings a steady defensive game and needs a result desperately.

      3. Belgium still win

      We still think that Belgium will find a way to win this game though. Our correct score prediction also takes the game Over 2.5, which is another decent tip at 8/11.
