World Cup 2018 Qualifiers
Group H of the European qualifiers has some unique features that make it very, very interesting to watch.
One of these features is the fact that it hasn’t seen a single game ending in a draw in the first 3 days – all teams have clearly shown their superiority one over the other.
On Sunday, Belgium will face Estonia – will they continue their 100% record, or will we see surprises?

Weird enough, Estonia actually won their last official game against Belgium, 2-0 in 2009! The two squads have changed a lot since then, and we can clearly see this in Estonia’s recent games.
A 4-0 victory over Gibraltar, which doesn’t really tell us much, coupled with 2 losses (0-5 against Bosnia and 0-2 against Greece) shows us that the small team has trouble finding the net.
It’s really hard for a team to gather points against Belgium with such a handicap since the Belgians are more than capable of scoring goals.
And, moreover, they seem to be in great form defensively as well. After a rather disappointing Euro 2016 campaign, the team has a 13-0 goal difference after their first three games, easily beating Gibraltar (6-0), Bosnia (4-0) and Cyprus (3-0).
Some of their players, like Hazard, Carrasco or Lukaku are in very fine form, leading their clubs to win after win. It’s safe to say there is no question about the winner of this game, but only how many goals they will score.
Belgium vs Estonia Betting Tips
Recent history and form seem to tell us that Belgium will score at least 3 times, against a team who’s used to concede. Belgium -2 or -3 are both decent bets, while over 2,5 or 3,5 goals is also a great idea.
Hazard, Carrasco, and Lukaku are our choices for goalscorers, since at least 2 of them will find themselves on the scoresheet.
