Belgium vs Wales Preview
Thursday, September 22nd, 19:45 (UK)
The first-ever winter World Cup is on the horizon, and both teams will be looking to determine their best eleven before they jet off to Qatar. This tournament is jammed in the middle of a packed domestic fixture list, so these last few matches before the tournament are vital for the managers.
Wales secured their spot in the World Cup for the first time since 1958. On the other hand, Belgium will be looking to live up to the golden generation hype and get their hands on a trophy for the first time in their history.
Despite the match being viewed as preparation for the World Cup, it is still a Nations League match. Wales have one point from their four group games so far, but they were defeated by very late goals in the three matches they lost. Wales also earned a point in Cardiff against the Belgians.
Belgium were beaten in the semi-finals of the last World Cup by the eventual winners, France. They seem to have gone under the radar in the build-up to this tournament, and their performances over the next few matches should give us an idea about whether or not they are serious contenders.

Belgium vs Wales Bet Builder
Bet365 have six corners for the home side priced at 1.80 as a single, and I’m going to play that as part of our builder here. Roberto Martinez’s side have had seven and ten corners in their two home Nations League matches, and those numbers came against the Netherlands and Poland.
Wales have done well against Belgium. They famously beat the Belgians in the quarter-finals of the European Championships and have lost just two of the last eight meetings against this opponent. Both teams have found the net in the previous four meetings between the sides, and I think they will create some chances here.
Surprisingly, Wales have found the net in all of their last ten games. Wales previously had a reputation as a defensive side, but they have shown a lot of attacking intent in their recent matches. Wales are averaging 1.6 goals per game in their last ten fixtures, while Belgium’s opponents are averaging 1.5 goals per game over that period.
The team card markets aren’t released as part of the bet365 bet builder at the time of writing, so I’m going to select a player card as part of our bet. In the reverse fixture, both teams picked up two yellow cards.
Ampadu is predicted to start at right centre back on WhoScored; this would likely put him in direct opposition with Eden Hazard and Yannick Carrasco. Ampadu hasn’t played much football this season, so he could be a little rusty here. He also picked up 11 cards in Serie A last season, and I expect him to make a few fouls.
- Over 5 Belgium Corners
- Both Teams To Score
- Ampadu To Be Carded
