EUROPE: World Cup - Qualifiers
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+2)
For many years Belgium was in the shadow of its famous neighbor and in the list of three countries (Benelux) it took the second place after the Flying Dutchman.
But now this historic tradition has changed greatly. If Clockwork Orange in the group A before three rounds to the end of qualification campaign is taking the forth place and can miss the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018, the fans of Belgium now are guessing in what three left matches their idols will become the participants of the World Cup 2018.
During the last 7th round the team of Roberto Martínez on its home arena was playing against Gibraltar. We doubt that it was necessary to announce that meeting because of absolutely different game level of the rivals. As a result the hosts of Maurice-Dufresne in Liege were really amazing and had scored 9 goals to the underdog. Romelu Lukaku, Thomas Meunier were the authors of hat tricks and Dries Mertens, Axel Witsel, Eden Hazard had scored one goal each.
Early going off the group
According to the results of the 7th round Belgium is 6 points ahead of its closest rival:
Belgium – 19, Greece – 13, Bosnia – 11, Cyprus – 10 …
So, what do we have now? If the team of Roberto Martínez will win over Greece in Piraeus, it will become absolutely reachless for their opponents and will assure the berth to the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018. To tell the truth, there exists even the goalless result with the early winning of Belgium in its group …
But in this case, the final winning of the team of Roberto Martínez will be nominal as, theoretically, the leader can be caught by Greece and even Bosnia. In any case there is no rival in the 8th group which can get in the way of the ¼ finalist of the World Cup Russia 2014 to get the direct berth to another World cup championship.
Greece – 4.75, draw – 3.60, Belgium –1.73;
