Better placed team to win*:
Standing on third place in the FIFA World Rankings, Belgium is the ‘not so hidden’ favourite to win the whole competition. It is obvious how almost every big nation is struggling to break 10-man defence lines. We cannot say this about the Red Devils who managed 3-0 win in their opening match. The talent is on the side of the Belgium team and they will do everything in their power to win against Tunisia because nothing is guaranteed in their last match against England.

Belgium are a lot better placed to win this. Tunisia will try what every ‘small’team is trying against the big names – putting every man behind the ball and running to the final whistle. I don’t think the Tunisians will manage to keep cold all the weapons which the Red Devils possess. Eden Hazard knows how to unlock defences and has a good chance to win MAN OF THE MATCH award. Unlike most of the matches so far, Belgium is good enough to LEAD AT HALF-TIME and FULL TIME.
