Belgium meets Cyprus in a qualification match for the World Cup 2018.
Belgium: The home team is currently holding the 1st position of the Group H with 25 points won. They have already qualified with impressive results of 8 wins and a draw. Belgium has a run of 4 wins and they are undefeated in their last 9 matches. Most noteworthy, they are one of the most high-scoring teams in qualification with 39 goals for and 6 against. Due to a 3-0 away win against Bosnia, the home team enters the field very motivated.
Cyprus: The away team is in the 5th position of the Group H. They managed to win 10 points after 3 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses. However, defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have negative goal difference. Furthermore, they scored 9 but conceded 14 goals. Also, Cyprus heads into this match unmotivated with a 1-2 home loss against Greece. Seems like they are in bad shape and unmotivated as they have no chance to qualify.
Conclusion: Although the home team is qualified they still don’t seem to be going to stop trying. Also, each of the last 3 matches that Belgium have played had over 2.5 goals. Thus, it is expected an open match with a few goals scored.
