FIFA World Cup
(18 Jun 2018)
Belgium – Panama
Belgium takes on Panama in Group G of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, with an unjust contest anticipated.
Belgium: Belgium qualified with ease for the World Cup, dominating their qualifying group, winning nine of their 10 games, albeit several against some lowly-ranked sides. Star players such as Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku are all reaching their peaks and the stage is set for what could become a very memorable tournament for the Belgians.
Panama: Panama is more than deserving of their place in Russia, as they were the second-best team in the CONCACAF Hexagon based on performances in matches, though their process wasn’t great. Since qualifying for the WC, Panama has a less-than-impressive record. Also, they have failed to score in four of their last six matches.
Conclusion: This will be the first-ever meeting between the sides. Belgium is expected to win this game comfortably, with the value lying in the number of goals scored in the match. Panama will struggle to contain the flair and pace of Belgium’s attack but all suggesting that they could be vulnerable at the back here.
