England vs Belgium tips and predictions: Three Lions need to impress in latest Euros warm-up

England will be keen to impress when they welcome Belgium for a big international friendly at Wembley Stadium this Tuesday night (1945 GMT).

It’s fair to say that England’s much anticipated clash with Brazil was hugely disappointing.

A potential thriller between two historic names in international football flopped more than watermelon-flavoured Oreos and smokeless cigarettes.

We’re not getting our hopes up for Tuesday’s showdown and there’s good reason for that.

While England were stinking the place out against Brazil, Belgium played out a dull 0-0 draw away against Ireland.

The Red Devils did a lot of experimenting over in Dublin and it will be interesting to see whether that approach continues at Wembley.

Should Domenico Tedesco field his best available side, England may be in for a tricky test.

Belgium are unbeaten in 12 matches and last tasted defeat against Morocco at the 2022 World Cup.

England were unbeaten in 10 before their lacklustre display against Brazil. The Three Lions mustered a measly xG of 0.85 on Thursday and that certainly won’t be enough to topple Belgium.

Both teams could do with a momentum-building victory at Wembley as we head closer towards the European Championships.

Despite this, we’re backing both teams to score in a draw. Backing 1-1 in the correct score market offers good value, though a safer route is the under 2.5 goals market.

Seven of the last nine head-to-heads between these teams have seen the under 2.5 goals bet land.

 

Team news

There’s an injury crisis in the England camp with Kyle Walker, Harry Maguire and Sam Johnstone all unavailable for the match.

Belgium were without Romelu Lukaku for the match in Ireland, but the Roma striker could return at Wembley.

Kevin de Bruyne won’t feature but Belgium could unleash Jeremy Doku and Dodi Lukebakio in attack.
