    Match Preview

    Belgium play Algeria in Group H at Estadio Mineirao in Bela Horizonte where they will be looking to get off to a good start before facing their main rivals for top spot Russia in game 2.

    Belgium enjoyed a trouble-free qualifying campaign for the 2014 World Cup and will have aspirations of topping Group H, but Algeria are not to be taken lightly after qualifying in good style themselves. Despite their outside chance of causing an upset though, Algeria are yet to taste success against Belgium in two meetings to date with a 0-0 draw preceding a 1-3 win for Belgium in 2003. Both of those matches were friendlies and there will be a lot more on the line in the first ever competitive match between these nations with Belgium perhaps under more pressure as favourites.

    Kevin De Bruyne has a habit of opening the scoring from midfield and is therefore a good shout for goalscorer bets for Belgium along with strikers Romelu Lukaku and Christian Benteke, while Eden Hazard is likely to be on penalty duty and should also be considered. For Algeria Islam Slimani and Hilal El Arbi Soudani get their fair share of goals, but it's Sofiane Feghouli who tends to get the ball rolling and he could be the best choice in the goalscorer markets.
