Belo Horizonte is the backdrop for favourites to win Group H, Belgium's opening match when they take on outsiders to make the Second Round Algeria.
Whichever way you slice it, this looks like being a straightforward opening match for Belgium. Perhaps the only thing which will stop them from getting off to the perfect start is their own mentality, but Marc Wilmots will be sending his players out to do a professional job. With little value in the match odds market it could pay to take Belgium to win to nil as they look easily capable of keeping a clean sheet against Algeria, while a Correct Score bet of 3-0 makes appeal for punters playing that market.
This match looks a good opportunity to utilise William Hill's Goalscorer Second Chance offer with Belgium likely to get amongst the goals and plenty of attacking talent to choose from. First Goalscorer punters are spoilt for choice with Romelu Lukaku arriving in Brazil on the back of a rather successful domestic campaign and Eden Hazard always likely to pop up with a goal, but Kevin De Bruyne has a knack of opening the scoring for his country and is available at more enticing odds.
