Belgium vs Russia: Euro 2020 Betting Tips, Odds and Free Bets

Whatever you think of the official world rankings, Belgium’s billing as the best international team in the world adds a certain amount of expectation ahead of the start of their Euro 2020 campaign against Russia.

Russia have the benefit of home advantage which they used to great affect in the 2018 World Cup but Belgium are the odds on favourites to get their tournament off to a winning start and will be difficult to stop in Saint Petersburg.

Belgium vs Russia: Our Prediction and Best Bet

Belgium have a fearsome array of attacking and creative players who will always give them a chance of a goal. They are a little less convincing in defence though even with the three man defence that Roberto Martinez likes to employ. Russia can exploit that defence with a goal but Belgium should have enough to win so well like the look of a bet on Belgium to win 2-1 at 17/2 with bet365*.

Belgium vs Russia Betting Odds

The bookies make Belgium odds on favourites to win their opening match but this is not going to be easy and the game could well be settled by just the finest margins.

Belgium To Win Odds

The best price available on Belgium to win in Saint Petersburg is the 20/21 that 888sport are quoting.

Belgium vs Russia: Draw Odds

If you think that Russia will come good at another international tournament but don’t quite have enough to get the better of this supremely talented Belgium side then how about backing the draw at 13/5 with Betfred.

Russia To Win Odds

Russia took everybody by surprise with their run through to the latter stages of the 2018 World Cup. Those who think they can do something similar again will be tempted by the 7/2 that Unibet are quoting on the underdogs.
