This is an unfair matchup, because there isn’t any comparison between both teams.
It is the same thing as Manchester United playing against a Non-League side at Old Trafford.
Belgium is leading the group, with 5 wins and 1 draw, with the draw being in their match against Greece.
Besides that, they are one of the best attacks in this qualification stage, maybe even the better one, but it is late now, and I don’t want to check it now, since it is a bit irrelevant here also.
The Belgians have scored 24 goals and have only conceded 2 while Gibraltar has scored only 3, having conceded 24, being one of the worst defences at this stage.
Gibraltar only was able to keep their opponents to a 1-goal margin on their last match, where they lost 1-2 against Cyprus. In all other matches, they were battered.
1-4 against Greece, 4-0 against Estonia, 5-0 against Bosnia and still 0-6 against Belgium, on a weak exhibition from the Belgians, who played without any pace.
As for Belgium, besides those 6-0, they have still battered Estonia 8-1 and Bosnia 4-0.
Hazard has been injured since May, and he still hasn’t played this season, but he will play in this match, for at least 20 minutes.
Besides him, De Bruyne, Mertens, Carrasco and Lukaku will all play. On Sunday, the Belgians will play at Greece, which can make Martínez rotate some of his usual starters, but even their backups are high quality players.
Furthermore, against opponents of this calibre, many times it is preferable to play with those players, because they don’t ease up so much like the usual starters.
An important aspect is that the leagues have just started, so Gibraltar’s players shouldn’t be on the best physical shape at the moment.
Which added to their lack of quality, can even increase the already huge difference between both sides.
Belgium vs Gibraltar – Betting Tip and Prediction:
You might think that it is easy to bet on a match like this.
But we will also depend on the Belgians’ will, considering that if they are motivated and interested.
They can win this match by 8,9 or even 10 goals.
