Belgium v USA Betting Preview – World Cup 2014

With the Red Devils yet to hit top gear in the competition, they are going to have to be wary of the gritty, physical and battling USA. The Europeans go into this one as favourites as they are in good form in terms of results, they are getting the job done, going unbeaten in their last six. Can the USA heap some pressure on them, in what will be their second ever meeting at the World Cup? Their first meeting was all the way back in 1930, a game which the USA won 3-0.

In the four meetings between the two nations since then, Belgium have won all four of them and have kept a clean sheet in three of them. A Belgium to win to nil wager is a long shot in this one at a price of 2/1 for this latest meeting. Their last coming together produced a six goal thriller back in May of 2013, the Red Devils winning the friendly match 4-2. For the first time ever, Belgium have won all three of their group stage matches, which was also the first time that they have won three consecutive matches in the competition.

Wood look for late goals to come from Belgium. It seems to be a theme with them, their last six goals at the World Cup all coming in the final 20 minutes of games. Belgium have won their last six matches played now, conceding just the two goals in that current form. Keeper Thibaut Courtois still has never lost a match for Belgium. They aren’t as high scoring of a team as many would think and with Romelu Lukaku not looking anywhere near his best, there could be value in Eden Hazard at 2/1 in the anytime goalscorer market.

The USA have qualified for the knockout stages in each of their last four World Cup appearances, and are looking to match their quarter final run from back in 2002. The USA don’t hold on to the ball a lot, they are very direct and that could cause Belgium problems. Only Iran had less average possession in the group stage than the USA did, the Americans only had nine shots on target in their three group stage matches, becoming the only side to make it through to the knockouts in not having reached double figures in shots on target. They aren’t too solid at the back and they have conceded in each of their last 16 World Cup matches against European opposition.
