Belgium vs. Canada: Early World Cup Odds, Predictions And Head-to-Head Record

Belgium looks ahead with a clash with Canada in their World Cup Group F opener on November 23 and will be hoping to build upon their 3rd-place finish at the 2018 Russia World Cup. 

The Red Devils, who are ranked 2 in the FIFA World Rankings, will hope to make short work of 33-ranked Canada and nullify their hopes of clawing their way out of the group. 

Canada shocked the world by finishing top of CONCACAF qualifying, ahead of the powerhouses of Mexico and USA, to qualify for only their second World Cup and their first since 1986. 

Our first prediction is Belgium to win by 2 at +300 with BETUS. Check here for the full rundown on the World Cup betting odds, the two teams’ head-to-head record and where and what time the match is on locally.

Eden Hazard hopes to leave an indelible mark in Qatar

Belgium fell short against France 4 years ago in the semis and reached the quarter-finals at the last 2 European Championships. 

The Red Devils are slowly becoming another Golden Generation that has failed to live up to the billing and this is very likely to be many of the stalwarts’ final World Cup. 

Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Axel Witzel, Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Dries Mertens all have more than 100 caps and Kevin De Bruyne and Thibaut Courtois are not far from reaching a century. 

With such a host of superstars among the list of 30-somethings, it is probably now or never in terms of lifting this trophy. 

Another untroubled qualifying run saw the Red Devils claim 6 wins and away draws against Wales and the Czech Republic, with an impressive 25 goals scored. 

When attacking the Belgium vs. Canada World Cup 2022 odds – a 2-1 win is a solid bet. 

Our Prediction

On the other side of the pitch, we have Canada, who had a fairytale qualifying journey. Their opening match against Belgium will be the outfit’s first World Cup game in 14,777 days, having last competed in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.

Englishman John Herdman is behind the wheel for Canada and has 8 wins and 4 draws from his last 14 fixtures. Canada lost to France, Hungary and the old Soviet Union at Mexico 86, failing to even score a goal.

The Canadians have not been gifted the easiest group – with European powerhouse Belgium, Morocco and Croatia all occupying Group F. 

Talisman Alphonso Davies will be leading the line for the North Americans with winger Tajon Buchanan, Lile forward Jonathan David and defender Stephen Eustaquio will be integral cogs in Canada’s plight for a last-16 spot.

We are reaching a bit here but if Canada can catch out a rusty Belgium, there’s a small chance the Maple Leafs could grind out a hard-fought draw here at +450.

Belgium vs. Canada Head-To-Head

The two sides last played each other in 1989 – where Belgium won with goals from Marc Degryse and Jan Ceulemans. This will be the first match between the two on the international stage and one to put in the calendar.
