England will be looking to leapfrog Belgium into first place when they welcome the Red Devils to Wembley for Sunday’s Nations League clash.
Having comfortably seen off Wales 3-0 in a friendly on Thursday, England are available at 7/4 (2.75) with bet365 to pull off an impressive victory here.
However, Roberto Martinez’s men recorded two victories over this opposition in the 2018 World Cup and are slight 6/4 (2.50) favourites to come out on top once again.
The hosts were held to a 0-0 draw by Denmark in their last Nations League clash, and you can get odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them playing out another stalemate.
After offering runouts to a number of untested players against Wales, Gareth Southgate is set to bring the likes of Harry Maguire, Jordan Henderson and Harry Kane back into the line-up.
Koen Casteels, Thibaut Courtois, Hendrik Von Crumbrugge, Nacer Chadli, and Dries Mertens were all forced to withdraw from the squad prior to Thursday’s draw with the Ivory Coast.
Despite their absences, the Red Devils are still blessed with a formidable wealth of attacking options including Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and the in-form Romelu Lukaku.
Indeed, they have scored 50 goals in their last 14 fixtures in all competitions – an average of almost four per match – inlcuding seven in their two Nations League fixtures last month.
Nevertheless, a record of just one clean sheet in five matches against opponents including Cyprus, Iceland and the Ivory Coast suggests they are certainly vulnerable at the back and could be taken advantage of by Kane and Co..
Indeed, odds of 8/11 (1.73) look like decent value on both teams getting on target in an exciting encounter between England and Belgium.
