Belgium have it all to do on Thursday in the World Cup, as they face Croatia knowing they need to win to progress into the knockout stages of the tournament.
Roberto Martinez’s side suffered a shock defeat to Morocco last time out to put them third in Group F, a point adrift of their opponents who they could essentially dump out of the tournament if Morocco, as expected, see off a tricky Canada side.
The Red Devils have attracted criticism from outside and there appears to be disharmony within the camp with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Jan Vertonghen exchanging remarks in the media, but despite their struggles so far in this World Cup they still have the quality to knock out the 2018 runners-up.
This World Cup has been a great one to take advantage of with some of the best free bets and World Cup betting offers around, so why not get in on the action and sign up with one of 101 Great Goals betting offers?

Canada v Morocco
Morocco to win
Morocco are unbeaten in their last 7 and haven’t conceded a goal in their last 6. They manage games well and are well adapted to games similar to Qatar conditions, so we expect another good performance from them keeping it tight at the back and using their attacking threat to beat Canada, who have lost both their World Cup games. Although Canada have a good attacking threat, they’ve conceded too many goals and see the Moroccans getting another win here.
Croatia v Belgium
Over 1.5 match goals
Belgium have to win to keep their world cup dreams in their hands. They have to assume Morocco will get a point at least based on their defensive record so must beat Croatia, so we can expect to see a very open game. Croatia will be full of confidence after their 4-1 win against Canada so will want to go for goals too. Belgium should come through here, but we expect an end-to-end game with plenty of chances, with both teams pushing for the win.
Costa Rica v Germany
Over 2.5 match goals
Germany are bottom of their group going into round 3 so will want to score plenty of goals against a very weak Costa Rica to guarantee 4 points which should be enough if Spain can help them out against Japan. Goals breed confidence so Germany will look to attack from the off to finish is good form and build some confidence ready for the knockout stages.
Japan v Spain
Spain to win
Spain look strong and have dominated both their games and will be disappointed not to secure top spot after a late Germany equaliser. They’ll want to put that right and they’re likely to dominate the ball and create chances. It is unlikely Spain will rest players here as the top spot in the group is not yet secured. Morata offers Spain something different with the runs in behind and a natural front man so we expect him to get a start here after scoring off the bench in the first 2 games. This should be a relatively comfortable Spain win.
