Cyprus vs Belgium tips KeviNordvick
Belgium saw off Russia 3 – 1 while Cyprus were 5 – 0 winners over San Marino, who are easily the group’s whipping boys. Cyprus will be at home and hoping to make it count after picking just the third win in 15 matches. The last time Cyprus met Belgium, in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, it did not end so well for them, as they slumped to a 4 – 0 loss and they do not carry a very strong form to this clash, though they have managed five wins in their last 10 home matches. The Euro Cup qualifiers have not been their forte, with 10 losses in the last 15 and with two wins in 10 home matches in the same qualifiers paints a picture of what to expect from them here. With just two clean sheets in the last 17 matches, and heading to face a side with the on form Eden Hazard, this doesn’t look like it will end well for Cyprus. In 33 matches, Belgium have lost just two. They have 12 wins in the last 15. Belgium have straight wins in their last five Euro Cup qualifiers and have lost just one in 11. They have never lost to Cyprus in 11 meetings, winning 10 and drawing one, and in the process, have scored 26 goals, while conceding just three. In the last five meetings, Belgium have kept clean sheets.
