Belgium warm-up for their World Cup adventure with a friendly test against Egypt on Friday in Kuwait. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.
Over 2.5 Goals
Belgium complete their World Cup 2022 preparations with a friendly test against Egypt on Friday in Kuwait, where Robert Martinez’s troops will expect to record a comfortable victory. When the Egyptians last played a World Cup qualified team in June, they were dismantled 4-1 by the Korea Republic and an even-stronger Belgian outfit should be able to do a similar amount of damage at the Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium. With that in mind, a plunge into the goals markets could be a smart move and experts' premium soccer tips tip over 2.5 of them to hit the net.
Belgium -1.0 Goal Handicap
Our second football predictions for Friday’s friendly encounter also sides heavily with Belgium. As we discussed above, Egypt conceded four times when they last faced a World Cup-calibre outfit and Belgium have the firepower to match the four-goal haul achieved by the Korea Republic against the Pharaohs in June. We expect a powerful Belgian team to overrun Egypt in Kuwait on Friday and they should be able to cover a modest one goal handicap with relative ease.
Belgium Predicted Lineup
Dedryck Boyata, Alexis Saelemaekers, Dennis Praet, Christian Benteke and Divock Origi were all left out of Belgium's World Cup squad and won't be available to feature in Friday's friendly. Head Coach Roberto Martinez didn't name a single uncapped player in his selection for Qatar.
Predicted Lineup for Belgium: Courtois – Debast, Alderweireld, Vertonghen – Meunier, Tielemans, Witsel, Castagne – de Bruyne, Hazard, Batshuayi
Egypt Predicted Lineup
Egypt have gathered a strong squad in Kuwait for their tough test against Belgium and Head Coach Rui Vitória will likely settle on a 4-3-3 formation against their European opponents. As always, Mohamed Salah is the team's star attraction and talisman in a squad otherwise packed with domestic players.
Predicted Lineup for Egypt: El Shenawy – Gabr, Hegazi, Ashraf, Hamdy – Trezeguet, Marmoush, Elneny – Salah, Zizo, Mohamed
