czech republic croatia betting tips Both Belgium and Ireland enter on contrasting notes. For Ireland, they are haunted by what might have been. Conceding an own goal that cost the Irish three points and a very strong start in their Group E efforts. In fact, had Ireland emerged victorious the Irish would have been sitting pretty at the top of the table with Italy who pulled off an impressive triumph over the Belgians in their Group E opening. Belgium is a sleeping giant, the 2-0 defeat they suffered at the hands of Italy is not something that we find disparaging by the least. In fact, the Belgian defeat and Ireland not losing to Sweden allows us to take back Belgium with some enhanced value had we joined in. Nevertheless, the odds in this fixture are deceptive and dangerous, as we are faced with a dash of juice on Belgium and limited return on the other two outcomes, suggesting this contest may be a toss-up outside of Belgium winning this one outright. While we like Belgium in this one, you can never be sure of what peril may be lurking as Ireland for all intent and purposes has already begun punching above its weight. As we have indicated previously, the Irish are a team not known for their football supremacy but they have shown they can take on anyone. Sweden simply got lucky and was gifted a point, Ireland can approach this reality in two manners. First, Ireland can let their misfortune which is contrarian to their historic luck eat away at them and be a snack for the Belgium football machine or they can strive to prove that they are a team that should have beaten Sweden and stack up as well as any other squad in this tournament. The choice is theirs. Bottom line, this fixture can go in a multitude of directions and there is not enough value in any option to opt in. Once again, we will employ a reactionary approach to this fixture depending on how it plays out. Likely, Belgium will win this one and if this were to be the case, Ireland would likely bode tremendous value against Italy if the Italians were to win against Sweden. At the end of it all this game is a must-win for both teams so any suggestion of a draw should be thrown out the window. If you pushed our backs against a wall and ask us who would win outright, we would immediately say FIFA’s number two ranked team in their world rankings but as we have seen in many favorites throughout the tournament, the juice is simply not worth the squeeze. Keeping this narrative in mind, we will once again call for a no play in this second Group E fixture between Belgium and the Republic of Ireland on Saturday’s plate.
