Belgium’s national team travel to Macedonia for their fifth World Cup qualifying match. Led by Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany, Belgium should pick up three points this evening. Hititbet.com has Belgium as heavy favourites to continue their unbeaten streak in qualifying competitions.
Belgium, who are currently 19th in the FIFA world rankings, have plenty of top choice Premier League options all over the pitch. Along with Kompany, defenders Jan Vertonghen and Thomas Vermaelen should shut down a Macedonia team that has scored just three goals in four qualifying matches. Strikers Christian Benteke, Romelu Lukaku, and Kevin Mirallas are all great options up top and should crack a Macedonia defence that has only conceded four goals.
Belgium will not take this match lightly as they look to pull away in Group A from Croatia, who currently have a share of the lead with 10 points.
Macedonia’s undoubted player to watch is Goran Pandev. Pandev plays his club football for Napoli and captains Macedonia’s national team. He leads the team in Caps (69) and goals (26).
