While the star-studded Red Devils have just enjoyed an exciting World Cup campaign, their opponents have failed to qualify for the last two major tournaments and find themselves in a transitional phase.

Although th is superior quality should see them to victory, recent performances suggest goalmouth action may not be restricted to one end of the pitch.

Considering 10 of Belgium̢۪s last 13 and six of the Netherlands̢۪ last seven competitive matches have produced over 2.5 goals, odds of 29/20 (2.45) offer solid value on the former coming out on top in a match that produces at least three in Brussels.
