Here's Adam Drury's tip for Belgium v Tunisia to get you started...
Under 1.5 1st half goals
Tunisia tightened up considerably in the second half against England, denying the Three Lions’ best attacking players the space to create many chances.
Should they adopt a similar method from the start against Belgium, then they should ensure a quiet start to the match.
Tunisia +2 –
Belgium were ponderous against Panama, only improving in the second half when their obstinate opposition began to tire.
Tunisia will present a significantly trickier task – they are ranked 21st in the world, while Panama are 55th – having drawn 2-2 with Portugal and lost just 1-0 to Spain before a late 2-1 defeat to England.
Belgium to score a penalty
The group stages have been defined by penalties, and Belgium look strong candidates to win another here.
Eden Hazard and Dries Mertens enjoy teasing defenders inside the box, while Tunisia are unlikely to go unpunished again if they continue to manhandle their opponents in the area from set-pieces.
Tunisia to receive over 1.5 cards -
Nabil Maaloul’s side were lucky to escape any cards against England, after employing the dark arts to good effect in their attempts to see out the match.
They were handed at least one yellow card in all of their qualifiers, while Panama received five when they took on Belgium on Monday.
