One of the games of the week in the International break will see Belgium take on Bosnia & Herzegovina on Thursday in Brussels. As far as International football goes Belgium have one of the best squads in football from Eden Hazard of Chelsea to captain Vincent Kompany of Manchester City, they can draw on the striking talents of Evertons Lukaku and Liverpool's Christian Benteke and the new £50million man Kevin De Bruyne. This is a serious squad of talented footballers who got to the last eight of the World Cup but who have struggled in this qualifying campaign and lost to Wales 1-0 last time out. Belgium trail Wales by three points in the Group phase but are also going to lose out on the head to head should it come to that and therefore Belgium need to keep winning games and hope that Wales slip up twice.
Bosnia Herzegovina are actually fifth in the league table but with an important win against Israel last time out they have brought themselves back into contention in the group as a win here would bring them level on points with Belgium. This is a good side led by current Roma players Pjanic and Dzeko this is a side that will work hard for each other and although they got off to a slow start in this league they have the players capable of winning any game on any give day. What is going to be really interesting to see is how Belgium try to curtail the influence of Dzeko on proceedings as the former Manchester City striker is going to be key to everything Bosnia do going forward.
This is not a game I really like with regards to value as I have been unable to find anything that stands out. Instead I am going for a small take on both teams to score. Belgium are strong defensively though and that is what is stopping me taking this as bigger bet. I think both teams have the strikers that are capable of scoring given the smallest of chances.
