Yannick Carrasco returns to contention after missing the Switzerland game due to club comittments, while Dedryck Boyata and Vincent Kompany have been ruled out with injury.

Belgium vs Finland Team News

David faces Goliath in Brussels, but Belgium will have to prove their worth on the field this time out. The Red Devils are scoring goals for fun at home and seeing that the Finns are on a four-match losing run at the moment, I believe that there is a big value in betting on Marc Wilmots’ troops. Taking everything into account, Eden Hazard and Co. are likely to prove a handful for the opposition back line.

Betting Tip: Belgium/Belgium

Odds: 1.80 (4/5) @bet365
