After goalless first half with Panama, Belgium gets the win in the second half in their opening World Cup game, with 2 Lukaku’s goals and one more from Mertens.Eden Hazard has a heavy match with Panama’s team with a lot of hard tackles, the Coach Roberto Martinez hopes that his Premier league star will not get the same treatment from Tunisian ’s, and he will give a better performance for Red Devils.
They get out of their group in 4 of their last 5 since 1986. In last World Cup, they reach the quarter-finals.
Tunisia gives theirs best in the last match with England and they need just a little more to come out with points from this match, but a late header from Kane give the victory for Three Lions.

Belgium vs Tunisia Predictions
Belgium is favourite for this match and they will want to grab the win, with this attacking power (14 goals in last 5 matches) they will damage Tunisians, with 4 clean sheets in last 5 matches it will be even harder for Tunisia to score a goal.
Tunisia plays in defensive style but even with that approach they are without a clean sheet in last 4 matches and it will be really hard for them to get it in this match. They didn’t have the most powerful attack, in England’s match they were completely outplayed.
We expect Red Devils to win with two or more goals and to get one more clean sheet on his way to final in Russia.
