Three games take place this Sunday on the Euro 2016. The calculator is now gone and there is just one game to decide which team will make into the quarter-finals.

It has been a strange competition with some of the weaker teams reaching the knockout stage. Hungary is an example of that, with the team facing Belgium this Sunday. Looking closely the games that will take place this Sunday, this is the one with most value for us to pull the trigger, even believing that Germany and France might also go through to the quarter-finals, but the betting markets present less value on those two games.

 

Hungary vs. Belgium
Even though Hungary hasn’t lost a single game so far, with a victory over Austria and two draws against Iceland and Portugal, the difference between these two teams is huge in terms of potential. Hungary presents some problems on their defense, with the center backs conceding too much space for the strikers. Ronaldo explored those weaknesses on the previous game, scoring two goals after crosses and on this game, Lukaku should do the same and create many problems to the Hungarian defense, with De Bruyne and Hazard creating the opportunities for Lukaku to score.

Despite presenting some good transitions on their game, Hungary had also some luck on the group stage. Their 2nil victory against Austria occurred in a game where they were dominated during the whole game while against Portugal, they scored three strange goals in very odd situations. For this game against Belgium, we expect them to present the same strategy since Belgium should take control of the ball due to their higher quality.

Willmots changed Belgium midfield in all three games, with just one player staying on all of them, Witsel from Zenit. Witsel is for us one of the best box to box midfielders nowadays and on this game, he’ll count with the support of Niagollan or Dembele on the midfield, two players that clearly improved the offensive quality of the team after a poor first game with Fellaini unable to support so well in the attack De Bruyne and Hazard.

 

Betting Overview
Despite not losing a single game so far on this competition, the difference between this two teams is huge, with Belgium also having more experience to play this decisive games. The individual talent on Belgium side can decide a game and that is a big edge on a 90 minutes decision game, therefore, Belgium to qualify at -333.33 is good enough to use as soccer pick on a parlay.

The straight win for Belgium -142.90 at Betsson is also not a bad bet when looking to the value/risk of having the win just in 90 minutes, especially when compared to Hungary’s last game where Portugal just paid around at -200.00.

Regarding the goals market and looking to the way both teams defend, Hungary concedes some space and in this game, one goal can open it, which makes the Over 1.75 or even with higher soccer odds the Over 2.00, two markets that can be used pregame or live to win more value in a game where Belgium can cover the line all by themselves.

In this kind of game is hard to predict if Hungary is going to score because Belgium has on the defense their weakest point but the truth is that they only allowed one goal on this competition, which makes the Both Teams to Score a market to skip and just stick with Belgium to win or qualify for this game.
