Belgium Stats & Form
Belgium is the best team in the world that has never won the World Cup. It is tough to bet on a team that has never won before to finally do it but Belgium really possesses the quality to do so.
Kevin de Bruyne is one of the best players in the world and the highest paid one in the English Premier League. Romelu Lukaku is one of the best strikers who is literally unstoppable when he is on top of his game.
Belgium proved their class once again finishing on top of Group E in the European qualifiers with 20 points, 5 more than Wales. Belgium had 6 wins and 2 draws in the qualifiers finishing as one of seven undefeated teams.
Belgium has only 4 wins in the last 10 games which does not seem very promising but once the World Cup begins their game will be on another level.
After missing two straight tournaments in 2006 and 2010, Belgium has been one of the best teams in the last two. They finished 6th in 2014 and made a step forward finishing third in 2018.
Canada Stats & Form
Canada was one of the biggest sensations in the qualifiers worldwide as the North American team has found its way to their only second appearance at the World Cup.
Canada finished on top of the qualifiers in CONCACAF with 28 points as many as Mexico in second place. Canada finished the qualifications with 8 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses.
Canada was on a six-game winning streak until February this year, and has lost 3 of the last 5 games since then.
Atiba Hutchinson is the team captain and the biggest star of the team but Cyle Larin from Club Brugge is the player who is expected to be the one who scores.
The only previous World Cup appearance Canada made in 1986 where they lost all three games and failed to score in each of them, finishing the tournament in the last 24th place.

Belgium vs. Canada Betting Odds
Belgium is a favorite in the game against Canada with -391 odds in their favor while Canada is at 1150. The odds for a draw are set at 460.
The total goals margin is set at 2.5 with -150 for over and 121 for under.
Belgium is a team that is seen as one of the favorites for a while now and maybe the World Cup in Qatar will be the one where they will definitely take over the football world. They finished third in the last World Cup and with that experience, they seem ready for a step further. Anyway, it is a long tournament, and they need to start strong. Going against Canada in the opener seems like a great deal for Kevin de Bruyne and the rest of the crew who will have a chance to boost their confidence with an easy win against the team who finished at the top of the CONCACAF qualifiers. Despite that fact, Canada is still a huge step behind the best teams in the world and they will stand no chance against Belgium.
