Featured Game | Belgium vs. Canada

Why you should back Belgium

Belgium will miss star striker Romelu Lukaku, who will not dress for this one due to a thigh injury. But they are a balanced squad led by midfielder Kevin de Bruyne, who is among the best in the world at his position. He can be a dynamic scorer or facilitator and he’ll give Belgium a chance to control possession and tilt the field in their favor.

Canada has some explosive young players, but Belgium appears to have the edge in net. Thibaut Courtois is a star for Real Madrid and he’ll be looking to keep a clean sheet with the world spotlight on him. Belgium have more experience on this stage and faced tougher competition getting to Qatar, which should have them well-positioned to earn three points in this one. 

Why you should back Canada

The Maple Leafs are excellent on defense and the counter-attack. They had a plus-26 goal differential in four matches against inferior competition in the first stage of World Cup qualifying. They then scored the most goals (23) and conceded the fewest (seven) to finish at the top of the pack. They should be playing with nothing to lose after their 36-year absence, and they should be able to exploit the aging Belgium defense. Alphonso Davies and Tajon Buchanan are key players in transition, and Cyle Larin and Jonathan David both have strong finishing ability.

Davies is dealing with a hamstring injury suffered with Bayern Munich and could miss out. But David has 22 goals in just 35 international matches and is tied for fourth in France’s Ligue 1 with nine this season. Larin has 25 in 55 games with Canada, and he and Buchanon are teammates with Club Brugge in the Belgian First Division, so they shouldn’t need any time to acclimate. The team lacks big-game experience, but FC Porto midfielder Stephen Eustaquio, Larin, David and Davies all play in major leagues abroad and have appeared in the Champions League.
