The match is over.
Score: 9-0.

Let’s be honest and not beat around the bush with this one. We all know who’s going to win this game and we all know it’s going to be a battering of epic proportions, but the best way to bet in this one will be the final score which could be a tasty one.`


Belgium will comfortably win this one and there won’t be a shadow of a doubt about it, but it’s a question of how many they can score as opposed to if they can score.

Belgium have been almost perfect in qualification, winning all six games and conceding just once at home against Russia.

San Marino, unfortunately, haven’t won a single game in qualification and haven’t even managed to score a goal, so it’s probably best to avoid both teams to score bets with this one.

The highest margin of defeat for the visitors heading into this game so far has been 9-0 away in Russia, so Belgium will have a lot of work to do in order to break that record.

The hosts’ last two defeats have come in semi-finals, against Switzerland in the Nations League and France in the World Cup, so this could be tournament that their mentality switches and they can actually win a trophy.

The home side are by far and away clear favourites so don’t even waste your money on anything other than a high scoring Belgium win. Go for 9-0, it’s the best odds you’ll get for literally anything in this market.


Betting Tips

In order to find something that’s worthwhile, you’ll have to find bet’s like this one, which is over 8.5 goals. It looks like a total slam dunk of a bet when you consider the players on show, and this is among the best online betting odds for this round of international action.888sport have it as 31/20.

Again, let’s not try to over think this. Hardly any bets will be valuable and hardly anything will be worth your while so just go big and bet for the thrashing, rated at 8/1 by 888sport.

It may not be the most common scoreline but take a look at the teams and you’ll understand why it’s the best bet you’re going to get out of this.


Head to Head

To shock of absolutely no one, Belgium have won all seven games against San Marino, scoring 37 goals and conceding three.


  • The biggest win was back in 2001 when Belgium smacked San Marino 10-1. Somewhat surprisingly, only Bob Peeters scored a hat trick and his three goals came from the 76th minute to the 88th.
  • The closest game was a 2-1 Belgium win in 2005 when Daniel Van Buyten had to score the winner in the 65th minute after a heroic display from San Marino.
  • The first scorer in this fixture for San Marino was in that 10-1 win, while the second and third goals came in the 2005 loss and a 4-1 loss in 2001.
  • The most recent fixture was rather kind on San Marino, as Belgium only scored four times on them with MichyBatshuayi starring with a brace.
