Belgium will look to wrap up top spot in Group F as they prepare to host Azerbaijan in their final Euro 2024 qualifying game on Sunday.

Azerbaijan head to the Stade Roi Baudouin in Brussels on a high after a 3-0 win over Sweden last time out.

However, the Red Devils looks set to bring Azerbaijan back down to earth in a game that should have goals at either end.

Belgium vs Azerbaijan Betting Tips

  • Belgium to win and both teams to score @ 10/3 
  • Romelu Lukaku to score 2+ goals @ 15/8 

Team news

Belgium boss Domenico Tedesco decided to rest star striker Romelu Lukaku for the friendly against Serbia this week but the on-loan Roma striker is set to return this weekend.

The Red Devils will still be without midfield talisman Kevin De Bruyne as the Manchester City star remains on the sidelines with a hamstring issue, while keeper Thibaut Courtois and striker Charles De Ketelaere are also injured.

As for Azerbaijan, manager Gianni De Biasi is likely to go with the same side that earned that impressive 3-0 win over the Swedes in Baku on Thursday night.

Match Odds

Belgium are 1/25 to claim the three points on Sunday, with Azerbaijan at a whopping 40/1 to cause a massive upset in Brussels. The draw is available at 12/1.

After beating Sweden last time out, Azerbaijan are 7/1 in the double chance market to get a win or draw on the day.

Belgium to win and both teams to score @ 10/3

Belgium are deserved favourites to win this match and it’s something they should be able to achieve with relative ease on Sunday.

The Red Devils have faced Azerbaijan on five previous occasions, with the Belgians winning four and drawing the other.

Belgium are currently on a 10-game unbeaten run, winning seven and drawing the other three.

On home soil and with stars set to return they should end up on the winning side but don’t discount Azerbaijan getting on the scoresheet.

The Azerbaijanis showed against Sweden the attacking threats at their disposal, especially midfielder Emin Mahmudov, who bagged a brace against the Scandinavians.

Belgium to win and both teams to score looks to be the way to go here and offers good value at 10/3.

Romelu Lukaku to score 2+ goals @ 15/8

Set to return fit and fresh to the starting line-up, striker Lukaku is more than capable of bagging at least a couple of goals in this game.

With 23 from 33 matches in European Championship qualifying, Lukaku has an impressive international record and his form for Roma has been also strong this season.

Scoring six goals in his first 10 appearances, Lukaku can add to his tally on Sunday and is 15/8 to bag two or more on the night.
