WhichBookie racing analyst Andrew Blair White provides a preview and betting tips for races at Fairyhouse on Wednesday 7th July.
The lunchtime kick-off on Sunday 27th November sees Belgium take on Morocco at the Al Thumama Stadium.
This should be one of the easier games in the group stages for the number 2 ranked team in the world. Having already played Canada and with a somewhat tricky fixture against Croatia ahead, this is a must-win game for Roberto Martínez’s side if they are to finish top of Group F and give themselves the best chance of a favourable draw in the knockout stages.
Realistically, Morocco will be hoping for a second-place finish to progress out of the group. That’s not an easy task when you look at the teams they have been drawn with but picking up a point in this game would surely boost their chances by a considerable amount. Their upcoming match against Canada on 1st December is a tough one but definitely winnable and they’ll be looking to head into that final group game with more points on the board.

I can’t see past a win for Belgium in this game who have players such as Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and several others who are capable of winning matches. They’re priced at 8/15 for the win which I think is more than reasonable and although not the most appealing odds for a single, I do think that it’s by far the most likely outcome.
Players such as Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri along with Ayoub El Kaabi and Ryan Mmaee can pose a threat in front of goal but with the attacking options Belgium have, I fully expect them to outscore their opponents in this game.
Along with a single on Belgium to win, I also like the look of Belgium & Over 2.5 Goals at a price of 11/8 and also Kevin De Bryune to score anytime given the Manchester City midfielder has been excellent for his club this season and if he’s able to transfer his form into the World Cup, he could be one of the players of the tournament.
