Back Lukaku and Falcao To Score In Belgium and Colombia Draw

Belgium 2.00  The Draw 3.35  Colombia 3.70

Tonight's 8pm GMT kick off may be listed as a friendly. But with both sides having already qualified in style for next year's World Cup, this meeting provides an ideal opportunity for two dark horses to test mettle and flex muscles before the showpiece in Brazil.

Qualification form

Bolstered by a crop of potential world beaters, much of whom are lighting up Europe's top domestic leagues, Belgium cruised through their qualifying group undefeated. Meanwhile, Colombia also currently boast a golden generation of sorts, with starlets such as James Rodriguez and Rademel Falcao in their ranks, and the deadly duo helped book their place by finishing second behind Argentina in the South American qualification round.

Draw on the cards

Tonight's match up will be brimful of attacking talent on either side, but both Belgium and Colombia also boast fearsome defensive records in recent years. Bearing in mind that this will serve as a chance to trial potential squad members while retaining the momentum built from qualifying, it's logical that neither side will want to lose - but on the same token may not go all out to win.

Having not been to a World Cup since 2002, Belgium will welcome the South American test Colombia bring, but will be more than happy with a score draw; a result that would no doubt constitute a fair success for Colombia, whose last World Cup was 1998.

With this in mind, backing a score of 1-1 at odds of 6.75, or under 2.5 goals at 1.72, represents the best value. 

Goalscorer betting

In-form Everton loanee Romelu Lukaku is expected to start for Belgium, and he can be backed at 5.60 to open the scoring. Meanwhile, penalty-taking Colombia hitman Falcao is 3.25 to score anytime

Score prediction: Belgium 1-1 Colombia at 6.75.
