Belgium will need to bounce back from their shock 0-1 defeat in their group opener with Slovakia as they take on current group leaders Romania in Köln tomorrow night.

Belgium would’ve been left mightily frustrated not to even take something from their match with Slovakia. The Slovaks struck after seven minutes – and despite Belgium having the ball in the back of the net twice – that strike was enough to seal a memorable victory for them.

Belgium were clear favourites to win Group E, and if they are still to do so, they’ll need their star striker to be at his clinical best, and this article focuses on all the key markets from a Lukaku-based perspective.

Romelu Lukaku Odds Today – Latest Prices

Lukaku is Belgium’s fifth-highest cap holder and their leading goalscorer, with the current Chelsea striker banging in an impressive 85 goals across his opening 116 caps for his country.

The Belgian ace was the leading scorer in Euro 2024 qualification, banging in an incredible 14 goals across their eight qualifiers, four more than nearest challenger Cristiano Ronaldo.

Lukaku to Score Anytime

Unsurprisingly, Lukaku is the bookies favourite to net anytime in this one, and can be backed at 1/1 (2.00) at Bet365 to score anytime on Saturday night which is understandable considering his unbelievable goal-scoring record for his country.

Lukaku to Score First

Belgium will look to bounce back from their opening defeat against Slovakia and will be expected to come out the traps fast, so a higher-priced option could be to back Lukaku to score first at 3/1 (4.0) with Bet365/Unibet. As is the case with the above-mentioned anytime goalscorer market, Lukaku is the favourite to open the scoring in Köln tomorrow evening.

Lukaku to Score 2+ Goals

As already stated, Lukaku was the leading scorer in qualification. Not not only did he find the back of the net in 7/8 of the qualifiers, but he struck on two or more occasions in half of them, and can be backed at 24/5 (5.80) at Unibet to bag another brace.

Lukaku to be Carded

Whilst Romelu Lukaku generally dominates the goal-scoring markets for club and country, he does sometimes get in the referees notebook. Lukaku has been booked eight times and sent off once for Roma this season, as well as in both qualifiers with nearest-challengers Austria in qualification. He is a massive 9/1 (10.0) at Bet365 to collect a card in Köln.

Belgium to Win

Prior to their shock loss to the Slovaks, Domenico Tedesco was unbeaten in his opening 14 matches as Belgium boss (W10-D4-L0), and I’m backing them to bounce back in what is a must-win game for The Red Devils.

Belgium to Score Over 1.5 Goals

The Red Devils banged in 22 goals in their qualification campaign, striking on multiple occasions in 5/8 of them and posses the firepower to do so here too.

Romelu Lukaku to Score Anytime

As already alluded to, Lukaku is Belgium’s leading scorer with 85 goals in 116 caps and scored 14 goals in qualification. He was unfortunate to get two goals disallowed in their group opener, and will get more chances here.
