Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Belgium's Group B bout with Russia on Saturday night.

Belgium vs Russia (Saturday, 20:00)

Belgium begin their quest for Euro 2020 glory against Russia at the Gazprom Arena on Saturday night.

I've already penned a separate match preview for this St Petersburg showdown which can be read here, but I've since identified another Bet Builder that makes appeal.

The 5/6 (Bet 365) combination that catches my eye is over zero Belgium goals, over three Belgium corners, over zero Russia cards and over one match card.

Roberto Martinez has a squad stacked with star-studded names and as such the Red Devils are one of the favourites to lift the trophy.

The Belgians made the net bulge a staggering 40 times in qualifying so I'm more than happy to back them to notch here against a ropey Russian rearguard that have posted just two clean sheets across their last 11 outings.

I'll also throw over three Belgium corners into the equation – Martinez's men were averaging 6.91 flag kicks per game during their Euro 2020 and Nations League qualifying campaign and they should dominate possession for long stages in St Petersburg on Saturday night.

Experienced La Liga referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz has been selected to take charge of this contest so I'll complete the Bet Builder with over zero Russia cards and over one match card.

The Spanish whistler has a reputation for being card-happy – Lahoz was averaging 4.97 cards per-game across all competitions this season.

Russia were averaging 1.61 cards per 90 minutes en route to this Summer's showpiece and Stanislav Cherchesov's side may have to revert to the dark arts in a bid to stifle Belgium's plethora of attacking talent.

It's also worth noting that the aforementioned Bet Builder banked when these two teams met at the start of qualification and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the same formula on Saturday night.
