Dries Mertens scored one and created another as Belgium eased to a 2-0 win over Denmark on Saturday evening.

Roberto Martinez has a number of selection dilemmas to consider before they entertain Iceland in Brussels, as they look to make it 12 games unbeaten. Iceland stifled England but squandered a golden chance to equalise late on after Brescia midfielder Birkir Bjarnason fired wide from a stoppage-time penalty.

With PAOK centre-back Sverrir Ingi Ingason suspended having been sent off for two bookable offences minutes earlier, how will Iceland respond against the world's #1 ranked side? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Belgium vs Iceland Betting Tips

Belgium were good value for their 2-0 win over Denmark and did so without two influential stars in Manchester City playmaker Kevin de Bruyne and Real Madrid's Eden Hazard. Hazard remained an unused substitute in Copenhagen, while de Bruyne was given leave to attend the birth of his third child Suri with wife Michele over the weekend.

It's likely Hazard will start here – his younger brother Thorgan did on Saturday – but de Bruyne's status remains unclear. Judging by the way they beat Denmark, theoretically they shouldn't have many issues against weaker opposition in Iceland.

Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans and Borussia Dortmund's Thorgan both created two key passes, while Yannick Carrasco hit the woodwork. Inter forward Romelu Lukaku was fairly quiet by his standards, with a team-low 24 touches throughout.

Assuming he starts ahead of Anderlecht's Landry Dimata at centre-forward again, he'd relish the opportunity to link up alongside the older Hazard. The last time they played alongside each other? Belgium beat Russia 4-1 and they combined for goals in both halves.

It'll be a difficult task for Iceland to stop their hosts once they get into full flow, so it's important Erik Hamren's men start quickly and make the Red Devils uncomfortable. Easier said than done.

Belgium vs Iceland Correct Score Predictions

Expect rotation from Martinez to keep his players fresh and competition healthy, but Belgium will nonetheless be stunned if they don't breeze past Iceland unlike England's disappointing display.
