Belgium to Win at Half Time and Full Time
Although Belgium will be without a number of their first-team choices in this game, the Belgian national team is too deep for that to worry them, especially against a much weaker opponent like Burkina Faso.
With all respect to the team that was fourth in the African Cup of Nations this year, they aren't a match even for a weakened Belgium and that's why our first prediction is for Belgium to lead at half time and win at the end of the game.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Four of the last five games played by Belgium in all competitions have gone over 2.5 total goals and three of those four games have also gone over 3.5 total goals.
Meanwhile, Burkina Faso averaged 5.00 goals per game in their last three games in all competitions. So, we can see this game going over 2.5 total goals and even both teams chipping in, so you might also try both teams to score since the odds are very good.

Team news, possible lineups, and current form for Belgium vs Burkina Faso
While the home team is the absolute favourite in this game, we can see this being an interesting duel. So, here's a more detailed look at both teams ahead of their meeting:
After reaching the quarter-finals in the last two Euros and the third place in the World Cup in Russia, Belgium established themselves as one of the top football nations in the world. They proved that once again in these WC Qualifiers after winning Group E with some games to spare, so we will see them in Qatar later this year as well.
As we already mentioned, Belgium is without a few of their standards players right now, including Courtois, De Bruyne, Lukaku, Carrasco, and Eden Hazard. Still, the team that will play in the upcoming game is a respectable one nonetheless.
Belgium predicted lineup:
Sels – Denayer, Boyata, Theate – Foket, Dendoncker, Tielemans, T. Hazard – Januzaj, Trossard, Vanaken
This Burkina Faso team is probably the best they ever had since they've managed to finish fourth in the African Cup of Nations earlier this year and that's after leading 3-0 against Cameroon in the third-place game and then losing after penalties. The team was also just two points behind Algeria in the African WC Qualifiers second stage, but we won't be seeing them in Qatar.
The team enters this game after a heavy defeat in a friendly against Kosovo, a game which their star player Bernard Traore missed. He will be in the team for this match, so the team's fans will expect a better showing now.
Burkina Faso predicted lineup:
Ouedraogo – Yago, E. Tapsoba, S. Ouattara, Guiebre – Sangare, Guira, Badolo – B. Traore, A. Tapsoba, Bayala
