New dawn for the Red Devils

Belgium are one of a number of countries embarking on a new era during this international break with Domenico Tedesco replacing Roberto Martinez as manager.

The Red Devils crashed out of the World Cup at the group stages, scoring just one goal.

While captain Eden Hazard has since retired from the international game, there is still plenty of quality in their ranks.

Sweden are 21 places below Belgium in the Fifa rankings and did not qualify for the tournament in Qatar.

They have not won a competitive home game in 90 minutes since October 2021 so Belgium should come out on top this evening.

De Bruyne to step up

Dynamic Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has been named as the new captain and his quality is in no doubt.

Despite being criticised by Citizens boss Pep Guardiola, the 31-year-old still has more assists (14) than anybody else in the Premier League this season.

His record at international level is similarly brilliant, with 46 assists in 97 appearances for Belgium.

BetVictor has boosted the odds of this selection to 14/5, which given his record looks good value.

Boosted goals look good

Another boosted selection from BetVictor is for a goal to be scored in both halves.

While Belgium struggled to net at the World Cup, it could be a totally different story under Tedesco.

The handbrake should be off as the players look to impress the new manager and the Sweden game could be the perfect opportunity to build some confidence.

The Swedes conceded goals in both halves in three of their six Nations League games last year as they were relegated from League B.
