Batshuayi worth chancing

Belgium vs England
Saturday, 15.00

Belgium take on England in the Third Place Play-Off, after both deservedly lost in their Semi Finals.

Both sides really struggled to create many chances, Belgium could only manage 0.54 xG against France, and England 0.73 xG against Croatia.

For the second time in this tournament it's tough to judge how seriously both will take a clash, with changes expected.

It may well be another match between the 'squad' players, and if so, Michy Batshuayi is expected to get a start.

Batshuayi has not had a lot of game time, but when he has played, he has been on the end of a lot of good chances.

The Chelsea forward has racked up 3.01 xG in his small amount of time on the pitch in Russia, so does get himself in good positions to score.

Backing him to score first looks the play in this bronze medal match.
