With the lack of value seen in any of the markets as Hungary meet Belgium in the last 16, Will Burns has thought out of the box for his selections. Well, out of the box and out for a corner…

EURO 2016 – ROUND OF 16
HUNGARY v BELGIUM
Now with the lacks of goals in the knockout stages so far, one team who has had no problems finding the net this tournament are Hungary. There are truly one of the surprise packages of the competition, staying undefeated in their three group games, scoring six goals on the way.
Belgium, on paper, have the strongest squad out of the 24 teams included in Euro 2016 but have flattered to deceive in games against Italy and Sweden. I am struggling to see if they can put the sword to the Hungarians that easily. Belgium are valued at 1.70 for a win in 90 minutes but I see that as far too short for any value.
On watching back their games so far, both sides like to use their wingers so I am looking at the corners market for decent prices. Belgium’s greatest threats have been Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne who play as attacking midfielders behind Romelu Lukaku but more times than not are dragged out to the wings.
Hungarian full-backs will look to cut those attacks out so I see a lot of corners comin Belgium’s way. Marc Wilmots’ men won eight, five and 12 corners so far in their group games while their opponents, Hungary have managed four, five and three but significantly they conceded nine against Portugal in midweek. This shows us Hungary do not fear conceding corners, purely confident they can defend these.
I am tipping Over 10.5 Corners however if any of you lot fancy doing some in-play betting I would advise looking into this.
I see Belgium winning overall, whether it be in extra time or on penalities but a Draw valued at 3.45 at 888Sport is my tip for the 90 minute outcome.
TIP: Draw (3.45 at 888Sport)
TIP: Over 10.5 Corners (2.00 at Betfair Exchange)
