Eden Hazard To Score And Belgium To Win William Hill 5/2 (Enhanced odd 3/1)*
Eden Hazard looked a passenger in week 1 which was all the more surprising after finishing the season for Chelsea in very good form. It may well have been the defensive solidity of Italy. He should see more time and space versus Ireland. William Hill are also offering up to €25 matched bet for new customers.
