UEFA Nations League

Where: King Baudouin Stadium (Heysel Stadium)
BEL vs ICE Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Belgium will be aiming to secure a passage to the UEFA Nations League finals when they host a stuttering Iceland at Heysel Stadium, in Brussels, on Thursday night (IST).
Belgium have been near-perfect in the UEFA Nations League group games so far, winning twice in as many games. That 100% record gives them a full control of their group as they sit at the top head of Switzerland on goal difference. However, Roberto Martinez’s men have a game in hand over the Swiss side and should they win the game against Iceland, Eden Hazard and Company will have already confirmed their place in the league finals ahead of their meeting with Xherdan Shaqiri’s team next month.
Belgium are in good form coming into this match, losing just once in the last 8 games. That one defeat came against the eventual champions France in the semi-final of the World Cup. While in the last match, the Red Devils drew 1-1 against the Netherlands in an International friendly fixture.
Iceland quite simply failed to live up to the lofty heights of their 2016 UEFA Euro Showing. Having said that, they did qualify for the World Cup which was an equally credible achievement as this was the first in their football history. But the World Cup was an unforgettable experience despite them opening their account with a 1-1 draw against Lionel Messi’s Argentina.
Also, the life in the UEFA Nations League was always going to be tough for them considering they were placed alongside Belgium and talented Switzerland. With no wins from the first three games, the Strákarnir Okkar are already relegated to the League B, and only the pride is at stake when they play mighty Belgium in their last Group A game.
