Belgium suffered a shocking result when last seen in action, suffering a 5-2 defeat at the hands of Switzerland which saw them surrendering their top spot in League A group to Granit Xhaka and Co. As a result, Roberto Martinez’s men are out of the UEFA Nations League finals.
But that loss shouldn’t have any repercussions over their ultimate target which is to secure a position in the Euro 2020.
Russia, meanwhile, had a decent outing in the Nations League, finishing 2nd in the League B group, suffering just one loss. In fact, the 2018 World Cup host nation are on the up, it seems. After their surprise deep journey in the showpiece event, they have suffered just one loss in the six competitive games.
The Red Devils should be aiming to win the group. Not only they are the first ranked football team in the world, but the kind of talent Roberto Martinez has at his disposal, winning the Euro 2020 is not a tough ask for Belgium’s golden generation.
The visitors arrive in this match in good spirits. They are unbeaten in the last four including two wins over Turney which saved them from getting relegated into League C.
Apart from Belgium, the Russians should look at this group with optimism. The kind of form they are showing of late means, the 2nd spot is a reality for Stanislav Cherchesov and his players.
