Belgium v Russia Preview

Even though qualification for Euro 2020 hasn’t even started yet, Belgium are one of the front runners to lift the title next summer. It would frankly be a major upset if the Red Devils did not qualify from their group. The last time that Belgium faced up to Russia was back in 2017 when they met for a friendly and that game produced a thrilling 3-3 draw. Belgium are undefeated against Russia from their five previous meetings, the Red Devils winning three of those.

Belgium did have a bit of a slip in their Nations League campaign as they didn’t top their group. A crushing 5-2 away loss at Switzerland in the final round of matches, meant that Belgium finished second to the Swiss on head-to-head. Belgium did win two home games in the group against the Swiss and against Iceland. Actually, the away loss against Switzerland saw a six-match undefeated streak of form that Belgium were on, snapped. Belgium have scored at least two goals in all but one of their last seven fixtures.

Russia did not do too badly in the Nations League. They did bottle things a little bit in their final match as they made a trip to Sweden needing only a draw to top the group. Russia lost that game 2-0. Coupled with a friendly international defeat against Germany that is back-to-back losses which Russia have taken ahead of their Euro 2020 qualification opener.

Before that it though they were on a six-match undefeated streak of form (90 minutes) extending back into their brave World Cup 2018 campaign. This will be the first major qualification campaign since going for Euro 2016 when they did book an automatic qualification spot. As World Cup 2018 hosts they did have an impressive campaign before running out of steam in the quarter-finals. Russia have only scored in one of their last four games so they have gone off the boil a bit up front.
