Russia vs Belgium Euro 2020 Qualifiers Preview, 16th November 5.00 pm

Belgium and Russia have both already done enough to qualify for Euro 2020. So while this is the top-billed match of the next round of action, there is nothing at stake now. After beating Russia in the first meeting handsomely, it’s unlikely that Russia will produce a big enough home win over the Red Devils to beat them in the head to head for the top spot. Read our Russia vs Belgium betting tips for more.

Russia News and Form

Russia holds a W7 L1 record in the group, the only defeat happening in their first encounter with Belgium. Russia lost 3-1. They have been matching Belgium for goal scoring pretty much throughout Group I. Russia are averaging over three goals per game so far and have only conceded four goals. Three of those, as mentioned, were against Belgium, so that’s six clean sheets in eight games from them.

Even if they can’t get the top spot, can they secure a good home win over Belgium? That would give them a nice moral victory if nothing else. Russia have won their last six European Championship home qualification matches not conceding a single goal in any of those fixtures. Three of their last six wins in such fixtures have been by a 1-0 scoreline. In all matches, competitive and friendly. Russia are W6 L1 in their last seven at home.

Russia vs Belgium Head to Head

Belgium won the first group meeting 3-1
Russia are winless in six previous games against Belgium (D2 L4)
The last meeting in Russia ended in a 3-3 friendly draw in 2017

Belgium News and Form

Belgium have just cruised through this campaign. They have barely had to break a sweat and they have scored at least two goals in each game played so far in Group I. In total they have tallied 30 goals in 8 games. Because it has been so easy from them, their defence has rarely been troubled, and the Red Devils have conceded one goal only in their eight qualification matches, that being in their home win over Russia.

Since the end of the 2018 World Cup, Belgium have posted a W13 D1 L1 record in fifteen international (competitive and friendly). They have star quality in abundance. Their top scorer in the group is Romelu Lukaku, however, it is Russia’s Artem Dzyuba who is the leading Group I goalscorer with a tally of 9. Belgium have had 13 different goal scorers in this qualification campaign, nine of which have scored at least two goals. The Red Devils have won their last six European Championship away qualifiers.

Russia vs Belgium Tips & Odds

Belgium to win at 21/20
Over 2.5 goals at 4/5

Who will win – Russia vs Belgium Predictions

Russia couldn’t handle Belgium in the first meeting and while they get home soil advantage, and they are in good form, the away win still looks the best option. Belgium just have goals in them from all areas of the pitch and are just so difficult for opponents to get a grip on. Away win.
