Belgium vs Russia

Stade Roi Boudouin, Bruxelles (Brussels)

MATCH PREVIEW

Belgium and Russia kick off their Euro 2020 qualifiers at Stade Roi Boudouin on Friday, with Russia looking to return to winning ways against a very strong Belgium Side.

Belgium are unbeaten in their last 15 home matches, and they will expect to get off to the perfect start at home. The Red Devils were disappointed to not make the 2018 FIFA World Cup final, eventually winning the third-place game. They will certainly be hoping for a positive result when they host Stanislav Cherchesov's men, tthough they'll have to do it without key contributors Romelu Lukaku and Thomas Meunier, who have both withdrawn due to injuries.

On the other hand Russia had a great World Cup, reaching the quarter-final against all odds, including a win against Spain. However, they have since endured back-to-back losses to Germany and Sweden, a slump they will need to bounce back from if they want a chance at qualifying for Euro 2020.

The last fixture between Belgium and Russia was an electrifying encounter that ended in a 3-3 draw, while Belgium's last home defeat came way back in 2010.
