Belgium vs Iceland Live | UEFA Nations League | Date: Thursday, 15 November 2018 | Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET | Venue: Stade Roi Baudouin (Bruxelles)
Belgium will try to recover a three-point cushion at the top of the Group 2 standings on Thursday when it receives training at the Icelandic rock stadium at the King Baudouin stadium. A victory here would further strengthen the confidence of the Belgians in the final game of the group stage against Switzerland on Sunday.
The team led by Roberto Martinez was more than dominant when he played for the first time with Iceland in the group. The Red Devils defeated the Scandinavian 0-3 in Reykjavik with a double from Romelu Lukaku and a goal-shot from captain Eden Hazard.
The Manchester United striker will probably avoid the Icelandic game this time, as he will also miss the club’s recent Premier League and Champions League matches due to injury. However, Martinez still has a multitude of predators in the last third and can predict more than just a case for the facilities of the King Baudouin stadium.
Belgium vs Iceland: face to face
- Belgium has a brutal record against Iceland.
- The Red Devils have 10 wins out of 10 in H2H matches.
- They were particularly dominant during the last two matches (friendly match in 2014: Belgium’s 3-1 victory).
Belgium vs Iceland: Prediction
Iceland has made a breakthrough on the world stage in recent years but has not been in good shape since winning the first pot in their qualifying group for the World Cup (over Croatia). , Ukraine and Turkey).
The Scandinavians have not won in the last 11 games, a series that includes a bad World Cup campaign. They lost five players and tied for the last six games, but the draw came against the world champion France in a friendly played last month.
However, Erik Hamren’s men did not replace him, as they easily lost to Switzerland 1 to 2 in the next UEFA Champions League match. Iceland has scored two or more goals in the last six games and we can not see them holding the extremely offensive line of Belgium here.
