Match status: 2020 UEFA Nations League
Kick-off:
Venue: King Baudouin Stadium (Brusel)
Things are shaping up pretty nicely in Group A2 with Belgium and England grabbing victories last time out. Slight favorites to topple the pack, Belgium easily dispatched minnows Denmark few days ago, firing two goals past their sorry opposition.

Meanwhile, Iceland fell to defeat versus England, no thanks to a late penalty going against them. Still seeking their first points of the campaign, Our Boys will be harboring hopes of causing an upset in this crunch clash with the Red Devils.

Belgium vs Iceland Team News

There is no doubting Belgium’s winning credentials. Their squad is littered with some of the finest players across Europe. You can bet Roberto Martinez will be having selection headaches when attempting to piece his starting XI before any game.

The Belgians breezed through Group I of the European Championship qualifiers, winning all ten of their fixtures to advance to the finals. They never seemed phased by any opposition, ensuring they dispatched every side that came their way.

With the clinical Romelu Lukaku spearheading their attack, they registered a whopping 40 goals – the highest in the qualifying phase. While scoring for fun, De Rode Duivels also kept things tight at the back, conceding a measly three goals all through the campaign.

As the Nations League rolled in, Roberto Martinez must have demanded maximum concentration from his players as they look to embark on a good run here. They began on the perfect note, securing a routine 2-0 victory over Denmark.

On the front foot right from kick-off, Jason Denayer fired the Red Devils ahead as they looked set for victory. As the clock wound down, midfield maestro Dries Mertens poked the ball home to bag all three points for his side.

Even though they were far from the free-scoring form that saw them average four goals per game last year, the Red Devils will be happy to have clinched maximum points anyway. Impressively, they pulled off this win without the involvement of Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois.

With the Belgians brimming with confidence ahead of this fixture, Iceland will have their work cut-out in a bid to salvage something positive here. They began their campaign with a narrow 1-0 defeat to England on Saturday.

Having kept England’s attacking frontline at bay for most parts of the game, Our Boys were given away by a penalty kick, one Raheem Sterling safely slotted home. They will feel hard done by the loss, given how resilient they were on the night.

However, as Hamren’s men take their game to Brussels on Tuesday, they will be looking to upstage the Belgians to get their campaign up and running.
