The last time that both teams met was on November 16, 2019, on the ninth day of Group I of the qualifying phase for this European Championship. On that occasion, the Belgians crushed (1-4) the Russians with a double by Eden Hazard, who was accompanied by goals from his brother Thorgan and Romelu Lukaku. Gerogiy Dzhikiya signed the goal of the local honor.
By Rode Duivels They face their sixth European Championship with the desire to improve their first two results, such as the semi-finals in Belgium 1972 or the runner-up in Italy 1980. They come from doing good performances with the quarter-finals in the previous edition and the semi-finals of the last World Cup.
Together with Italy, they have been the only teams that have achieved the full in victories (10) in the qualifying phase, but they also have the greatest difference in goals (37) in relation to those scored and those received in said journey.
Roberto Martínez will not be able to count on Kevin De Bruyne or Axel Witsel for this first meeting.
The Sbornaya They face their twelfth European Championship with the last two very disappointing performances as they cannot make it through the group stage. Far is the title in France 1960 or the runners-up in Spain 1964, Belgium 1972 and Federal Germany 1988, all of them still as the Soviet Union.
They already had a double confrontation against the Belgians in the qualifying phase, losing both as a visitor (3-1) and as a local (1-4).
Stanislav Cherchesov will not be able to count on Fedor Kudryashov, who could also miss the second game due to a muscle injury from which he has been recovering for just a week.
Thibaut Courtois – Jason Denayer, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen – Yannick Ferreira Carrasco, Leander Dendoncker, Youri Tielemans, Timothy Castagne – Thorgan Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Dries Mertens
Anton Shunin – Andrey Semenov, Georgiy Dzikiya, Igor Diveev – Yuri Zhirkov, Roman Zobnin, Magomed Ozdoev, Vyacheslav Karavaev – Aleksandr Golovin, Aleksey Miranchuk – Artem Dzyuba
We believe that the dynamics of confrontations between both teams will continue as in previous occasions, but that this time we will see a more conservative Russia knowing that adding a point against the favorite of the group can be worth it to get closer to second place or to qualify as a of the best thirds.
Prediction: Belgium 1 – 0 Russia
