15th November 2020 – 20:45, King Baudouin Stadium, Brussels
Sunday’s evening clash between Belgium and England is the most interesting in the UEFA Nations League 5th round. The match winner can climb to the top spot on the table and get just one step away from the playoff stage.
Match Preview & Team News
The hosts are in a good position ahead of this clash as they sit on the top of the table. They are two points ahead of their upcoming rivals and Denmark. Roberto Martinez’s side enjoyed a streak of 13 games without being defeated, but they lost at Wembley in October. Kevin de Bruyne and the lads managed to get back on the winning track as they celebrated against Iceland and Switzerland. Belgium failed to score last time in 2018 in a World Cup clash against France. However, their defense hasn’t managed to keep the clean sheet on the past five occasions. They have been undefeated at home over the previous four years, and they hope to extend that run after this match.
England did a great job at Wembley last month after beating Belgium 2:1 but ruined everything in a 1:0 defeat against Denmark. They got in the position to chase a victory in this game that can get them back to the top spot in the group. Harry Maguire’s red card had a significant impact on their loss against Denmark, and a very tough task is ahead of the Three Lions. The visitors celebrated against the Republic of Ireland on Wednesday and had a successful test ahead of this crucial game. Gareth Southgate’s side lost just once on the last nine occasions and failed to score only twice during that period. However, Marcus Rashford, Alexander-Arnold, and Joe Gomez will be sidelined for this clash and unable to help their teammates.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
A very tight clash is ahead of us, and we expect to see a great battle. The stake is big, but we think the hosts are a bit closer to the victory. Therefore, Belgium should win this game, and the odds are pretty lucrative.
Goals Market Prediction
Both sides have been pretty efficient lately. Belgium managed to find the back of the opposition’s net in the past two and a half years, while their defense is not so tight. Therefore, we should be able to see both teams netting at least once.
