Belgium vs Wales Match Preview & Team News
After topping their UEFA Nations League group in the latest international window, the home side is set for another successful campaign. Belgium secured a place in the final tournament in this competition, and they aim to win the trophy. Roberto Martinez’s side has been excellent lately, and the hosts tied four victories in a row. Romelu Lukaku and the lads have been clinical in front of the oppositions’ net, netting at least twice per match during that period. However, Belgium needs to tighten their defense, as they conceded in six out of the previous seven games. The hosts are the top favorites for 1st place in the group, and they want to open this campaign with a victory.
Wales has also been on a good run lately, and the visitors secured the promotion to the UEFA Nations League top division. They missed the chance to win just once during that campaign, and the only draw came against Ireland on the road. Ryan Giggs’s side lost just once in the previous 14 matches, and they search for a successful campaign in these qualifiers. Wales has been very disciplined lately, as they conceded just once in six UEFA Nations League games. On the other hand, Gareth Bale and the lads need to improve their finishing, as they scored more than one goal just once in the last eight games. The visitors need another defensively-solid display to get something from this clash.
