  • Competition: UEFA Nations League

  • Kickoff: 19:45 UK/20.45 CET
  • Venue: King Baudouin Stadium (Brussels)

Belgium suffered an unexpectedly heavy 1-4 defeat to the Netherlands on the first day of the UEFA Nations League, their first competitive defeat in front of their fans since 2009. However, Belgium quickly took the burden off their backs as they thrashed Poland 6-1 in the second round, and then managed to collect four points from the next two matches, which means they are two points behind the group leader. Meanwhile, the Welsh have not tasted the sweetness of victory from the first four rounds of the UEFA Nations League, suffering three defeats in that time, while they won the only point against Belgium at home, in a 1-1 draw. However, the most important thing for the Welsh is that they secured a ticket to the World Cup in Qatar, for the first time since 1968, by beating Ukraine in Cardiff 1-0 in the play-off final.

Belgium vs Wales Betting Tips: Home/Over 2.5

Believe it or not, Belgium have achieved just one solitary triumph from their last seven clashes with the Welsh, while four have ended without a winner, including a 1-1 draw in Cardiff in the third round of the UEFA Nations League. Namely, Belgium is only three points behind Oranje in the group, so that means that The Red Devils will do everything in their power to secure all three points in front of the home fans, in front of whom they were great. However, a lack of defensive consistency was the main problem for this team in recent months, keeping just one clean sheet in their last eight competitive games.

Meanwhile, Wales could have collected more points in this year's edition of the UEFA Nations League, but their defense was not stable in key moments, conceding 8 goals in the opening four games. But we should praise their resourceful and impressive attack, which found the back of the net in each of the first four games, including two goals in Rotterdam against the Netherlands (2-3). Namely, the Welsh are aware that they are the main candidates for moving to League B, but we believe that The Dragons will not give up so easily and we expect them to continue their goal-scoring streak against Belgium.

Coach Robert Page will try to patch the hole in the defense of his team, as The Dragons have conceded 2+ goals in four of their last five away games, but have also found the net in each of their last five. The best proof that Belgium have the ability to destroy their opponents even without their star Romelu Lukaku was the convincing 6-1 triumph over Poland. So, Welsh should not be underestimated, as they have enough quality in attack to score at least one goal. However, Belgium have the better team on paper and we expect them to prove their worth with a routine triumph.

Belgium Team News

Coach Roberto Martínez has named a group of 30 players for the September matches, and the new addition to the national team is 18-year-old Zeno Debast who has impressed many.

Centre-back Jason Denayer still hasn't found his new club since leaving Lyon at the end of last season, so it's hard to say the coach will count on him, although he received the call.

However, Belgium will be without their main star Romelu Lukaku due to a muscle problem, but his return is expected in less than 2 weeks, so he will be available for the trip to Qatar.

Wales Team News

Key central midfielder Aaron Ramsey will be out for 2-3 weeks with a hamstring tear, and Joe Morrell and Matt Smith should be partners in the center of midfield.

The 33-year-old Gareth Bale should once again be the main figure in attack of his team, despite losing his place in the starting XI at current club Los Angeles in recent weeks.

Wales will also be without the services of a key player - Harry Wilson, who is still recovering from a knee injury sustained in pre-season, but Robert Page believes he will be fit for Qatar.
