Euro Cup 2020
(21 Mar 2019)
Belgium vs Russia
After humiliating loss with a 5-2 away hammering at the hands of Switzerland last November, Belgium will look to regain some pride with an opening Group I victory over last summer’s World Cup quarter-finalists Russia. Last year Belgium participated really well at the World Cup where they made it to the semifinal and were kicked-off from it by the further champions. As for Russia, they looked pretty well at the domestic World Cup where they easily made it to the playoffs.
- Belgium have scored at least two goals in three of their last four clashes against Russia
- Seven of Russia’s last nine wins have been settled by at least a two-goal margin
Belgium vs Russia Prediction
At home, Belgium hasn’t lost since September 2016, so should be confident of inflicting defeat upon Russia. Back-to-back defeats for Russia will have dented morale and they’ll be keen on getting back to winning ways here. Belgium should win this easily although we are going for goals in this match.
Football Prediction: Over 2.5 @ 1.75
