We offer you today match prediction for Scotland vs Belgium
Scotland face Belgium in the 6th round of the EC Qualification. The match will be played on Monday 9 September at 19:45 UK at Hampden Park.
Scotland are ranked 4th in the Group I provisional standings with 6 points after playing 5 games. They started their participation in EC Qualification with a 3-0 loss at Astana against Kazakhstan but then managed to record two consecutive victories with the first one being a 2-0 away visit to San Marino and then managing at home and with Cyprus whom they defeated 2:1 courtesy of A. Robertson and O. Burke. In their away visit to Belgium they lost 3-0, with the home side scoring twice R. Lukaku and K. De Bruyne. It was followed by a 2-1 loss to Russia in Glasgow, but the home side went ahead with a goal from J. McGinn, but A. Dzyuba and a goal by S. O’Donnell brought the victory to S. Cherchesov’s players.
Belgium are the coolest team in this group and they proved it after winning their first 5 matches and only winning. They did 3-1 with Russia at Stade Roi Baudouin in Brussel as Y. Tielemans opened the score and big star E. Hazard added 2 more. Cyprus then took a 2-0 visit to get two consecutive wins at home 3-0 against Kazakhstan and Scotland. The last casualty of Roberto Martínez’s team was San Marino, who won 4-0
We can’t expect miracles from Scotland’s squad against Belgium’s star team as the hosts will not be particularly motivated since it is already clear that the top two spots in the group will almost certainly be for The Red Devils and Russia. However, Belgium do not consider releasing after having only one goal since the start of qualifying and I expect them to win the upcoming match to retain the first place.
