Belgium Run of Form

The Nations League took centre stage for the country this year and they had a so-so tournament. The Red Devils finished with three wins, a draw and two defeats after six games. The worrying aspect will be the heavy loss to the Netherlands who were the only other major team in the group.

One thing is for sure, the talented team has the ability to put away lesser opposition, but when the going gets tough things could crumble.

Canada Run of Form

Mixed is probably the best way to describe the recent form of John Herdman’s side. Dominant 4-0 wins in competitive fixtures have been sandwiched by defeats to Costa Rica, Panama and Honduras. They have been similarly erratic in friendlies with their last four non-competitive fixtures leading to two wins, a draw, and a loss.

Questions have to be asked about whether they’re capable of hanging with the top sides in the tournament with such spotty form.

Recent Head to Head

Shockingly there has been only one meeting between these teams in recorded history. It was a 2-0 win for Belgium back in 1989, since then they’ve been kept apart.

Belgium vs Canada Prediction

The Red Devils are likely to come away from this contest with a win. They have too much quality on the pitch to fall to a side that isn’t putting their best foot forward lately. While we think it could get tough for them later in the tournament, they should sail through the group phase with ease.
