Belgium vs Russia: the recent form of both teams:

Roberto Martinez’s men have their eyes firmly on the prize as the number one ranked nation in the world. Belgium qualified to the tournament flawlessly without dropping a single point, taking 30 points from the available 30. Wales upset in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals still sticks like a needle, they will look to overcome those unwanted defeats and bring the trophy home. Belgium enters the Euros on the back of a nine-game unbeaten run across all competitions.

On the other hand, Russia has realistic expectations of a top-two finish in the group. Since causing an upset in the 2018 World Cup defeating Spain in shootouts the team has fallen numb. Russia’s recent form is certainly mixed, to say the least, and will need an ideal performance from the team to defeat the World no. 1.
