On June 12, the first match of the Russian national team at the European Championship 2020 will take place. Stanislav Cherchesov's wards will fight with Belgium. The famous football commentator Viktor Gusev gives his forecast for this game.
Unlike Russia, the Belgian coaching staff announced a bid for the tournament in mid-May. Roberto Martinez has so many stars that many top coaches can envy his choice. Kevin de Bruyne probably won't play for the first match against Russia, but Belgium still have stars without him.
The most difficult opponent for Russia. After all, Belgium is now ranked first in the FIFA rankings. And in the last four head-to-head matches, Belgium has beaten Russia four times.
However, Gusev suggests betting not on the outcome, but on the fact that more than 2.5 goals will be scored.
