On June 12, a match will be held within the framework of the European Football Championship 2020 between the national teams of Belgium and Russia. We offer you a forecast for this meeting.
The current generation of the Belgian national team holds, perhaps, the last major tournament. In two years, the same Mertens, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Witsel and even de Bruyne will no longer be the same. Now they have to show their best football to finally win a major trophy, which the Belgian fans have been dreaming of for a long time. Russia for Belgium is quite an ordinary opponent, which must be defeated.
As before the 2018 World Cup, fans of the Russian national team do not really believe in the success of Stanislav Cherchesov's wards. Then the Russians managed to shock everyone with their entry, passing to the semifinals. Now the minimum task for Russia is to make it to the playoffs. With Belgium, it will be incredibly difficult, given that the Russian national team has never beaten this strong European team. We believe that the Russians will not succeed here again.
Statistics and figures:
- Belgium has not lost nine matches in a row;
- Russia has just three wins in their last eleven matches;
- During the six official matches between these teams, Belgium won four times, once there was a draw.
Of course, I sincerely want to believe that the Russian national team will be able to fight the Belgians, but the cold calculation says the opposite. Belgium surpasses Russia in all respects, and it is extremely difficult to imagine that the wards of Stanislav Cherchesov will fight the best team in the FIFA ranking. May all the optimists of the Russian national team forgive us, but we have almost no doubt that Belgium will win this game.
