Russia and the Belgium team meet on the first round of the European Championship qualifying Group I on Thursday. In addition to the two surprise teams of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the underdogs from Cyprus, Kazakhstan and San Marino will also play in Group I. The Scots are probably the big stranger in Group I and most likely able to annoy the two favourites teams. The game will be held in at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels will be led by a Romanian team, also, the main referee who will be involved in this amazing contest is called Ovidiu Haţegan.
If you take a look at the last two games of the teams, we expect a game with a lot of goals. They won four, drew against the Netherlands and suffered a bitter 5:2 defeat by Switzerland. The Belgium team has scored 14 goals at home and has conceded seven goals as well, which means an average of 3.5 goals per event.
The Russians failed in their own country in the quarterfinals against runner-up Croatia. In six games after the World Cup in their own country, coach Stanislaw Chershessov got an average of more than 2.6 goals per contest. Moreover, they took the momentum after the World Cup and defeated twice Turkey (2:1 and 2:0) and the Czechs (incredible outcome 5:1). The last two games, however, weakened a bit and lost in Leipzig against Germany 0:3 and in Stockholm against Sweden 0:2.
A draw was faced with a deficit of 5: 9 three defeats. Statistically, in the game of both teams at least three goals. Belgium has been undefeated at home for 15 games, with Russia having only two wins in the past eleven visits in Hungary and Turkey. While Belgium now has to do without midfield engine Marouane Fellaini. Fellaini resigned after 87 internationals appearances from the national team. The Russians are missing due to injury Roman Zobnin and Ilya Kutepov. In the top game of Group I, you can expect a lot of goals in this game with a victorious for the domestic team.
