Belgium vs Wales


Belgian football for about a decade now produces many of the great talents of world football. Leading on the FIFA chart is the clearest proof of the power of the "Red Devils". Being appreciated as such, however, Belgium has caused disappointments in recent major tournaments. Therefore, the Euro Finals are about to take place and the 2022 World Cup qualifying phase in Europe will be a place for teachers and coaches Roberto Martinez to show their strength. This time gathering, bright names such as Courtois, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Meunier, De Bruyne, Carrasco, Tielemans, Mertens, Lukaku or Benteke were all summoned. These are all stars who have confirmed their place in Europe's top major leagues. Therefore, on an objective assessment, the capacity of Belgium is much more appreciated than that of Wales. Belgium's form is also highly appreciated with 4 consecutive victories. In the last 18 matches they lost only 1 match when they met England, the rest Belgium won 16 matches. In the last 20 home matches, Belgium is unbeaten when drawing 2 and winning 18 matches.


Similar to its opponents, Welsh football also has a great development in the past few years. With stars like Bale or Aaron Ramsey, this team has gradually narrowed the gap to the top names of continental football. Remember, in the Euro 2016 Finals, Wales progressed to the semi-finals. In terms of form, Wales is playing well when they have lost only 1/10 of their last appearances and they won 7 matches in it. However, compared to Belgium, Wales is still quite inferior in terms of qualifications. The match to Wales also suffered great losses when midfielder Aaron Ramsey was not called to focus due to injury. Not to mention, the last 10 trips away from home, Wales won 4 draws 2 and lost 4 matches. In the last 7 away matches in the World Cup qualifying match, Wales only beat the weak teams of Moldova and Georgia. Although the head-to-head record is in favor of Wales with the victory over Belgium in both recent encounters. However, that result happened five years ago and things are very different now.
