Belgium
VS
Spain
Belgium had a disappointing Euro 2016 in France, being eliminated in quarter-finals by Wales 3-1. With so much talent in the squad, the team couldn´t handle the pressure and didnt achieve the goal to get to the finals. Now with Euro left behind, Belgium will now focus on the qualyfing phase to World Cup 2018 in Russia, and to start their preparation they will start in a friendly against Spain. The good news for Belgium is that some of the most important players in the squad seem to recover some form in their teams, like Eden Hazard that was the main contributer to Chelsea vitory in the last weekend, but he is not the only one showing good form also De Bruyne, Lukaku are making good games. The biggest absense from belgiums to this game is the defender Vincent Kompany who is still dealing with some physical problems.

 

Like Belgium, Spain had a very dissapointing Euro 2016, they started the group phase good but a defeat against Croatia in the last game of the group phase, pushed Spain to a though opponent in the next round, it was Italy, that won that game 2-0. For the WC2018 qualifiers Spain suffered many changes. For start Del Bosque left and for his place Spain hired Julen Lopetegui, the former FC Porto coach. And he already made an impact by leaving the legendary Iker Casillas out of the squad for this games. He is a coach that fit this Spain, because is style of game is the Tiki-taka, he is a follower of Pep Guardiola game style, so it will not be a dramatic change in style for the spanish team.

 

I give a little edge to Spain here, i think altough Belgium have great names in their squad, what i saw in the Euro was a team full of names, but with litlle team work, Spain come here with new blood in their squad, players like Asensio, Lucas Vasquez will want to make an impact, and i expect Spain to win or atleast handle a draw here.

Lopetegui to control the selection of Spain will be a comedy LOL at FC Porto had no hands and now will be more of the same
