Belgium vs Scotland (By: Meese)

Belgium didn't have many problems overpowering Kazakhstan in front of own fans, on the contrary. They took an early double lead in the first fifteen minutes thanks to goals from Mertens and Castagne.

Lukaku sealed their victory at the start of the second halftime, as the quality difference was obvious but also the fact that they lowered down the tempo to save some energy. With three victories out of the first three rounds, they are justifying the role of a big favorite in this group.

Scotland had even more difficult game than what was expected at home against Cyprus in a 2:1 in in the end.

The game itself was more open than expected with the Cypriots threatening many times too and could have walked away with a better result on the other day. In the end, the Cypriots made it interesting with an equalizer in the 87th minute, but the Scottish team reached the victory in one of the next attacks.

After disappointing defeat away to Kazakhstan, Scotland improved with wins over San Marino and Cyprus, but still, it's too little comparing that they didn't impress in either of those matches and have to fight against Belgium and Russia for first two positions.

Neither of the teams has suspension or injury worries ahead of this one. Belgium might rotate some of the players, just to keep them fresher, but the quality remains the highest.

Belgium is having a perfect start and can now become a huge favorite to clinch the Euro 2020 ticket early, in case of a victory here. The Scottish team struggles on the road against even middle-quality teams in Europe and with the way they play in attack - it's difficult to see them staying competitive in this one for too long.
