Belgium’s golden generation has not yet paid tribute to its enormous talent and potential they possess. The team played brilliantly during recent World Cup until it met with the France’s national team in the semifinals, having suffered a defeat with the score of 1-0.
Just a few seconds of losing of concentration turned in a goal, and Samuel Umtiti got a triumphant applause! This Thursday they are returning to take revenge.
Russia also hit their fans last summer with two wins and two matches in a draw. And they reached 1/8, having beaten even the World Championship favorites, the Spanish national team.
Frankly saying, Belgium are in a completely different dimension in quality compared to Russia. This opinion was reflected in the League of Nations, where Belgium played in the elite League, while Russia competed in League B.
From the statistics of the meetings of both teams since 1996 there were only 5 matches, of which Russia could not win either of them, while Belgium won 3 times and 2 draws.
