As for Belgium, it has all been too easy for them in this group so far. Back in March, they beat Russia 3-1 at home; Eden Hazard getting a brace. That was followed by a 2-0 win in Cyprus, Hazard amongst the goals again. June saw two back-to-back 3-0 home victories, first over Kazakhstan and then over Scotland. They then battered San Marino and then beat Scotland 4-0 in their last game.
As for Belgium, they too are missing some famous names but Roberto Martínez will still be able to name a frightening side. Thibaut Courtois is firmly established as the number one goalkeeper and will win his 76th cap. Ahead of him will be a 3-4-2-1 formation. Tottenham duo Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen will be a part of the back three. Jason Denayer will get the nod alongside them ahead of Thomas Vermaelen who now plays his club football in Japan for Vissel Kōbe. In midfield Axel Witsel is injured and Mousa Dembélé has been left out after moving to Guǎngzhōu R&F in January. That means Youri Tielemans and Kevin De Bruyne are likely to play together again in midfield.
Leander Dendoncker and Dennis Praet are the other options but will not be needed in a game Belgium will dominate.Out-wide, Yannick Carrasco of Dàlián Yīfāng is expected to keep his place ahead of Nacer Chadli with Thomas Meunier on the right.Further forward there will be changes. Adnan Januzaj will keep his place. But, Divock Origi and Michy Batshuayi will drop out for Dries Mertens and Romelu Lukaku.
