Belgium vs Iceland

Three rounds of matches are over in the UEFA Nations League and now we are heading to the fourth round of matches in the group stage. The third round saw some exciting matches like the one in which the young England team defeated the world number one ranked Belgium team.

Belgium will face Iceland on Wednesday after a shocking defeat against Iceland. Belgium will look forward to bounce back from their loss against England. Meanwhile, Iceland will have to find a way to defeat the mighty Belgians to avoid relegation to Section B.

Preview

Belgium were on a 12-match winning streak which spanned across almost two years. But the mighty Belgians have not tasted victory in their last two fixtures. Both Ivory Coast and England halted their 12 match winning streak as Belgium drew and lost against Ivory coast and England respectively.

De Bruyne vs Sigurdsson

Belgium are now one point below the Three lions and they will look forward to narrow down the gap. The Red Devils will also look forward to increase their goal difference which might become decisive next month.  Meanwhile Iceland who were thumped by Denmark last weekend will hope to get something out of their game against Belgium. Iceland who have no chance to qualify further will probably concentrate on their Euro 2020 playoff against Hungary next month. But at the same time they will hope to finish this campaign strongly.
