Belgium, the world’s top-ranked national team according to FIFA rankings, enters EURO 2020 ready to establish their worth after losing in the quarter-finals to Wales in 2016.

Belgium were relentless on their way to the European Championships, cruising through qualification without a hitch. The Red Devils have played 13 matches in total since the end of the lockdown in 2020, losing just one, a performance that has enabled them to enter the final phases of the UEFA Nations League while also placing them in a great spot in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

Russia

Meanwhile, Russia had a quite smooth path in the qualifiers as well. Stanislav Cherchesov’s team finished second in their group, winning eight of their 10 games but losing both games against the Red Devils.

Russia managed to reconstruct their steps this year, winning two of its three World Cup qualifying games and entered the Euros with a draw and a win against Poland and Bulgaria, respectively.

Head to head
