Belgium: Has almost reached European Championship qualification ( Recent Form: W W W W W )
Belgium is still clear after six rounds in group I of the European Championship qualification, so it is only a matter of time before the Red Devils finally have their ticket for the European Championship next year in their pocket. National coach Roberto Martinez therefore uses the remaining European Championship qualifiers as a stepping stone towards the European Championship. "He insists on that," said Dries Mertens. "He wants to change our mentality, so that we ourselves also believe that we can become European champions." With this golden generation, Belgium will definitely be one of the contenders for European championships next year. However, Belgium cannot play full war strength against San Marino. Kevin De Bruyne and Vincent Kompany, among others, had to give up injuries, while Thibaut Courtois, Leander Dendoncker and Romelu Lukaku are also big questions for Thursday night. However, this offers opportunities for players such as Club Brugge star player Hans Vanaken, who is often overlooked by Martinez despite his sparkling shape. "The competition is going very smoothly," said the midfielder. 'However, with the national team there are many players who are in good shape. And they also belong to the absolute world top, certainly in my position. " In any case, it is of course up to Belgium to show San Marino all corners of the field. The KBVB leaves nothing to chance and has a flash mob in store in the stadium.
San Marino: Worst football country in Europe ( Recent Form: L L L L L )
San Marino has been active on the global football scene since 1990, but has not managed to get off the field five times in those nearly thirty years. The last time San Marino managed to win a draw was on November 15, 2014, at home against Estonia (0-0). April 28 is probably a national holiday, because on that day in 2004 the country managed to achieve its only victory after Liechtenstein was defeated 1-0. San Marino is the red lantern carrier in the FIFA world ranking with 210th place, so it's not for nothing that The Great San Marino Challenge is widely seen as the toughest challenge in the popular computer game Football Manager. All in all, it will not surprise you that San Marino has not yet been able to break the pot. In its six duels, the country already had 28 goals, and is even waiting for its first goal. Last month's first game at the tiny San Marino Stadium ended in a dutiful 0-4 victory for Belgium, which was quite a bit of a hold. Earlier during this European Championship qualifying series, Russia made a 9-0 monster win after all from the benevolent amateurs and semi-pros of national coach Franco Varrella.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, with a group of players considered the golden generation of Belgian football, one victory is certainly not enough for the home crowd in the next match. In San Marino's 3 away games, they all have to lose with very strong scores, even 9 goals in the match against Russia, so I believe that with the current powerful force Roberto Martínez's team will do the same thing.
