Euro 2016 Qualifiers: Wales Faces off BelgiumPublished June 12, 2015 by Amir G
Wales face off Belgium atop Group B of the Euro 2016 qualifiers (kickoff 19:45 UK time).
Group B in the Euro 2016 qualifiers heats up today as leaders Wales and Belgium go head to head in the Cardiff City Stadium (kickoff 19:45 UK time). Both teams reign atop Group B with 11 points each, with Belgium having the advantage with 7 more goals than Wales (12 to 5).
So far in the campaign, Wales has racked up 3 wins (Andorra, Israel, Cyprus) and two draws against Bosnia-Herzegovina and today's rival Belgium. Overall, the team has been displaying a solid performance with 7 total goals to their name. The Welsh will put a lot of responsibility on the shoulders and legs of Gareth Bale who is looking for his 50th international goal.
Wales has taken part in a major international football tournament only once in the 1958 World Cup, so the Dragons are sure to give a good fight. Bale will have to exploit the hole in Belgium's defense which will be missing its influential captain, Vincent Kompany.
Leading the group, Belgium has won three games (Andorra, Cyprus and Israel) and drawn two against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Wales. Belgium is a team that is strong with ball possession, something that works in its advantage with dangerous and skilled players the likes of Eden Hazard, Christian Benteke and Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgians haven't lost a match since the 2014 World Cup quarter-final when they suffered a disappointing loss to eventual finalist Argentina. Ranked second with FIFA after Germany, there's a lot to expect from Belgium in every game they play, and while they are not at grave risk today – three points could buy a lot of peace of mind.
