Greece hopes to upset Belgium in tonight’s clash between the two sides. A win for Greece will see them overtake Belgium, in the top of Group H. Although, Belgium has been brutal in the opening four rounds winning all four.

Belgium would make a big step towards the World Cup in Russia 2018 with a win against Greece.

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez and assistant Thierry Henry have been performing an impressive job at the start of this qualification. The Belgium team has the most goals in this World Cup qualifiers, and they have only conceded one goal in their first four matches.

The Belgium team apears unstoppable in the final third with players like Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, Dries Mertens and Radja Nainggolan all hitting their form for their clubs.

Romelu Lukaku is the topscorer in Premier League and is also the leading scorer for the Belgium team with five goals in the first 4 matches. Lately, with a brace against Hull City.

Greece had a disastrous campaign ahead of the Euro 2016, when they ended last in their group. It looks like the team have recovered as they have three wins in their opening four matches in the World Cup qualifiers campaign.

The two sides haven’t played each other since 2012. Back then, it all ended in a 1-1 draw. The goals were scored by Nacer Chadli and Dimitrios Salpingidis.

The clash between the two sides will take place this evening with kick off at 20:45 CET at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brusel.

 

Belgium (probably): Courtois; Meunier, Alderweireld, Vermaelen, Vertonghen; Nainggolan, De Bruyne, Dembele; Carrasco, Mirallas, Lukaku.

Greece (probably): Karenzis; Tzavellas, Maniatis, Sokratis, Stafylidis; Samaris, Tziolis; Fortounis, Petsos, Siopis; Mitroglu.
