Iceland vs. Belgium Match Analysis and Prediction

Belgium set to square off against Iceland this week in the UEFA Nations League while bouncing off their defeat to England. The match schedules for Wednesday night with kickoff at 9:45 pm.

The home side needs to avoid a defeat against the world’s best team. A loss this Wednesday will see the side relegated back into Section B. Iceland is currently last on their group standings without a point.

12 match winning streak was tainted in a week following back to back fixtures without recording a win. Despite failing to register a win against England or Ivory Coast, Roberto Martine looks set to end their two matches winless streak with a trip against a struggling Iceland home side.

The side failed to register a win against Ivory Coast courtesy of a late penalty. The same case happened against the Three Lions as a deflected Mason Mount shot found its way at the back of the net. The side is currently one point shot of England. Martinez will be looking to build on their goal difference that might become decisive next month.

Iceland still has hopes of finishing at the top of the Group. The only realistic option the side remains ahead of the clash is maintaining its stance in the top tier. Their heavy defeat to Denmark leaves the side four points adrift of third place.
