Belgium vs Belarus: Predictions
The Red Devils suffered a minor set back on the weekend in their hopes for topping Group E after the Czech Republic held Roberto Martinez’s side to a 1-1 draw which saw the home side keep their place at the top of the group with Belgium second on goal difference.
Romelu Lukaku’s 60th-minute goal brought Belgium back to level terms on Saturday, however, the FIFA number one ranked side were unable to make their majority possession count and were held to an unexpected draw.
Belarus have only played one of their World Cup Qualifiers, but they got off to the perfect start after beating Estonia 4-2 on Saturday with a stunning second-half display that saw Mikhail Markhel’s side fight back from 2-1 down to clinch all three points which has the White Wings just one point behind Belgium having played a game less.
Belgium will be aiming to get back to winning ways with their eyes firmly set on the World Cup trophy after bowing out in the semi-finals in 2018 to the eventual winners, France. Against the side ranked 88th in the world, Martinez will be hoping his side can get back to winning ways after their rare off night against the Czechs.

Belgium vs Belarus: Match Stats
Kevin De Bruyne provided Lukaku with the equalising goal on the weekend, but it was the Manchester City man who scored first for Matinez’s side in their win against Wales last week. Across his 80 appearances for the Red Devils, De Bruyne has netted on 21 occasions and the 29-year-old comes into the game on Tuesday having scored twice in his last three appearances for his country.
In their last 14 games, Belgium have found the back of the net 49 times and will be hoping they can get back to their usual ways in front of goal after only managing to put one past the Czech’s on Saturday. Belarus are currently ranked 88th in the FIFA rankings which is the lowest-ranked side they have played since 2019 when they beat Cyprus (100) 6-1.
These two sides have never met in their history, however, both will be looking for maximum points with Belarus able to leapfrog their hosts in Tuesday with what would certainly be an unexpected win for the White Wings.
