The Red Devils will play their last home game at 8.45 pm in the run-up to the controversial 2022 World Cup in Qatar. On Sunday there is the Netherlands-Belgium. Practice matches against Iraq and Egypt will follow in November.
Belgium counts 7 out of 12 and must win against Wales to have a chance of a place in the Final Four in the Nations League. Then points gain in and against the Netherlands is also necessary. Not every Red Devil is looking forward to those duels in the Nations League. According to Thibaut Courtois, those matches are gaining in importance with the World Cup approaching.
No Romelu Lukaku against Wales. Jérémy Doku has been on the bum for a while. Amadou Onana and Dedryck Boyata are part of the selection. They are not one hundred percent fit and remain on the sidelines. Jason Denayer is training along.
Michy Batshuayi starts against Wales. Will Roberto Martinez try something in the back? He would be able to unpack again with the Dendoncker-Alderweireld-Vertonghen trio. He may choose Timothy Castagne this time. A more agile player than Leander Dendoncker. In that scenario, the national coach could use Zeno Debast as a substitute.
The suspected line-up:
Castagne – Alderweireld – Vertonghen
Meunier – Witsel – Tielemans – Carrasco
De Bruyne – Batshuayi – E. Hazard
