The Red Devils will look for a good margin win to boost their morale ahead of the UEFA Euro 2024.

Belgium will be playing their group stage matches of the UEFA Euro 2024 in ten days. The Red Devils have a very rich and old football history and are one of the best teams in the world currently. Luxembourg on the other hand also has an old history, but they aren’t able to create such an impact on world football.

Such friendly matches could be beneficial for Luxembourg because facing tough opponents can boost their growth and learning to move forward. Both teams are incomparable in aspects of their quality, but still, football is a game of possibilities and uncertainties.

If we talk about the FIFA rankings of both teams, the hosts stands at third position, whereas Luxembourg stands at 87th position. Belgium haven’t lost a single game in their last five matches, whereas Luxembourg have given mixed results.

Kick-Off: 

Saturday, 8 June at 11:30 PM (IST)

Location: King Baudouin Stadium, Brussels, Belgium 

Form: 

Belgium (Last five international matches): W-D-D-W-W

Words will fall short while praising this Belgium player’s capabilities. Lois Openda is one of the best forwards in the world today. He plays for RB Leipzig club in the Bundesliga and while playing in 34 matches for them this complete season, he has scored 24 times and assisted seven times.

Openda is the one who can create a difference and can become a huge problem for the defenders of Luxembourg. In the Champions League as well, Openda has scored four goals for his team in the last season while playing in eight matches.

Gerson Rodrigues (Luxembourg)

This 28-year-old forward is one of the best players in the current Luxembourg team. Gerson has scored for his team on every important occasion.
