The Red Devils prepare for Euro 2024 with a friendly against Montenegro.

Despite lacking key player like Thibaut Courtois and having stars such as Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku in their 30s, Belgium are still a strong contender under Domenico Tedesco’s guidance. They are undefeated in 12 matches. During this period they won against Germany and drew with England. Tedesco will aim to extend this streak to 14 games (Montenegro then later Luxembourg) before their Euro 2024 opener against Slovakia.

Montenegro, under new coach Robert Prosinecki, have shown promise with victories over Belarus and North Macedonia earlier this year. Building on the solid foundation laid by his predecessor, the Brave Falcons under Prosinecki have secured five wins in their last eight matches. Meanwhile, their only previous encounter with Belgium ended in a 2-2 draw in 2012.

Form

Belgium (All Competitions): D-W-W-D-D

Players to watch

Romelu Lukaku (Belgium)

Romelu Lukaku remains an important part of his team. He will be as important as De Bruyne is for Tedesco and his gameplan. The 31-year-old has 13 goals and three assists after making 32 Serie A appearances. If he can continue this form for Belgium, he could be a player to reckon with.

Stevan Jovetic (Montenegro)

The former Man City forward, Stevan Jovetic is now running his show in Greece with Olympiakos. He has 10 goals/assists in 21 league appearances for his club. As Jovetic is available for his national side, as a 34-year-old senior player in the squad, he would be expected to utilise his experience and deliver.
