Russia last dined at the top table of the Euro 2020, suffering a defeat on the back of a run of one point from seven matches. For their part, Belgium have enjoyed eight victories in 12 home fixtures at this level of late, so their opponents could be set for a rude awakening in what is their debut game.
Russia are on a roll when it comes to their involvement in the Euro 2020 matches containing over 2.5 goals, with 19 in a row subscribing to this particular scoring model.
This has also been the case in 18 of the last 21 second-tier fixtures involving Belgium, so the deadlock should be broken at some point in this late-season clash.
Euro 2020 meetings between these two sides have a history of producing goals at both ends of the pitch, with this being the case in 28 of the most recent 34 clashes.
Add to that the fact that both teams have scored in 12 of the previous 18 Russia matches and 14 of the last 21 Belgium games at this level, and we have a recipe for action in both penalty areas.
Belgium vs Russia Prediction
Belgium have been like an absolute juggernaut at home stadium in recent times, winning various of their previous 20 Euro 2020 matches at the venue and scoring at least three times in each of their last six.
