Match Preview

Iceland entertain Belgium in League A, Group 2 of the new UEFA Nations League (UNL), and will be searching for their first ever win against against the side that finished third at the summer’s World Cup (WC).
Unfortunately for Iceland, they are already in serious danger of relegation to League B after a dismal showing against Switzerland. They managed just one shot on target in a 6-0 loss, with that result equalling their heaviest reverse in a competitive match since October 2001.
The Iceland team is now a shadow of the one that famously knocked England out of Euro 2016. That loss to Switzerland extended Iceland’s current winless run to eight matches (D2, L6), with that sequence including a defeat to League C side Norway.
This is Belgium’s first UNL match but the ‘Red Devils’ prepared for their UNL campaign in style, with a clinical 4-0 win in Scotland. That win forms part of a great run for Belgium that has seen them lose just once (in the WC semi) in 27 games (W21, D5, L1).
The two nations have met nine times – last back in 2014 – with Belgium winning on every single occasion!
Players to watch: Jón Dadi Bödvarsson (Iceland) brings solid club form into the UNL, with three goals and a ‘Man of the Match’ award from four starts for Reading this season.
Including both international and club games, Eden Hazard (Belgium) has registered six goals and three assists in his last ten matches.
Stat attack: Belgium are unbeaten in their last nine away matches (D2, L7).
Iceland have scored two or more goals in ten of their last 12 home matches, including friendlies.
Belgium have won five of their last six opening matches at qualifying tournaments and finals.
