Belgium will be hoping to continue their flawless start to Euro 2020 qualifying on Tuesday evening as they take on Scotland.

The two teams come together at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels as each looks to take a huge step towards qualification. It is the Red Devils that currently sit top of the table after three games having enjoyed a flawless start with three wins. Meanwhile, Scotland sit in third after two wins and a solitary defeat against Kazakhstan. Consequently, Belgium are the favourites to win this match and are available to be backed at a price of 1/6 with Betfred. Scotland are at an eye-watering 16/1 to earn maximum points, with a draw at 6/1.

One aspect that will give the hosts huge confidence is their fantastic all-time record against Scotland. In 19 games between the two, Belgium have won 11 times and only lost on four occasions. As a matter of fact, the Red Devils have won the last four consecutive meetings between the two teams, keeping clean sheets in all of them. They are available at a price of 3/4 with Coral to win to nil yet again. Elsewhere, Steve Clarke’s men sit at another huge price of 33/1 to do the same. If they manage to do that, it would be their first win against Belgium without conceding a goal since a 2-0 at Hampden Park way back in 1987.

Scotland will be keen to avoid a defeat with that exact scoreline too. On the last three occasions that the sides have met competitively, Belgium have won 2-0. That scoreline to be repeated this time sits at odds of 9/2 with William Hill.

Supporters of the Premier League will be familiar with plenty of names throughout both squads. The likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku are both likely to start. Eden Hazard, who is set to move from Chelsea to Real Madrid, will once again captain the squad and is at 11/4 with Betfair to become the out-right second highest goalscorer in his country’s history with the opening goal of the game. 

Regarding Clarke’s men, Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson is once again set to captain the Scotland side. He gave Scotland the lead in Scotland’s win against Cyprus last time out and can be backed to open the scoring once again at an unbelievable price of 125/1. Meanwhile, uncapped trio Greg Taylor, Stuart Findlay and Liam Kelly will all be looking to make their international debuts.
