Analysis of Belgium

This is the 3rd friendly match of the year for the home team, after having registered the following final scores in the previous friendlies: Belgium (3‑1) Italy and France (3‑4) Belgium. Belgium has won 9 and tied 1 of the last 10 home matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches.

In the last 15 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 4 of their 11 goals between minutes (0'‑15').

After a big victory against the national Italian squad, 3-1, the national Belgium team wants to continue to demonstrate that it's one of the national teams with more potential for Euro 2016. Thus, it's expected that in this match against Spain, which holds the competition, the coach Marc Wilmots put on the field his best eleven: it's important to note that up front may come Batshuayi instead of Lukaku.
 

Possible lineup: S. Mignolet, T. Alderweireld, N. Lombaerts, J. Vertonghen, L. Cavanda, E. Hazard, R. Nainggolan, A. Witsel, Y. Carrasco, K. De Bruyne, M. Batshuayi.
