Preview:
Belgium and Spain face at Stade Roi Baudouin, in a friendly match. This is the 3rd friendly match of the year for Belgium, after friendly matches against Italy and France. As for Spain, this is the 4th friendly match of the year, after previous friendly matches against England, Costa Rica and Netherlands. There is no record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last time they met, on 05‑09‑2009, the match ended with the final score: Spain (5‑0) Belgium.

Analysis of Belgium

The home team plays its 3rd friendly match of the year. In the previous friendly matches they registered the following final scores: Belgium (3‑1) Italy and France (3‑4) Belgium. In the last 10 home matches Belgium has won 9 and tied 1. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 10 of the last 15 matches have ended with Over 2,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 5 of their 15 matches, but have been able to turn the score around in 2. 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.

Analysis of Spain

The away team plays its 4th friendly match of the year. In the previous friendly matches they registered the following final scores: Spain (2‑0) England, Spain (2‑1) Costa Rica and Netherlands (2‑0) Spain. In the last 10 away matches Spain has won 6 and lost 4. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 5 of the last 10 matches have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 7 out of 10 have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

The national squad led by Vicente del Bosque comes to this match with an "unexpected" victory against the England, 2-0: Mario Gaspar score one of the goals of the year. However, it should be recalled that the Spanish coach lost one of its pearls, the Bayern Munich midfield Thiago Alcantara. It's expected to Cazorla assume the midfield position.
 

Possible lineup: Casillas, Piqué, Bartra, Jordi Alba, Mario Gaspar, Fàbregas, Santi Cazorla, Busquets, Iniesta, Paco Alcácer, Diego Costa.
