Belgium and Morocco will face in an entertaining Group F fixture at the Al Thumama Stadium. The Red Devils edged out a victory against a young Canadian team thanks to Michy Bashtuayi’s goal. While Morocco had to settle for a 0-0 draw against last World Cup finalists Croatia.
The Belgian Red Devils could see the return of Romelu Lukaku in this fixture.
Noussair Mazraoui’s injury has been deemed to be not serious and could see his return in this fixture.
The Belgian scrapped through for a win against Canada in their opening game for the World Cup. The Red Devils conceded a penalty in the first half which was saved by Thibaut Courtois. Then Michy Batshuayi scored and gave Belgium the victory. The finishing continues to be a major problem and a possible return of Romelu Lukaku could help in that department.
Whereas Morocco settled for a 0-0 draw against Croatia to kick off their campaign in Qatar. Their front three struggled throughout the game and failed to capitalise on the scoring opportunities. The defence held its own and shut the experienced Croatian attack. The Moroccans would want a winning result to stay alive in the World Cup.
