Estonia vs Belgium: Head to head statistics



Estonia vs Belgium match preview

After a minor setback on Saturday night, will Belgium get back to winning ways in Tallinn?

At the weekend, the Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw by a stubborn Austrian outfit at Stade Roi Baudouin.

Orel Mangala deflected home an unfortunate own goal in the first half, before Romelu Lukaku fired home his customary international goal on the hour mark.

Before this, Domenico Tedesco boasted a 100% record since taking over earlier this year, with his team demolishing Sweden on matchday one before a friendly victory in Germany.

In this group, Belgium’s next three fixtures are all against minnows Estonia or Azerbaijan, before facing Austria in Vienna and then Sweden in Brussels in October.

So, with tougher fixtures to come, the Red Devils will need to win this one, something they’ll be confident of achieving.

Then, on Saturday, Sappinen broke the deadlock on the road again, this time doing so in a 1-1 draw with Azerbaijan at Dalğa Arena in Bakı.

The Blueshirts did win all four UEFA Nations League D fixtures in 2022 but, in terms of qualifiers, it’s just one win in 19 outings for Thomas Häberli’s team.

During the most-recent World Cup qualification cycle, Belgium beat Estonia 5-2 and 3-1, with the away side likely to score plenty of goals again as they return to A. Le Coq Arena.

Kevin De Bruyne, Thomas Meunier, Amadou Onana, Roméo Lavia and Leandro Trossard are all not in this squad.

Striker Romelu Lukaku is here though, having scored his 73rd international goal at the weekend, four of which have come against Estonia, only netting more frequently against Russia and Iceland.

Aster Vranckx, Ameen Al-Dakhil and Mike Trésor Ndayishimiye all came off the bench against Austria for their international debuts, signalling the start of a new era.
