Belgium confirm Trossard will miss two games
Belgium are set to take on Russia later today in a Euro 2020 qualifier.
The tie is a must-win for both sides if they wish to top their group.
Roberto Martinez’s men are currently sat top of Group I, with 24 points amassed from eight games.
Russia, on the other hand, are three points adrift of Belgium, with 21 points from eight games.
So, should Belgium emerge victorious from Saturday’s clash, they will have secured top spot in Group I.
After Russia, Belgium are set to take on Cyprus on Tuesday the 19th of November.
Prior to the Russia clash, though, Belgium have confirmed via their official Twitter account that Brighton’s Leandro Trossard hasn’t traveled to Russia, and will also be out of the Cyprus game:

Brighton vs Leicester
Belgium didn’t go into too much detail over what exactly is wrong with Trossard, but if the winger is ruled out of both of their games, it doesn’t look too good for the Brighton man.
The Seagulls are now probably sick of Trossard going away on international duty.
The last time that Trossard was selected for Belgium back in September. he also picked up an injury, which kept him out of four Premier League fixtures.
The 24-year-old has featured in Brighton’s last three PL ties, but we will now have to wait and see if he can play any part vs Leicester next Saturday.
Brighton head into the tie 11th in the English top-flight, while Leicester are flying high in second place.
