Belgium vs Tunisia match preview

The Reds Devils’ squad has been much talked about in the build-up to the competition with great anticipation for them to do well with players like Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne and Dries Mertens.

In past tournaments, the nation’s ‘golden generation’ have been deemed as very underwhelming, however, with their star men hitting the peak years of their career this could finally be the year Belgium go far in a major competition.

A Romelu Lukaku brace and a stunning strike from Mertens helped Belgium to kick off their 2018 World Cup campaign with a 3-0 win over Panama.

With Germany having lost to Mexico, Brazil being held with Switzerland and Argentina taking just one point from their first two games, the top sides having been dropping big points demonstrating that Belgium’s win should not be underestimated.

Tunisia are now fighting to remain in Russia having suffered defeat to England in cruel fashion, as Harry Kane scored a winning goal in the 91st-minute to snatch a point away from the Eagles.

However, manager Nabil Maâloul should take great encouragement from his side’s performance against England, with Tunisia showing great resilience for long periods.
