San Marino vs Belgium
Date: Friday, 6 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Serravalle).
It almost seems cruelty to pit these two against each other. Quite expectedly both have taken their rightful spots at the top and bottom of the table, and have neat streaks to go along with it too. The World Cup semifinalists have a 100% winning record, while their counterparts have an exact opposite 100% losing record.
The state of San Marino in the midst of these stalwarts is kind of pitiful. Not only did they lose every single one of their ties, but they are yet to register a single goal on opposite nets. Conceding 20 goals in their run so far, the team sports a goal difference of -20.
Meanwhile, the Belgians are looking strong to end up the topper of the group, and have scored a total of eleven goals in return for just one. As such, the only thing to lean on for the minnows would be the home advantage, and even that might be too much of a ‘Hail Mary’ considering the stature of the incoming opponents.

- San Marino has conceded two or more goals in every tie in the last 23 years.
San Marino vs Belgium Prediction
It’s a completely lopsided game. Belgium almost had a shot at lifting the World Cup, if not for their stumbling in front of France, whereas San Marino would break into a nation-wide cheer if their squad is able to register a draw in any of their ties.
Obviously, the guests are at the top of the table with a 100% winning record, and quite opposite is the case of their opposite number. Moreover, Hazard and co have a 100% winning record against this opponent and have scored two or more goals in every encounter. In fact, the combined scorecard for the last six clashes is 33-3 in favor of the Belgians, and they are in line for another huge win this Friday.
The squad is already in pole position to top the group, but just to completely neutralize the threat of Russia from just below, the team will have to go crazy and register a mammoth scorecard.
