Belgium host Belarus in a 2022 World Cup qualifier at the King Power Stadium in Leuven on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils are looking to bounce back from a disappointing 1-1 draw against the Czech Republic on Saturday.

Lukas Provod put the Czechs ahead in that game in Prague with a goal just after the start of the second half. However, Romelu Lukaku equalized 10 minutes later to ensure that Belgium earned a point.

Roberto Martinez's side currently have the same number of points as the Czechs after two games in the group.

Belgium beat Wales 3-1 in Leuven last week and will look to ensure no slip-ups against a Belarus side that they are expected to beat with ease.

Belarus have played just one game so far and got off to a winning start in their World Cup qualification campaign. They beat Estonia 4-2 in Minsk on Saturday, with Vitali Lisakovich scoring a brace in that game.

But Tuesday night will pose a completely different challenge when they face one of the world's best teams.
