Match Preview

Belgium travel to the Stadio Olimpico di Serravalle to take on minnows San Marino in their fifth Euros qualifying fixture.

Roberto Martinez's side, who are not only widely tipped to top Group I but also challenge for the coveted trophy in 2020, have netted 11 and conceded just once in their campaign thus far.

On the contrary, San Marino are struggling to get out of their own half, as they are yet to register a goal in the qualifying round. In the same period, they have shipped a humiliating 20 goals in just four games.

Against a Belgium side that thumped them by 8-0 the last time these two met back in 2005, it might just be a matter of time until Franco Varrella's team are well and truly out of the game.

Here's all you need to know ahead of the fixture.

Key Player to Watch Out For

Romelu Lukaku will be licking his lips ahead of the first whistle
Romelu Lukaku will be licking his lips ahead of the first whistle

Here's a player who has finally dusted himself off his recent past and taken the Serie A by storm with Inter Milan, under Antonio Conte. As seen over the years, Romelu Lukaku is a player who thrives on confidence and a scoring run.

What better opportunity to bag a few more against a team that is struggling to cope with the pace and quality of the Euros qualifiers?

Lukaku is sure to out-muscle the opposition centre-halves, bring his wingers into play and get on the end of many crosses and through passes. Not to mention, he can spring away and use his physicality to charge forward as well.

To add to San Marino's own defensive woes, let's note that Lukaku has found the back of the net eight times in his last six appearances for Belgium.
