The UEFA Nations League is back in action with another round of fixtures this weekend as Belgium lock horns with Wales on Saturday. Both teams have impressive players in their ranks and have a point to prove in this fixture.
Wales are rooted to the bottom of their group at the moment and have failed to meet expectations in the competition. The Welsh side suffered a 2-1 defeat against the Netherlands this week and will need to bounce back in this match.
Belgium, on the other hand, are in second place in Group 4 and have stepped up after a poor start to their campaign. The Red Devils thrashed Poland by a 6-1 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this weekend.
Wales vs Belgium Head-to-Head
Belgium have a slight edge over Wales and have won six of the 15 matches played between the two sides. Wales have managed five victories against Belgium and will want to level the scales on Saturday.
The previous meeting between the two sides took place last year and ended in a 1-1 draw. Wales presented a robust front on the day and will look to take it up a notch this weekend.
