The UEFA Euro 2020 is back with another round of matches this weekend as Belgium lock horns with Russia at the Krestovsky Stadium on Saturday. Both teams have a point to prove in Group B and will want to kick off their campaigns with a victory in this fixture.
Russia are one of the many dark horses at Euro 2020 and are perfectly capable of pulling off an upset this weekend. The Russians did have their problems in a 1-0 victory against Bulgaria last week and will need to take it up a notch in this match.
Belgium, on the other hand, have one of the best squads in the tournament and are the best team in Group B. Roberto Martinez's side managed an impressive victory against Croatia last week and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
