Match Preview – Belgium vs Tunisia

After an impressive start to the 2018 FIFA World Cup where they beat Panama by 3-0, Belgium will be playing Tunisia this afternoon.

Manchester United striker, Romelu Lukaku was the star man for the Red Devils of Belgium in their opening game at the tournament. He scored a brace and will be hoping to score more goals against the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia.

The Carthage Eagles, on the other hand, are looking to bounce back after a late 2-1 defeat to England in their opening match. Having defended for much in their opening match against the Three Lions, the Tunisians will need to show more attacking intent, if they are to move beyond the group stage of the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Belgium have played Tunisia just once at the FIFA World Cup. They played a one all draw at the 2002 FIFA World Cup which was held in Korea / Japan.

A win for Belgium will take them to the round of 16 and Tunisia with a loss will be out of the tournament if England beat Panama tomorrow.

Belgium: Thibaut Courtois; Jan Vertonghen, Dedryck Boyata, Toby Alderweireld; Axel Witsel, Kevin De Bruyne, Yannick Carrasco, Thomas Meunier; Dries Mertens, Eden Hazard; Romelu Lukaku
