Wales failed to qualify for the previous World Cup in Russia but have high hopes of advancing to the Qatar tournament next year.

They famously beat Belgium at Euro 2016 and this will arguably be their toughest challenge of their entire qualification campaign.

Belgium haven’t beaten Wales since a World Cup qualifier back in 2012 but come into this fixture having won each of their last four outings.

That includes a 2-0 victory over England in the UEFA Nations League when Roberto Martinez’s troops last got together in November.

Belgium v Wales team news

Belgium: Eden Hazard misses this clash through injury but Romelu Lukaku is available despite a coronavirus outbreak at his club side Inter Milan. He has returned two negative COVID-19 tests.

Axel Witsel is out of the squad with a long-term injury but Martinez has plenty of options elsewhere in his attacking ranks.

Wales: Aaron Ramsey is injured but there is hope goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey will have recovered in time to feature.

Gareth Bale will almost certainly start, with Manchester United’s Daniel James providing further threat from the opposite wing.

Our prediction: Belgium v Wales

Wales may have a good recent record against Belgium but this side is a different beast under Martinez and are all set to claim victory here.

The likes of Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne and Dries Mertens can all turn a game in an instant, and Wales will have to muck in to keep this game tight.

Yes, the visitors will occasionally threaten in Leuven but don’t be surprised if Belgium run away with the win.

Our prediction: Belgium 3-1 Wales (11/1 at bet365)
