Nations League kick off time Belgium v ​​Wales, TV channel, news

Games against Belgium have brought Wales some memorable nights over the past decade, but the main focus of Thursday’s encounter in Brussels will be the build-up to this winter’s World Cup.

Robert Page’s side booked their ticket to Qatar with a 1-0 win over Ukraine in June and tonight’s Nations League Group A4 match is their penultimate game before the tournament begins .

With a host of regulars, such as Joe Allen, Aaron Ramsey and Harry Wilson, missing due to injury and Gareth Bale’s involvement unclear after joining the squad on Tuesday, it looks like there are opportunities for some fringe players to prove a one point lead in the World Cup.

But Thursday’s game will be a real test given the quality of the Belgian squad and the fact that Roberto Martinez’s players will be looking to cement their place in his plans for Qatar 2022.

Wales picked up an impressive point in the reverse fixture at Cardiff, but four games into the 2022/23 Nations League campaign it’s their only point and they face relegation to League B if they are unable to produce results next week.

It adds an interesting dimension to Thursday’s game, but make no mistake, both teams will be playing with one eye on the World Cup.

Our prediction: Belgium vs Wales

There are only two games left before the start of the World Cup and none of the coaches will want to waste this opportunity as tomorrow night’s game gives them the chance to find out a little more about some of the players who are looking for places and to make sure things go well. .

Given his importance to the team and all the talk of his management ahead of the tournament, it would be a surprise to see Bale start, but his absence is one of many absences that should provide opportunities elsewhere.

Wales needed a late equalizer from Brennan Johnson to earn a draw in the reverse fixture, but with both sides looking to switch gears ahead of Qatar 2022 and with less experience in the center of the park, Thursday’s game could be that close.

Our prediction: Belgium 3-1 Wales (10/1 at bet365)
