Both Belgium and Romania suffered defeats in their opening matches of Euro 2024, making this Group E showdown crucial for their chances of qualifying. Roberto Martinez's Belgium fell short against a well-organized Denmark side, losing 1-0. Despite creating opportunities, their attack lacked the cutting edge. On the other hand, Romania faced a resounding 3-0 defeat against a superior Netherlands team. While they showed moments of resilience, their overall performance fell short. Both teams will be eager to bounce back and avoid an early exit from the competition. 

Belgium Preview

Belgium is expected to stick with their core group of players. The world-class trio of Kevin De Bruyne, Youri Tielemans, and Axel Witsel will likely dominate the midfield. Romelu Lukaku is set to return to the starting lineup after sitting out the first match due to a minor injury. His presence will greatly enhance their attacking prowess.

There might be some changes in the backline, with Wout Faes possibly replacing Jason Denayer. Despite the defeat on the opening day, Belgium possesses a squad packed with experience and talent. They aim to control possession and create scoring opportunities through De Bruyne's exceptional vision and creativity.

Belgium Probable Starting XI: Courtois; Faes, Vertonghen, Alderweireld; Castagne; Tielemans, Witsel, De Bruyne; Carrasco, Lukaku, Trossard

Romania Preview

Romania's primary focus will be shoring up their defence after conceding three goals against the Netherlands. Manager Edward Iordănescu is likely to adopt a more cautious approach. The experienced Nicolae Stanciu might be brought in to provide composure and leadership in midfield. On the attacking front, the lively flank play of Dennis Man could pose a threat to Belgium's potentially vulnerable defence. Debutant forward Andrei Ciobanu might get a chance to impress alongside the more established Florinel Coman. Romania will need to deliver a near-flawless performance to snatch points from this match.

Romania Probable Starting XI: Nita; Bancu, Chiriches, Nedelcearu; Ratiu; Stanciu, Marin, Morutan; Man, Coman, Ciobanu


There's a lot of tension surrounding Belgium's upcoming clash with Romania in Euro 2024. Both teams are desperate for a win after their disappointing opening-round defeats. Belgium got a wake-up call with a 1-0 loss to Denmark, but they have some serious talent in their midfield with De Bruyne, Tielemans, and Witsel. And with the return of Romelu Lukaku, their attacking options are looking stronger. 

On the other hand, Romania had a tough time against the Netherlands, conceding three goals. They need to tighten up their defence. They'll be hoping to exploit any weaknesses in Belgium's backline, especially with the pace of winger Dennis Man and the potential debut of forward Andrei Ciobanu. 

While we shouldn't underestimate Romania's determination, Belgium's firepower, led by the genius of De Bruyne, is expected to make the difference. We're predicting a dominant performance from Belgium, with a 2-0 victory over Romania. With their experience and attacking prowess, they should come out on top in this crucial Group E fixture.
