    Belgium vs Algeria

    Belgium have won one of their last nine World Cup games (3-2 v Russia on 14 June 2002), drawing five and losing three. They have kept one clean sheet in these nine games: v Netherlands in 1998 (0-0).

    Belgium are unbeaten in their last two World Cup group stages, in 1998 and 2002 (W1 D5).

    Algeria have failed to score in their last five World Cup games, attempting 71 unsuccessful shots since their last goal on 3 June 1986 against Northern Ireland (1-1, Djamel Zidane with the goal).

    Belgium are unbeaten in two previous internationals against Algeria, winning one and drawing one (both friendlies).

    Thibaut Courtois saved 87.1% of shots faced in the European qualifiers, the best ratio among goalkeepers who featured more than five times.

    Eight of Belgium's last 14 goals at the World Cup have come from set-pieces (5 from a corner kick, 2 from a direct free-kick, 1 from an indirect free-kick).

    Only Spain (3) conceded fewer goals than Belgium (4) in the 2014 European World Cup qualifiers.

    The Red Devils are unbeaten in two previous World Cup games against sides from Africa, winning one and drawing one.
