    Belgium vs Russia

    Belgium are unbeaten against Russia (W2 D1) since the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

    This is their second encounter at the World Cup, with Belgium winning 3-2 in the group stages of the 2002 edition. Current Belgian head-coach Marc Wilmots scored the winning goal in that game.

    Romelu Lukaku scored a brace in their last encounter, a 2-0 friendly win for Belgium in Voronezh on 17 November 2010.

    Lukaku failed to register a single touch in the opposition area in his 58 minute appearance against Algeria.

    Belgium’s possession figure of 67.1% against Algeria is the best they’ve managed in a World Cup game since 1966.

    It took Marouane Fellaini just five minutes to score his first World Cup goal after coming on as a substitute versus Algeria. He didn’t score a single goal in 1431 minutes of competitive action for Manchester United in 2013-14.

    Thibaut Courtois is yet to lose a match with the Belgium national team (P18 W12 D6).

    The last eight goals that Russia have scored in World Cup finals matches have come after half-time.

    Aleksandr Kerzhakov has now joined Vladimir Beschastnykh as joint-top goalscorer for Russia with 26 goals

    Kerzhakov had been on the field for three minutes and 16 seconds when he scored Russia’s equaliser against South Korea.

    Belgium played a higher proportion of passes in the opposition half (68.4%) than any other side in the opening round of group stage games.
