Belgium are poised for a breakthrough EURO performance, as many of the country’s young prospects have moulded into world class players. One primary reason for Belgium’s imminent success is their well-oiled attack.
Romelu Lukaku scored 18 goals for Everton last season. He will start at forward and have plenty of scoring opportunities due to his attacking midfield’s collective playmaking ability.
Kevin De Bruyne is also fresh off a superb Premier League season. The Belgian midfielder scored seven goals, distributed nine assists and seemingly created constant scoring chances. Alongside De Bruyne in the midfield is Eden Hazard, who despite having an off season with Chelsea, turned it on in the waning games. Hazard scored four goals in Chelsea’s final five matches.
Together, he and De Bruyne’s pace and passing will vault Lukaku to plenty of scoring opportunities. Marouane Fellaini and Radja Nainggolan, meanwhile, are also high quality options in the midfield.
In the squad’s 10 qualifying matches, Belgium averaged 2.4 goals. And aside from Italy, Belgium’s pairing in the group stages favours their relentless attack. Northern Ireland will struggle defensively and Sweden’s defence has long been their weak link.
Fully expect Belgium to score multiple goals on multiple occasions.
