Match Overview

Wales have been sweating on the fitness of Captain Ashley Williams since he injured his shoulder late in the Northern Ireland match but he has been cleared to play against Belgium.

Much has been written about Wales Manager Chris Coleman using the same 3-5-2 formation as the Italians in their opening round win against Belgium.

The Welsh will attempt to frustrate the Belgium midfield and press hard with their defence to isolate Gareth Bale forward so he can continue to score goals for his country.

Belgium Manager Marc Wilmots will again have plenty of firepower at his disposal. He now has Eden Hazard getting on the score board to join Lukaku, Witsel and Alderweireld. Not to mention some of their star players who have scored in the tournament. Belgium have scored a total of eight goals.

Defensively Belgium have been tight, conceding only two goals in Euro 2016 which were in their first match against Italy when they were clearly affected by nerves.

Wales have also been among the goals scoring seven and conceding three for the Tournament.

Gareth Bale has scored three goals but has also received great support from Aaron Ramsey, Hal Robson-Kanu and Neil Taylor who have all scored one goal.

For Wales to win they are going to have to work a lot harder than their more fancied rivals and it is very hard seeing them beating Belgium.

Belgium to win 2-1.

Player Watch

Eden Hazard finally got on the score sheets last match and is distributing the ball well with over 207 passes at 87%.  Now he has found the net expect another goal from the Chelsea striker.
