The Belgium vs Czech Republic 2022 World Cup UEFA qualifying match will be broadcast live online and on TV as the Red Devils host the Lions at King Badouin Stadium this Sunday, September 5, at 11:45 a.m. Pacific.
Belgium is currently first place in Group E of the World Cup qualifiers with 10 points from four games played. The Red Devils are coming off a huge 5-2 win against Estonia, where star striker Romelu Lukaku netted a brace.
Kevin De Bruyne is still recovering from an injury as a lot of the responsibility in the midfield for offensive purposes will fall on Club Brugge captain Hans Vanaken. The offense also counts with players like Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco as this squad is filled with talent.
The Czech Republic national team is currently second place in Group E of the qualifiers with seven points, but needs to pick up more points with Wales in third place. Wales only has three points so far, but has two games in hand over the Czech Republic as the standings have the potential to change quickly.
The Lions are coming off a 1-0 win against Belarus, where Hellas Verona’s Antonin Barak scored the game-winner. Star striker Patrick Schick, who was the joint-top goalscorer in the 2020 EURO with Cristiano Ronaldo will not be available for this match as he will be serving a ban. Schick’s absence is a significant one against a top team like Belgium as the offensive production will fall on players like Antonin Barak and Tomas Soucek.
