The action in the UEFA Nations League is back with the second leg of the tournament this month. With only 2 months remaining for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, it’s an opportunity for teams to analyze their strengths and weaknesses and find the right team combination. Belgium will start their second leg by hosting Wales at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels on Thursday, Matchday 5. The Belgians faced only 1 defeat in the first 4 games and they will aim to target the top spot in their group by winning the next two games against Wales and Netherlands.

It will be a mammoth task for Wales to avoid another defeat when they meet the Belgians in the upcoming away game. Rob Page’s men are yet to register their first win of the tournament. Wales will aim for a strong preparation ahead of their first FIFA World Cup in 64 years.
