Scotland haven’t beaten Belgium since 1987 and that streak looks set to continue as the side from the lowlands are in a rich vein of form.
The Scots can kiss goodbye to their hopes of making the tournament in Brazil next year and now their only objective will be to avoid finishing the group at the bottom of the pile.
However, last time out against England they showed that they can still cause opposition defences all manner of trouble and will be hoping to do so again, though they will have to do it without Kenny Miller, who retired at the end of last month.
James Morrison will also be missing, but other than that Scotland have no new injury concerns to contend with.
When the two sides met in the reverse fixture late last year, second-half goals from Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke and Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany sealed the victory for the Belgians.
Kompany will be missing this time around as he continues his recovery from injury, but Manchester United new boy Marouane Fellaini has been included and should be ready to start.
