Domenico Tedesco’s men put in an average performance last time out and could not find a way back against Slovakia despite having numerous chances to do so. As a result, Belgium’s Euro 2024 dreams hang by a thread and if they don’t defeat Romania, they may be on the verge of going home.

Romania currently sit top of Group E after a dream start to their campaign, hammering Ukraine 3-0 with one of the best performances of the tournament so far. The Romanians arrive into their clash with Belgium knowing that it is somewhat of a free hit as a point would put them on the verge of qualifying for the Round of 16.

The two nations haven’t played each other since 2012 when Romania beat Belgium 2-1 in a friendly.

Their head-to-head is currently even at 5-2-5, with both teams hoping to give their country the edge in this over the weekend.
