MOSCOW (RUSSIA) – Belgium continues its record-breaking qualifying run to Euro 2020 but loses Mertens due to injury. The Napoli football player was replaced at the 52 ′ Russia-Belgium. Mertens left the field after suffering a hard intervention in the opponent's penalty area. After suffering the blow, Mertens fell badly on the pitch and got injured.

Belgium won the same number of matches as Italy but have a better goal difference, so is the strongest team in these Euro 2020 qualifiers. Against Russia, Belgium won 4 to 1 thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku, Thorgan Harzard and Eden Hazard (double).
