Austria vs Belgium Lineups and Last Match

Austria

Austria made the tricky trip to Sweden last time out and came away with all 3pts to show for their efforts. Following a goalless first-half, Gregoritsch fired Austria in front and a few minutes later, Arnautovic made it 2-0. The veteran Austrian forward scored his second goal of the game via a 69th-minute penalty to put the visitors three goals up and while Sweden did manage to pull a goal back late on, the result had already been decided. David Alaba is the big name missing from the latest Austria squad, while Arnautović also misses the game through injury.

Predicted Lineup – Schlager (GK), Danso, Wöber, Lienhart, Daniliuc, Sabitzer, Laimer, Schlager, Seiwald, Baumgartner & Gregoritsch

Belgium

Belgium made light work of Estonia in their last qualifying match, running out 5-0 winners in Bruxelles. Veteran defener Vertonghen opened the scoring after just 4-minutes and Trossard added a second goal in the 18th minute. Romelu Lukaku added to his excellent international record with two second-half goals and De Keteaere made it 5-0 late on. Courtois, Meunier, De Bruyne, Trossard and Thorgan Hazard have all missed out on the latest Belgium squad for one reason or another.

Predicted Lineup – Casteels (GK), Vertonghen, Castagne, Faes, Theate, Carrasco, Mangala, Onana, Lukaku, De Ketelaere & Doku

Player to Watch: Romelu Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku and Michael Gregoritsch both scored when these two countries locked horns in Belgium and we're backing the Roma striker to impress once again when the two nations meet on Friday.

Lukaku, now playing his club football for Roma, has scored 77 goals in 110 caps for Belgium has started the new season in fantastic form for his club, netting seven times in eight appearances in all competitions.

It's not just at club level that Lukaku has impressed in 2023, the striker has also scored 9 international goals in six games for Belgium this year, so you cna see why we're backing him as our player to watch on Friday.
