Belgium's preparation for Euro 2024 seems to be going as planned following their 2-0 win over Montenegro in midweek.

It won't come as any surprise that Belgium have never lost any of their previous 13 matches against Luxembourg but Saturday's guests have managed to secure three draws over the years.

These two nations last locked horns in 2014 and on that day Belgium ran out resounding 5-1 winners which included a hat trick for Romelu Lukaku.

Belgium preview: Good enough to challenge in Germany

Belgium will be without the services of Thibaut Courtois and Michy Batshuayi for Euro 2024 but still boasts a squad capable of going all the way in Germany.

With the experience of Jan Vertonghen, Thomas Meunier and Timothy Castagne in defence, the talent of Kevin De Bruyne, Youri Tielemans, Amadou Onana, Jérémy Doku and Yannick Carrasco in midfield, coupled with the goals of Romelu Lukaku, Belgium should be getting to the latter stages this summer and possibly ending their trophy drought altogether.

Predicted lineup: Sels (GK), Castagne, Witsel, De Cuyper, Debast, Trossard, Doku, Vermeeren, Lukébakio, Openda & Mangala

Luxembourg preview: An improving nation

Luxembourg were well beaten in France on Wednesday night but given the gap in quality between the two sides, a 3-0 defeat at the former World and European champions doesn't reflect that badly.

Luc Holtz's side are without some of the regular and key players right now including the likes of Lars Gerson, Marvin Martins, Mica Pinto, Florian Bohnert,  Olivier Thill, Leandro Barreiro and Vincent Thill all of whom have 30+ caps for their country, so it's no surprise to see Luxembourg getting easily beaten by one of biggest nations in world football.

Predicted lineup: Moris (GK), Chanot, Jans, Mahmutović, Carlson, Džogović, Philipps, Martins, Sinani, Olesen & Rodrigues

Player to watch – Leandro Trossard

Leandro Trossard could be one of Belgium's most important players at Euro 2024 as he heads into the summer tournament on the back of an excellent finish to the Premier League season with Arsenal.

The 29-year-old former Brighton star scored 17 goals in 46 appearances across all competitions for the Gunners this season, making himself a key player for Mikel Arteta's side in the second half of the campaign.

Tipped to shine at Euro 2024

We're backing Trossard to shine for Belgium this weekend and this summer in Germany and wouldn't be surprised to see him score against Luxembourg just as he did against Montenegro in midweek.
