  1. How the final EURO 2020 draw looks now (of course November's results might cause a few changes):Group AItalyPoland/Turkey/Croatia/FranceCzech Rep./Portugal/Switzerland/Austria/SlovakiaFinland/SwedenGroup B Belgium Denmark Russia Finland/SwedenGroup CNetherlandsPoland/Turkey/Croatia/FranceCzech Rep./Portugal/Switzerland/Austria/SlovakiaLeague A or League D play-off winnerGroup DEnglandPoland/Turkey/Croatia/FranceCzech Rep./Portugal/Switzerland/Austria/SlovakiaLeague C play-off winnerGroup ESpainPoland/Turkey/Croatia/FranceCzech Rep./Portugal/Switzerland/Austria/SlovakiaLeague B play-off winnerGroup FUkraineGermanyCzech Rep./Portugal/Switzerland/Austria/SlovakiaLeague A or League D play-off winner Belgium would automatically go to group B as top seeds. Russia and Denmark are both pot 2 teams but they have been paired and must go into this group. Sweden could be the pot 4 team. Probably the strongest team you can get from that pot, especially in this group as they'll be playing close to home. Both Russia and Denmark play their games against Belgium at home and a draw will decide if Belgium plays two group games in Russia or Denmark. Better to win this group because the runners-up have to travel excessively to go on a deep run (quarters in Baku with not much rest before the semis in London). I'd rather avoid playing Russia again at the EUROs. Not unlikely Russia would have to become group winners in the qualis for that to be the case. Belgium being drawn into another group, even one that contains one of the top favourites, has the added benefit you wouldn't have to face that team again unless you both reach the final for example. My desired group would be Belgium + two of France, Holland, Spain, Germany, England, Portugal, Croatia, ... (not Italy because it's the worst group to be drawn into) + the League D play-off winner. With a League D team in the group failing to advance to the KO stage should be impossible. Great games, already in the group stage, and better chances at a deep run.

  3. You want to play Russia again at the EUROs? Taking first in the qualis increases the chances of that happening/as things stand a draw might not even be needed and we'd automatically be added to Russia's group. Before the previous matchday Belgium (as group winners) would have to be drawn into group B (with Russia +/- Denmark) or group C (with Holland +/- Romania). After that matchday only group B would be open for Belgium unless things change in the final three matchdays. Group B is a decent one as far as travel distance, rest days, path through the KO rounds, etc. is concerned. Playing Russia again and Denmark, both in front of their home crowd is a drawback though. Wouldn't mind landing in Spain's group myself. I'd rather play them than Russia and there are even more advantages to this group. Who knows we might get lucky and be joined in our group by the League D play-off winner. In November we'll see which group(s) are still open to us. Might even be interesting to let Russia take first in the qualis but then again it's best to avoid Italy's group (= worst group regarding travel distance, KO stage path, etc.). Not expecting Martinez to make drastic changes to his squad and at the end of the season we'll see who's in form (and fully fit).
  4. I'd love a flawless record in the qualis but most importantly Belgium have qualified for the EUROs. Like the Russia 2018 qualis Belgium is again the first and currently only side to reach the final event. Loooong trip to Nur-Sultan now (used to be called Astana). With qualification already secured focus could very well be lost, as usual. Crappy plastic pitch as well. Kazakhstan can't qualify directly any longer but at home they'll try to get a result though. @thorgan lesar a pity about not scoring that 10th goal but hey-ho they once more equalled the record. Plus Lukaku became the first player to surpass the 50-goal mark and we witnessed Verschaeren's first for Belgium.
  5. Didn't watch. Good to hear they still do well at home in the CL. Now improve your away record, please smurfs.
  6. Can't complain. Brugge a bit unlucky not to get the win. Hopefully they keep Gala behind them. Also, nice to see Vanheusden is returning from injury. Had his fair share of injury woes already (enough = enough).
  7. Haaland's scorching form generated a few reports. Yet another hattrick. If you like goals... watch Genk. Their away record in the CL is abysmal (conceded 14 last time but TBF it's been a while). Hopefully Genk don't go pointless (3rd and dropping down to the EL is a big ask).
  8. A shame Yari's shot didn't go in. Always nice to score on your debut. Next game, at home against San Marino, Belgium will most likely be the first team to qualify for the EUROs. Top seed status is still at stake in the remaining games. Yet with 16/24 teams advancing to the KO rounds at the final event seeding isn't that important (but adding to our FIFA ranking could one day be). Martinez delivered on qualification and can already prepare for the EUROs (or experiment).
  9. The EL draw wasn't kind to Belgian teams: Arsenal, Eintracht Frankfurt and Vitor√≠a in Standard's group. Another very tough one and I doubt Standard advance. Wolfsburg, Saint-√Čtienne and Oleksandriya in Gent's group. Shouldn't finish lower than 3rd and with an improved away record Gent do have it in them to fight for the top 2 spots.
  10. Antwerp shot themselves in the foot. For failing to keep a cool head the blame is on them. Holland is moving up again in the rankings. Could have denied them points while adding to our total, in the group stage as well.
  11. Hopefully tomorrow we'll get a good draw for both Brugge and Genk. Would love to have 5 teams in Europe again. Gent should finish the job in Croatia and Antwerp returning to Europe would be great.
