    None of the big teams and not a chance that we'll be joined by League D's play-off winner. FML.
    EURO 2020 Group B:
    Belgium
    Russia
    Denmark
    Finland
    UEFA separate Russia and Kosovo in bid to keep the peace => meaning the League D play-off winner cannot be drawn into Belgium's group. The other play-off paths will most likely contain hosts linked to other groups. Currently Finland and Hungary are in pot 4 but as Hungary are hosting as well Belgium's group for EURO 2020 is already complete (*ATM Czech Rep., Wales or Slovakia can still end up in pot 4 instead of Hungary).
    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. The Finnish will play close to home at either venue and they're a fairytale in the making, a new Iceland.
    Facing Russia again (it will probably be a cagey affair unless the Russians need a win to advance), Denmark are quite decent, very much underrated (yet against this red-hot Belgium...) and Finland shamelessly parking the bus ... not what I wished for, not at all. Luckily Belgium have become very adept at unlocking ultra-defensive teams.

    How the final EURO 2020 draw looks now (of course November's results might cause a few changes):

    Group A
    Italy
    Poland/Turkey/Croatia/France
    Czech Rep./Portugal/Switzerland/Austria/Slovakia
    Finland/Sweden

    Group B
    Belgium
    Denmark
    Russia
    Finland/Sweden

    Group C
    Netherlands
    Poland/Turkey/Croatia/France
    Czech Rep./Portugal/Switzerland/Austria/Slovakia
    League A or League D play-off winner

    Group D
    England
    Poland/Turkey/Croatia/France
    Czech Rep./Portugal/Switzerland/Austria/Slovakia
    League C play-off winner

    Group E
    Spain
    Poland/Turkey/Croatia/France
    Czech Rep./Portugal/Switzerland/Austria/Slovakia
    League B play-off winner

    Group F
    Ukraine
    Germany
    Czech Rep./Portugal/Switzerland/Austria/Slovakia
    League 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.

    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.

    Finally! The youth will be preferred from this season. RSC Anderlecht must be the team that has the following Red Devils. RSCA is currently not doing very well, but there is a bright future. We start with the youngsters who are in the A-team. We start from young to old.

    The 17-year-olds Marco Kana, Killian Sardella, Jérémy Doku and Anouar Ait El Hadji are the youngest in this very young squad. Sardella and Kana both make a big impression. Sardella also plays in an unusual position, namely as a right defender. Kana already made a big impression on an unusual position for him. El Hadji needs a little more time and Doku is a talented winger, but needs to be more productive.

    The 18-year-olds Thierry Lutonda and Yari Verschaeren are talented. Lutonda is currently dealing with a difficult injury. It's still waiting how he will come back on the field, but RSC Anderlecht didn't get a left back because they think Lutonda is ready for the big job. Verschaeren is the most famous name. He is standing for the year of his confirmation.

    The 19-year-old Hotman El Kababri and Albert Sambi Lokonga are also talented, but one has slightly less pure qualities (El Kababri) and the other just returns from an injury of about 1 year (Sambi Lokonga). It's also waiting how he will come back on the field.

    The 20-year-olds Francis Amuzu and Sieben Dewaele are the 'oldest' youngsters in the squad. Amuzu already has 51 matches behind his name. He has talent and speed, but has not enough productivity. In the system of Vincent Kompany and Simon Davies, productivity is expected from the wingers. It remains to be seen how he will continue this year. Is he going to improve enormously in the coming months or will he be a back-up for Chadli and Doku? Dewaele reminds me a bit of the style (!) of Lucas Biglia, but mainly has to work on his intensity. These 2 are slightly less talented, but do have the mentality to get there. Curious as to what Dewaele is capable of.

    Killian Sardella, Marco Kana, Jérémy Doku, Yari Verschaeren and Albert Sambi Lokonga are the talents that you will have to keep an eye on.

    Same as usual: attractive opponents from the top two pots. The opponent from the other pot is more important as you'd like to avoid coming bottom/a fair chance at dropping down to the EL (in case you don't advance from the CL groups).

    Was a bit surprised when I saw it. There were rumours of a transfer to Brugge or Anderlecht earlier, besides the ones linking him to clubs abroad, but didn't think anything would come of it. I read Brugge paid 7M and even with Migs taking a big wage cut he'll weigh on Brugge's wage bill. OTOH Migs is dying to get out there and prove himself again.
    Sounds like he was indeed a good servant to the club and a model pro. Klopp: "If you were to ask me to write a list of the most standout pros I’ve worked with in the game - in a career of well over 30 years - Mignolet would be competing for the number 1 spot. The first in, the last out every day at Melwood."
