Belgium and Greece will ramp up their preparations for the upcoming European Championships by battling out in a friendly in the lead up to the tournament. The game will be played at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels, Belgium and will kick off at 12:30 AM IST on Friday, June 4. Here's a look at how to watch Belgium vs Greece live broadcast, Belgium vs Greece live stream details and our Belgium vs Greece prediction for the same.
Much has been made of Belgium's golden generation but the Red Devils have yet to make their mark at major international tournaments and will hope to do so at the Euro 2020. The No.1 ranked side in the world, Belgium would hope to build on third place at the World Cup in Russia three years ago. The European championships present them with the opportunity to stamp their authority on the international stage and build for World Cup in Qatar next year. Roberto Martinez's side are expected to finish at the top of the pile in Group B with Denmark, Finland and Russia beyond which things could turn tricky for Romelu Lukaku and Co.
Greece were the unlikely winners at the Euro 2004, but since then they have failed to match up to their lofty standards, even failing to qualify for the 2016 Euros and 2018 World Cup. A return to the European Championships provides them with the opportunity to muster some lost pride and they come into the tournament on the back of some good form, navigated their 2020-21 Nations League campaign undefeated. A similar result on Thursday could serve as the catalyst for the team heading into a major tournament, and head coach John van 't Schip will hope for the same.
Belgium and Greece share an even head-to-head record. The two sides have clashed nine times with both teams winning three matches each. Three matches have ended as draws. However, Greece are winless in their last four meetings with Belgium - who claimed a 2-1 win when the sides last met in Qualifying for the 2018 World Cup. Meanwhile, Greece's most recent triumph in this fixture came in a 2002 friendly by three goals to two.
Belgium will be sweating over the fitness of Kevin De Bruyne who was forced off the Champions League final last week. Axel Witsel is also ruled out for the game, while Martinez is unlikely to risk Eden Hazard, considering his recent injury record. Greece will have the likes of Kostas Fortounis, Kostas Stafylidis and Dimitris Siovas missing the friendlies, while Konstantinos Mavropanos the Arsenal defender, on loan at Stuttgart, could make an appearance.
