Wales will welcome Belgium to the Cardiff City Stadium in the final game week of the European World Cup Qualifiers on Tuesday, November 16 (Wednesday, November 17, 1:15 AM IST). While Belgium have qualified for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, Wales need at least a draw to ensure they make it to the playoffs.
The Welsh national side also can make it to the playoffs despite the defeat, but that will require the Czech Republic to lose or draw against Estonia. Another scenario that can take Wales through to the playoffs is if Wales lose by one goal and the Czech Republic manage to win by just one goal, it would leave the two teams on equal points and goal difference, but with Wales having the better Head-to-head result they will go through.
The Belgium side on the other hand are unbeaten in their last 27 World Cup qualifiers and will want to end yet another match unbeaten and close the second-longest current unbeaten run behind England
In terms of team news, Wales will be without Ethan Ampadu, who will miss out after being ruled out through suspension, while Gareth Bale too misses out after being left out of the squad. As for Belgium they have secured qualification and have sent the Real Madrid pair of Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard, Jason Denayer and second-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet back to their respective clubs.
