Our prediction for this match:
All eyes will be on King Baudouin Stadium when Belgium and Serbia square off against each other in a highly-anticipated international friendly. The Red Devils are eyeing their fourth consecutive win over the Eagles, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Kevin De Bruyne remains on the sidelines with injury as well as Jan Vertonghen and Amadou Onana, but Arsenal forward Leonardo Trossard is back to the squad.
Dragan Stojkovic’s men, on the other hand, will use this match as good preparation for the decisive Euro 2024 qualifier against Bulgaria. As the Serbs are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we are tempted to put our money on over 2.5 goals. As for the away team, former Lazio ace Sergej Milinkovic Savic has been ruled out with injury, while Superliga trio Mihajlo Ilic – Stefan Mitrovic – Vladimir Lucic has been omitted.

Serbia have been playing as an independent nation since 2006. The Serbs made it to the 2010 FIFA World Cup finals and despite defeating star-studded Germany in the group stages of the showpiece tournament in South Africa, they eventually failed to book their place in the last 16. The Eagles, though, failed to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil as they experienced all sorts of problems in their qualifying group.
A number of top-class footballers played for Serbia and former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic is regarded as one of the best players in the history of the Serbian national team. Vidic scored two goals in 56 appearances for Serbia and he announced his retirement from the national team on 24 October, 2011.
