The action in the UEFA Nations League is back with the second leg of the tournament this month. With only 2 months remaining for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, it’s an opportunity for teams to analyze their strengths and weaknesses and find the right team combination before the mega event. Belgium will start their second leg by hosting Wales at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels on Thursday, Matchday 5. The Belgians faced only 1 defeat in the first 4 games and they will aim to target the top spot in their group by winning the next two games against Wales and Netherlands.
