Belgium will be looking to build on a 2-0 win over Denmark when they take on Iceland in their second group game in the UEFA Nations League. The Red Devils continue where they left in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, and it is no wonder they are seen as hot favourites to win Tuesday’s football game. Both Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard missed the Denmark clash, but the duo was not sorely missed in the opener. Supabets allows users to use analytical tools before placing a bet on one of the teams.
As always, Romelu Lukaku will lead the line for the Red Devils against Iceland. The Icelanders, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to England. The visitors face an uphill task in Tuesday’s football match, and regardless of which Belgium players will be deployed in the starting XI, home win should be considered. Iceland defender Sverrir Ingi Ingason is sidelined through suspension. Using the Hollywoodbet platform, you can see the team’s odds and trade the way you want.

HIGHLIGHTED PLAYER (THORGAN HAZARD):
While his brother Eden Hazard stars for Chelsea, Thorgan Hazard plays for Borussia Monchengladbach in Bundesliga. Thorgan was born in La Louviere, Belgium on 29 march, 1993 and he played for the likes of Royal Stade Brainois, Tubize and Lens during his youth career.
Hazard made 14 appearances for Lens before joining Chelsea in 2012. He did not make his Chelsea debut as he was immediately sent on loan to Zulte Waregem, where he scored 17 goals in 73 league appearances for the club. On 5 July, 2014 he signed a loan deal with Borussia Monchengladbach and in February, 2015 he signed a permanent contract with the Bundesliga outfit. The Belgian midfielder made his first start for the club on 24 September, 2014 against Hamburg.
Speaking of his international career, Thorgan Hazard made his Belgium debut on 29 May, 2013 in a 4-2 win over USA. He has 15 caps for Belgium U21 and he scored nine goals in 15 appearances for the team. His full name is Thorgan Ganael Francis Hazard.
HIGHLIGHTED TEAM (ICELAND):
Iceland had little to no success during the first 60 years of entering the FIFA competitions, failing to qualify to a single major tournament in that period, but the team then went on to make tremendous progress at the start of the 21st century.
The Nordic side narrowly missed out on a place at the 2014 World Cup, losing in the play-off to Croatia, but they then enjoyed a thoroughly impressive qualifying campaign to reach the Euro 2016, taking 20 points from 10 matches to leave Turkey and Netherlands trailing in their wake.
As a result, the generation featuring players like Gylfi Sigurdsson, Aron Gunnarsson, Kolbeinn Sigthorsson and Emil Hallfredsson will go down as one of the most successful in the national team history and it could be quite some time before another team repeat their success. Even if he was only used as a bit-part player during the Euro 2016 qualifiers, Eidur Gudjohnsen has got to be mentioned as the first Icelandic footballer to have played for top European sides.
