The second-best-ranked side in the world got off to their World Cup campaign with a win, but it wasn’t too convincing. Michy Batshuayi got the only goal of the game against Canada in what was a rather lacklustre performance from the Belgians.
As for Morocco, they got a hard-earned point against former World Cup finalists Croatia in what was yet another 0 – 0 draw in Qatar.
This means there’s a lot on the line in this game, with the victor potentially sitting comfortably on top of the group, depending on what happens in the other fixture.
With this – here’s everything you need to know about the game.

The only real injury woe for either side is that unfortunately Bayern Munich and Morocco star Noussair Mazraoui picked up a knock against Croatia and is doubtful for this one. Other than that, it appears that both managers have the rest of their sides at their disposal.
Romelu Lukaku has been nursing an injury, but looks ready to come back soon – so we could also see him feature in this one.
