Belgium vs Russia

Probable starting eleven:Belgium:Courtois – Alderweireld, Kompany, van Buyten, Vertonghen – Witsel, Dembele – Mertens, De Bruyne, Hazard – LukakuRussia:Akinfeev – Eshchenko, Ignashevich, V. Berezutski, D. Kombarov – Samedov, Faizulin, Glushakov, Zhirkov, Shatov – KokorinThis is the most interesting match in the group. Most probably the winner will secure a ticket for the Round of 16.I believe this will be Russia.Russia are closer to the victory at Estadio Jornalista Mario. They have a very experienced coach in Fabio Capello. He is an “old fox”, he usually finds the opponent’s weak sides and push exactly there. I believe this will be the case here. Belgium showed lot of weaknesses against poor Algeria, they were one goal down in some period, but somehow managed to win. The Russians didn’t play good against the Koreans, but they will improve the form as the tournament goes. Igor Akinfeev made a big mistake and that was the reason for conceded goal. The experienced forward Alexander Kerzhakov once again proved his worth scoring the equalizer for the Russians. Capello’s players now need to grab three points from this match against Belgium game and I believe that they could do the job. Shirokov is missing the tournament due to an injury, but Capello has no other missing players and will field the best possible side against Belgium.Russia to win is my pick.
