Missing Players and team news:
Czech Republic did not pick up any injury problems during their win over Estonia, meaning that the same squad will be available to head coach Silhavy for this game. It would not be a surprise to see the same XI sent onto the field, with Patrik Schick keeping his spot at the tip of the attack, having scored his 10th international goal on Thursday night. Burnley’s Matej Vydra and Legia Warsaw’s Tomas Pekhart will again be pushing for starts, but Silhavy is unlikely to alter the side that scored six times in an impressive performance. As for Belgium, Martinez could make a change to his back three, with Jason Denayer potentially coming in for Thomas Vermaelen, with that alteration taking place at the interval against Wales. Timothy Castagne and Leandro Trossard also both appeared off the bench on Thursday, but Martinez is likely to resist the temptation to shuffle his pack for this match. As a result, De Bruyne, Lukaku and Dries Mertens should again start as the front three, with Thorgan Hazard and Thomas Meunier featuring in the wing-back positions. Belgium’s most high-profile absentee is Eden Hazard, with the 30-year-old on the sidelines through injury.
