Poland vs Belgium Recap – UEFA Nations League I FOX Soccer
Poland scored the first goal against Belgium, with the clinical arrival of Robert Lewandowski in the 28th minute. However, Belgium turned the game around with Axel Witsel’s equalizer in the 42nd minute. In the second half, Belgium continued to press on, thanks to goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Leandro Trossard, Leander Dendoncker and Loïs Openda in the 59th, 73rd, 80th, 83rd and 90th minutes.
Both teams beat Switzerland and drew against Spain to open the Nations League tournament.
Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner (2008, ’13, ’14, ’16, ’17) and 2008 FIFA World Player of the Year, is Portugal’s star.
Portugal lead the all-time series 2-1, with no draws.
The teams last appeared in the quarter-finals of the 2012 UEFA European Championship, a 1-0 win for Portugal on 21 June.
Portugal are 3-0-1 in their last four matches, beating their opponents 10-2.
The Czech Republic are 1-1-2 in their last four games.
Like Czechoslovakia, the Czech Republic took second place in the 1962 World Cup and won the UEFA European Championship in 1976.
FOX Sports football writer Doug McIntyre and FOX Bet sports trader Olegs Nikolajevs both like betting options that don’t pick a winner.
Spain are coming off a convincing 4-0 win over Switzerland.
“As hard as it is to see the Czechs steal away points against the Portuguese, it’s possible against an inconsistent team who could be more tired than most in their third game this week,” McIntyre said. “After all, Ronaldo is 37 now, and starting centre-back Pepe is 39. It might be a long time, but at +300 a draw isn’t a bad bet either.”

Nikolajevs said Jan Kuchta playing the main striker paid off for the Czech Republic. The Lokomotiv Moscow player scored a goal in each of the two Nations League matches, accounting for half of the Czech Republic’s goals.
“The game itself promises to be engaging,” Nikolajevs said. “Portugal look like favourites, but we shouldn’t eliminate the Czech Republic. They’re a completely different team to the one that fought for a ticket to the next World Cup.”
