Belgium team want to test themselves with a strong opponent before the qualification match with Wales. They are currently on the 3rd place in group B, but they played just 2 games, while Wales, who are leading, played 3 matches already.

They lost just one game in the whole year 2014, in the WC quarter-final to Argentina. From other 11 games in 2014, they won 9 and drew twice. Chadli, Hazard and Lukaku are in good scoring form in their BPL teams.
Iceland started the qualifications for Euro 2016 very well, they won all 3 matches and are group A leaders. The match with Belgium will be a great test for them, before the important qualification game with the Czech Republic. Sigurðsson is in great form and just last weekend, he scored an extraordinary goal from a free-kick. He also scored 4 goals in the last 3 matches for his National Team. Iceland won their last 4 international games and kept clean sheets in all of them. Still, they lost all 8 games played versus Belgium so far and Iceland are currently ranked on the 28th position in the Fifa World Ranking.
