Match summary Belarus 0-1 Belgium

Unlike the first meeting between the teams in March, which ended 8-0, this time Belgium managed a narrow victory over Belarus, 1-0 with a goal by Dennis Praet. The leadership of the group E made the coach Roberto Martínez call an alternative team, preserving some starters, such as Hazard, who started on the bench. The top scorer Lukaku did not even play, as well as goalkeeper Courtois and other important names in the Belgian team. Despite the minimal score, the Red Devils led the action and did not suffer any scares.
