Belgium will be looking for a better overall performance after their less than impressive 2-1 win over Algeria in their opening match. For Wilmots' men, a win will all but seal qualification to the next round. For Russia, a win will see them leapfrog the Belgians for top spot in the group.

Betfair Sportsbook BonusSubstitute Dries Mertens was a game-changer for Belgium with his pace on the wings and we will likely start here. Lukaku was abysmal against Algeria, and was rightly withdrawn at the hour mark but the powerful striker shoudl retain his spot. Tottenham duo Mousa Dembélé and Nacer Chadli were disappointing as well, so goalscoring sub Marouane Fellaini could be in line for starts. The main injury concern for Belgium is a groin problem for Vincent Kompany, but the captain is expected to lead his side out again at the Maracana

Russia came back from a goal down to claim a point against South Korea. Anyway, the goal thye conceded against South Korea was by no means due to defensive frailty. Only an uncharacteristic error from keeper Igor Akinfeev allowed South Korea to score from range. Another draw here would keep them in contention ahead of their final group match against Algeria .

In the first game, boss Capello opted for a very conservative starting lineup which had the attacking talents of Alan Dzagoev and Aleksandr Kerzhakov on the bench. The latter could be rewarded with a start while Kokorin is likely to retain his starting berth, moved out to the left flank..

Russia are unbeaten in their last 11 matches under Fabio Capello while Belgium have won 8 of their last 9 matches.


Belgium (4-2-3-1): Courtois; Alderweireld, Kompany, Van Buyten, Vertonghen; Witsel, Fellaini; Mertens, De Bruyne, Hazard; Lukaku.
