Coming off the back of an impressive third-place finish at this summers World Cup finals in Russia, Roberto Martinez’s Red Devils will travel to Glasgow on Friday to face off against a Scotland side desperately short of form.

Starting with the hosts, after only their goal difference saw them fail to land a playoff spot in qualifying, Scotland have parted ways with Gordan Strachan and brought in former boss Alex McLeish. While the Tartan Army did only lose two of their 10 group matches, Scotland have been drastically short of form entering the Nations League. Coming off the back of a 1-0 loss to Mexico back in June, The Blues have now lost four of their last five and their form in the final third will be a huge concern for McLeish. With a squad filled with youth, Scotland have now failed to score in each of their four defeats.

As for Roberto Martinez’s side, with a group of players billed as Belgium’s Golden Generation, The Red Devils landed a third-place finish in Russia this summer. Eventually falling to a 1-0 loss to eventual champions France in the semi-finals, Belgium have now only lost one of their last 26 matches in all competitions. Now keeping a clean sheet in eight of their last 12, along with an impressive defensive lineup, Belgium are also in impressive form in front of goal. Scoring two or more goals in eight of their last nine wins, Manchester United’s 25-year-old striker Romelu Lukaku is one man to watch. Scoring four in the finals, Lukaku is now Belgium’s leading goalscorer.
