Belgium host Poland on Wednesday night seeking a first win of their UEFA Nations League campaign.

The hosts are at the bottom of Group 4 after losing 4-1 to leaders Netherlands while Poland beat Wales 2-1 in their opener.

Batshuayi’s consolation on matchday one meant that Belgium have incredibly managed to find the back of the net in each of their last 45 games.

Poland head to Brussels having picked up seven victories from their last 10 matches in all competitions.

The visitors are looking to extend their unbeaten streak to 4 games and a victory would take them to the top of the table.
