Belgium will want to offer a reminder of their World Cup credentials as they host Canada in Group F.

Roberto Martinez’s side are second in the Fifa rankings but haven’t been discussed on the same level as Argentina and Brazil, or even England and France, ahead of their opener.

The Red Devils were semi-finalists in 2018 but there have been signs recently that their golden generation era is coming to an end as key players age.

Meanwhile, Canada will be there to prove they aren’t just at the World Cup to make up the numbers as they prepare to make their first appearance at the tournament since 1986.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of today’s game.

When is Belgium vs Canada?

The match kicks off at 19:00 GMT on Wednesday, November 23 at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium.

What TV channel is it on and how can I watch online?

It will be broadcast live on BBC One, with coverage starting at 6.30pm, as well as online on BBC iPlayer.

What’s up with the team?

Romelu Lukaku is a major doubt for Belgium after an injured season for Inter Milan, leaving Roberto Martinez to look for other options in attack. Thorgan Hazard is also an injury doubt.

Canada are set to be without star player Alphonso Davies in what is a blow ahead of their biggest game in a generation. The Bayern Munich left-back and winger suffered a hamstring injury and was unable to recover in time.

Planned compositions

Belgium: Courtois; Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Debast; Miller, Tielemans, Witsel, Castagne; De Bruyne, Batshuayi, E Hazard

Canada: Borjan; Laryea, Johnston, Steven Vitoria, K Miller, Adekugbe; Buchanan, Hutchinson, Eustaquio; David, Larine

Odds

Belgium: 4/7

Draw: 7/2

Canada: 27/5

Prediction

It would be a shame, especially for Canada, if neither side was complete. However, Belgium have a lot of depth and with a player like Kevin De Bruyne they should have too much quality. Belgium 3-1 Canada
