WALES vs BELGIUM STATS

Wales have never made it to the semi-finals of a major tournament. Their best showings: quarter-finals appearance at the 1958 World Cup & this edition of the Euros.

In their four matches so far at Euro 2016, Wales have trailed for only 2 min & 31 seconds.

All three goals they’ve conceded in Euro 2016 have come after the 56th minute and have been scored by substitutes.

In their Round of 16 clash against Northern Ireland, Wales managed just one shot on target – a Gareth Bale free-kick which was saved.

Excluding own goals, Aaron Ramsey has scored or assisted 3 of Wales’ last 5 goals.

Wales have kept 2 consecutive clean-sheets at a major tournament for the first time.

BELGIUM

Belgium last qualified for the semi-finals of a major tournament during the 1986 World Cup, where they eventually finished 4th.

Belgium have scored 7 of their 8 goals at Euro 2016 after half-time. 6 of these goals were scored in last 30 minutes.

Kevin De Druyne has played a part in 12 Belgium goals in last 12 matches – 5 goals & 7 assists.

They’ve kept a clean-sheet in their last three matches – their longest run at a major tournament.

Eden Hazard has 3 assists at Euro 2016 – same as he assisted for Chelsea during the 2015/16 Premier League season.

Hazard, after completing 12 dribbles against Hungary in the Round of 16, created a record for the most number of dribbles in a European Championship game since 1980.
