Belgium v Wales

Euro 2016 Group B qualifier

King Baudouin Stadium, Brussels

17:00 GMT kick-off

Wales will be looking to extend their stay at the top of Group B when they take on Belgium in their latest Euro 2016 qualifier on Sunday evening, and manager Chris Coleman insists his side have nothing to fear.

With two wins and a draw from their opening three matches, the visitors travel to Brussels in fine form, confident in the knowledge that their last trip there resulted in a 1-1 draw.

The World Cup quarter-finalists seem to be an ever-improving side, though, and Marc Wilmots will be expecting a victory, even in the absence of captain Vincent Kompany.

The Red Devils still have plenty of established Premier League talent to call upon, and will be motivated by the fact that three points will draw them level with the group leaders heading into the game.

Gareth Bale is so often the man that Wales look to for inspiration, but the pressure will be taken off the Real Madrid superstar's shoulders a little, following the return of Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.
