Belgium have quickly moved on from their World Cup heartache and can make it four wins in four games by beating Switzerland in their Nations League A Group 2 clash in Brussels.

Roberto Martinez's squad selection has been restricted by injuries to Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele and Kevin De Bruyne but he still has plenty of quality players to choose from.

Eden Hazard tops the bill and will be aiming to get on the scoresheet for a fourth successive international.

Hazard's penalty opened the scoring as Belgium kicked off their Nations League challenge with a 3-0 success away to Iceland last month.

Switzerland have also faced Iceland, winning 6-0 in St Gallen, but they were soon brought back down to earth by a 1-0 loss away to an understrength England three days later.

The Swiss performed about as well as could be expected at the World Cup by reaching the last 16 although their limitations were exposed by the 1-0 loss to Sweden in Saint Petersburg.

Due to a lack of individual quality, Switzerland are a side with little scope to progress and they are likely to be outclassed by the Belgians, who are value at a shade of odds-on to overcome a one-goal Asian handicap deficit.

The bet is landed if Belgium win by two or more goals and stakes are returned if the hosts win by one.
