Belgium’s Path to Euro Glory 🏆

Belgium, ever grateful to Dodi Lukebakio for his stunning brace (12, 55) and Roma’s Romelu Lukaku, who netted the third goal (58), displayed a remarkable prowess that paved the way to their Euro qualification. Conversely, the Austrian team, while demonstrating a commendable effort, witnessed their goals from Konrad Laimer (73) and Marcel Sabitzer (84) as consolations.

This win is emblematic of Belgium’s stellar performance throughout the qualifiers, establishing them as leaders of the group with an enviable 16 points, arising from five victories and a singular, goalless draw against Austria.

Maintaining an Undefeated Streak 🔥

Belgium has preserved its unbeaten record, extending over eight consecutive matches, particularly since its loss to Morocco in the group stage of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Azerbaijan x Estonia: A Struggle for Victory 🇦🇿🇪🇪

In a parallel confrontation within the same group, Azerbaijan savored its initial triumph by subduing host Estonia with a 2-0 scoreline in Tallinn. Goals from Toral Bayramov (9) and Ramil Sheydayev (45+4 penalty) heralded Azerbaijan’s maiden victory in the qualifiers after enduring three defeats and a lone draw. This success elevates their tally to 4 points from 5 matches, placing them in fourth place, while Estonia remains stagnant at a single point, languishing at the bottom of the standings.

Despite the win, Azerbaijan’s prospects for securing the second ticket remain precariously slim.
