Euro 2024 – Belgium vs Slovakia | Match Info, Preview & Lineup

Belgium and Slovakia will kick off their Euro 2024 Group E campaigns on Monday evening with an exciting match at Frankfurt Arena.

Romania and Ukraine are also in this group, making it a highly competitive section. Both Belgium and Slovakia are eager to start strong. Unfortunately, Belgium will be without Jan Vertonghen and Arthur Theate due to injuries, and Thomas Meunier is also doubtful.

Belgium is expected to play in a 3-4-2-1 formation, with their top scorer, Romelu Lukaku, leading the attack. Lukaku has scored 85 goals in 115 appearances for Belgium, and the 31-year-old will be crucial to their success in the tournament.

Manchester City stars Jeremy Doku and Kevin De Bruyne will be key players, while the defensive absences might give Maxim De Cuyper, the Club Brugge defender, a chance to earn his third cap. Axel Witsel will likely be in central defense, alongside Leicester City’s Wout Faes. In midfield, Everton’s Amadou Onana and Orel Mangala are expected to start, with Youri Tielemans and Arthur Vermeeren available as substitutes.

For Slovakia, Denis Vavro has a minor thigh issue but is expected to start. Juraj Kucka should also be fit, and Robert Bozenik, who has seven international goals, will be in the attack.

The Slovakia squad is led by Paris Saint-Germain defender Milan Skriniar, who will earn his 69th cap. Their top scorer, Ondrej Duda, with 13 goals, is a sure starter, and Napoli midfielder Stanislav Lobotka will play his 56th match for Slovakia.
