Belgium VS Austria match analysis

Very important match especially for the hosts who are coming off the win in Kazakhstan where they've recorded their first 3 points. After somewhat unlucky defeats against Germany @home and Turkey away Belgium needs to win today in order to stay in chase for the top 2 spot in Group A. They have a young team with some very good talents and it could be that they are on the right track to become very competitive. Kompany is back in the team and that will put more strength in their defence. The attacking line is also looking to be in good form with the likes of Genk duo Ogunjimi and Vossen and there's also a very talented Lukaku from Anderlecht. So there are some good options for the coach Leekens. The likes of Van Buyten and Fellaini together with the mentioned players are looking like a very good squad that should be able to win in front of their fans against a team that has a very poor record record away from home. Austrians have started their Euro 2012 campaign with 2 home wins against Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan and now face the toughest test so far. Have to say that I don't rate them to be on the same level as Belgium at the moment although there are some good players like Arnautovic and Janko but the later one is out due to injury and that's a big blow for the visitors. In the last qualifying campaign they've maneged to get only 2 points away from home drawing with Romania (when Romania was just awful) and Faroe Islands and this just speaks for it self. They've never been a force away from home and I expect them to have a lot of problems tonight against this young and talented Belgium squad. Medium stakes for a home win is my call.
