Date: 02 June 2018

Venue: Stade Roi Baudouin

Belgium begin their World Cup preparation with a clash against Portugal at the Stade Roi Baudouin.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h45.

Portugal have already been involved in friendly action since announcing their squad for Russia 2018 as they drew 2-2 with Tunisia during the week.

Meanwhile, Belgian coach Roberto Martinez will use this clash as a last test for some of his players as he is set name his final squad on Monday.

Martinez already made a big omission from his provisional team, leaving out AS Roma midfielder Radja, who subsequently announced his retirement.

The last time these two nations met, Portugal recorded a 2-1 win in an international friendly in 2006.

In head-to-head to statistics, the two teams have met on 10 occasions, with both nations registering three wins while four matches ended in draws.

Here's how they line up:

Belgium: Courtois, Alderweireld, Kompany, Vertonghen, Meunier, Dembele, De Bruyne, E. Hazard, Mertens, Carrasco, R. Lukaku.

Portugal: Beto; Cédric, Pepe, Fonte, Guerreiro; Bernardo Silva, Carvalho, João Moutinho, João Mário; Gelson Martins, Guedes.
