Scotland Women's side prepare to host Belgium's Women side at the Hampden Park in a fierce UEFA Women's Nations League clash.
The home side were handed a narrow defeat by the Three Lionesses in their opening fixture of the Women's Nations League pushing them down to third spot in the table. Goals from Lucy Bronze and Lauren Hemp late in the first half saw the reigning European champions edge towards a narrow victory at the Stadium of Light.
Despite the result, Scotland's side showed some valiant effort and despite Kirsty Hanson cutting down the deficit, the visitors failed to find the back of the net again resulting in a loss. Pedro Martinez Losa would still be confident of pulling out a rabbit from the hat when they lock horns with Belgium in front of their own faithful.
On the other hand, Belgium's Women side kicked-off their campaign with a scintillating victory against Netherland's Women. Jill Roord broke the deadlock for Netherlands before Marie Detruyer's equaliser for the Belgian Red Flames just two minutes after Roord's strike. With a game heading towards a draw, UDG Tenerife's star forward Jassina Blom found the back of the net in injury time to win the game for the home side and seed them at the pinnacle of Group A.
A win against the home side would see Belgium cement their position at the top of the table and would also make their life easy before they face England.

Belgium's veteran goalkeeper Nicky Evrard will be guarding the goal once again for the Belgian Red Flares. Ives Serneels prefers a back four of Feli Delacauw, Sari Kees, Laura De Neve, and Laura Deloose who'll be seeded in Belgium's defensive line.
All eyes would be on Marie Detruyer who bagged Belgium's opening goal in the UEFA Women's Nations League this term and she'll be supported by Fortuna Sittard's Tessa Wullaert in attack.
