Belarus to face Luxemburg in WC 2018 qualifier after defeat vs Netherlands

The Belarus national football team is going to hold another match of the qualifying campaign for the World Cup 2018 on October 10. Behind is a home draw vs France (0:0) and an away defeat against the Netherlands (1:4) on Saturday.

This evening Borisov Arena is waiting for the underdogs Luxemburg.

However, the Belarusian team's relationship with semi-amateurs from a small duchy has never been simple. 

Suffice it to recall the dramatic defeat of Belarus 0:1 in Gomel in 2007 when the visitors scored the winning goal in stoppage time. 

Two years ago, in a European Championship qualifier, Belarus drew against Luxembourg 1:1, while in 2010 (also away) Belarus had to settle for a goalless draw.

Luxembourg has been stubborn during this qualifying campaign. They only slightly lost to Bulgaria (3:4) and Sweden (0:1). However, they have not yet met France and the Netherlands, the group favorites.

However, the White Wings still have four victories against Luxembourg. Hopefully, today this figure will increase to five. The starting whistle will sound at Borisov Arena at 21:45 Belarus time.
