Spain v Portugal in Lisbon (WCQ Europe R5; ENC 1A)
Russia v Belgium in Brussels (WCQ Europe R5; ENC 1A)
Spain and Portugal will play their annual local derby fixture. These are usually closely hard-fought encounters with the result rarely having a bearing on any tournament outcome.
Prediction: Portugal by 3 points
Belgium has already been relegated to ENC 1B for the 2014-16 ENC competition. I’m sure a win over the visiting Russian side may prove a point but realistically the Belgians just have not performed well enough to stay in this competition.
Prediction: Russia by 3 points
