From the beginning of the match, the players of both teams showed commitment. The supporters at the King Baudouin Stadium were able to admire several occasions. The Belgians regularly penetrated the Swiss defense with a high pressing and good opportunities for Youri Tielemans and Yannick Carrasco. Despite these good actions, the first half ended goalless.

The beginning of the second half was quieter. It was only in the 58th minute that Lukaku opened the scoring resulting from a nice Belgian action. Despite a slight domination and good gameplay, the Gavranovic scored the 1-1. At the end of the game Lukaku scored his second goal of the evening to give the three points to Belgium.

Next Tuesday, Belgium will play its next friendly against the Netherlands in Brussels (kick-off at 20:45).
