64.

19:23

Hancko will be treated again afterwards. The left-back has to take a lot of punishment today. But he will continue playing.

62.

19:22

It seems only a matter of time before the equalizer comes. Bakayoko, who has just been substituted on, has a great chance to equalize, but his shot is cleared off the line by Hancko.

61.

19:21

Slovakia is now struggling, with chaos in the penalty area. This time it is Lukaku who hits the side netting from a few meters.

60.

19:19

Bakayoko from Eindhoven is now in the Belgium team.

58.

19:17

Substitution for Belgium: Johan Bakayoko

58.

19:17

Substitution for Belgium: Orel Mangala

58.

19:17

But Belgium is now really picking up the pace. Trossard shoots from eighteen meters, Dubravka is there. The “Red Devils” want to know now!

58.

19:17

The goal is therefore taken back and the score remains 1-0 for Slovakia.

56.

19:16

After the following corner, the moment apparently came: Onana headed the ball to Lukaku, who only had to push it in from a few meters. But the goal didn’t count, Lukaku was slightly offside.

56.

19:15

Equaliser for Belgium!

56.

19:15

Lukaku tests Dubravka: The Belgian striker is brought into action in the penalty area, but the Slovakian keeper is there.

55.

19:14

De Bruyne tries to pass to Trossard in the penalty area, but again a Slovakian leg gets in the way.

52.

19:13

Slovakia keeps going on the offensive. However, a pass from Lobottka doesn’t find its target.

50.

19:10

Faes loses the ball in his own half, but his teammates are able to correct the Belgian’s mistake.

48.

19:08

Belgium comes out of the dressing room with pressure, this time it is Carrasco who enters the penalty area, but is stopped by the Slovakians.

46.

19:06

Doku appears on the left and plays his way into the penalty area. But the Belgian loses his courage and the Slovakians are able to clear.

46.

19:06

The game is back on, there are no substitutions for either the Slovaks or the Belgians.

46.

19:04

Kick-off 2nd half

18:52

Surprise, surprise, Slovakia are leading 1-0 against Belgium at half-time. And that is not undeserved. The underdog has put in an extremely impressive performance in Frankfurt so far and has had other good chances. But the Belgians are also in the game here and have shown more than once that they are always dangerous. But coach Domenico Tedesco’s team is now being challenged. Lots of ingredients that give hope for an exciting second half.

45.

18:49

End of 1st half

45.

18:48

Which isn’t true at all, because immediately after that there’s another one that doesn’t bring in anything.

45.

18:48

There is one last corner for the Slovaks in the first half…

45.

18:47

There are two minutes of injury time.

45.

18:46

Extra time: 2 minutes of extra time will be played.

41.

18:44

Lukaku has the equalizer on his feet! After a wonderful pass from Carrasco, the striker is suddenly free in front of the Slovakian goal. But the attacker loses the ball and misses this huge opportunity.

41.

18:43

Yellow card for Ivan Schranz (Slovakia)

40.

18:42

The Belgians clear the following corner, but the counterattack attempt is stopped by Hancko with a tactical foul. The consequence: yellow card.

39.

18:41

Next big chance for Slovakia! After a cross from Kucka, Haraslin volleys the ball from almost 20 meters and Casteels has to stretch a lot to parry it.

37.

18:40

While Belgium had some really good chances at the beginning of the match, the “Red Devils” are now finding things much more difficult. The Belgians are lacking a bit of spirit and ideas.

35.

18:37

After the corner, Onana heads the ball, but his attempt is no problem for Dubravka in goal. And for Hancko, the game continues, he is back on the field.

34.

18:36

Doku breaks through on the right side and Hancko is just able to clear his attempted cross for a corner. But the Slovakian seems to have injured himself during the defensive action and is currently requiring treatment.

33.

18:35

By the way, it is by no means the case that the Belgians are now in control of the game, as one might expect. The Slovaks are still playing happily. It remains an open game.

31.

18:34

Trossard also tries on the other side, but his shot is blocked.

30.

18:32

Bozenik tries and tests Casteels. The shot from 20 meters is no threat to the Belgian keeper.

29.

18:31

Mangala receives the first yellow card of the match for an unnecessary foul on Haraslin.

29.

18:30

Yellow card for Orel Mangala (Belgium)

28.

18:30

Slovakia continues to attack the Belgians very offensively. A tactic that has worked so far, but of course also poses risks.

27.

18:29

Pekarik tackles Trossard and is then given a few words by referee Meler. However, he does not receive a card – much to the displeasure of Belgium coach Tedesco.

24.

18:28

Another pass from keeper Dubravka turns into a nail-biter, but the Belgians are unable to capitalize on it.

23.

18:25

We can say that this has been a really courageous performance by the Slovaks so far. The lead is a bit surprising, but it is not undeserved.

22.

18:24

Pekarik serves Bozenik, who doesn’t hesitate in the Belgian penalty area. His shot is blocked, however.

20.

18:22

Trossard with a great chance. Keeper Dubravka loses the ball and the Belgian doesn’t hesitate. But his shot goes just over the goal. Perhaps a pass to Lukaku would have been a better idea…

19.

18:21

20 minutes have passed and it is still a fast-paced game in Frankfurt. Let’s see when this encounter will take its first break. So far, there is no sign of one.

18.

18:20

Bozenik is served in the penalty area, but the Belgian Faes is able to clear at the cost of a corner.

16.

18:18

Onana was injured in a header duel with Duda, but he can continue.

14.

18:17

De Bruyne tries to pass Trossard into the penalty area, but Pekarik is there and can clear.

12.

18:17

Even though Belgium is now putting pressure on the Slovaks, they are still extremely high up. They are clearly not afraid of Belgian counterattacks.

11.

18:13

Belgium is now challenged. How will the “Red Devils” react?

8.

18:11

Man, there’s something going on here. A brilliant start in Frankfurt. Belgium misses the first chances and Slovakia strikes with ice-cold precision.

7.

18:09

What a start here in Frankfurt – Slovakia leads! Belgium’s Doku loses the ball in their own penalty area, Casteels is able to parry Kucka’s first shot, but he has no chance against Schranz’s follow-up shot.

7.

18:08

Goal with right foot for Slovakia, 0:1 by Ivan Schranz

6.

18:07

Goal for Slovakia!

5.

18:07

And that is dangerous! Because Belgium immediately has the next huge chance. Again it is Lukaku who is free in front of Dubravka. But it is said to have been offside.

4.

18:06

There’s a lot going on here. This is also because Slovakia is attacking the Belgians relatively high. They’re not hiding at the back, that’s for sure.

2.

18:04

What a start! Belgium had the first really good chance. Doku dribbled into the Belgian half, then passed to De Bruyne, who missed, but the ball went to Lukaku, who was stopped by keeper Dubravka from a few meters away.

1.

18:01

The ball is rolling. Belgium plays from right to left in the first half.

1.

18:01

Game start

17:58

So, it’s about to start. Umut Meler from Turkey is the referee. Emre Eyisoy and Kerem Ersoy will assist on the sidelines, and the German Bastian Dankert will act as VAR assistant

17:55

The players line up for the anthem. Belgium will play in classic red, Slovakia in white.

17:50

Another look at Slovakia: It is quite possible that the team will not take the greatest risks today. In Group E, the games on equal terms against Romania and Ukraine are likely to be more important for the Slovaks.

17:45

Let’s take a first look at the Frankfurt Arena, which is celebrating its European Championship premiere today. The weather in the Hessian metropolis on the Main is wonderful, the stadium is already well filled. The Belgian fans have made themselves comfortable in the home stand of the local Eintracht. The anticipation is growing.

17:42

The Belgians, however, still have stars Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku. They want to break through the Slovakian defense today. The opponents have a star in central defense, while Milan Skriniar from PSG wants to keep things tight at the back.

17:38

When looking at the Belgian team, it becomes clear that the team has changed significantly since the inglorious 2022 World Cup group stage exit. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has been dropped by Tedesco, and superstar Eden Harzard has since ended his career. The game against Slovakia could be a first indication of how good this new Belgian team is.

17:33

And this is how Slovakia goes: Dubravka – Pekarik, Vavro, Skriniar, Hancko – Lobotka – Kucka, Duda – Schranz, Haraslin – Bozenik

17:31

Let’s take a look at how the “Red Devils” want to tackle this today. This is the lineup:

Casteels – Castagne, Debast, Faes, Carrasco – Onana, Mangala – Trossard, de Bruyne, Doku – Lukaku

17:28

The point “Goal conceded” is a perfect transition to Belgium’s opponent Slovakia. Coach Francesco Calzona’s team also relies on defense. For the Belgians, it will therefore also be about breaking through the Slovakian stronghold today.

17:24

The Belgians are coached by Domenico Tedesco. The former coach of Aue, Schalke and Leipzig has been in charge of the Belgians since February 2023 – and very successfully. His team survived the qualification without defeat. In addition, the Belgians only conceded eight goals in the 14 games under his direction.

17:20

Today, the focus is mainly on the Belgians. For some, the “Red Devils” are a dark horse for the title, for others even more than that. In any case, it is clear that the third-placed team in the world rankings is the favorite in today’s game and in Group E in general.

17:15

Hello and welcome to the second game of the day! After Romania surprisingly defeated Ukraine in Group E, Belgium and Slovakia are now entering the tournament. Kick-off in Frankfurt is at 6 p.m.
