Coming off a positive showing at the 2014 World Cup, Belgium looks to take a step further when they hit the road for the first time in UEFA Euro 2016 qualification.

The Red Devils crushed minnows Andorra, 6-0, in their opener, but face a fellow World Cup 2014 participant in Bosnia and Herzegovina in Zenica. It will be a reunion for Belgium defender Vincent Kompany and Bosnia forward Edin Dzeko, teammates together at Manchester City, as well as a battle between some of the game’s top stars in Belgium’s Eden Hazard and Bosnia’s Miralem Pjanic.

Elsewhere in Euro 2016 qualifying, the Netherlands will attempt to return to winning ways when it visits Iceland, Italy hits the road to take on Malta, and Gareth Bale and Wales fly to Cyprus as they try to stay atop Group B.

In the evening, the Argentine Primera Division concludes Round 11 when Arsenal de Sarandi host Copa Libertadores champions San Lorenzo.
