Belgium Bounces Back: Dominant 2-0 Win Over Romania Sets Stage for Group Showdown

Belgium rebounded from their initial setback against Slovakia with a commanding 2-0 victory over Romania in their second match of the tournament. The Belgians wasted no time asserting their dominance as Tielemans struck early in the second minute, capitalizing on a well-crafted play initiated by Lukaku's precise assist from the edge of the penalty area. Throughout the first half, Belgium maintained control, showcasing their offensive prowess with a total of 20 shots, nine of which were on target, resulting in an impressive xG of 1.8. Romania, while resilient, struggled to convert opportunities, managing 14 shots with five on target and an xG of 0.83.

The second half saw Romania mount a spirited effort to level the score, showing greater attacking intent. However, Belgium effectively sealed the match in the 79th minute when De Bruyne deftly finished from a long goal-kick by Casteels, securing a 2-0 lead. With 55% possession throughout the game, Belgium justified their victory with a dominant performance, while Romania's commendable effort leaves them with positives despite the defeat.

With all teams in the group now level on three points, the stage is set for a thrilling conclusion as Belgium looks ahead to their final group-stage encounter.
