Belgium: Courtois, Alderweireld, Vermaelen, Kompany, Vertonghen, Witsel, De Bruyne, Dembele, Benteke, Chadli, Mertens.

Scotland: McGregor, Hutton, Caldwell, Berra, Fox, D Fletcher, McArthur, Morrison, Commons, Maloney, S Fletcher.

Preview:

Belgium play host to Scotland tonight in World Cup 2014 Qualifying European Region Group A.

Belgium could opt to leave Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard out of their starting line-up over an alleged lack of willingness to track back and help his defenders.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is set to start in central defence, but Belgium are again without Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini and West Brom striker Romelu Lukaku, who miss out through injury.

Scotland travel to Brussels without Scott Brown (hip) and James Forrest (groin), who are injured and have returned to their club Celtic.

Andy Webster (back) is also ruled out, while Steven Naismith will miss out through suspension.

Manager Craig Levein is likely to start with Steven Fletcher up front, with Kenny Miller on the bench.
