- 0' - The match kicks off with home fans waiting with anticipation for Finland to score. At the same time, Belgium does not seem to pull back! Let’s get it on!
- 5' - Players seem to put ease on their energy level Spectators hardly appreciate such approach. Teams need to speed up the tempo.
- 10' - Lukas Hradecky has certainly something to prove this evening. He made 0 appearances with only 2 goals this season.
- 15' - The teams are not in a rush to score plenty of goals. It might look strange considering Finland that had 3 games and scored 2 goals.
- 20' - Spectators do not have much to choose from both teams. The sides had several scoring chances but they still need a bit more than just a sight of a goal.
- 25' - Both teams are passing the ball around with high level of urgency. Finland needs to do something about it to get closer to the goal.
- 30' - The referee is likely to let players tackle, as he already missed some meaty challenges during opening seconds. He is still to establish what should not be done by the players and what is acceptable on the pitch. It’s going to be a tough game for Michy Batshuayi suffering a number of foals already.
- 35' - It looks like no one’s ball. Finland is used to counterattacking playing. None of the sides are ready to take the lead.

- 59' - The whistle greets Tim Sparv as he departs to be replaced by Rasmus Schüller.
