India vs Belgium FIH Pro League Live Score: The Indian men's and women's hockey teams will return to action on Saturday after a tough outing in the FIH Pro League the day before. Both suffered defeats against hosts Belgium and it's the same opponent they face today in Antwerp.

The Indian women's team battled back to 1-2 after an entertaining match against Belgium, with Sangita Kumari's goal giving them hope but ultimately not enough to force a draw or better.

On their way to Paris, Harmanpreet Singh's men faced a serious reality check as reigning Olympic men's hockey champions Belgium largely outplayed them to record a thumping 4-1 victory. Before that, the Indian men drew 2-2 against Argentina and then won in the penalty shootout for the bonus point.

In the Women's Hockey Pro League, coach Harendra Singh's new tenure began with back-to-back defeats against Argentina and Belgium. But Salima Tete's side went one better against Belgium, losing 0-2 thanks to two quick goals in the third quarter, a day after a 0-5 loss to Argentina. On Saturday, they made further progress and tried their luck.

The Indian teams will play four more matches, including today's, in the Antwerp mini-tournament before finishing their season in London immediately afterwards.
