The match between Belgium and France is a match between the heavyweights of European football. Both national teams come from a disappointing Euro 2020 but, with this competition, they have the opportunity to take revenge in particular Belgium who would like to avenge the defeat in the 2018 World Cup semifinals suffered by the French.
The goal of Martinez’s men will undoubtedly be to win the trophy. In fact, Belgium is still the only national team in history to be in first place in the ranking not to have forfeited any important trophy.
The “Red Devils” come to this tournament after having won 5 of their last six games (1 draw), scoring 16 goals.
Didier Deschamps after the exit in the round of 16 of Euro 2020 against Switzerland has seen a slow recovery of him (2 draws and 1 victory in the World Cup Qualifiers). However, he has a comforting record from him: France has not lost an official with Belgium since September 1981!
The journey in UNL was also very comforting, spiced with 5 wins and only 1 draw in an iron group with Croatia and Portugal.
He has contributed to 4 goals in his last 2 games (3 goals-1 assists)
If Karim scores, France can be “calm”. In the 24 games in which he scored his country he recorded 22 wins and 2 draws!
The over 0.5 in the first half has occurred 16 times in Belgium’s last 18 international matches!
Belgium will have to win. The elimination of Italy will give more confidence to Martinez’s men who in my opinion are superior to Spain. Pogba for the transalpines could give a show given the rumors that they want him ever closer to Juventus. I would bet like this:
Pogba Scorer Yes
Correct Score 2-2 (has not occurred since 1986!)
