Betting Preview: Latest Results and Roster Updates

Belgium National Football Team

Belgium have failed to live up to expectations in Germany. The Red Devils lost their first game against Slovakia with a 1:0 score. They won 2:0 against Romania in the second game before drawing 0:0 with Ukraine in their last group game. That result consigned them to second in Group E with four points from three games.

Kevin De Bruyne’s doubtful call to ignore fans cannot deny his excellent game for the Red Devils despite recent results. In their sole win so far, he scored the second goal, and heading into this encounter, he will be tasked with leading his team to victory. Other players like Onana, Tielemens, Doku, and Lukaku must up their games to defeat France.

Belgium have no injury concerns heading into this game.

France National Football Team

Much like Belgium, Les Bleus has been uninspiring in this contest. Although they have yet to taste defeat, France has won only one game in this competition. Two successive draws against the Netherlands and Poland see them finish second in Group D behind Austria, although they beat them in the group opener.

Kylian Mbappe returned from injury to score a penalty in France’s 1:1 draw with Poland. He will be crucial to securing victory for his country against Belgium. In terms of their strengths, Les Bleus has been defensively solid in conceding one goal so far. However, Le Bleus must improve their creative output against Belgium.

France does not have any injury concerns heading into this game.

France can score goals, even if they have been unable to show that in their recent group games. In their last game, Les Bleus had expected goals of 2.38 xG compared to Poland’s 1.14. Similarly, they created five big chances in that match-up but scored once. Although Belgium’s defense held its own against Ukraine, there are still strong question marks over their abilities. Now, they face a more refined French side who will be up for this challenge. Given this situation, we expect Les Bleus to create and convert their chances in this encounter.

Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 2.02 (1/1)

A low-scoring duel might seem likely, considering both teams have scored only two goals each in the competition. However, a closer look reveals a potential goal-fest waiting to unfold. France possesses a fearsome attacking trio in Mbappé, Dembélé, and Griezmann. Although their recent performances haven’t been stellar, a more open contest could help them rediscover their scoring touch.

Belgium also has enough firepower in its team. Lukaku remains a potent threat despite being very poor so far. De Bruyne’s masterful playmaking is another threat. With the potential for a more open game and much at stake, both teams will likely score. Adding weight to this prediction, two of the last three clashes have seen both sides score.

Anytime goalscorer: Kylian Mbappe @ 2.32 (4/3)

Mbappé’s electric pace and clinical finishing make him a constant goal threat for France. After breaking his Euros duck against Poland, his confidence will be high. As France’s talisman, Kylian is heavily involved in their attacking plays, increasing his chances of finding the net. Furthermore, Mbappé steps up as France’s designated penalty taker. A penalty can’t be ruled out because of France’s attacking prowess and Belgium’s occasional defensive lapses. Without a doubt, Mbappe is the most likely player to score in this contest anytime. Euro 2024 odds for playoffs for this option is 2.32 (4/3).
