Who will win France vs Belgium?

Who will win this France vs Belgium showdown and make their way through to the Final of the tournament? This could be some game. Normally World cup semi-finals are cagey affairs and this because no-one wants to lose at this cruel stage. Someone has to go down though and in our predictions for the France v Belgium game, we are siding with the depth of Les Bleus to hold themselves together better on the day.

Les Bleus have strength

France went into the 2018 World Cup as one of the main contenders to go all the way. They didn’t really look that big of a threat through the group stage as they never even got close to hitting top gear. Maybe they were just saving themselves because once the round of sixteen started, they kicked into gear. Maybe this is all smart tournament football from them. France took down Argentina in dramatic fashion as they banked a 4-3 win. Then it was more South American opposition for them as they went up against Uruguay in the semi-finals. There was far less drama in that contest as France handled themselves really well to bank a 2-0 win. It was pretty comfortable for them. Normally and understandably you will see semi final matches being cautious affairs because the prize is too big to lose. But we are swinging for the fences with over 2.5 goals for our France v Belgium prediction at 23/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from July 6th, 2018 at 11:22 p.m.).

It is such a good price to take on two teams who do have big strengths going forward. France doesn’t always look the strongest side at the back to be fair, despite three cleans sheets in four. Both teams to score is at 19/20 odds as well* (Betting Odds were taken from July 6th, 2018 at 11:22 p.m.). Antoine Griezmann really came to life for the first time in his tournament with a goal and an assist against Uruguay and they need more big games like that from him. France have such quality in depth that they always have someone to lean on to have a big game, they just aren’t reliant on one player. The French have posted a great W7 D2 record in their last nine games, having suffered a defeat in their last sixteen.

Was Brazil success Belgium’s pinnacle?

How does Belgium top their quarter-final success against Brazil? It was a superbly good performance in the first half which set the Belgians up for success and they delivered. Their big players all stood up to be counted on the day, including Romelu Lukaku who had his best game of the tournament despite not getting on the scoresheet. The Brazilian defence didn’t know how to handle him. Lukaku will be high in confidence and worth a look in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market for this one. Built will they be able to get back to those levels against France? Do they have another high intensity performance in them or did they peak?

France will have seen Belgium’s smart chance information and tactics and will ready for that. That is another thing to take into consideration. Belgium are at 11/10 odds To Qualify* (Betting Odds were taken from July 6th, 2018 at 11:22 p.m.). Belgium have surprisingly only taken one clean sheet in their last four games at the tournament now and they are usually involved in entertaining games as twelve of Belgium’s last fifteen games have gone over 2.5 goals so again. Belgium are on a big seven-match winning streak now and extending that is going to be no easy thing. Of the two nations here they are more prone to throwing up a sub-par disjointed performance. In the bet365 correct score market a France 2-1 option is at 10/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from July 6th, 2018 at 11:22 p.m.) and that makes for one of our leading France v Belgium predictions.

France vs Belgium Prediction

Even though Belgium were so explosive against Brazil, that is going to be hard for them to replicate and we have seen some frailties in their back line at this tournament and the French attack can exploit that. France have more to call on from the bench to deliver the win in this one and we see Les Bleus reaching the final by collecting a win by a one-goal margin.
