Tip Reasoning

  • France have seen both teams score in five of their last six games.
  • Belgium have scored in 38 consecutive matches, while France have netted in each of their last 14.
  • Five of France’s last six games have ended as draws, including three 1-1 stalemates.

Red Devils look for crucial win

Belgium’s summer ended in disappointment once again as they were beaten by eventual Euro 2020 winners Italy but Roberto Martinez’s side have a great chance to reach the UEFA Nations League final this week and they can certainly push overall favourites France close.

Their loss to Italy is their only defeat in their last 17 matches and they have won 14 of those, although admittedly most of their opposition in this period was far inferior to the star-studded France team.

France struggle to find form

Les Bleus aren’t in the greatest shape, though. The pre-tournament favourites suffered a shock elimination at the hands of Switzerland in the first knockout round of Euro 2020 and they haven’t managed to pick themselves up since.

They come into this semi-final tie having drawn five of their last six games, with a 2-0 win over Finland being their only success in this period.

They have conceded in five of these six matches and head into this tie without the Covid-stricken N’Golo Kante. That is likely to have a significant impact defensively and a clean sheet looks unlikely for Didier Deschamps’ side.

Expect goals at both ends in Turin

France have scored in each of their last 14 matches, though, while Belgium have shipped four goals in their last four games. Backing both teams to score is my preference here, while I’m also opting for a fourth 1-1 draw in seven games for France as my correct score prediction.

Romelu Lukaku stands out as an anytime goalscorer pick, too. The Chelsea forward is Belgium’s all-time leading goalscorer with 67 goals in 100 caps and he has scored four goals in his last three appearances for Belgium, so backing him to punish Les Bleus’ defence looks good value.
