EURO 2024 Predictions: France – Belgium (01-07-2024)

After the group stage of the EURO 2024, France and England, the favourites, face a lot of criticism. While England finished first in the group without their best performance, France finished second and did not score a single goal from the play in three games.

In the group, France won the first match 1-0 against Austria, when Maximilian Wober scored an own goal.
The second match was 0-0 against the Netherlands, and the third was a 1-1 draw against Poland. Kylian Mbappe scored his first goal of the Euros in this match. The goal was scored on a penalty kick.

Belgium started the tournament somewhat unexpectedly, with a 0-1 defeat against Slovakia. The result does not reflect how the match was played, as Belgium had many chances to score – two goals were cancelled after VAR replays. In the second game, they beat Romania 2-0, and in the last game, they drew 0-0 against Ukraine.

We saw Belgium’s potential in the group stage, and it’s fair to say that the team hasn’t played its best game yet. However, it’s unfortunate that we have to play against France in the eighth final.

Before the tournament started, France was predicted to be in the final or at least in the Top 4. This is not surprising, given that the team made it all the way to the final at the World Cup two years ago, only to lose to Argentina after a series of penalties.

Still, the group stage of EURO 2024 should be a cause for concern. A team with so much talent was unable to score in 270 minutes. It may be recalled that at EURO 2020, it was in the eighth finals that France was knocked out of the tournament, losing to Switzerland after a penalties.

Nothing much was expected from this Belgium team – they are talented but not the “golden generation”.
However, there is no need to underestimate it completely. With Kevin De Bruyne in the team and Romelu Lukaku in the attack, Belgium can beat any team on a good day.

It is clear that France will be seen as the favourites in this quarter-final match, and they will be the ones who feel the pressure.

Belgium had a serious talk after the game against Ukraine, and Kevin De Bruyne had a serious conversation with his teammates at the stadium. This shows that the players realise they are not playing their best game and can do better.

Although on paper France has a better line-up, the French have not yet proved anything in this championship.

The playoffs are not a group stage, you would expect a lot more concentration, but the Belgians also have a number of players who have played in particularly high-profile matches in their careers.

If Belgium does not win, they can certainly hold on for 90 minutes without losing.
