France vs Belgium Prediction & Betting tips
The FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia is slowly but surely coming to an end. Only a few games are ahead of us. On Tuesday, France and Belgium duel in Saint Petersburg for the first starting place for the final. Both Europeans were considered favorites to win the title before the finals for the 2018 World Cup. The performances of France were particularly pervaded in the group stage. Nevertheless, they secured first place in Group C. The two previous knockout games won the team Tricolore clarified. Les Bleus shine in this World Cup especially with the minimum – every hurdle skipped the French so far, but not really with splendor.
Significantly more impressive is the yield of the Belgians in this tournament – five games, five wins. In addition, the red devils are the most powerful offensive of the entire World Cup. Already 14 hits cheered the Belgians. The duel between the two neighbors will cause a stir. The bookmakers see France in the finals rather than Belgium. For a win by France against Belgium, the betting odds in the 2.5 area are located. In case of a draw and thus an extension you get odds over 3.00. In this article we focus on the category of goalkeeping and place our tip in this area for the 2018 World Cup semi-final against Belgium.
Already at the last European Championship in their own country, the French showed their talent. Coach Didier Deschamps had excellent single players available. Nevertheless, the troupe also shone as a unit and moved into the final in Paris. Only Portugal could stop the Equipe Tricolore and bring the dream of the title to burst in their own country. Two years after this bitter experience, les Bleus returned stronger. Nevertheless, the French did not really shine in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup. Only the bare necessities were provided and thanks to two mandatory victories against Australia and Peru, the Europeans were already set after two rounds for the knockout stages. The B-Elf should score a point against Denmark and thus realize the group victory. In an unspectacular and goalless game this endeavor succeeded the Frenchman. However, in the round of 16, instead of a weaker runners-up, Argentina suddenly faced them.
The South Americans slipped in Extremis on the final day but still among the top 16 teams. The game in Kazan had a lot to offer. 19-year-old Kylian Mbappe appeared for the first time at this World Cup and proved why he is considered a future top star. Within four minutes, the youngster scored twice in the second half and decided the game. Also in the quarterfinals Uruguay was confronted by a team from South America. With a playful superiority and thanks to the dropout of goalkeeper Muslera, the French also skipped this hurdle. In the match in St. Petersburg Griezmann and Co. could bring their home after 2006 again in a final of a FIFA World Cup. After the glorious years around the turn of the millennium, France seems again to be an extremely competitive team. The playful means are owned by the French. The only question is whether they will also prevail against Belgium. After all, the red devils are the first opponent, which is also in top form. France will be betting on betting odds against Belgium for betting on the win – but so close that you could hardly speak of a favorite position for a corresponding World Cup 2018 tip.
The current Belgian national team is currently referred to as the golden generation. The view of the Belgian squad at the final round in Russia confirms this statement. In the last tournament in France, the Belgians did not convince. The performance of the Belgians in Russia on the other hand convinces – five wins is the yield after five games! Roberto Martinez seems to have formed the outstanding single player into a superior unit. Especially the winner mentality, the Spanish coach drummed the red devils. Although the Belgians were already qualified for the round of 16 after two penalties in the group stage against Panama (3: 0) and Tunisia (5: 2), the Belgian B-team has also won the last group match against England. Of course, the B-Elf of Belgium is still equipped with a lot of potential, but the team of England had already stopped the operation.
Also in the knockout stage the Belgians convinced with their team performance. Although the Red Devils had to concede two goals against Japan in the second round so they realized the gravity of the situation, the Belgians nevertheless turned the game around. Also in the early final against Brazil, the Europeans shone with their excellent counter-play. Especially Hazard and De Bruyne are incredibly fast and mercilessly exploit every mistake in the building game of the opponent. Also against the neighbor France has to convince the offensive department. For the last time the Belgians made more effort on the defensive. After all, they act only with a triple chain. Tunisia and Japan scored twice against Europeans, and Brazil were also able to cheer on the Belgians. Certainly, the French will also come at least to a goal. The bookmakers see the two national teams at the 2018 World Cup semi-final against Belgium for betting almost on par. However, slightly increased betting odds imply a slightly lower probability of victory for the Belgians, but for a potential tip we would be wary even with this assessment.
