Betting Tip: @ France to win @ 31/20 with bet365

We expected Brazil to beat Belgium on Friday night. Perhaps that might have happened if the South Americans hadn’t scored an early own goal which changed the complexion of the match.

The Red Devils followed this up with a wonderful goal on the counter-attack although they had to deal with a second half onslaught and the Brazilians could have taken the game into extra-time.

There was plenty to like about Belgium, especially that magical front three of Kevin de Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku, although there will be more pressure on the midfield department, especially with N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba operating as anchors for the opposition.

We’ve gone from being fairly passive about France to being increasingly impressed, with Didier Deschamps’ side having gone through the group stage quietly before wins over Argentina and Uruguay.

Beating these two South American opponents was no mean feat and they now play European cousins, with Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann looking to continue excellent tournaments.

Olivier Giroud will continue as the front man for the French, with Blaise Matuidi likely to be back as part of the attacking trident and the back four have a very settled look about it.

France won’t be gifting Belgium opportunities and dealt with the challenge of Uruguay fairly soundly, with Deschamps having settled on a system which works best for the players.

Let’s not forget that this is a World Cup semi-final, with Belgium having also experienced a large scare when trailing Japan 2-0 at the last sixteen stage and that highlights some potential vulnerability within their ranks.
