01/07: France vs Belgium – Euro 2024

Betting Predictions

The Euro 2024 last-16 matches feature a reunion of 2018 World Cup semifinal rivals, France and Belgium, who will face off in Düsseldorf on Monday night.

Due to bad final-day draws, neither country could demonstrate their true potential throughout the group stage, and they were both forced to unexpectedly finish in second place. France stumbled in Group D, winning just once to place second behind Austria, but conceding just one goal in three games—a penalty against Poland.  But the Belgians struggled in a group that many had predicted they would easily win, winning only one of their three games against Slovakia, Romania, and Ukraine.


Belgium’s pre-First World War dominance considerably skews the record between these two countries. The Red Devils have lost to France in the 2018 World Cup semifinals and have only triumphed in two of their previous 13 encounters since 1981. In Germany, France has only let up one goal. In Germany, Belgium has only let up one goal. Outright wins have occurred in all six of these clubs’ meetings.

Team News

Despite breaking his nose in their Euro 2024 opening match, Kylian Mbappe was able to start against Poland and will need to wear a face mask for the remainder of the competition.

Bradley Barcola replaced Antoine Griezmann in the French starting lineup, and while the teenage winger displayed moments of brilliance, he did not perform well enough to secure his spot in the starting lineup. In an attempt to take Mbappe out wide, Olivier Giroud and Marcus Thuram will also battle for the attacking nod.

Adrien Rabiot should play in midfield because Deschamps is unlikely to agree to a major modification of his tried-and-true setup.

Domenico Tedesco has had difficulty with the age-old Belgian conundrum of integrating their abundance of offensive talents into a cohesive system.

After serving a suspension, Sevilla’s Dodi Lukebakio is returning to provide a winger alternative to Leandro Trossard and Jeremy Doku, while Lois Openda might finally be relied upon to start in lieu of Romelu Lukaku, who has been struggling.

Probable Line-Up

France XI:

Maignan; Kounde, Saliba, Upamecano, Hernandez; Kante, Tchouameni; Dembele, Griezmann, Barcola; Mbappe

Belgium XI:  

Casteels; Castagne, Faes, Vertonghen, Theate; Tielemans, Onana; Doku, De Bruyne, Carrasco; Lukaku


Tip: France to Win


Neither of these teams looks good but France has looked better than Belgium. Both sides might suit setting up to attack with pace on the counter, which could make for a bit of a chess game. While both managers possess an enviable amount of attacking firepower, neither offense has clicked into gear at the Euros, giving rise to a dull affair where defenses should come out on top for the most part.

Tip: Under 2.5 Goals


France has only conceded one goal across their three games so far, while Belgium’s defense has also only been breached once. The Red Devils’ attack has also misfired, as Romelu Lukaku has seen three efforts ruled out for offside and they have also managed just two goals, with both of those coming against Romania. Before the tournament kicked off, this was the kind of fixture that would perhaps have promised entertainment, but based on the six games involving one of these sides so far, the best bet looks to be under 2.5 goals.
