As part of the playoffs of the League of Nations, a match will take place between the teams of Belgium and France. The semi-final match of the tournament will take place on October 7 at the Allianz Arena in Turin.
Belgium won Group 2, which included Denmark, England and Iceland. For 6 matches, Roberto Martinez’s team scored 15 points thanks to five victories.
In the last matches of the tournament, the “red devils” won. They beat the Icelanders 2: 1, beat the English 2: 0, and also beat the Danes 4: 2.
In September, the Belgians played 3 matches in the qualifying round for the 2022 World Cup. There they defeated Estonia 5: 2 and the Czech Republic 3: 0, and also beat Belarus 1: 0 away.
This year, the Belgian national team has played 11 matches. In ten meetings, she won and only in one case failed.
The French have a clear decline in the game. They frankly failed at Euro 2020 and played not very convincing matches in the qualifier for the 2022 World Cup.
The French national team in recent matches could not beat Ukraine (1: 1) and Bosnia and Herzegovina (1: 1). True, after that, she was still able to interrupt a 5-match losing streak and defeat Finland with a score of 2: 0.
In the current draw of the League of Nations, the “tricolors” did not lose. They scored 16 points after five wins and draws.
Note that N’Golo Kante will not be able to play, and Olivier Giroud and Kingsley Coman will also miss the match.
Forecast and rate
The French look like favorites on paper. 1xbet mobile app download offer to bet on their victory with the odds of 2.46 . On the victory of the Belgian national team, bookmakers offer to bet with a quote of 3.20 . A draw was posted with the same figure.
Belgium performed much better at the Euro than the French national team. The French played mediocre group stage, especially the match with the Hungarians (1: 1). Well, the failure in 1/8 with Switzerland (3: 4 P) and uncertain September performances in qualifying for the World Cup demonstrateclear decline in the game Le Ble.
Considering that the nominal guests were laconic in recent meetings, we do not believe that they will be able to score a lot against such an opponent. At the same time, Belgium also scored little in recent games with serious opponents. Two goals were her ceiling.
Expect grassroots duel and the total is under 2 in 2.14.
