France vs Belgium Match Preview
France handled convincingly to win Group C with 7 points from two wins and one draw. Where in the group matches, they beat Australia (2: 1), Peru (1: 0) and calculated draw with Denmark (0: 0).
After the group stage at eight finals, Les Bleus met the team of Messi, Argentina, where in a show match and a goal trhiler Les Blues managed to come out as the final winner of the 4: 3 game. There was a lot of turnarounds in that match, but D. Deschamps players showed that they did not break easily and after taking their first goal at 13′ from penalty that Greizmann sored without problem, Argentina managed to equalize to the end of halftime, then with an early goal in the second part led with 2: 1.
But it did not take long, nine minutes later, Pavard equalized and the young star, Mbappe, recorded two goals in his name, which secured the victory for France 4: 3 with Aguero’s 90th goal that did not help Sampioli and his team.
In last round France win with two to zero against a team that have been recorded a 3 clean sheets in four World Cup matches and six out of seven clean sheets and 7 wins in last seven games – Uruguay.
But Belgium are the World Cup wonder somehow, lots of people expect huge performance from them. With 14 goals scored till now and a run of 24 games without a single lose (19W,5D) they look like favourites here.
Like their opponents, The Red Devils have won their Group G in front of England. After three wins, they’ve met Japan in the eight finals and for most football fans that were a sure win for Belgium.
Yes, that was a win. But how sure was till the 90′, you can ask Nacer Chadli. In this game, Roberto Martinez’s super subtitles make an absolute turn around in a game where they have been two goals down with 38′ to be played. First on the scoresheet came J. Vertonghen 69′, the second was one of the super Roberto subs, M. Fellaini 74′ and the third came absolutely out of nowhere the super Nacer Chadli 90′ from very quick counter attack.
Yes, that was good, but in the last round, they meet Selecao. And after in the game before Red Devils have been counted like a total favourite now they have become something like an outsider.
But like we see they are now at the semis against France after a win over Brazil with 2:1.
France vs Belgium Head-to-head
These two nations have met each other 19 times and in that period (1966 to 2015) Les Bleus have eight wins, six draws and five losses.
- If we looking for theirs World Cups clashes, we can found two. First one is back to 1938 where France win with 3:1 and Les Bleus are hosts at this tournament.
- The second is 1986 in Mexico where France win again, but this time after Extra-time. The final outcome is 4:3 for Les Bleus and they’ve finished third, that was decided in this match because they played for the third and fourth place.

France vs Belgium Prediction
Both sides hold some of the best attacking stars players at world football. Should we expect goals here, absolutely?
Frace have scored average 1.8 goals per match till now at World Cup, while Belgium reaches the bigger number here with 2.8 average goals scored per match. For me that’s point in this directions, goals are absolutely guaranteed here and Over 2.5 Match Goals is banker bet for France vs Belgium prediction and for such market we offer Betfair.
For a final winner is a little risky for some people, but Belgium are in a better mood for me and I will trust them. Since Martinez takes the charge at Belgium they are unbeaten and Red Devils have won all of their World Cup matches till now, France have shown some weakness versus Argentina attacking line and Belgium are not very different.
