Odds: 7/5 @ Bet 365

Two of Europe’s heavyweights meet in Saint Petersburg as France and Belgium go head to head for a place in the World Cup final.

Starting with Didier Deschamps’ France side, although they may have started this summers World Cup finals slowly, the 2016 European finalists have improved with each round and after putting two past a Uruguay side who had only conceded one in their last eight, Les Bleus find their confidence at a high. While France have scored six in their last two and have kept three clean sheets in their last four, The Bleus did ship three against Argentina and backing both teams to score and over 2.5 goals seems like the most logical bet here. One man to watch for France is 19-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe, the PSG man already has three in the tournament.

As for Roberto Martinez’s side, after going 2-0 down to Japan with 15 minuets to go, little could see Belgium reaching the semi-finals. However, after scoring three late goals to book a faceoff against pre-tournament favorites Brazil, The Reds Devils are flying high. Despite being the underdogs last week, Belgium put on a dominant display and led by Man of the Match Eden Hazard, The Reds picked up a 2-1 win. One man to watch is 25-year-old Romelu Lukaku, the Manchester United forward has been directly involved in 20 goals in his last 13 appearances for Belgium, scoring 17 and assisting three.
