Prediction: Finland vs Belgium

Prediction: Match to end in 1-1 draw

Best Odds: 17/2

Bookmaker: Betfair

Finland and Belgium will face each other in their final Euro 2020 Group B game on Monday. The match is scheduled to kick off at 8pm UK time and will be held at the Gazprom Arena in Saint Petersburg.

Finland

Finland are third in Group B with three points from two matches. Markku Kanerva’s side kicked off their Euro 2020 campaign with a 1-0 win against Denmark before going down 1-0 to Russia.

Kanerva’s team will likely go through if they pick up all three pints against Belgium. Finland have a goal difference of 0, while Russia are on -2. 

Team News:

Teemu Pukki is likely to lead the line for Finland. Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara should also start.

Belgium

Belgium are one of the best teams at the European Championship, and there is no wonder that they have started the competition on fire. Roberto Martinez’s side have won both of their Group B games and have progressed to the last-16 stage.

Martinez’s side kicked off their Euro 2020 campaign with a 3-0 defeat of Russia before getting the better of Denmark 2-1.

Team News:

Belgium manager Martinez is likely to make a few changes to his team and rest some of his key players. Kevin De Bruyne is likely to start to build up his fitness, and so should Eden Hazard.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Belgium are winless in their last seven games against Finland.
  • Finland have registered just two shots on target so far at Euro 2020.
  • Belgium have won their final group game at each of their last four major tournaments.
  • None of the last five matches between Finland and Belgium have produced more than two goals.
  • Belgium have suffered just once in their last 25 matches.

Conclusion

Finland are a decent side, but Belgium are strong even if without their best players in the starting lineup. A draw is the most likely outcome.

Prediction: Match to end in 1-1 draw

Best Odds: 17/2
