France vs Belgium Preview, Prediction, H2H Record, Livestream: UEFA Nations League Semi Finals 2021/22
The French against the Belgians is truly the clash of the titans in European football. Alley Sport brings France vs Belgium Preview and the insights to this semifinal.
France and Belgium had interesting journeys to reach the semi finals of the UEFA Nations League. Belgium overcame the likes of the English, Denmark and Iceland to reach the semis with just 1 loss out of the 6 games, winning the other 5. France too overcame a difficult group, facing Portugal, Croatia and Sweden, and winning the group unbeaten, with just a draw making them lose points. These sides deserve to be in the semi finals, with expectations of a grand spectacle on the cards.
France vs Belgium Preview
Belgium against France is truly a spectacle for the neutrals, as two of the best European sides clash for a piece of silverware, ahead of the much awaited 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The Belgian Red Devil’s last game against Belarus, where they managed a 1-0 victory, breezing through the qualifying campaign. France, too, have been dominant in their World Cup qualifier campaigns, but draws against minnows like Bosnia show a trouble in paradise for the French, especially with a lot of expectations pinned on the famed Benzema-Griezmann-Mbappe trio.
France vs Belgium Preview: Prediction
Both Belgium and France are strong teams and have a load of talented players in their squad. With the game at a neutral venue, home support counts for nought. It will be two top teams going head-to-head on the day, and we can see it lasting beyond 90 minutes. With France more experienced in extra-time and penalties, we see Les Blues getting a win here. In my prediction, France are going to win the game 2-1 in the extra time, to bounce back from their disappointing Euros campaign.
France vs Belgium Preview: H2H Record
In an overall record, Belgium, surprisingly lead the stats with 30 wins over the French, with the Les Bleus managing 25 wins against the Belgians. The match has ended with spoils being shared on 19 occasions. The meeting in the semifinals would be special one, as both the sides last met each in the semi finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup at Saint Petersburg, where the French ran out 1-0 winners, courtesy of a Samuel Umtiti goal. Belgians would be gunning for revenge as they aim for silverware with their golden generation.
