Tip France - Belgium
France were many pundits fancies to win the 2018 World Cup and they are now only two games away from doing that. They are yet to be defeated in this tournament and have only lost one of their last 17 internationals and none of the last nine winning seven of them. Big tournaments need the best players in form if you are going to win them and that is the case for France at present with M'bappe, Griezmann and Pogba all coming up with the goods at present. Only once have they lost to Belgium in a World Cup game and that was a 1981 qualifier. No wins in the last three games against the Belgians but France are in great form at present and will relish a more open game rather than dominating possession and trying to break down a sturdy defence.
Belgium don't have a sturdy defence that is for sure and have only kept two clean sheets in their last six games. Those were in this tournament against a weak Panama side and England reserves. Both Tunisia and Japan put two past Belgium in this tournament and you wonder just how they are going to keep France at bay. Belgium, just like their opponents, have plenty of star players and the likes of Lukaku, Eden Hazard and De Bruyne can change games. This should be a great semi-final and hard to call with so many game-changing players. Go for over 2.5 goals to be scored int he match.
Key points France - Belgium
Four out of five Belgium games in this tournament have had over 2.5 goals scored in them.
There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 12 of the last 15 Belgium matches.
Three of the last five France games in the World Cup finals have had over 2.5 goals scored in them.
Conclusion France - Belgium
This looks like being a game that should have plenty of goals scored in it. Belgium score plenty of goals but don't have the best of defences and that could be exposed even more in this match by France. The French team have great experience in going deep into tournaments and only two years ago reached the final of Euro 2016. It's hard to pick a winner between these two sides as even though Belgium concede regularly, they also score a lot. Go for over 2.5 goals to be scored in this match.
