France vs Belgium Betting Tips: FRANCE TO WIN

While many pegged them as hot contenders for Euro success before the tournament, Didier Deschamps' squad put forth a very underwhelming display in the group stage, arduously collecting five points from three matches to finish as Group D's runners-up.

Securing a solitary win over Austria in their opener, aided by Wober's own goal, was followed by a goalless draw against the Netherlands before Kylian Mbappe's historic first Euro goal proved futile as his France side was held to a 1-1 stalemate by Poland.

Improving creativity and clinical finishing in the final third is vitally important for the Gaelic Roosters to strengthen their quest to lift the Euro trophy for a third time, given that it's unbelievable Mbappe and co are still waiting for their first goal from open play in the tournament.

On the positive side, France's defensive wall has proven remarkably solid and reliable of late, with Lewandowski's 12-yard strike in the final Group D match marking the only breach in their previous five international outings.

That stat surely won't be music to the ears of the Belgians, who looked blunt in front of goal, culminating in being absent from the scoresheet in two out of three group-stage matches, while the unfortunate Romelu Lukaku saw three goals chalked off by VAR thus far.

Despite being placed in a not-so-challenging group, Die Roten Teufel struggled to progress to the round of sixteen, starting with a shocking 0-1 loss at the hands of Slovakia, before routinely seeing off Romania 2-0 and playing to a goalless draw against Ukraine.

Heading into the heavyweight clash, the Belgians could take encouragament from the fact they've only been on the wrong side of the scoreline once in their last 18 internationals (W11 D6), and can also boast of having recorded four shutouts in their last five.

Despite their impressive stats, there are ominous signs that Belgia's record might be tarnished on Monday, as the last two match-ups with France have ended poorly for Tedesco's men, who suffered a 0-1 defeat in the 2018 World Cup semi-finals before being bested in a five-goal thriller in the 2021 Nations League final-four.

Neither attacking line has sparkled thus far, suggesting that a low-scoring affair could be on the cards, where a single goal might prove to be the decisive factor between these two sides. Having recently discovered the winning formula against the Belgians, we hope that the Gaelic Roosters can once again prove superior and continue their march towards the Euro trophy.

France team news

Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman left the French camp to attend the birth of his fourth child in Sweden, but he might return in time for his team's crucial last-16 clash with Belgium at Euro 2024.

Star player Kylian Mbappe, who is soon to become a new Real Madrid player, scored his first-ever goal at the European Championship in the 1-1 draw against Poland. He will continue the tournament wearing a protective face mask after suffering a broken nose against Austria in matchday one.

Right winger Dodi Lukebakio will once again feature on Tedesco's roster for the last-16 clash against France after serving a one-match suspension for accumulation of cards, while the unlucky Romelu Lukaku continues to lead the frontline.
