France – Belgium Predictions and Preview

**The clash between France and Belgium at Euro 2024**

  • In the Round of 16 of the Euro 2024 tournament, France and Belgium will face off on Monday at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Düsseldorf. This match will determine who advances to the quarterfinals, with both teams being near-neighbors.
  • France and Belgium have a rich history of international matches, with France having faced the Belgian team 36 times more than any other opponent. This match will be the 76th time the two nations have played against each other, and France has dominated in recent years.
  • Under the leadership of Didier Deschamps, France has shown impressive form in recent matches against Belgium. They have lost only once in the last six matches against the Belgian team, with three victories and two draws. This includes a 5-0 victory in the 1984 UEFA European Championship, which marked France’s first title in the competition.
  • However, France needs to improve their performance from the group stage, where they recorded two clean sheets but failed to score in open play, despite having world-class attacking players.
  • Belgium also struggled during the group stage, finishing second in Group E. They suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Slovakia in their opening match, which could have been fatal if not for their quick response and subsequent 2-0 victory over Romania. However, they disappointed again in their final match, drawing 0-0 with Ukraine, becoming the first group in Euros history to finish on four points.
  • Despite this, the overall form of the Belgian team could point towards their potential success in this clash. They have now lost just one of their last 18 international matches, with 12 of those outings seeing them keep a clean sheet. Defensive stability could be key to their progress again, but after conceding seven goals in their last three matches against France, that could prove challenging.
  • Players to watch in this match include Antoine Griezmann for France and Romelu Lukaku for Belgium. Griezmann has scored seven goals in 14 Euro matches, five of which have come in the knockout rounds. Lukaku, despite recording more shots on target than any other player in the group stage, failed to score a goal. However, his prior tally of 11 goals in 25 major tournament appearances suggests that he could change his luck here.
  • Hot stat: Only the Netherlands and Slovakia (both with two) received fewer yellow cards than France (three) during the Euro 2024 group stage.
