Belgium vs. Austria
In a highly anticipated match, Belgium and Austria, the two undefeated teams in Group F, will clash at Stade Roi Baudouin in Brussels on Saturday.
Unfortunately, Belgium will be without Kevin De Bruyne, who suffered a hamstring tear and will not be part of the Red Devils’ lineup. On the other hand, Austria, led by captain David Alaba, will also miss some key players, including midfielder Marcel Sabitzer, due to injuries.
It’s worth noting that Domenico Tedesco’s starting lineup for Austria might have a youthful appearance, with eight players aged 23 or younger. The team has undergone a transition phase, gradually phasing out the older generation of players.
Both teams have been performing well recently, with Austria securing victories in their last four matches. Fans can expect an exciting encounter as these two teams compete to maintain their unbeaten streaks in the group stage.
Despite Belgium’s strong reputation, they have encountered difficulties in their recent home games, failing to win four out of their last nine matches. Considering this, their odds in the betting market may be overestimated. Additionally, the Belgian team will be without their influential captain, Kevin De Bruyne, due to injury.
On the other hand, Austria comes into the match with a renewed sense of energy and confidence, having secured victories in their last four consecutive games. Their recent form suggests they pose a significant threat to Belgium’s dominance.
Given these factors, it would be wise not to underestimate Austria’s chances and to consider them as a formidable opponent for Belgium in this upcoming match.

Portugal vs. Bosnia
Portugal has made a strong comeback since their disappointing exit from the World Cup, showcasing their dominance with two impressive victories over Lichtenstein and Luxembourg. Scoring a total of 10 goals across both matches, Portugal is expected to continue their high-scoring form when they face Bosnia-Herzegovina in their upcoming game.
While Bosnia-Herzegovina started their qualifying campaign with a convincing 3-0 win against Iceland, they faced defeat in their subsequent match against Slovakia, losing 2-0 on the road.
Considering Portugal’s recent performances, their last four games have witnessed a total of 18 goals.
