Belgium head into the game as the favourites but as we know, the favourites do not always win in tournament football. The Belgium’s may arguably be the best team in the Euros but this game will be their first big test of the tournament. I do anticipate that an upset could be on the cards in this game. Portugal may not have been convincing in the group stages but they did have a harder group than Belgium and also know what it takes to navigate to the deep stages of tournament football.
Prediction: Belgium 0-1 Portugal
Anytime Goal Scorers
Belgium- Romelu Lukaku- Lukaku is in terrific form and the Portugal defence will have to make sure that they man-mark him at all times if they want to prevent him from scoring.
Portugal- Cristiano Ronaldo- The 36-year-old is still capable of scoring against any team in the world and he will be Portugal’s main attacking threat against Belgium.
Our Odds And Tips In Detail
With Renato Sanches and Cristiano Ronaldo in form, Portugal will stand a chance. I think an upset could be on the cards here.
