Welcome to our Belgium vs Italy betting tips, prediction and odds analysis ahead of their Euro 2020 quarter-final encounter at the Allianz Arena on Friday.

Though Belgium enter the game as favourites and on the back of a win against Portugal, they struggled in the second half against the Euro 2016 champions. They will face a tougher test against Italy. In the end I expect Roberto Mancini’s side to frustrate them and win 1-0 in what will be a tough and close encounter.
Prediction: Belgium 0-1 Italy
Anytime Goal Scorers
Belgium- Romelu Lukaku- Arguably one of the best strikers in the world at the moment, Lukaku’s form in front of goal will be vital in determing whether Belgium can win this game.
Italy- Federico Chiesa- Chiesa showed tremendous composure to notch the winner for his side against Austria. He will again need to be very composed and patient if Italy are to eliminate one of the pre-tournament favourites.
Our Odds And Tips In Detail
It will be a tough game but in the end, Italy have shown slightly more mental strength. Their mental strength should be sufficient to carry them over the line in this game which promises to be one of the games of the tournament.
