Belgium and France have both reached the semi-finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. This is a big match for many reason and all the players and staff will know how close the teams are to glory. While the team's can see the trophy, there is still a long way to go and it will be important for both sides that they can keep their focus on the game at hand. Both teams are filled with talent that we should be able to enjoy a top level game of football.
France have developed well into a good side and the players are starting to click as a unit. The strikers have got a great chemistry and that is making it hard for the opposition to keep clean sheets. In addition to that, Umtiti and Varane have got a good relationship in defense. This is further strengthened by their goalkeeper. It is also important to note the form of Paul Pogba. The Manchester United superstar is playing great football and his impact has been significant. If these players play well, then the French will have a great chance of making it to the final.

On the other side of the coin, Belgium are looking very good. The Red Devils beat Brazil and that victory will have given the side tons of confidence. The likes of Hazard and De Bruyne are playing very well and the addition of Fellaini is looking like a great move. While France will be another big test for Belgium, Roberto Martinez and his team will feel well prepared as they have already been tested by the top teams. This is the best result for Belgium in a World Cup and this generation of players will feel that they can win the competition. This confidence and swagger will be important in a big game such as this one.
All in all, I am going to predict that Belgium wins this match. While this will be a very close contest, I think the Red Devils are looking a little bit sharper than France and that should get them over the line. We are getting a great price wagering on Belgium to qualify so that is the bet which I am going to suggest.
