France vs Belgium Semifinal Preview: France saw off the challenge from Uruguay in the quarterfinal stage and they looked on a different level beating them 2-0 in what was a very comprehensive win and French side is hitting the right notes at just about right time in the world cup. They take on highly rated Belgium side who defeated Brazil 2-1 in the quarterfinals.
France vs Belgium is widely billed as the final before final as the winner of this game will be odds on favourite to win the trophy itself. Both teams are undefeated in the tournament so far and it should be a cracking game for the neutrals to say the least.
Team News & Lineups: France do not have any major injury worries and Didier Deschamps is likely to name the same starting lineup with only Blaise Matuidi coming in for Corentin Tolisso in the midfield. Matuidi missed the win against Uruguay through suspension.
Match Predictions: This one is so difficult to predict as both France and Belgium starting lineups are as good as the each other. However France’s overall squad is on different level and that is where I think this game will be won and lost. I see a competitive 90 minutes and it will be towards the tail end of the game which managers make changes that we will see mistakes or some moment of Brilliance to win the game. I am going with an France win in this one.
