Belgium vs Italy: Predictions and Betting Tips

20:00, Jul 02 2021
Belgium vs Italy predictions for this UEFA EURO 2020 clash on Friday at Allianz Arena. Belgians and Italians meet in the quarter-finals in one of the most exciting matches of the Euro so far, will Belgian talent or Italy’s collective play win out?. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Belgium

The Belgians reach the quarter-finals after beating reigning champions Portugal 1-0 in the Round of 16. The Belgians were able to withstand the Portuguese pressure throughout the second half, though they struggled in attack, particularly Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgians are also facing the worrying prospect of playing the rest of their matches this Euros without two of their best players as both Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard may have to sit out with injuries.

In the last Euros, the two countries met in the group stage and on that occasion the Italians won the match.

Italy

Italy come into this match after eliminating Austria in the Round of 16 with a scoreline of 2-1 after extra time. After playing spectacularly in the group stage, Italy lacked creativity in their latest match and were much weaker defensively.

Italy’s chances of winning this upcoming bout are dependent on the strength of their defence, as Belgium’s offensive play poses a big threat. Only once Italy have established a strong defensive line will they be able to take the advantage and counter-attack.

Key Stats

  • 13 consecutive matches without losing for Belgium, comprising 11 wins and two draws
  • Belgium have only conceded one goal in their last five games
  • 31 consecutive matches without losing for Italy
  • After 11 consecutive matches without conceding goals, Italy conceded a goal against Austria in their last match

Belgium vs Italy Predictions

This match may well decide who ultimately lifts the title as the two strongest teams in Europe face off. Indeed, the Italians are probably the best team at defending whilst the Belgians are one of the best attacking teams. On this occasion we see Italy as the slight favourites slightly because the Belgians, so far, have failed to reach their top level and they may struggle with the absences of Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard.

In any match involving Italy, you can expect a low-scoring game that is won by the narrowest of margins and this match appears to be no different.
