Belgium vs Portugal: Predictions and Betting Tips
The Belgians reach the Round of 16 after finishing top of their group with a clean sweep of wins. They have scored seven goals and conceded just one.
The attacking potential of the Belgians is incredible and they have devastated their opponents without even hitting their top gear. With players like Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, Youri Tielemans, Dries Mertens and Roemlu Lukaku, it is unsurprising how easily the team are able to create goal-scoring chances.
Belgium has not won an official match against Portugal since 1989.
Portugal come here after finishing third in their group and being one of the best third-placed teams among all the groups, after one win, one draw and one defeat. They have scored seven goals and conceded six goals.
The main problem for the Portuguese is their defensive line, as it has been shown that against the big teams they are unable to keep the ball away from the goal. There are no problems in attack, however, and for Cristiano Ronaldo, who is already the top scorer in the Euros, it’s business as usual.
- 12 consecutive matches without losing for Belgium, comprising ten wins and two draws
- Belgium have only conceded two goals in their last five games
- Two wins, two draws and one defeat for Portugal in their last five games
- Three of Portual’s last five games have ended with over 3.5 total match goals
Belgium vs Portugal Predictions
This match features, potentially, the two most aggressive teams in the world right now. Despite their strength in attack, Portuguese will likely struggle against such a powerful team who are constantly moving the ball around and we think this might cost Portugal their place in the tournament.
The matches so far for both teams have been full of goals and goal-chances. We expect this match to be no different and predict there will be more than 2.5 total goals.
