Belgium and Italy will face each other in the EURO 2020 quarter-finals on Friday evening. Both teams enjoy the excellent form and want to keep up where they left off.
Belgium vs Italy Match Preview & Team News
The Red Devils have a perfect record in this tournament, as they celebrated in all four matches. Their group stage campaign went very smoothly, except for the game against Denmark when they needed to come from behind. Roberto Martinez’s side already had a tough challenge in the eighth-finals, but they managed to remain in the competition. Romelu Lukaku and the lads eliminated the defending champions, Portugal, from EURO 2020 thanks to Thorgan Hazard’s goal. However, Portugal dominated the second half, and Belgium was lucky not to go into the extra time. The Red Devils might have severe selection troubles since Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne are doubtful for this match. Nevertheless, Roberto Martinez hopes that one of Belgium’s key players could be ready to step up and help. Belgium booked five straight victories and wants to continue that run.
Italy’s streak is even better since Azzurri celebrated 12 wins in a row. Roberto Mancini’s side was dominant in the group stage, as they secured the top spot without conceding. Although they didn’t have a very challenging opponent in the eighth-finals, Italy went into the extra time against Austria. Ciro Immobile and the lads failed to unlock the opponent’s goal in 90 minutes, but they scored twice in the additional 30 for a 2:1 victory. Italy needs to improve its game in the middle of the park if they want to be more dangerous for the rival’s net. This time, the opponent is much more challenging, and Azzurri should be more creative. Italy hasn’t lost 31 games in a row, and they hope to extend this stunning streak even more.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
It is going to be a very tight clash, and it can go either way. However, we see Italy here as a slight favorite, and Azzurri might secure a vital victory in the regulation time of the match.
Goals Market Prediction
Both sides have been pretty hard to crack in the back recently. Belgium conceded only once in the last five games, while Italy kept 11 consecutive clean sheets before conceding against Austria. We don’t expect to see too many goals here, and the clash should stay under a 2.5 margin.
