The first Semi-Final is here! The first match is battle between France vs. Belgium after both teams had excellent wins over some of the top South American teams. Both of these go into this game full of confident, full of hope which means one thing, be prepared to see some beautiful tears at full time! As always we are here to preview everything and help you make the best pick for this match.
France vs Belgium (Extra Time/PK Included)
This has the makings to be one of the best matches in the history of the Semi-Finals as we have the powerhouses in France who are consistently up there with the best in the world against the Golden Generation of Belgium as this will probably be the best chance the Red Devils have to win a World Cup. Both of these teams looked good in the Quarter-Finals, but they both needed help from their goalkeepers and a little luck with big missed chances by the other team. Both of these teams have strong midfield and defenders, but the big matchup in this game will be Hazard and Lukaku vs. Mbappe and Griezmann. This game will come down to these two partnerships because of the few chances both teams will get, they need to score each and every one (which Lukaku has had issues with for his club team). Another factor will be the substitutions, both teams have a lot of depth, but Belgiums subs have been so good with Chadli, Fellaini, Dembele and the rest of their backups have come in and been amazing. I see this game being close and one moment will pick which team will win. For France to get a W they need to attack the left side, with Belgium not having Meunier, they will have a weakness there, BUT Belgium can overrun the two center back system that France plays. This game will be exciting, and just frankly a must watch, but if I had to pick, I am leaning towards a Belgium win.
Prediction: 2-1 Belgium
