France v Belgium Odds

The 2018 World Cup will be heading back to Europe this summer but we don't know to which country just yet.

France and Belgium are the first two to lock horns for a place in the Final and this is going to be a tough one to call. The French start the game as the favourites as the "big brother" of this duo of countries, but Belgium are right in the middle of their golden generation and are clearly quietly confident going into the biggest game in their history.

France impressed as they pushed their way past Uruguay in the last eight but it was Belgium who produced the performance of the round.

The Red Devils swept Brazil aside in clinical circumstances with the likes of Hazard and De Bruyne running the show on Friday night.

That result will have given them the world of confidence, which they will need as they face an even tougher test against France.

Paddy Power have France as the narrow favourites to win this semi-final in normal time at 6/4, with Belgium 2/1 punts to win this one and reach their first ever World Cup Final at the weekend.

Freescoring Belgium Can Cause Upset

France have the strongest squad at this World Cup but at periods in Russia they have struggled to find top gear.

Didier Deschamps never gives the impression he quite knows his best team and that might finally catch up him in the semi-finals.

Belgium have been free scoring throughout the tournament with 14 goals from their five matches so far thanks to Lukaku, Hazard and De Bruyne and their attacking qualities. That trio is more than capable of taking France apart and both teams to score is certainly a no brainer at 20/23 with Ladbrokes as a nice little side bet.

France are packed with talent but on balance it is Belgium who are the more settled team and that could be the difference. A small country ready to make the ultimate step, Belgium should be backed at 2/1 with Paddy Power to win this semi-final outright.
