France takes on the visitors Belgium at “Saint-Petersburg Stadium” in the first semi-final clash of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. The match will be played in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday, July 10th.
The French come up to the semi-final battle with nine-game unbeaten series. Since the 27th of March Didier Deschamps’ team has earned seven victories and two draws. On the Russian fields France has got 0:0 draw against Denmark as well as broke Australia 2:1 and Peru 1:0 at the group stage while in the Play Offs “Les Bleus” celebrated a spectacular 4:3 triumph over Argentina and then predictably knocked out another South American side - Uruguay with 2:0 scoreline in the quarter-final, having shown rock-solid defense. Didier Deschamps’ team demonstrates effective and fascinating performance in attack while its defense is also doing alright, except for the tackle against Lionel Messi and his teammates.

In its turn, Belgium has not failed across impressive 24 encounters in a row, having got 19 victories and five draws in them. Roberto Martinez’s side has won all five clashes within the current FIFA Mundial with 14:5 aggregated score. In the Play Offs “Les Diables Rouges” produces different kind of football in two battles played. The team has attacked all game long against Japan as it was 0:2 behind, but managed to succeed with 3:2 scoreline on the last seconds of the fight. On the contrary, in the quarter-final clash against Brazil “Les Diables Rouges” sat in defense all the encounter as they were leading 2:0 during the tackle and celebrated the eventual 2:1 triumph.
France and Belgium meet quite often at the football pitch. Since 2011 the teams have conducted three head-to-heads which resulted in two 0:0 draws in 2011 and 2013 together with 4:3 victory of the Belgians on the 7th of June 2015. Clearly, the forthcoming clash will be extremely tough and equal, thus, it’s very difficult to define the favourite. I believe that not many goals will be scored on Tuesday evening.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.0 scored goals.
