The Belgium vs Portugal match will the 4th game in the knockout rounds in Euro 2020. This match is scheduled to take place on June 27 at 2100 hrs Central European Summer Time at the Estadio de La Cartuja stadium in Seville, Spain.

Belgium Form, Predicted line up and Tactics

Belgium qualified for EURO 2020 in style by winning each of their 10 matches and conceding just 3 goals, the fewest conceded by any team in qualifying, except for Turkey, which also conceded just 3 goals.

Roberto Martinez has been the head coach of the Belgian National Team since 2016. Under Martinez, Belgium finished 3rd at the World Cup in 201 and have seen their longest run as number 1 by FIFA since September 2018.

Belgium has continued this fine form by winning all of its group stage games. Belgium are tied with Italy in the second spot for the most number of goals scored during the group stage.

Belgium also had 14 attempts on goal which is the 5th highest number of attempts on goals during the group stage of Euro 2020.

The Belgian team is well organized and well drilled. Belgium tends to play with a 3-4-3 formation that is more like a 3-2-4-1 in attack. Belgium likes to build up the game patiently, with one of the central defenders even rushing forward with the ball to help the game move forward.

Unsurprisingly, with a formation like this three centre-backs are used, one of which is a more ball-playing centre-back.

 The wing backs are often very hard at work. One of them, usually the left wing, is more of an attacking fullback and more of a wide midfielder. This position is usually taken by Nacer Chadli or Thorgan Hazard, both of whom play on the left.

The other fullback is more of a defensive fullback. This position is usually filled by Timothy Castagne or Thomas Meunier.

This may leave a gap on the left for opposition teams to exploit, but Belgium has two talented defensive midfielders to counter this threat.

On to the midfield. Belgium plays a fairly defensive midfield consisting of 2 defensive midfielders who create opportunities from behind and help the central defenders. These positions are filled by Axel Witsel and Youri Tielemans or Yannick Carrasco.

The front three is where the magic happens for Belgium. Romelu Lukaku is the main striker and goalkeeper. He is strong and can fight for long balls and hold them for the rest of his teammates to attack him.

He is flanked by arguably one of the best attacking midfielders in the world, Kevin De Bruyne on the right, and one of the best attacking wingers in the world, Eden Hazard. Hazard tends to float in the penalty area, while De Bruyne is more of the creative force.

Hazard has not played many recent appearances for Belgium and many other talented strikers have started in his place, including Leandro Trossard, Michy Batshuayi and 19-year-old Jérémy Doku.

During the group stage in Euro 2020 Yannick Carrasco started in place of Eden Hazard for the first 2 games.

At the age of 34, Dries Mertens also starts a few matches and his experience helps to train younger attackers such as Doku.

How will Belgium Will Play Against Portugal

Belgium like to build up patiently from the back, Vertoghen and Alderweireld will drift a bit wide, Denayer will stay central while the wingbacks Thorgan Hazard and Meunier will push high, almost touching the edge of the field.

Belgium has a preference for attacking from the left. With Vertonghen forming a triangle with Thorgan Hazard and the left forward. The Midfielder (Dendoncker in this case) will try to joing this triangle if these players are outnumbered.  

They will then look to either release Thorgan Hazard out wide or make a forward pass for the left sided forward into the box.

Portugal will try to cover all passing options on this side. In this case, Belgium will pass backward and switch play to the other side as you can see in the picture below

If the opposition defence is not quick enough to keep up with Belgium’s transition on the right this is what essentially happens…

De Bruyne drops a little deeper and looks to free Meunier quickly on the right who in turn tries to whip a cross into the box.
Meanwhile Thorgan Hazard makes a diagonal run into the box especially if Meunier breaks free on the right.
Dendoncker and Tielemans try to win the ball in this advanced positions when the defence tries to make clearances.
Tielemans is also a threat just outside the box because he is great at shooting from distance.

If De Bruyne can’t free Meunier, he plays quick passes with either him on the right or the players around him on the left and runs into the box to receive and either score or continue the move.

De Bruyne can also choose to shoot from distance or create through balls for the attackers on his left.

During an attack the 3 defenders also push high and then tuck inside when the attack is progressing.

Keep in mind that Belgium has other ways to attack such as hitting teams on the counter right from the middle. Something they could easily do with Portugal as their midfielders try to press Belgium which might leave spaces for Belgium to exploit for players to make line breaking passes into Portugal’s side of the field.

However, Belgium does have a weakness, one of which we mentioned earlier that they are vulnerable to counter attacks when the wide wingbacks move forward and don’t track back.

Portugal could whip in a long ball over Vertonghen and Alderweireld, both of whom are beginning to lose their pace.

How will Belgium Line up against Portugal

We expect Hazard to be given a start. If he doesn’t seem to perform well he might be taken off later and Carrasco will take his place. De Bryune was eased into the squad after a face injury he suffered during the champions league final.

Castagne is out injured so Meunier will definitely start.

3-4-3

Portugal Form, Predicted line up and Tactics

Portugal had been in fine form before their opening game in Euro 2020.  They built on this form with their 3-0 thrashing of Hungary after losing 4-2 to Germany. The game against Germany highlighted a key weakness in Portugal’s tactics, their defensive discipline.

Germany would stretch the play wide which would put a lot of pressure on portugal backline. The midfielders would not track back quick enough which allowed Germany’s wide men to have the freedom to whip in crosses as they defenders were focused on marking the players inside the box.

Portugal seemed to have learned from this mistake with attackers falling back and trying to close the gap on the wings.

However, Portugal was still unsuccessful at defending well as a team. When they would press, they could not quickly close the gap that the pressing player would leave which allowed France to make key passess.

Portugal conceded 6 goals during these matches. Of all the teams that qualified for the round of 16 Portugal has conceded the most number of goals.

That being said, Portugal created a lot of chances. Portugal’s xG (a statistical measure of potential goals) during the game was 2.46 compared to France’s 1.73.

Portugal are tied with Belgium and Italy in the 2nd spot for the most goals scored during the group stage in Euro 2020.

But defensive frailties aside, let’s see how Portugal could play against Belgium.

How will Portugal play against Belgium

Usually Portugal play a 4-2-3-1 with 2 holding midfielders and 3 attacking mdifielders and 1 forward.

Portugal will try to employ the same tactics they used against France. This means that they would play with an extra man in midfield in a 4-3-3 formation which looks like 4-5-1 when Portugal don’t have the ball and are defending.

Portugal would be looking to hit Belgium on the counter and will do their best to protect themselves from attacks from wide areas.

The defence is likely to remain unchanged unless Semedo picks up an injury because he was taken off as a precaution after falling down on the pitch with what looked like muscle cramps.

Guerrero will be a real threat for Belgium from the left but he would be working very hard to fall back and prevent counter attacks from Belgium.

Joao Moutinho and Renato Sanches started just ahead of Danilo. Danilo was the defensive midfielder while these two were more box to box. Renato Sanches had an excellent game against France and he was very energetic in pushing forward as well as falling back and fighting for the ball.

Bruno Fernandes did not start the game in order to accommodate the extra man in midfield. He came on in Bernardo Silva’s place in the second half.

Ronaldo will drop deeper to collect the ball and to wait for counter attacking moves. Portugal will try to stay compact with Danilo Pereira playing just ahead of the defence. Jota and Bernardo Silva will prefer to cut inside and join Ronaldo, allowing room for Guerreiro and Semedo to bomb forward from the wide .

Renato sancho will be essential in distributing the ball and starting attacking moves. He could either move forward, or create overlapping runs for Guerreriro.

Portugal predicted line up against Belgium

We expect the line up to be unchanged. Bruno Fernandes hasn’t been able to replicate the amazing form he had at club level with Manchester United and he would probably be dropped in favor of Renato Sanches.

4-3-3

Belgium vs Portugal Euro 2021 Predictions

In the past 5 games between these two teams, Portugal won 3 games and 2 games ended up in a draw.
However, you should keep in mind that the last 5 games between these two teams was played in 2018,2016,2007,2007 and 2000.

A lot can change in a span of even 2 years so we should ignore these statistics while predicting the outcome of this game.

We will be basing our prediction for Belgium vs Portugal on the following criteria:

The tactics of each teamThe weaknesses and strengths of each teamAnalyzing how each team could potentially win

Here are the predictions we have for Belgium vs Portugal  based on these criterias:

Belgium will push very high up the pitch while Portugal will try to stay compact. Belgium will try to build patiently like we mentioned before and try to draw Portugese players out of position and then exploit that space that gets left behind.
Portugal will expect Belgium to do exactly that and they will tweak their tactics to press high as a team and get better at using the Catenaccio. Catenaccio is a defensive tactic  that involves tight man marking and the use of an additional defensive player known as ‘sweeper’ or ‘libero’ (in Italian) to form a double line of defense.

The midfielder’s role will be to shield the defense and occasionally to take the ball forward by picking up the balls from the sweeper.
In Portugal’s case, that “sweeper” would be Danilo Pereiera.

Although Portugal seemed to have improved defensively in their final group stage game against France after losing against Germany, there were many instances where they were unable to press as a team. One player would break free and the rest of his team mates were not quick enough to cover that space allowing France to use that space to make line breaking passes.
Based on these facts, one of two things can happen. The first possibility is that Portugal will get better at fixing this problem or these problems will keep showing up.
Assuming Portugal fix this problem, they will be lethal while counter attacking and nullifying Belgium. Portugal will try to attack from wide especially with Guerrero on counter attacks.
We do expect Portugal to be better defensively but we still think that they will be too adventurous just like they were against France.Although Belgium’s central defenders have a lot of experience in regards to reading the play, the Portuguese have a lot of creativity and pace in midfield which they will use to the maximum to hit Belgium on the break. As we mentioned earlier, Vertonghen and  Alderweireld will struggle to keep up with them.
This leads us to believe that this will be a very high scoring and tight game. Both teams are great at moving the ball directly and exploiting each other’s weaknesses. This is a hard game to predict and could go either way but we believe Belgium will win 3-2 because overall, they have more balance in terms of attack and defence.

Belgium vs Portugal Betting Tips

If you read our articles on football betting systems and football betting tips, you would realize Belgium vs Portugal is the perfect match to place a bet on in Euro 2020.

The reason for that is simple, the odds for both teams are above 2.0 and it will be a closely contested match.

This means that you can triple your money by betting on Portugal or a draw and double your money if you bet on Belgium.

That being said, we have a betting tip for you that could help you win some money no matter who wins…

Place one bet on Portugal to win and one bet(of equal amount) on Belgium  to win. In this case you only lose your money if there is a draw but that is unlikely to happen in such a crucial game.

So essentially what you do is you split your budget for the game. Let’s say you have a budget of €200 for this game. You place one bet of €100 on Portugal and another €100 on Belgium.

If Portugal wins your Profit percentage would be 52.5% because your Profit would be €305-€200=€105.

If Belgium wins you would still end up with a 23% profit (€246-€200=€46. 46 is 23% of 200).

Sure, this system means that your profit percentage would be lower if you just bet on one team (205 % profit if you just bet on Portugal and 146% if you just bet on Belgium) but this system ensures that you don’t lose any money.

Keep in mind that this is not a fool proof system. If the match ends in a draw you will lose but as we pointed out earlier, the likelihood of a draw is very low.

Belgium vs Italy Euro 2021 Prediction and Betting Tips

Belgium vs Italy Euro 2021 Prediction and Betting Tips 

Belgium vs Italy will be the second game in the quarterfinals of Euro 2020. The Belgium vs Italy match will take place on June 2 at 2100 hrs Central Eastern European Summer Time at the Allianz Arena in Munich,Germany.

Belgium Form, potential line up and Tactics

Belgium qualified for the quarter finals in Euro 2020 by defeating Portugal 1-0 in the round of 16. With this victory over Portugal Belgium have equalled their longest winning streak at major tournaments, winning five in a row for the second time (both under Roberto Martínez).

Belgium have won 10 of their 11 games across the World Cup and European Championships since Martínez took charge.

Belgium’s last match against Portugal was not easy. The first half was a bit slow and boring but Thorgan Hazard’s amazing goal from outside the box changed the tempo of the game in the second half.

Portugal was attacking viciously in the second half especially after the introduction of Joao Felix and Bruno Fernandes. 

This is also reflected in the statistics…

Belgium had 6 attempts during the game, with 1 attempt on target while Portugal had a massive 23 attempts during the game.

Belgium succeeded primarily because of three reasons:

They were a well drilled and disciplined squad.Belgium were tactically fluid, they could easily form into a compact shape, spread out and press high when in possession and finally, they were also good at quick counter attacks.Belgium were also excellent at closing space.

Keep these three points in mind because these three points will help you understand our prediction for the Belgium vs Italy game in the quarter final of Euro 2020.

Check out our predictions for Italy vs England in the Euro 2020 final

This performance is not surprising from Belgium. Unlike many teams like Germany whose main players retired after their peak, Belgium’s squad has retained its main talent while introducing newer players who play regularly.

Belgium tactics

Belgium lines up in a 3-4-3 formation. When Belgium needs to defend the two wide midfielders, Thorgan Hazard and Thomas Meunier drop back in defence while the two forwards fall back in midfield and Lukaku stays ahead. Effectively, in defence, Belgium’s shape resembles a 4-5-1 in defence.

Belgium likes to build from the back and attack from the left. The wide midfielders push wide while the two wide forwards cut inside the box. The midfielders are the key part in this system as they create scintillating crosses and passes into the box and or can make overlapping runs into the box and shoot.

The other key component of this system is one of the best creative players in the world, Kevin De Bruyne. We will explain his role through the picture below that explains how Belgium attack.

Belgium like to pile on the pressure on their opponents by pressing their team high up the pitch as you can see from the picture above.

The three man defence is sitting at the halfway line. Thorgan Hazard can go wide and make crosses. If the ball is on the right, He will stay a bit further back and wait for the opportunity to burst into the box.

We saw him do exactly that in his goal against Portugal in the round of 16.

In attack, Belgium’s shape looks like a 3-2-5. The two wide midfielders join the 3 forwards while the two midfielders stay a bit further back to try and win the ball if Belgium loses possession.

De Bruyne creates a lot of options and chances because of the way he plays. He can run into the box, play one-two passes with the right midfielder and drift wide to create crosses, he can run straight if Belgians are attacking from the left.

Apart from his off the ball movements, if he gets the ball he can create many chances which are represented by the red curved lines in the picture above.

He can create through balls for Meunier on the right, stretch the play and pass it to the left midfielder, create through balls and aerial long balls for the forwards or he can add extra pressure by letting one of the midfielders (usually tielemans) join the attack and an an extra man in attack in the box and giving him a chances to shoot.

Belgium Weakness

Belgium are a solid side with good defensive discipline. But they are prone to quick counter attacks because their centerbacks Alderweireld,Vermaelen and Vertonghen are 32,35 and 34 respectively.

Their experience does help them position properly, set effective offside traps and anticipate the game well but they have to rely on the 2 midfielders in front of them to prevent these long balls.

Belgium can also be exposed in one of the flanks (usually the left) where they attack from which Italy could exploit.

Belgium can be especially exposed to risk if one of their midfielders joins the attack and fails to track back. 

In the game against Portugal though the Belgium players showed good defensive discipline often falling back and preventing Portugal from attacking, but when Portugal brought on more attacking players they showed that Belgium’s exceptional and compact defense can still be broken down.

When De Bruyne was not present Belgium weren’t able to create a lot of chances during the group stage. He was taken off at half time and we are waiting for an update regarding his injury. His absence will affect Belgium’s opportunities for creating chances.

Belgium Predicted Line up For Belgium vs Italy

Hazard and De Bruyne were taken off in Belgium’s game against Portugal because of injury concerns. According to Belgium’s manager, Roberto Martinez both of them are set to miss out the quarter final game against Italy.

Italy Form, potential line up and Tactics

Italy qualified for the quarterfinals after defeating Austria 2-1 in extra time in the round of 16.  After their victory over Austria Italy are now undefeated in 31 games. Italy’s last defeat was in September 2018 in a nations league game against Portugal.

This was the first real test for Italy in the European Championship after they cruised through the group stage conceding ZERO goals and scoring 7 goals in 3 games.

We have covered Italy’s tactics in our previous match reviews in slotfreespin but we will be covering them nonetheless here and demonstrate how Italy played in the group stage and against Austria.

We will then highlight their strengths and weaknesses and predict how they will play against Belgium and then try to make a prediction based on this information. If you like to bet on football games we will then be giving you some nice betting tips for the Belgium vs Italy game in Euro 2020.

How Italy played during Euro 2020- the numbers

Italy is currently ranked 7th best team in Europe according to Fifa’s ranking. Italy was in group A of Euro 2020 where they faced Switzerland who are ranked 13th,Wales who are ranked 17th and Turkey who are ranked 29th in Europe.

Italy beat Turkey 3-0, a side that had conceded just 3 goals during the qualifiers for Euro 2020. They then went on to beat Switzerland 3-0 , a team which is also very hard to break down because they defend very well but can also attack on the counter and they did the same with Wales who can also be deadly on the counter but is hard to break down.

In the group stage Italy demonstrated that they could break down teams that can sit back and defend.

This reflects in their stats during the group stage:

Italy scored 7 goals. They were tied with Belgium and Portugal on 2nd spot for the most number of goals during the group stage.Italy had also the second highest attempts on goal at 60, only 1 shy of Denmark who had 61 attempts. There was a clear gap between these two teams and other teams. The team with the third highest attempts was Switzerland, with 47 attempts, 13 less than Italy.

How Italy played during Euro 2020- the tactics

Along with France, Italy is known to be the fashion capital of the world. Just like the French the Italians are known to be elegant and this reflects in the style of Football they play under their current manager Roberto Mancini.

Under Mancini Italy:

Usually plays in a 4-3-3 formationPlays a direct style of football with high pressingBuilds from the back and has the ability to quickly turn defence into attack.

Italy’s formation looks something like this.

In defence, the other 2 attackers Insigne and Berardi would fall back with the three men in midfield (Jorginho,Locatelli and Barella) to make it look more like a 4-5-1 formation with Immobile as the lone striker staying in front of them waiting for the counter attack when Italy won the ball.

It’s in attack though Italy would look like the picture below:

So when Italy were building up attacks, the entire team would push very high up the pitch with one defender, Bonucci staying a bit further back, Chiellini pushing a bit further forward, Florenzi the right back, forming a back three and flanking Chiellini, Jorginho just staying ahead of them.

This allowed them to form a diamond and create many passing opportunities to crack open compact defences from the back while committing men forward.

The Left back Spinnazola was given the freedom to attack from wide and whip in crosses into the box while the wide left forward Insigne would cut inside the box with Immobile. 

Berrardi would stay a bit wide.

Italy had a preference for attacking from the left. If the attack was catching steam, then one of the midfielders, like barrella, would push into the box. 

This meant that Italy had 5 men in the box. Keep this fact in mind. If you remember correctly Belgium would try to have 5 men in the box as well with the two wide midfielders joining the defenders.

The front three are dynamic and fluid, which means that they keep switching positions. The striker Ciro Immobile can fall back to collect the ball and make amazing through balls for the other two forwards.

In midfield Jorginho starts behind the other two midfielders who usually push forward more.

Jorginho is extremely talented in winning back balls and turning defence into attack by making through balls and long balls from deep.

Even Verratti and Locatelli are good at doing Jorginho’s job so if Jorginho is marked.

Italy Weakness

Just Like Belgium, Italy’s defenders are quite old and slow but very talented. Italy are also quite exposed for counter attacks from the left as Spinazzola likes to bomb forward. They may also be liable to broken down from the wide.

Italy Predicted line up

Verratti has justified his reintroduction to the squad. After missing out against Austria, Captain Chiellini and the right back Florenzi might be back at the back. Chiesa might get his first start in the Euro 2020 because of his performance and goal against Austria

Belgium vs Italy Euro 2021 Predictions

Belgium face a major disadvantage because of De Bruyne’s injury.
Belgium will struggle to create chances in De Bruyne’s absence just like they did during the group stage. Belgium will try to hit Italy on the counter to score.
Italy on it’s part would be better at countering Belgium because they have the players that can progress the ball quickly from defense into attack, Belgium can do that as well but statistically speaking they are not better than Italy in doing so .
Belgium would be more prone to counter attacks if they decide to push Tielemans further forward. The reason for this is simple, If Tielemans decides to be more daring and run into the box, Belgium would struggle to win the ball with just Witsel. Menieur would try to cover that space as well as the space on the right. If Meunier pushes up as well to fill this space, Belgium will have just men at the back and the could attack from the left easily with Spinnazola from a good counter attacking move.
Belgium can switch things up and try to attack Italy from the right instead of preferring to attack from the left. This would be done to exploit the space that Spinnazolla tends to leave behind when he is bombing forward from the left.
Belgium will be wary of the threat from Spinnazzola so they might instruct Tielemans to be careful so that Meunier can defend against a potential counter from Spinnazzola. Unless Belgium concedes they will exercise this caution.Italy on the other hand will have a numerical advantage in midfield. The reasons for this is how they attack vs how they defend. As we pointed out earlier, Italy falls back in a 4-5-1 whereas Belgium attacks in a 3-2-5 or a 2-3-6. This leaves Belgium at an advantage in front of goal because Italy have 4 men at the back.

But Jorginho can fall further back in the box and which means Italy have 5 men at the back but because Jorginho is very quick he can win the ball and progress it into midfield or pass it wide to Spinazzola which leaves Belgium at a disadvantage numerically.
Italy’s midfielders are better at making interceptions. Jorginho made an average of 2.8 interceptions per game, Verratti made 1 and Locatelli made 0.7. Whereas in the Belgium side Axel Witsel made an average of 0 and Tielemans made 1. Dendoncker who played in place of Witsel during most of the group stage also made 1.

This is a key stat because it gives us a picture of how likely a team’s midfield is to prevent dangerous balls from reaching their defenders.
Jorginho also made 0.8 through balls per game, whereas only Tielemans managed to make a through ball which was 0.3 per game. De Bruyne had the same average but if he misses the game then Belgium lose their creative edge even more.
This statistic seems to suggest that Italy again are at an advantage in making dangerous balls from midfield either during a counter attack or by patiently building up an attack.
A final piece of important statistic that Belgian fans might not like to see is the number of long balls created per game. Yet again, Italy’s midfield wins here. Verratti, Locatelli and Jorginho created 2.3,2.5 and 1.8 long balls per game compared to Belgium’s midfielders Witsel and Tielemans who managed only 1.7 per game. This means Italy’s midfielders are more skilled at making dangerous long balls to their forwards that could penetrate defences compared to Belgium’s midfielders.

Belgium though had De Bruyne who made an average of 4 which is slightly above Italy’s forward, Insigne who made 3.7. This yet again suggests that Belgium have a clear reliance on De Bruyne for creating chances. If De Bruyne misses the game Belgium will suffer even more in terms of chance creation.

Based on these factors we can see that both teams do have quality in depth, are in great form, and have complementary weaknesses. 

But that being said, Italy has a slight edge in midfield thanks to Jorginho and Verratti and at least on paper are a stronger threat when it comes to recovering balls and progressing the balls to their attackers and quickly turning defence into attack.

Based on these facts we expect the Belgium vs Italy game to end 1-0.
