Despite finishing at 3rd in a very tough Group F, Portugal squeezed into the RO16 as one of the best third-placed teams. Meanwhile, Belgium are one of the only three teams in the tournament to reach the RO16 by winning all their group stage matches. Here at Betting.co.uk, we will keep you posted with all the Euro 2020 betting odds and live streams throughout the tournament. For now, let’s dive into the preview for Belgium vs Portugal Euro 2020.
Arguably the best team in recent years, Belgium has demolished every nation on its way to become world number 1. Their journey in Euro 2020 has been no different, thrashing Russia, Denmark and Finland quite comfortably in the group stage. Belgium’s golden generation, the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard, look to get their hands on the country's first silverware in its history!
Romelu Lukaku, Belgium’s top scorer in history, has been in fine form in Euro 2020, netting three goals. Meanwhile, Hazard and De Bruyne started and played full time in the last match after starting the tournament on the injured list.
Reigning European Champions Portugal have witnessed a roller coaster of form in Euro 2020 with a win, draw and loss apiece in the group stage. Despite coming into the tournament as one of the favourites in the Euro 2020 Winner Odds, Portugal will feel lucky to sneak into the next stage of the competition.
They have been ever-reliant on Cristiano Ronaldo, the top scorer in Euro Championship history, who already has six goal contributions in Euro 2020. But Portugal will be hoping for other big names in the squad like Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva and co. to up their standards and perform well in this crucial game.
Belgium vs Portugal Euro 2020 is certainly one of the most sought after ties in the last 16. This is a game that either team could win on the day. However, looking at the recent forms of both the teams, the Red Devils unsurprisingly have been favoured heavily by the UK bookmakers for this clash against Portugal. 888sport is offering the odds of a Belgium win at 29/20. Meanwhile, Portugal haven’t been entirely written off and the odds of a Portugal win are currently at 41/20. A draw at full-time in this highly-anticipated clash looks unlikely, given the firepower on the two sides, but the stalemate is being offered at odds of 11/5 by the bookmaker.
Belgium have been too hot to handle for the teams in group stage having scored 2 or more goals in each of their 3 games. Portugal having played a very attacking style of play in the defence of their European Championship. Even though it produced plenty of goals, it has cost them in defence, conceding two or more goals in each of their last 2 group stage matches.
