France has looked methodical and dominant in getting to the World Cup Semi-Finals. They have yet to lose a game, the one draw coming against Denmark when they had all but sewn up top spot in their group. Then in the knockout stage, they went toe to toe with Argentina and emerged with a thrilling 4-3 win.

Argentina decided to open up the middle, daring France into more chances with the belief that they had enough skill to come out on top. Instead it was France’s world class players who did just enough to get the win in a great back and forth affair.

France were back to their more methodical ways, locking down Uruguay who had eliminated Portugal in the previous round. Chances were few and far between for the South American nation and France again relied on its best players to help push through with a 2-0 win.

Belgium in the meanwhile was so in control during the group stage, scoring the most goals and posting the largest goal differential. They still have not dropped a game in the tournament, but Japan certainly gave them the scare of their lives, going up 2-0 in their round of 16 game deep into the second half. But the Belgium’s play an attacking style and they continued to do what they do best. They brought the heat and managed to tie the game with goals in the 69th and 74th minute and then pulled off the dramatic win in the final minute of regulation stoppage time.

Against perennial favorites, Brazil in the quarterfinals they leaned into their attacking style, especially in the opening half and the plan worked to perfection. Brazil didn’t know what hit them as Belgium jumped out to a 2-0 lead. They held on at the end as Brazil had many chances are were just unable to bury them, making the final 2-1.

In this game expect Belgium to continue to attack and France to counter and that should make for a style of play worthy of these two heavyweights.

Bovada Sportsbook currently have the France listed as +150 ML Favorites versus the Belgium, at +210 ML Undergod while the Draw is at +225.
