France have been priced on reputation rather than their recent form here. They struggled to get going at Euro 2020 and didn’t hit the heights of their World Cup win in 2018. We’ve seen that continue in their qualifiers, where they drew with Bosnia & Herzegovina. There’s a feeling that the unity in the French camp isn’t quite there.

As for Belgium, I feel they are extremely motivated to win a trophy and win something with this golden generation. I’m not sure how motivated Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba will be by a UEFA Nations League semi-final. After looking at the prices, Belgium to Win seems a solid bet.

If you’re ever looking at a goalscorer bet in a Belgium match, Romelu Lukaku is the way to go. He has a better goals-to-minutes ratio than both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Playing in front of Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard will definitely help too so I’ll be all over Romelu Lukaku to Score First.
