UEFA Euro 2020 Belgium vs Portugal 27 JUNE
In what is arguably the most exciting of 16 Euro 2020 ties, the world’s best-ranked team takes on the reigning champions. We can expect quite the spectacle in Seville, given the aggressive nature of both countries, which have already scored 14 goals each.
Belgium was one of three teams that had a 100% record in the group stage. They also conceded only one goal.
Roberto Martinez’s team is now unbeaten in 12 of their last 12 games, winning 10 of them. They hope that this year will be their first major silverware win in their history. Portugal won the ‘group to die’ along with France and Germany, scoring seven times.
They were defeated by the Germans in their last nine games. They will continue to try to defend the crown with that solid form.
BELGIUM Vs. PORTUGAL: MATCH STATS
Two of the tournament’s top scorers will lead both teams. Romelu Lukaku, in his trademark style, has been sharp and clinical for Belgium. He found the net three times as often in as many games.
Cristiano Ronaldo has five goals in Portugal’s corner and Ali Daei’s international record of109. The Selecao skipper, however, has scored in both of their three outings so far.

TIPS FOR BETTING IN BELGIUM Vs PORTUGAL
Belgium’s best attacking players, De Bruyne and Lukaku, are at their peak, while Martinez has more options from the bench. Witsel/Tielemans could make a great central midfield partnership at Euro 2020, I believe. Portugal’s tournament is over.
BETTING TIP: Belgium Money Line
PepeHe is 38 years old and one of the most vile players I have ever seen. He’ll be booked against the great Lukaku, which I believe is very probable. You can watch Sport Soccer Euro 2020 FREE online at wclub365 for every single game of the tournament.
