On June 27, the match of the 1/8 final of the 2020 European Football Championship between the national teams of Belgium and Portugal will take place. We bring to your attention the forecast for this meeting.
The Belgian national team passed the group stage in the "light" mode. The team of Roberto Martinez did not play even at 30% of their capabilities. The only thing was that I had to be a little nervous in the game against Denmark, but as soon as Kevin de Bruyne appeared on the field, he immediately decided the outcome of the match. Belgium is strong, first of all, because it can play "according to the result". It is necessary to attack – it will attack, it is necessary to defend – it will defend.
Cristiano Ronaldo continues to break records and pull the Portuguese national team on his back. Of the seven goals of the Portuguese, five are on Ron's account. However, critics continue to reproach him with the fact that there are a lot of goals from penalties. But here the question is not for him, but for the defensive game of the opponents. The matches against Germany and France turned out to be difficult, but, in general, there was an excellent preparation for the star Belgians. Portugal also passed the group at the last Euro 2016 with some difficulty, and then took and won. It is certainly not necessary to discount Ronaldo and the company in the current draw.
Statistics and figures:
- Belgium has won four matches in a row;
- Portugal has two wins in the last five games;
- The Belgian national team last defeated Portugal back in 1989.
It is extremely difficult to predict the result of this match. On the one hand, the Belgians look like a more cohesive team, which is not by chance one of the main favorites of Euro 2020. On the other hand, Portugal is the current European champion, who showed his teeth in the "group of death". We will not guess about the result, but we will offer to bet on a much more obvious option – a goal performed by Ronaldo. If Portugal is going to score, then Krish will definitely do it.
