Belgium

Before the start of Euro 2020, the Belgian national team was considered one of the main favorites to win the tournament. The team of Roberto Martinez still fully justifies its status. In the group the Belgians ended up with Russia, Denmark and Finland and already outright claimed the first place, beating the Russian national team with a score of 3:0 in St. Petersburg.

In the second round the “red devils” met resistance from Denmark, but got out of the situation with dignity, beating the Danes with a score of 2:1 in Copenhagen. The Finnish national team tried to give a fight in the last round, but only held out until the middle of the second half. A 2:0 victory allowed them to finish first in the group with nine points.

In the playoffs Belgium faced Portugal and the fight turned out to be very difficult. Through the efforts of Thorgan Azar, they managed to open an account in the first half, but the Portuguese created a lot of chances and only miraculously did not score. As a result, the “red devils” kept the minimum victory and ended up in the quarterfinals.

Italy

The Italian national team under Roberto Mancini has seriously progressed and approached Euro 2020 in great shape. The Italians continued to win in the group. Their first victim was the Turkish national team (3:0). Three unanswered goals went into the gates of the Swiss national team in the second round. This victory guaranteed an exit to the playoffs from the first place.

The squadra azzurra won a 1:0 win over Wales in the third round, setting a record for the European Championships. Until that moment no one had managed to win three matches in a group dry.

In the 1/8 finals Italy was almost eliminated. In the confrontation with Austria the Italians were considered the clear favorites, but in the main time they failed to score. In extra time Italy finished off a tired opponent with two goals from Federico Chiesa and Matteo Pessina. Austria won back one goal, but it was not enough for more. So, what is the free soccer predictions for today?

Prediction

The Belgian national team looked powerful in the group, but in the playoffs Portugal created a lot of problems for the Belgians and there was no trace of the former power of the “red devils” in that mast. Italy is not perfect in attack, as the match with Austria showed, but at the same time the Italians are very solid in defense and in general Mancini's charges look more balanced. In our opinion it makes sense to give them preference.

Moreover, the Belgians may be left without a key player in the person of Kevin De Bruyne, who came to Euro 2020 injured and was injured again in the last match. Even if he appears today, he will hardly be able to show the best football and the fight with Denmark showed how important this player is for the team.

We believe that the Italians have a better chance of winning. Prediction is Asian handicap (0) for Italy. In BC 1xBet such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.70.

Italy has never missed Euro 2020, but today this series may come to an end. The Belgian attack, led by Romelu Lukaku, is perhaps the strongest in the tournament, while the “red devils” have not failed at the European Championship yet. However, Italy, which is in excellent shape, is unlikely to leave unanswered the effective action of the opponent.

Our second bet will be both goals. This bet can be placed for 1.99.

For those who prefer to bet on high odds, we offer a bet for Italy's victory in one goal. Such an outcome in the line can be found with odds of 3.85.
