Verdict: Belgium win

Best Odds: 21/10

On Tuesday night, France and Belgium go head-to-head in the first semi-finals of World Cup 2018. Both teams have impressed in Russia so far, but only one can make it through to Sunday’s final.


France have not hit their top form of yet in Russia. However, Les Bleus have won four of their five matches at World Cup 2018 and shown flashes of quality in the process. After a reasonably comfortable passage from their group, Didier Deschamps side has beaten Argentina and last time defeated Uruguay 2-0 thanks to goals from Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann.

Arsenal have also wanted cover at right-back with Mathieu Debuchy available for sale.
