At long last, the semifinals are upon us in the World Cup. In the first semifinal match, Belgium will battle France for a spot in the final. These teams have dominated thus far in the tournament and will now clash in what should be the best matchup of the entire tournament. Both teams possess tremendous offensive ability which should lead to a highly competitive and entertaining match this Tuesday.
Belgium’s success is due to its star forwards Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku. Belgium’s attack was crucial in its last match against Brazil where these two superstars played unbelievably on the counter-attack. Brazil was unable to physically handle them as they created chances for the entire match. Belgium was able to score its two goals due to their contributions. Now, Belgium will need Hazard and Lukaku to play extremely well against France if the country has any hope of making its first World Cup Final ever. Expect these two to lay it all on the line this Tuesday as a result.
France entered the World Cup as one of the favorites to lift the trophy. So far this tournament, France has done nothing but prove that it is a legit contender. One area where the team has excelled is on the defensive end. In five World Cup matches, France has not allowed a goal in four of them. However, if a team is actually able to penetrate its defense, France also possesses a powerful line of attacking forwards who can score with ease. France’s solid all-around play should pose serious problems for Belgium who play a more counter-attacking style of play. Expect France to pressure Belgium’s defenders and midfielders constantly on Tuesday in order to set up some serious attacking chances.
As for my prediction, I have to side with France. Belgium has been extremely impressive this tournament but France is a different animal. Belgium’s defense can get extremely sloppy at times and it was torn to shreds in the second half against Brazil. I think that France is a more complete team and will win the match as a result.
