This is a game between geographical neighbors and the two strongest teams from those that remained in the world Cup.

Rate. Factor Mbappe and the absence in Belgium of Tom Meunier slightly tip the scales to the side of the French team. The team Didier Deschamps looks practically invulnerable, and fully showed their capabilities. For Belgium, the match against Brazil could be the peak. What is not in doubt is that both teams will score a goal, and maybe more – France and Belgium have sufficient attacking potential.
