Belgium and Italy both have has a perfect win record at the EUROs. The two of them also won their previous two outings before the tournament. Let’s take an in-depth look into both teams.

Belgium v Italy Prediction - Preview

Belgium

Belgium began their campaign in the knockout rounds on a great note as they ousted defending European champions Portugal, 1-0. The first half was quiet for the most part, until Thorgan Hazard broke the deadlock with a right-footed strike just before halftime. The Selecao tried their best to equalise in the second half, but their shots couldn’t get past Thibaut Courtois. Manager Roberto Martinez’s singled out his side’s mentality and show of discipline as the secrets to dethroning the Portugues. However, with superstars De Bruyne and Hazard nursing critical injuries, he would have to look deeper into his bag of tricks in order to beat the undefeated Italians.

  • Against no other side have Belgium played more matches at major competitions without winning than Italy (four times, level with France and Germany).
  • The Red Devils have won7 of their last 8 matches in the EUROs, the only exception being the 2016 quarter-final where they lost to Wales.

Italy

Italy also atarted the knockout phase with a bang, outlasting dark horses Austria in their round of 16 clash. Both sides were not able to make the breakthrough during full time; Ciro Immobile got as far as hitting the post, and Marko Arnautovic’s goal was ruled out. But things got heated in extra time as Federico Chiesa volleyed in from a tight angle at 95′, and substitute Matteo Pessina doubled the lead 10 minutes later. Das Team got a glimmer of hope with Sasa Kalajdzic getting a goal at 114′ but they fell short of a comeback. Manager Roberto Mancini thought that the win was well-deserved, and lauded his players for making adjustments against the tough Austrian squad. Will they be as tough facing the top-ranked Belgians in their next encounter?

  • Italy have reached the EURO quarter-finals for the 4th consecutive time. Their 3 previous appearances was determined by penalty shoot out (lost to Spain in 2008 and Germany in 2016; won against England in 2012).
  • The Azzurri have only conceded more than 1 goal in 1 of their last 18 matches in the WC/EUROs combined. They’ve conceded 13 goals across all these games (8 clean sheets) with the only game where they conceded more than 1 goal being the EURO 2012 final against Spain (0-4).

Belgium v Italy Prediction - Final Thoughts

With De Bruyne and Hazard currently doubtful for Belgium, the pressure is on them to contain an amazing Italian side. Immobile, Insigne, and Locatelli may most likely make the lineup for the Azzurri, while it will be up to Lukaku, Thorgan and Jorginho to carry the Red Devils. It will be a thriller of a match, which we see tilting towards a low-scoring type of game. In the end, we see the Belgians going against the odds and pulling off a surprise win.  Let’s take a look at the prediction.
