BELGIUM VS ITALY PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Although they have reached the quarter-finals, Italy’s ability to continue is not available. As they faced one of the heaviest contenders for the title, Belgium. Even the fact that Italy is named in the quarterfinals is also a blessing when the opponent they met in the ⅛ round is just Austria, a mid-range team. And Italy also had to work very hard to get a 2-1 victory over the opponent. Meanwhile, Belgium has proven their strength. They overcame the EURO champion, Portugal, with a score of 1-0 in the end.
It should be known that the current Italian squad has no shortage of quality names like Insigne, Belotti, Immobile, Chiesa… But what they lack is cohesion between the teams. While Belgium even without Kevin De Bruyne in the squad, their tactics still operate smoothly. Currently, Bruyne and Eden Hazard of this team will not be able to play because of a minor injury against Portugal. Therefore, most people think that this match will not have many goals to be scored. Especially when Belgium chooses to play more safely. And the Under is the more preferred option.
Select: Under 2 FT (Over 0.5-1 H1).
Italy is not weak but to win against Belgium is very difficult. Because in the group stage, they were also lucky to be in the group with only Turkey, Switzerland and Wales. Despite winning all 3 matches, the match against Wales and Italy was very difficult to win with the minimum. When their opponent has to play with a 10-man squad. While Belgium has always maintained a stable game from the beginning of the group stage to the present.
However, as mentioned above, Belgium is currently not having the greatest strength. When both Hazard and K. De Bruyne were injured. With an incomplete squad, victory will be difficult for Belgium. But if the game goes into extra time or a series of lucky penalties, those are all things that Belgium can do.
Select: Belgium +0.25 FT.
When both teams are choosing a safe play, surely this match will not have more than 2 goals scored. And in the first half, there will probably be no goals. And they need the minutes of extra time to determine the outcome of the match.
Select: Draw FT.
Belgium vs Italy Prediction: Belgium 0-0 Italy FT (0-0 H1).
Belgium: Courtois, Vertonghen, Meunier, Alderweireld, Dendoncker, De Bruyne, Witsel, E. Hazard, Lukaku, T. Hazard, Mertens.
Italy: Donnarumma, Chiellini, Spinazzola, Spinazzola, Bonucci, Barella, Jorginho, Chiesa, Immobile, Locatelli, Insigne.
