The second part of the Euro begins Monday July 1 for the Blues, and this time, there will be no second chance for Didier Deschamps’ men. They face Belgium at 6 p.m. Merkur Spiel-Arena de DüsseldorfThe Belgians will be keen to atone for their 2018 defeat (1-0) in the semi-final of the World Cup in Russia.

A French attack still silent in the game

France and Belgium both finished in second place in their groups. While Les Bleus showed great defensive solidity against Austria, the Netherlands and Poland, it was in attack that things were lacking. It’s simple, the French team didn’t score any goals during the game (an own goal against Austria and a penalty against Poland).

Belgium has been unconvincing since the start of the Euro

On the Belgian side, things are no better. The Red Devils were surprised at the start by Slovakia (1-0), before recovering against Romania (2-0). Kevin de Bruyne and his teammates, on the other hand, delivered a lackluster performance against Ukraine (0-0), which allowed them to secure their qualification for the last 16, but did not reassure them about their ability to beat one of the competition’s favourites.

A big rivalry

Belgium is the team that France has faced the most (75) during its history. The rivalry was exacerbated after the Red Devils’ defeat in the World Cup semi-finals in Russia.We know it’s not going to be easy, they’re an excellent team with very great players. We’re not going to look down on them, we’re going to give it our all to qualify.”William Saliba said at a press conference on June 27.
