France vs. Belgium: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

Neighbors France and Belgium will battle it out for a place in the quarterfinals at Euro 2024 when they go head-to-head in Dusseldorf on Monday.

Neither side have hit top gear in this competition so far and now the pressure is on to deliver a performance or see their campaign in Germany brought to an abrupt end.

France vs. Belgium betting picks and predictions

France to win and both teams to score (+375)

Considering their proximity, these sides have only faced each other once in the last six years, with France beating Belgium 3-2 at Juventus Stadium in October 2021.

That really was an opportunity missed by Belgium as they held a 2-0 lead at the hour mark, before goals from Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappe and Theo Hernandez saw Les Bleus pull off a famous comeback victory in Turin.

Belgium’s golden generation has been much talked about and this will be the last chance of European glory for some of their big names.

Perhaps this national side has already passed its prime as they failed to impress in Group E, which they were expected to dominate.

Losing to Slovakia in their opening game, Belgium responded with a 2-0 win over Romania before a goalless draw against Ukraine.

France went unbeaten in Group D, with a win over Austria and draws against the Netherlands and Poland enough to take Didier Deschamps’ side through.

Les Bleus have the quality to overcome this Belgian side, who looked off the pace during the group stage.

Belgium still have their threats in attack, so going with both teams to score and France to win looks to be the way to go here.

Mbappe two or more goals (+800)

Bagging his first goal of the tournament, albeit from the penalty spot against Poland, will have given Mbappe an injection of confidence just at the right time before the knockout stages.

The Real Madrid-bound star endured a tough start to the European Championship, suffering a broken nose in the 1-0 win over Austria.

Returning against Poland, the 25-year-old looks ready to get back to his best, as he did in the knockout stages of the last major tournament at the 2022 World Cup.

Having scored last time France met Belgium, Mbappe is certainly worth considering in the multiple goals market in what could be a high-scoring affair at Merkur Spiel-Arena.

Scoring hat-tricks against Argentina and Gibraltar and braces in two games against the Netherlands, Mbappe has shown he’s more than capable of scoring multiple goals in matches when he gets going.

He can do the same against the Belgians in Dusseldorf and is good value to do so.

Jan Vertonghen to be booked (+250)

Shown a yellow card the last time these sides met in Turin, Jan Vertonghen is a player to consider to be carded on Monday.

The former Tottenham Hotspur centre-back is likely to be busy at Merkur Spiel-Arena with the likes of Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, Antoine Greizmann and Ousmane Dembele to keep an eye on.

Issued that yellow against France last time the face off, it would be little surprise to see Vertonghen’s name end up in the referee’s book once again.
