Belgium and Portugal continue in Round 16 of Euro 2020, and the stake in this match is high for both teams. The current European football champion will defend his title, and Belgium will prove to be one of the strongest teams in recent years.
Belgium will try to continue in the round of 16, with the advantages of the team being good form, classy players playing in the top European championships and last but not least high success, as in their last 58 matches they have failed to score in only two, as one of the matches is with France, and the other with Portugal in 2018. The team is definitely in shape, some of their key players are returning from injuries, so we can expect a high level of football from Belgium.
Portugal enter this match as Euro 2016 Champions and is unlikely to underestimate. We know the capabilities of the players of coach Fernando Santos, who showed that they can cope even with the World Champions France in the final of Euro 2016, and at this European Championship they finished 2:2 in the groups. Definitely Cristiano Ronaldo will be a key figure in this match, but the team has other great players, and those who are not so popular, but play with great desire and give for their country. Despite the top players of Belgium and their form at the moment, I think that Portugal has more experience in such championships and this can play a big role in determining the outcome of the match. Slight advantage for Portugal and possibility to bet on odds over 3.00 in most bookmakers.
