Belgium were beaten by eventual Euro 2020 winners Italy during the summer in what was a lively and entertaining encounter and we’re surprised that the Red Devils are trading at such a big price to overcome France in this Nations League encounter.

Roberto Martinez’s side had previously sparkled during the group stage of the European Championships and then showed plenty of defensive steel to shut out Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo, with Kevin de Bruyne now back fit and firing for his country.

This Belgium side will be highly motivated against France, with captain Eden Hazard back in the fold at Real Madrid and we’re surprised to see the bookies make Les Bleus the favourites. The French flattered to deceive at Euro 2020 and they are likely to be missing N’Golo Kante for this clash, while they have recently been held to 1-1 draws against Bosnia and Ukraine.

Simply put, Didier Deschamps’ side have lost some of that sparkle that helped them win the 2018 World Cup. While on paper they always look like the team to beat, there could be some merit in backing Belgium on the Asian Handicap market with half a goal start for this one.
