Parimatchnews will tell you everything you need to know ahead of the upcoming match.

France Women News & Current Form: 

France have participated in the European Championships six times and have never progressed further than the quarter-finals. In the European Championship qualifiers in England, the Blues showed confidence – the team recorded seven wins and a draw, which resulted in 22 points and first place in the table.

It should be noted that the team have not conceded a goal in the entire tournament. In the World Cup qualifiers, Corin’s side claimed victory in all eight fixtures, and thereby earned the right to play in the final part of the Mundial. In the first game of the current EC in England, the French briliantly thrashed Italy (5-1).

Belgium Women News & Current Form:

The Belgian team made their first appearance in the knockout rounds of a European Championship tournament just last year. They beat Norway 2-0 in that campaign but lacked the strength to do more.

In the Euro 2022 qualifiers, the Reds scored seven wins and 21 points, which brought them top spot in the standings. Worth mentioning is their potent attacking performance, which culminated in 37 goals. In the first game of the new continental championship, the Belgians drew against Iceland (1-1). Although, looking at the way things were going, a draw was not such a bad result as Belgium narrowly missed a penalty in the 33rd minute and then made a defensive mistake in the second half that left them in a catch-up role before being able to level the score.

What has been said before the match:

Corinne Diacre, France coach: 

“We are ready for everything. We have worked on several things. We’ve been working on this for a while because we came up against teams like Belgium in the 2023 World Cup qualifiers. We are like we were on the eve of the first match: focused, determined. After the Italy game, I didn’t need to talk a lot. The girls know what they have to do. Honestly, I didn’t need to say anything.” 

Ives Serneels, Belgium coach:

“We will have to make the most of the few chances that we get [against France]. We think we can hurt them in some situations, but we will have to defend as a block against this France side. Will we play with an extra defender? That’s an option, but if we defend too deep we’re going to get completely trapped in front of our own goal and I also want my team to offer something in attack as well. Can we cause an upset? We have to believe that.”

France Women vs Belgium Women Prediction:

The French team were excellent in their opening game, leaving Italy – regarded by many as the dark horse of the tournament – no chance. The Tricolour side have one of the most physically powerful teams at this Euro, and their performance is absolutely fantastic.

Despite the fact that the Red Flames have improved significantly in recent years, Belgium have an average team that is not star-studded and cannot even compete with their opponents from the top cohort in any of the components.
