Surprising team against one of the favourites
At the second match of the quarter finals of the EURO 2016 Wales will meet Belgium. The team of Chris Coleman is one of the biggest surprises in this competition and at the round of the last 8, while Belgium was one of the favourites for winning the title from the beginning on. Kick-off on the 1st of July is at 9 p.m..
Current performance of Wales
It would be a lie to say that Wales only made it with some luck in to the quarter finals of the EURO 2016.At the group stage they already convinced at the group B against England, Slovakia and Russia. They even lead the group right before their bigger brother England. They even blessed Wales with a thankful job at the eighth finals, because at the round of the last 16 Northern Ireland has been their rival. At the match against the O´Neill eleven, they have been the weaker team as coach Chris Coleman also admitted afterwards. They only have won because of an own goal from Northern Ireland. It seems as if Wales feels more comfortable as outsider but against Belgium they fit in this role. Of course for a victory they need a good performance and also Real-Superstar Gareth Bale. He seems to be a match for the key player. At the group stage he has been already three times successful and also against Northern Ireland he scored the winning goal. In addition the team of Chris Coleman has a fighter heart that can cause trouble for nearly every team. They also switch their play fast, they will also use this tactics against Belgium.
Current performance of Belgium
While Wales has started with a victory at this tournament, the “golden generation” of Belgium started with a 0:2 defeat against Italy into this competition. However it seems as if this defeat was the wakeup call for the Marc Wilmots eleven. The following two group matches and at the eighth final match has been won by them. In addition they also didn’t get a goal from the other side. Especially impressing have been the matches against Ireland (3:0) and Hungary (4:0). Hungary wasn’t a weaker team on the contrary but even though Belgium has scored 4 goals. The offensive play is also very impressing they often switch very fast from a defence play to an offensive play. If the team has a weakness than probable at the defence. However to call it a “weakness” is also exaggerated. At the attack Chelsea-Star Eden Hazard was in best form lately. All in all Belgium has a high quality team and after the performance against Hungary they are back as one of the favourite teams for winning the title.
Betting tip for this match
Enjoyment of playing versus fighting strength. Ball handling skills versus strong collective. Due to the draw Belgium suspects for their chance to reaching the final. Wales on the other side can only surprise. We think that the Wilmots eleven finally found their form and will win this match in the end. That’s why our tip is: tip 2.
