Belgium’s Form: WWWWD
Belgium are in great form and are currently on an unbeaten run of 12 games. With the likes of Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard returning to the playing XI the team have really improved overall.
Portugal’s Form: DLWWD
As usual, Portugal is being carried by only one man, Cristiano Ronaldo. Their defense is not up to the mark and the midfield is nonexistent as they don’t create anything. Cristiano Ronaldo leveled with Ali Daei for most international goals scored with 109. He is also the current top scorer of the tournament with 5 goals to his name.

BEL vs POR betting tips and prediction
This will be a great matchup as both of these teams are really strong. Belgium is the favorite to win this tie but it won’t be that easy. If Portugal wants to win this tie then their whole team has to play great and not just Cristiano Ronaldo. If the match ends in a draw then I think Portugal will win at penalties.
