Belgium vs Italy (02.07.2021), EURO 2020 QUARTERFINAL
Belgium will face Italy in the Euro 2020 quarterfinals, which promises to be an entertaining encounter. Both sides had to work hard to advance to the round of 16, but the Belgians had the most difficult opponent in the shape of Portugal.
Italy won the group round but required extra time to defeat Austria, and they now face their greatest test of the tournament thus far. The odibets free bet bonus is highlighted in our preview of this game.
Martinez’s men, the world’s highest-ranked team according to FIFA, enter this encounter on the back of a remarkable run that included triumphs in all three group games and a 1-0 win over reigning Champions, Portugal, in the last 16.
Belgium’s undefeated streak in all competitions now stands at 13 games, with 11 victories. Denmark is the only side to score against them in the competition, but Portugal was their first true test at Euro, and Italy follow suit and this will be another test to Belgium.
They will want to maintain their winning streak, as they are currently three wins away from winning their first major championship.
Italy’s quest for its first continental title since 1968 will continue after defeating Austria in the last 16. So far, Mancini’s enchantment has been very effective, as the Azzurri have not lost a game since September 2018. Italy has scored in each of their past ten games and has 13 goals in their last five.
Besides being previously won the European Championship, they were considered the underdogs. The Italians are a high-quality team that felt they could compete with any team in this league.
As they head to this much, we expect the boys to try and keep their winning strike and increase their chances of winning the title this time around.
