Belgium vs Portugal Betting Tips

The first of the many super heavyweight bouts in the knockouts is all set to roll with this game. Belgium and Portugal are facing each other in the Estadio de la Cartuja, Seville in Spain on the 28th of June 2021 at 00:30 IST. Both teams in contrasting forms even though both qualified into the knockouts. 

Belgium Form and Team News

Belgium put Finland’s hopes of qualifying into their first-ever qualification on their first-ever appearance in a major league to rest with a thumping two-goal to nil win and topping the group winning all three games. Belgium in the second game against Denmark looked out of sorts in the first half and a little into the second half and also were down by a goal to nil, but then somehow they turned it around and produced flashes of brilliance to make the comeback and finally winning it by two goals to nil. Belgium have qualified, but still will not be complacent given that momentum is important going into the latter part of the tourney. Belgium were clearly coming into the tournament as favourites, but still, there were doubts on whether they’ll falter on the big stage like they have been doing the past few years. But it was all put to rest by Lukaku and co. managing to produce a clinical performance against a formidable Russian lineup. They now are facing the champions Portugal in the round of 16 which could well be the make or break scenario for the side from Belgium. 

Roberto Martinez, the coach of the Belgium National Football Team after having spent so many years in the camp would know the players in and out. He would need to produce the results nevertheless with the sort of players at his disposal with the current setup widely regarded as the golden generation of Belgium football history. Lukaku has been scoring goals for fun while the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Hazard, Meunier are all in great form. The defence is all that they need to be careful about and hope to continue with their good form.

Portugal Form and Team News

Portugal through after enough chances against France in the last game were not able to convert them into goals from open play, they needed two penalties to equalise and thus qualifying into the round of 16. Portugal like in the first game looked a bit lose and if Hungary were not able to capitalise on it then, Germany in the second game took full toll of it in the second game and handed them the worst defeat in their EURO cup history for conceding the highest number of goals. Portugal need to strap up and cannot let loose of this anymore from here on if they are to have any chance to defend their title. Portugal for most of the first game to be precise, for 80 minutes of the first game against Hungary, looked like a team lost for ideas until a huge turn of events after that which lead to a 3-0 smashing at the end. Portugal are favourites to win the cup this time with the sort of team they have but they have been quite lucky to have qualified after the performances they have put up.

Fernando Santos as coach of the Portugal national football team has been there through the transition phases while also guiding them to the coveted EURO title in 2016. He has seen enough of this team and knows in and out of the players to make decisions that will have to start showing effect sooner than later. Everyone except the mercurial Ronaldo are seemingly not in great form. The defence was made to look silly with the series of attacks from the German and French forwards and flanks.

Our Tipster’s Angle 

Belgium are favourites to win this game given the odds, but Portugal can’t be counted out before the game as well. Belgium as of the head to head stats have a very peculiar record to resolve, they are still to win against the Portugal side. They last played against each other three years ago and Martinez has converted this side into a winning machine and this match could well be the start of an upheaval from the Belgian side going forward.

Tip 1: Belgium Total Goals over 1.5

Belgium in the last ten matches across competitions like the Euros, Friendlies, World Cup qualifiers, and the UEFA Nations League have seen around seven games where they have managed to score over 1.5 goals individually. While in the last five home games that Belgium have played, they have managed to score above the above limit in three matches of those. Portugal also have conceded over 1.5 goals in both of their last two games across competitions. Belgium have also scored over the 1.5 goal line in all ten of the qualification matches which also states the goal-scoring form they are in presently. So the game between Belgium and Finland on Monday will most likely have Belgium scoring over 1.5 goals in it. The odds for Belgium total goals over 1.5 according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 2.38.

Tip 2: Total Goals over 2.5

Six of their last seven matches of Portugal across competitions have all seen over 2.5 goals scored by both teams combined. While playing away, four of their last five matches have also been the same. The head to head between the two sides have also had three of their last four matches where the total goals were over 2.5. While playing with Belgium as host, the head to head record says one of the last two games where the above statement has been put to full effect. Belgium on the other hand at home, have had three of the last five where the condition was satisfied. They across the competitions have also seen two of their last three matches were over 2.5 goals in total. So it’s quite likely that the total goals will be over 2.5. The odds for the same according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 2.04.


A potential title challenger could be in the reckoning after this game. Both teams have their respective demons to put to rest with a win in this game. We are in for a tantalising battle between two top teams in world football. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1. Belgium goals over 1.5 @2.38
  2. Total goals over 2.5 @ 2.04
