The Belgium vs Italy match is going to be played at the Koning Boudewijnstadion in Brussels. The venue was also used for the UEFA Euro 2000 tournament, which was won by France after defeating Italy 1-0. As far as this game is concerned, Italy are in a much better position than their opponents when it comes to winning and making it through. However, on paper they seem like they have a lot more playmakers than they actually do so Belgium could come out on top here if they go all out from the start and hit them early!


Belgium Squad:

  • Thibaut Courtois, Goalkeeper (Chelsea) 2. Toby Alderweireld, Defender (Tottenham Hotspur) 3. Vincent Kompany, Defender (Manchester City) 4. Jan Vertonghen, Defender (Tottenham Hotspur) 5. Thomas Vermaelen, Defender (Barcelona) 6. Axel Witsel Midfielder(Zenit St Petersburg ) 7. Kevin De Bruyne Midfielder(Manchester City FC) 8 Eden Hazard Midfielder(Chelsea FC) 9 Romelu Lukaku Forward(Everton FC) 10 Dries Mertens Forward(Napoli FC) 11 Divock Origi Forward(Liverpool FC


Both teams have won two of their last three games against each other. In addition, Belgium have defeated Italy in their last two meetings, but the Azzurri have won three of the last four against Les Diables Rouges.

Belgium has had a tough start to this World Cup. They were beaten 1-0 by England and 2-0 by Portugal in their first two matches, before defeating Panama 6-1 in their third game. Belgium had an impressive qualifying campaign with an 11-1 goal difference from the ten games played between them and five others.

Italy qualified for Russia 2018 by claiming second place in Group G behind Spain with 21 points from 10 fixtures (winning six), followed by Albania who finished third on 13 points (winning four). In recent years Italy have enjoyed success at major tournaments: winning World Cups in 1934 and 1938; finishing runners up four times; winning Euro titles in 1968 (as hosts) 1969 (in Italy), 1980 (in Italy) 1990 (hosts again); finishing third twice 1970 Mexico Spain 1982 Spain 1986 Mexico 1990 Italia Euro 2016 France


Although Italy have left their mark on the history of football, and are still considered to be one of the best teams in Europe (despite their recent struggles), Belgium are favourites to win this game.

Belgium have a better squad than Italy - they are more talented, younger and their players play for bigger clubs. The Belgian players will also be able to cope with pressure better than the Italian players who often crumble under pressure at major tournaments.

The record between these two teams is not very good for Belgium but it's not as bad as people think either. You could say that Belgium have had more luck with draws than Italy or that Italy haven't performed well enough against weaker opponents like Bulgaria or Azerbaijan. It's also worth noting that Belgium haven't played any international matches since 2015 which means they won't be as rusty as usual - meaning they should perform better than usual too!

In contrast with this positive outlook towards Belgium there are many reasons why people might think otherwise:


The venue for this match is Cartama Oval. It was established in the year 1928.

Belgium and Italy meet tomorrow.

Tomorrow, Belgium and Italy meet in the quarterfinals of the World Cup. The winner will advance to face France, who won 2-0 against Uruguay today.

Belgium is expected to win this match by a wide margin and move on to face France in the semifinals. Italy has proven itself as a strong team over its past two matches, defeating Morocco 3-2 and Turkey 1-0 before losing 1-0 to Spain in extra time during group play. However, many believe that Belgium is simply too much for them at this point.

Italy’s squad features several talented players who were once part of some of Europe's best clubs: Mario Balotelli (Liverpool), Ciro Immobile (Lazio) and Lorenzo Insigne (Napoli). They also have Gianluigi Buffon in goal -- one of only four players ever with over 100 caps for their national team (alongside Claudio Marchisio).


This is a great opportunity for Belgium to get their World Cup campaign off the ground. They have faced a few setbacks in the past and it will be interesting to see how they perform against Italy. The hosts have been in good form recently and they will look to keep things going here as well.
