Belgium vs Portugal Betting PreviewBelgium topped the Group B with nine points, scoring seven goals and conceding just once. They opened their Euro 2020 campaign with a 3-0 win over Russia and also beat Denmark (2-1) and Finland (2-0). Roberto Martinez's men are now unbeaten in the past 12 games, winning 10 of them and drawing just two. The latest two direct encounters between these sides were friendly internationals. In 2018 the match ended in a goalless draw, while two years before, the Red Devils were beaten 2-1.
Portugal drew 2-2 with France on Wednesday to secure second spot in the group of death, since Germany drew against Hungary by the same scoreline. Prior to that they scored three late goals against Hungary (3-0) and suffered a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Germany. They score many goals lately, 11 over the past four games, but also concede a lot (six in the three group stage matches). Cristiano Ronaldo is the current top goalscorer, as he has netted five times in this tournament to move alongside Iran’s Ali Daei on a record 109 international goals.
Best OddsBelgium are slight favourites: 31/20 with STS. The draw is backable at 23/10 with Betvictor while Portugal are 43/20 to win with 10Bet.

Probable Line-UpsBelgium (3-4-2-1): Courtois; Alderweireld, Denayer, Vertonghen; Meunier, Tielemans, Witsel, T. Hazard; K. De Bruyne, E. Hazard; Lukaku
Kevin De Bruyne looks 100% recovered after plenty of minutes played in the third game, and should also be joined by Axel Witsel in midfield. Thorgan Hazard is fit again and is likely to start as left wing back, with Thomas Meunier on the other flank. Romelu Lukaku will spearhead the attack one again, supported by Eden Hazard, who should get the nod over Dries Mertens. The likes of Toby Alderweireld, Jason Denayer and Jan Vertonghen should form the three man backline. Timothy Castagne is out after fracturing his eye socket in the group stage.
Portugal (4-3-3): Rui Patrício; Semedo, R. Dias, Pepe, Guerreiro; D. Pereira, Sanches, Moutinho; Bernardo Silva, Ronaldo, Jota
Nelson Semedo came off injured against France last time out and it is unclear if he will feature on Sunday evening. Renato Sanches impressed again last time out and should retain his starting in the middle of the park, though William Carvalho is also pushing for a start. Bruno Fernandes could be benched again, in attempt to give the defense more protection. The usual front trio of Ronaldo, Diogo Jota and Bernardo Silva will almost surely start, although Joao Felix looks fit to play.

Belgium v Denmark Predictions
This tie could really go either way. Portugal’s defense is fragile, with so many holes, but they are talented and experienced up front (they have already won three penalties, more than any other team in the tournament). Furthermore, the Seleçao is unbeaten in the last five meetings between the two nations (W3,D2). As a result, we believe this match ould end in a draw, in which both teams will score. The 1-1 and 2-2 scorelines, of course, are our choices in the correct score market.
