Belgium vs France in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals – all you need to know.
Belgium take on France in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals in Turin on Thursday 7 October at 20:45 CET.
What’s the story?
A place in Sunday’s final against Spain is the prize at stake as both these nations look to make amends for falling short at UEFA EURO 2020. Many expected France to add the European title to their world crown but their round of 16 elimination at the hands of Switzerland was one of the shocks of the tournament. Belgium went one stage further but could not get the better of eventual winners Italy in a thrilling quarter-final.
The Red Devils have used the recent European Qualifiers to blow away some of the cobwebs better than Les Bleus – though no team has a greater lead at the top of their groups then these two – but the weight of history is against Roberto Martínez’s men. France beat them in the 2018 World Cup semi-finals to make it a clean sweep of victories in the four meetings between these nations at final tournaments.
