Winner Prediction: Netherlands 2:0 Czech Republic
Belgium VS Portugal
This is one of those matches that’s should be exciting. Belgium, the number one football team in the world by FIFA, is facing current holders of the Euro title – Portugal. So far, Belgium has had a perfect score at this championship, winning all 3 matches in the group stage. On the other hand, Portugal has managed to qualify to the Round of 16 as a 3rd-placed in their group. Still, this is not going to be a breeze for the Belgians.
Overall, it a very difficult match to predict as things can go either way. Bookies online give Belgium an upper hand but only slightly. On Gamdom, the odds are 2.40 for Belgium and 3.15 for Portugal. However, this match can easily end in a draw and penalties might be required to settle who is moving to the next Euro2020 phase.
