One favorite will advance to the 2018 World Cup final, while the other will see their dreams come to an end.
Belgium is coming off a hard-fought 2-1 victory over five-time World Cup winners Brazil. It was the first time in 30 matches across all competitions that Brazil had conceded more than one goal in a game.
Belgium’s golden generation has helped the Red Devils reach the World Cup semifinals for the first time in 32 years. And Belgium enters Tuesday’s Russia 2018 semifinal on a red-hot 24-game unbeaten streak. Belgium’s attack, which has already scored five goals in two knockout stage games, is led by star striker Romelu Lukaku, who has been directly involved in 20 goals in his last 13 appearances for Belgium, scoring 17 and providing three assists.
Djibril Sidibe is France’s lone injury concern. In any case, Stuttgart’s Benjamin Pavard has been one of France’s strongest performers at right-back.
Blaise Matuidi returns from suspension and is set to replace Corentin Tolisso in the starting line-up.
France have a strong midfield that will free up attackers such as Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe to attack an open-looking Belgium side.
Olivier Giroud is likely to keep his spot up front, with Ousmane Dembele and Nabil Fekir attacking options from the bench.
