World Cup Russia semi-finals matchup - Belgium vs. France - Bet on it!One of the World Cup 2018 semi-final matches has now been set, as France will battle Belgium.

Heading into the tournament, France was seen as one of the favourites to win it all, while Belgium was considered a strong dark horse candidate. As favourites fell across the tournament, France remained strong, finishing at the top of their group and then looking impressive in their Round of 16 and quarter-final games.

Belgium, on the other hand, has suffered a couple of scares, as they very nearly lost to Japan in the Round of 16. Many were expecting that they would fall to Brazil in the quarters, though Belgium rallied with a strong effort and held Brazil off in the second half.

This sets up a semi-final between Belgium and France, with the winner moving on to the finals to face one of Croatia, Russia, England or Sweden. These are all winnable games for both Belgium and France, so the winner could very well end up as the winner of the tournament.
