Semi Final I, FIFA World Cup 2018 match | Match Day -25
FIFA World Cup 2018
BEL vs FRA Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
What a spectacular event it has been from Day 1 when Russia thrashed Saudi Arabia to kick off the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia. Now as we are heading to the last stage of the biggest football gala, it remains only a matter of time for any of the top four teams lifting the world cup. The first semi final clash will be see the golden generation of Belgium taking on a star thudded France.
Both these teams knocked out South American football giants in the quarter finals to reach here making it the first ever world cup where no South American team are not in the final four. France would come to this match with great confidence as they managed to keep a clean sheet in their last game against Uruguay but it was not due to great defending but because of the lack of execution of the Uruguayans which decided the game for them. France would aim to repeat their 20 years old heroics when they won the FIFA World Cup 1998 at home soil. France won their first two matches in the group stages and then came to a dead rubber against Denmark. They gave their best performance however against Jorge Sampoli’s Argentina and won the match 4-3 to meet Uruguay in the Quarters. Now they would face Belgium and one of the concerns would be France’s defense because Belgium’s attacking lineup has proved to be one of the lethal attacking lineups in this world cup.
On the other hand, the Belgians are already on their way to make history matching their history best of reaching the Semi finals in Mexico in 1986 and now they would want to go to the final sitting on the shoulders of their golden generation. Belgium also won all of their group matches to meet Japan in the Round of 16. It was a great comeback by the Belgians after going two goals down, they picked themselves up to find the winner in the last 10 seconds of the additional minutes after the ninety. Restricting all Japanese hopes for going to the extra time. And they carried on their form in their quarter final against Brazil as they wrapped up the five times world champions by 2-1 thanks to an own goal by Fernandinho in the early part of the game that shifted Brazil to the backseat. Belgium may be very ferocious when it comes to attacking but their defense has it’s holes and it is expected that both the teams will score in this game.
FIFA World Cup 2018, Semi final I is to be played at St. Petersburg Stadium, at 1900 hours in Local time. A thrilling game awaits everyone on Match Day 25 for everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

Romelu Lukaku will lead the Belgian attack with the support of Kevin de Bryune and Eden Hazard.

Corentin Tolisso is expected to start the game from the bench. Oliver Giroud will once again lead the attack after teaming up with Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann. Djibril Sidibe remains a doubt for this game for the France side because of his injury concern.

Draw – 2
France –Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann
Belgium – Kevin de Bryune and Eden Hazard
Take a look at some statistics:
- Belgium remain undefeated in their last 10 FIFA World Cup matches
- France has won their six of their last 7 FIFA World Cup matches
- This is Belgium’s second world cup semi final appearance. In their first time, they were knocked out by Argentina in the semis in 1986
France’s Blaise Matuidi is available after a ban and is set to return in place of fellow midfielder Corentin Tolisso, who deputised against Uruguay. Striker Olivier Giroud will keep his starting spot despite not registering a shot on target at this World Cup.
For Belgium, Right wing-back Thomas Meunier is suspended, so a defensive reshuffle will be required. Head coach Roberto Martinez changed tactics against Brazil, abandoning his favoured 3-4-2-1 formation. Centre-forward Romelu Lukaku spent much of that game on the right flank, with midfielder Kevin de Bruyne at times operating as a false nine. It remains to be seen whether Martinez repeats that ploy against the French.
BEL vs FRA Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
France didn’t look all set in their victory against Uruguayans but they did manage to come out with a victory and they clearly have the potential to shift the gears in a game. They have a star thudded team and also have all the experience they need to keep their nerves still in a semi final. Belgium may start this game as the favourites as the beat Brazil in the quarters but France is most likely to come up on top in this game.
