Finland vs Belgium: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview | Euro 2020

Finland will look to book their spot in the Euro 2020 knockout rounds when they face Belgium in Saint Petersburg on Monday at 8pm (UK time).

Finland vs Belgium: Predictions

Playing in their first-ever major tournament, Finland pulled off a huge shock in their opening game by beating Scandanavian rivals Denmark 1-0. They followed that up with a 1-0 defeat to Russia but came close to taking a share of the points there, too.

They face a Belgium side with six points already on the board, meaning there’s a chance of Roberto Martinez resting some key players. Finland will look to take advantage of any complacency or lack of sharpness from incoming players to pick up a point that would send them into the round-of-16.
