QF: Wales vs Belgium (July 1st)

Post by Jay29 on Sun Jun 26, 2016 9:46 pm

Wales are perhaps the weakest side on paper left in the tournament and benefited from facing an even weaker team in the previous round. Bale, though, is a proven match-winner.

Belgium have recovered from their opening game defeat against Italy, dispatching Ireland and now Hungary with ease. Hazard has found form again.

Wales picked up four points against Belgium in qualifying by parking the bus. Expect them to do the same again.

QF: Wales vs Belgium (July 1st)

Belgium comfortably beat Hungary after finishing 2nd in their group.

Wales beat Northern Ireland 1-0 after topping their group.

Examining the star players, Bale has been remarkably efficient throughout the tournament while Hazard massively stepped up against Hungary and gave one of the best individual performances of the tournament.

I sense a close match with Belgium edging it.

Belgium will destroy, IMO. Wales party ends here. 2-0 Belgium.

I dont see Wales making much impact in this game. Belgium all the way , now since players are hitting their peak at right time.

2-1 Wales. Belgium won't be able to defend Bale/Allen.

Keep in mind Northern Ireland were no slouches either. They lost only 1-0 to Poland and Germany and beat Ukraine 2-0. Very impressive showing from them this tournament regardless of style.

Wales getting this far is an accomplishment in itself. They have nothing to lose at this point. The pressure is all on Belgium, who have been under the microscope from the beginning and rightfully so.

I also think Belgium might just be a bit much for Wales, but if the scoreline is respectable, I think that benefits the Welsh more than the Belgians.

Wales drew and won Belgium when they met in the qualifiers hmm

I think it'll be a close game. Belgium still don't work well as a unit and their defense is suspect.

Pretty sure Iceland's the weakest side on paper.

On topic, the victor will very likely be Belgium only because Wales won't be able to defend the Belgian attack. Same will happen with Belgium when it comes to defending the Welsh attack but I think Belgium have a bit more remedy to Bale than Wales to the Belgian forwards.

Such an underrated guy. Probably Belgium's best player.

Allen is so good. So good. Wales has been the much better side. Belgium look clueless on defence ATM.

Great game so far. Wales probably deserve to be ahead. They've played so well this tournament absolutely pumped for them. Hope they can keep it up in the second half.

Meh. Wales are getting overrun now. Hope they don't need to concede another one before they wake up again.
