Finland battled admirably against Russia, however, they inevitably came up short. The Finns are tough to break down and despite giving away multiple opportunities, they have still only conceded a single goal across the last 180 minutes. At the other end of the field, Marrku Kanerva’s side are struggling to create opportunities, and they have managed a paltry two shots on target across their last two encounters.
Belgium’s defence displayed its vulnerable side against Denmark, however, the Finns must improve their creativity if they are to spring a surprise in this contest. The Red Devils are through to the round of 16 and predictably, they’ve done it with a game to spare.
They weren’t at their best against Denmark, however, they relied on the individual brilliance of Kevin de Bruyne. The midfielder’s return to fitness is crucial to their chances and although they might rest a few key players for this contest, they should still have enough quality to win it. Finland will make it tough for them, and it’s unlikely to be a walk in the park.Belgium to WIN & Under 3.5 Goals - 10/11 Paddy Power
