Belgium may not be as strong as in previous years, but they should still have a solid chance to reach another quarterfinal.

Match Stats

Belgium

Belgium’s recent form has been rock solid. They have won eight and drawn five of their last 13 matches and won their qualifying group. Domenico Tedesco’s squad comprises a nice blend of youth and experience, with the likes of Manchester City superstar Kevin De Bruyne and record national team goalscorer Romelu Lukaku still producing top-level performances at this level. 

Belgian fans are unsure whether the quality will remain beyond this group of experienced players. The next generation of Belgian players doesn’t seem as talented as the most recent. As such, this may be the last chance for Belgium’s self-proclaimed “Golden Generation” to win a major trophy. 

In their four warm-up games, Belgium drew 0-0 in Ireland with the Republic and then drew 2-2 at Wembley against England. However, in their most recent warm-up fixtures, they comfortably beat Montenegro 2-0 and, most recently, Luxembourg 3-0.


Slovakia

Slovakia manager Francesco Calzona can be rightly pleased with how his team qualified for the finals, finishing second to Portugal in Group J. They have won an impressive eight of their last dozen games, albeit mostly against teams ranked in the middle-to-lower places in the FIFA rankings. 

Calzona made a big call ahead of the tournament, leaving their most experienced striker Robert Mak out of the squad. PSG defender Milan Skriniar is captain, and he and Napoli anchorman Stanislav Lobotka form the team's foundation. Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka is the first choice in goal. Winger Leo Sauer (18), who had a breakthrough season at Feyenoord, is one to watch.

After losing 2-0 to Austria and then drawing 1-1 with Norway in March, Slovakia bounced back to record two 4-0 wins in their final two Euro 2024 warm-up fixtures, beating San Marino in Austria and then Wales at home in their last friendly fixture.
