Belgium and France will meet in a remake of their 2018 World Cup semifinal in Russia which saw Didier Deschamps' squad book their final against Croatia. Much has changed since then, including disappointing Euro 2020 showings on both sides, but the two have not met since and revenge will be in the air for Roberto Martinez and his men.

Here is how you can watch the match and what to know:

Viewing information

Date: Thursday, Oct. 7 | Time: 2:45 p.m. ET
Location: Allianz Stadium (Juventus) -- Turin, Italy
TV: ESPN2 | Live stream: WatchESPN  
Odds: Belgium +210; Draw +210; France +145 (via Caesars Sportsbook)


Belgium: The Red Devils continue to march towards the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and have a nine-point cushion in Group E. With that sort of advantage, they can really focus on this final four with a view to sealing a Nations League title which is the least that such a talented group of players deserves.

France: Les Bleus are in a strange path of form at present with just one win from their last six across all competitions. Despite that, the French are still comfortable in Group D with a seven-point lead over Ukraine and Finland. These games potentially could help the world champions gets back to their best against some of Europe's finest.


The Belgians to take revenge for 2018 with a narrow win. The French just feel too clunky under Deschamps right now and their form reflects the disjointed nature of their performances. Pick: Belgium 2, France 1.
