Belgium will try to continue its dominance in the tournament when it takes on Finland in Saint Petersburg on Monday in its final Group B match at the 2020 European Championships. Belgium is the world's top-ranked team but wants a major trophy to show for it, and it is a deep, talented squad. It has clinched a spot in the knockout round and has won both its games in the tournament. Finland needs a win to secure a spot in the next round but could move on with a draw. Belgium comes in off a 2-1 win against Sweden on Thursday, while Finland suffered a 1-0 setback to Russia on Wednesday.

Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET. William Hill Sportsbook lists Belgium as a -300 favorite (risk $300 to win $100) in its latest Finland vs. Belgium odds from William Hill Sportsbook, while the over-under is set at 2.5.

Why you should back Belgium

Finland is the 54th-ranked team in the world and has lost four of its last five matches. The Belgians could rest some key players in the group-stage finale, but it has plenty of talent in reserve. And Kevin De Bruyne, the world's best midfielder, should be leading the way as he works back to fitness following minor facial surgery. De Bruyne came on in the second half against Sweden and immediately impacted the outcome. He set up Thorgan Hazard's goal to tie it with a master class inside the box and closed out the Danes with a goal in the 80th minute.

Hazard is not making the trip because of a minor injury, but older brother Eden Hazard should play a key role Monday. The star of a third-place run at the 2018 World Cup has dealt with injuries with Real Madrid but has 30 goals with the national team. Romelu Lukaku, who has 10 goals and three assists in nine Belgium matches in 2021, also will push for a start as he seeks to finish as the tournament's top scorer. Even with a second-choice squad, the Belgians can be dominant, as it proved in an 8-0 victory against Belarus in a recent World Cup qualifier.

Why you should back Finland 

The teams have not met since 2016, but the Finns are on a seven-game unbeaten run against Belgium. That includes a win and a draw in Euro qualifying in 2007, but Finland is in the group stage of the event for the first time. With its first win in a major tournament in the books, Finland will now be fired up to advance. Belgium won't field its preferred 11, so the Finns should be able to compete. Finland held 24th-ranked Ukraine to a 1-1 draw in World Cup qualifying in March and beat reigning world champion France 2-0 in a November friendly, so it could pull off a surprise.       

Finland's hopes center on Norwich City's Teemu Pukki and Union Berlin's Joel Pohjanpalo. Pukki scored 10 of the team's 16 goals in qualifying and was the top scorer as the Canaries won the English Championship. Pohjanpalo has the only goal in the group stage. His header against Denmark was his third goal in as many games and his 10th in international competition.
