Four Keenly Selected Thursday Matches To Win You Big

Belgium vs France

Desperate times call for desperate measures and today is no different in a match that calls for prime resilience. A top notch clash that will feature Belgium who take on France side for a mouthwatering semifinal in the UEFA Nations League. The side that emerges victorious here will face either of Spain or Italy in a final showdown.

Switzerland did cut short France's ambitious campaign in the recently played Euro's 2020 as Italy edged Belgium on a 2-1 defeat. Their focus now lies entirely on this competition with both sides positive that things will work to their favour. The big dilemma here is who will outsmart the other in a bid to seek a spot in the highly contested finals.

These two in form sides are in a very good shape ahead of this encounter with France unbeaten in the last 15 matches whilst Belgium have only conceded a single loss in a whooping run of 18 games.

Paraguay vs Argentina

A momentous event that features. In a three match winning streak and unbeaten in 22 games across different occasions, Argentina have embraced tremendous display in the recent late as winning to them has never been a challenge.

It will be an entertaining clash today for the round of 11 in the World Cup competitions with France currently taking the second spot with 18 points compared to 6th ranked hosts having garnered 11 points. They would want to fancy their chances of cruising past Paraguay in their endeavor to boost their standing. Paraguay who have managed only a single win in last 5 matches ought to be to their best if they are to get anything against the opponents today.

Uruguay vs Colombia

It's will be fascinating battle as the WC qualifying race continues with Uruguay yet to face off a Colombia side in a drive to get through to the next stages. Two sides that are of relatively similar strength will indeed lock horns with Uruguay favourites to penetrate Colombia. This is after Uruguay convincingly won 4 of the last 7 which they have been unbeaten and therefore we expect more hardwork and determination from them today as the anticipate to build up their fabulous performance.

China vs Vietnam

From a fantastic 5 match winning streak, it is Australia and Japan who halted the hosts fine form. China suffered shock and unprecedented defeats to the two sides ahead of this round of 3 in the Asian world cup group and would want to fight back for a revival to their devastating start and can only remain wishful whatsoever.

It's never a different story when it comes to their rivals as Vietnam are in a frustratingly poor form that saw them lose all the last 3 matches. We envisage a win for China who advantageously enjoy home advantage.
