THEY say football's coming home but it might take a wrong turning to Paris or Brussels.
The first semi-final features France v Belgium and whoever wins will be favourites to triumph against England or Croatia on Sunday.
France and Belgium have been the tournament's most impressive sides and this could be a cracker. It's not easy to call though and no result would surprise me.
Bookies are siding with France who are 31-20 to win in 90 minutes and 4-5 at Marathonbet to qualify.
Belgium, so impressive in knocking out Brazil, are 2-1 with McBookie to triumph and to go through it's 4-5 at Marathonbet.
Both sides boast tremendous attacking threats – Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe for France and the likes of Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin de Bruyne for Belgium.
Lukaku had a great game against Brazil without scoring and it could be more of the same.
Hazard, who takes the penalties, is 8-1 at Marathonbet to net first and 3-1 to score while de Bruyne, who hit that beaut against Brazil, is 14-1 with bet365 to break the deadlock and 6-1 to net at any time.
- Over 2.5 goals
- De Bruyne to score
- Belgium to qualify
