Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Belgium's mouthwatering meeting with Portugal on Sunday night.

Belgium vs Portugal (Sunday, 20:00)

Belgium and Portugal will battle it out for place in the last-eight of Euro 2020 when they square off in Seville on Sunday night.

The Red Devils are the number one ranked team in the world while Portugal are the defending champions, but something has to give in this heavyweight humdinger.

Tipped by many to finally conquer the continent this summer, Roberto Martinez's star-studded side sailed the group stage with a perfect nine points from nine.

Portugal, on the other hand, limped through this year's “group of death” in third spot, with their only success coming against Hungary in Group F's curtain-raiser.

As such, Belgium are favourites to triumph here but I'm going to swerve the match result market and instead head to Bet 365‘s Bet Builder.

The 5/6 (Bet 365) combination that I like the look of on Sunday night is Romelu Lukaku to have at least one shot on target, over zero match goals and over one match card.

Among the favourites to finish as the tournament's top goalscorer, Romelu Lukaku has three strikes to his name at this stage, two goals behind Sunday's rival Cristiano Ronaldo who is leading the way in the golden boot race.

However, Belgium's all-time top scorer is in the form of his life – Lukaku has scored a staggering 23 times across his last 24 international appearances – and I'm more than happy to back the powerful forward to register one shot on target here when faced with a ropey Portuguese rear-guard that has shipped six goals across their last two outings.

What's more, Belgium have made the net bulge in each of their last 33 outings while top-heavy Portugal have notched in nine of their last 11 internationals.

With that in mind, coupled with the vast amount of attacking talent that will be on the pitch during this showdown, I'll happily throw over zero match goals into the mix.

In order to boost the Bet Builder price up to 5/6 (Bet 365), I'll complete the combination with over one match card – something that has landed in each of Portugal's three Euro 2020 outings thus far.

Indeed, referee Felix Brych is a middle of the range card issuer but we're now entering the high-stakes knockout stage of the competition and both of these big hitters are bound to right up for this one as they bid to avoid an early elimination.
