Historical facts

Belgium (or the Red Devils) have recently reached a peak form and are one of the leaders in FIFA’s world rankings. Marc Wilmots’ team is among the favorties to win Euro 2016 and we’re quite sure they can reach the semi-finals – otherwise it would feel like a huge disappointment for a nation that breeds plenty of talent off the production line. Let’s see how this information can help with Belgium Euro 2016 fixtures.

Where to bet?

2014 FIFA World Cup saw Belgium reach the quarter-finals but after that the team only lost twice since the narrow reverse against Argentina. Experts believe that if Belgium manages to make a great tournament in France, they might be able to deliber that sparkling performance the team seems to have been building up to for some years. This year's championship is their third since 1980, and they finished runners-up up at that time. What else can help you assess the best Belgium Euro 2016 betting odds?

If you're looking for Belgium Euro 2016 betting odds, this is where you should be. Belgium missed major tournaments for 12 years but managed to qualify for the FIFA World Cup in 2014. In addition to this, their FIFA ranking earned them seeded status for the finals draw - they reached the last 8 teams.

Marc Wilmots' side had some great times since that point as Belgium topped the qualifying section last year. The team hopes to match the achivements - or even better - of previous selections. As we already mentioned, Belgium were runners-up at EURO 1980 and they also managed to grab a 4th place at the 1986 World Cup.

Summing it up, Belgium is a team which has firmly got back among the elite European nations, ending a three-decade wait. Even though Belgium were regulars during the UEFA European Championships in the 70s and early 80s, they just didn't have the spark to make it through the final and lift that sought-after throphy.

If you are ready to bet, know that we have a quality aggregate with the best Belgium EURO odds.

The Red Devils only managed to reach group stage twice since then - in 2000 and 1984. Euro 2012 saw a young team - a new wave - which was too inexperienced to recover from defeats in the first two Group A matches so they finished 3rd, just 2 points shy of Turkey.

Memorable European Championship matches

22nd June 1980: Belgium vs West Germany 1-2, 1980 UEFA European Championship final - Rene Vandereycken transformed a penalty into a goal and Horst Hrubesch marked the decisive goal.

17th June 1972: Hungary vs Belgium 1-2, 1972 UEFA European Championship - Paul van Himst and Raoul Lambert scored goals that got Belgium third place in the event.

13rd May 1972: Belgium vs Italy 2-1, 1972 UEFA European Championship - Van Himst helped Belgium make it to the finals.

The Question

Will Romelu Lukaku play? He was always replaced by Christian Benteke and Wilmots might not prefer him in this tournament, but he had an outstanding season with Everton. It seems that he might actually leave the English team for another club but Belgium just needs him - and he should play his best. Benteke had a frustrating yeat with Liverpool - mostly because of Divock Origi.

All in all, Belgium have some great attackers but they don't seem in perfect nick.
