Belgium face France in St Petersburg for a place in the World Cup final, it is the first time since Mexico 1986 that the Red Devils have reached the last four.

Roberto Martinez has deployed a 3-4-3 formation for the majority of his time in charge but changed to a 4-3-3 to counter the Braziianl attack, it remains to be seen whether the Spaniard reverts back to a 3-4-3 or maintains momentum by keeping with four at the back.

One thing is for sure, however, is that PSG full back Thomas Meunier is suspended for the clash with France after picking up a second booking of the competition in the win over Brazil.

There are no fresh injury concerns for Belgium so here’s how I expect them to line up against France:

Real Madrid readying £150m Hazard offer .
Real Madrid are reportedly readying a huge £150 million bid for Eden Hazard as they step up their interest in the Belgian. The Daily Mail claims that the Spanish giants will look to snap up the Belgian international this summer as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo. The latter recently joined Real Madrid in a deal believed to be worth around £100 million, giving them money to spend. The likes of Hazard, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have all been suggested as possible replacements for the Portuguese superstar. Chelsea will be desperate to keep hold of the player, but they have been unable to tie him down to a new long-term contract at Stamford Bridge. Hazard has often spoken of his desire to play for Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane in particular. However, it seems the Frenchman’s departure has now dampened his stance on a move to Spain in the near future.
