France beat Belgium 1-0 thanks to a lucky goal, thereby winning the right to enter the quarter-finals of EURO 2024.

France and Belgium are among the teams that have made the worst use of their chances in the EURO 2024 group stage (taking many shots, scoring few goals). Meeting in the round of 16, the two teams continued to make the audience impatiently wait for a goal. The place in the quarter-finals was only decided by an own goal at the end of the match.

 

The French team dominated the first half. According to Whoscored data, the current world runner-up team had 9 shots, surpassing their opponents (1 shot).

However, in reality, most of the chances created by the French team were not very threatening. The only shot on target among them was a shot from outside the box by Antoine Griezmann.

 

Kylian Mbappe tried to make his mark with his runs from the left flank but to no avail. The French captain did not have many opportunities to combine with his teammates to create chances.

The game did not change much in the second half. France continued to press the field while Belgium focused on defense.

Mbappe and his teammates shot a lot but rarely troubled the opposing goalkeeper. On the other hand, the Belgian team only had 2 chances from Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne’s shots, both of which were blocked by the French goalkeeper.

The highlight of the match came in the 85th minute. Kolo Muani’s shot hit defender Jan Vertonghen’s leg and went into the net. The opening goal of the match was counted as an own goal by the Belgian player.

There was not enough time left for Belgium to turn the situation around. A lucky moment at the end of the match helped France qualify for the quarter-finals of EURO 2024.
