Belgium Gaining Momentum into Round of 16

Belgium Euro 2016

One of the great stories of Euro 2016 has been that of Hungary, who has defied the odds by advancing out of the group stage and into the Round of 16. Trouble for Hungary is that their next opponent is one of the better teams in the tournament and could very well be hitting its stride as Belgium looks to continue its quest for international silverware.

SHARK BITES
  • Belgium’s Mousa Dembele is doubtful as he nurses a slight knock.
  • Romelu Lukaku leads Belgium with two goals so far.
  • Belgium has won four-straight meetings with Hungary.

Hungary is a heavy underdog to continue its storybook tournament as they are +525 at online shop Bovada. Belgium is presently -155 while the Draw is +255.

There were little-to-no expectations with this team yet they have earned their spot in the Round of 16 as group winners. The last meeting between these two sides was a 3-0 win by Belgium back in 2009.
