Our match prediction:
Switzerland and Belgium, the two teams that will participate at the Euro 2016 finals, square off against each other at Stade de Geneve on Saturday afternoon. The Rossocrociati aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Republic of Ireland and Bosnia & Herzegovina, but beating the star-studded Red Devils is easier said than done. Midfielder Granit Xhaka, who is on the verge of signing a deal with Arsenal, will be the man to watch in the home side and he is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. The Belgians, on the other hand, head into the game following a 2-1 loss to Portugal and considering that they will go for a win in Saturday’s football match, we predict that Eden Hazard and his teammates are going to find the net against Switzerland. Taking everything into account, both teams to score bet appears on the cards.
Highligted Player (Lukaku):
Romelu Lukaku Bolingoli, born on 13th of ay 1993 is a Belgian player with roots form Congo. Lukaku played for several youth teams before he got picked up by RSC Anderlecht. After playing for only 2 seasons for Anderlecht Chelsea picked him up for around12 million euro.

The biggest achievement of Lukakui is winning the Eerste klasse in Belgium and the English FA Cup. With his strength and goal scoring abilities Lukaku can be considered as one of the deadliest strikers of the world. Nicknames for Lukaku are Big Rom and the Tank.
Highlighted Team (Switzerland):
While missing the first ever World Cup, Switzerland played at next four, reaching the quarter-finals on three occasions, but they were unable to repeat the success in next six appearances. Nati reached the first knockout stage in 1994, 2006 and 2014, but they couldn’t make the next step. When it comes to their European Championship appearances, the situation is even worse, as the team only qualified for the 1996, 2004 and 2016 finals, while they automatically qualified for the 2008 tournament together with co-hosts Austria. Switzerland national team of late have profited from the multicultural environment, as they appear to have closed the gap behind top European sides and also adopted a more adventurous style of play. The new generation is probably the most talented yet, with players like Xherdan Shaqiri, Granit Xhaka, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Ricardo Rodriguez and Valon Behrami all held in high regard. Nati now have a unique chance to try and reach the closing stages of a major tournament as their key men are either at their peak or will be there in the next couple of years.
