Belgium don’t have a trophy cabinet stuffed full of winners medals. They’ve never won a major tournament (World Cup or European Championships), but enter Euro 2016 as one of the favorites and are even ranked 2nd overall in current FIFA rankings. Injury riddled of late, we don’t believe they have the depth or experience to conquer Europe. Belgium are known for recent exploits, but what of their history in the international football? Well, aside from winning the 1920 Olympic Games, there is no record of success. [+]

Belgium finished third at Euro 1972, and were runners-up in 1980, their best ever results at this tournament.

How To Make Money Betting On Belgium National Team

While Belgium may not be the first name on any pundit's lips as for who will win the European Championships, they have more of a history in the tournament than in the World Cup, having lost out only to an 88th-minute winner in the 1980 European Championships final. They were beaten by Germany in that final and you can see how unfortunate they were right here:

When it comes to Euro 2016, while they are many observers tips as 'dark horse', we have concerns about certain aspects of their play.

Their defense should  be watertight, after all, it is centered around a central partnership between Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen which has been the mainstay of a largely rock solid Tottenham Hotspur title bid during the 2015-16 season. 

However, they seem to be prone to moments of self-doubt, as evidenced here in the away match against Wales during qualification: 

Belgium may have qualified with ease against hopeless teams, but they failed to score in three hours against Wales.

Belgium will face much better teams than Wales. Italy and Ireland are by no means pushovers but Belgium are favorites to top the group at +115.

Currently, Belgium is one of the tournament favorites, +900 to win to win it all. 

We think they are a team to avoid backing. If anything presents value, it is their ability to tie games they should win, such as the 0-0 against Wales in Belgium during qualifying.

For all their talent, they struggle to really see games off against top opposition. Injuries have hamstrung this team and the diminutive Eden Hazard had a woeful season with Chelsea. His confidence must be at an all-time low.
