Today’s football betting tips features the second of the Nations League semi-final matches, as Belgium face France in a big showdown.

That’s the big highlight of the day and the other two selections come from World Cup qualifiers from a little further afield.

We turn attention to some of the international fixtures from the Asian and South American qualifiers.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Belgium v France

Football betting tips today starts with the big clash in the Nations League.

It’s Belgium v France for a place in the final.

The more convincing form does come from Belgium who could just shade this clash in Turin.

Belgium have won their three matches since losing to Italy at Euro 2020.

The Red Devils have tallied nine goals in their last three last matches, with two clean sheets.

The last time they clashed with Les Bleus, Belgium lost 1-0 at the 2018 World Cup.

France have drawn five of their last six matches (90 minutes).

That includes some disappointing returns from them against the likes of Bosnia, Switzerland and Hungary.

So it hasn’t quite been happening for the World Champions who did win their most recent match, a 2-0 success against Finland.

They are obviously a talented squad, but it’s not quite been clicking.

Football Betting Picks Today: Saudi Arabia v Japan

Football betting for today moves on to one of the more competitive-looking World Cup qualifiers from the AFC.

Saudi Arabia have secured back to back wins against Vietnam and Oman in the World Cup qualifiers.

So they appear to be shaping up pretty well.

This is their first meeting with Japan since a 1-0 loss to them in the 2019 Asian Cup.

Saudi Arabia have lost three of their last four against the Blue Samurai.

They failed to get on the scoresheet in any of those defeats.

Japan suffered a loss to Oman in their opening qualifier, a shock result for them there.

But they responded with a decent 1-0 success over China to follow up and get back on track, dominating possession in the fixture.

This one just looks too close to call, but on paper, Japan are the stronger of the teams, but we have to swing towards a share of the spoils.

Draw at 2/1

Football Betting Tips for Today: Uruguay v Colombia

It’s over to the CONMEBOL for the next of today’s football betting tips.

There doesn’t look as if there is going to be too much between these two on the night.

Uruguay have opened their qualification campaign with 7 points from 9.

It’s been back to back home victories over Bolivia and Ecuador from them.

These two nations met at the Copa America in early July and played out a 0-0 draw.

Bet at 888sport

That leaves Uruguay with an undefeated run of four matches against Los Cafeteros (W2 D2).

Colombia are not in bad shape at the moment with a W2 D4 record from their last six.

They haven’t kept a clean sheet in five, however.

Their World Cup campaign has seen them draw with Bolivia and Paraguay on the road, before claiming a home success over Chile.

This has all the hallmarks of being a very tight clash. But home advantage may just swing it.
