Match after match Wales self-confidence and their beliefs grow more and more. They are only one victory away from top four in EURO 2016 and sensational success in their first ever appearance in European competitions. Highly motivated and with nothing to lose, they enter this match stress-less and completely relieved. They already fulfilled all pre competition expectations and everything more they achieve is a bonus. Firstly they finished first in the group. Before that they had very good qualifications and showed very good team play and high level of organization. After the group stage, in their first knockout stage match they won against Northern Ireland.
On the other side, with one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Courtois and Witzel, Hazard, De Bruyne, Lukaku in attack and defense line with Vertonghen, Vermaelen and others, Belgium for reason stands for one of the favorites to win this championship. Analyzing their play and performances so far it seems that they set their form slowly and according to their needs and opponent they are playing against. Both teams enter this match in a good run and three victories in a row. Even though Belgians are favorites in this match, for sure this match won’t be easy for them. We expect slow and calculated first half and much more action in the second half. And while Wales will play defensively waiting for a chance to score after a counterattack and leaving all the initiative to the Belgians, Belgian team will not rush. They will lead the game and control the ball but attack cautiously, focusing on long balls to their fast attackers and free kicks and breaks.
When it comes to their mutual encounters, Wales won in their last and are undefeated in their last three matches against Belgium. Their last two encounters were in qualifications for this competition and Wales got out with one victory and a draw without conceded goal. Wales vs Belgium will bring much more excitements in the second half and we expect to see lots of action and scoring chances on both sides.

Wales manager Chris Coleman: "This is another huge test and it's another in a line of challenges that we've already met. It's a great position to be in. Just because it's Belgium, there's been no dramas in our camp.
Belgium coach Marc Wilmots: "They are a side who defend really well and who have real talent on the counterattack. Now the stakes are different, this is no longer a qualification game for points. We are going out there with the semi-finals of the EURO as a prize – that is completely different."
Wales do not have fresh injury concerns before this match against Belgium. Almost all players are fully fit and all of them are highly motivated for the game.

All other players are available to play and all of them are eager to reach semifinals against Portugal.
