Why you should back Belgium 

Leandro Trossard, who plays for Arsenal of the English Premier League, had a flurry of goals near the end of the season and finished with 12 in 34 appearances for the Gunners. The 29-year-old has played for his national team since 2020 and has produced nine goals in 34 appearances. He registered goals in both friendlies earlier this month in wins over Montenegro and Luxembourg. In qualifying for this tournament, he registered goals in wins over Estonia and Azerbaijan.

Midfielder Youri Tielemans scored both of Belgium's goals in a 2-2 draw with England in March. He has played with his national team since 2016, making 67 appearances and scoring seven goals. He has played in the English Premier League since 2018-2019, including five seasons with Leicester City. He played for Aston Villa this past year. In 183 career EPL matches, Tielemans has registered 23 goals. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Slovakia

Slovakia have a balanced scoring attack with eight different players finding the net over the past two friendlies. Veteran Juraj Kucka is among the leaders of the squad, and has appeared in 107 matches since first joining the national team in 2008. He has scored 14 goals, including one in the victory over Wales on June 9. Since 2022, Kucka has played for Slovan Bratislava, a professional club in the Slovak Super Liga.

Another option on offense is midfielder Ondrej Duda. The 29-year-old plays professionally for Hellas Verona in Serie A. He has recorded 13 goals in 72 appearances since joining the Slovakian national team in 2014. His last goal for the team came in a 1-1 draw with Norway in a friendly on March 26. In 360 professional matches in his career, he has scored 47 goals in both league and tournament play. See which team to pick here.
