Euro 2020 moves into the quarterfinal round Friday as Spain and Switzerland meet in the early game before tournament favorites Italy and Belgium square off in the late afternoon match.

Spain’s talented but inexperienced group will square off with a veteran Swiss outfit that pulled off a stunning comeback against the defending World Cup champions France. Italy and Belgium will feature some of the world’s top players, including Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne and Ciro Immobile.

Best Bet: Belgium to advance (+115)

Italy has been a buzzsaw in the tournament, scoring goals for fun while only conceding a solo score to Austria in extra time of its round of 16 game. Belgium has the talent to match Italy and should be able to bottle up things better than Italy’s group stage counterparts. This will be the biggest test for the Azzurri defensively. Add Belgium’s desperation to give its golden generation a title and the Red Devils are a good pick to advance.
