Favourites Italy are signifed by Saturn (Lord 1) and Mars (Lord 10).
Their opponents Belgium have just one representative, Venus (Lord 4). This is because the Moon, ruler of the 7th house is already spoken for as significator of events, and Saturn (the Moon’s dispositor) has already been claimed by Italy.
Mars on 4th cusp, so favourites Italy dominate Belgium’s hopes of victory and should have the edge in this match. However, with Venus (Lord 4) on the cusp of the 7th house, Belgium will be in fine form and will not allow an easy victory for Italy.
With a chart so similar to the Italy vs Belgium match, a similar outcome can be expected for the Iceland vs France game: Here, France are the favourites, and despite a spirited performance from Iceland, should look forward to a place in the quarter finals.
