EURO 2024 semi-final preview: Spain v France

Spain will be hoping to edge closer to a fourth European title when they face France in the semi-finals of EURO 2024 on Tuesday night at Munich’s Allianz Arena.

La Furia Roja shattered German hearts on Friday when they beat the hosts 2-1 in extra time to secure their passage to the last four.

Despite being rallied by their explosive home supporters, Germany fell behind soon after the interval when Dani Olmo scored for Spain.

However, Florian Wirtz sparked wild celebrations when he equalised for Germany with a sensational 89th-minute strike.

A breathtaking encounter, the tie was settled when Mikel Merino scored with a header deep in extra time to send Spain to the semi-finals.

France secured their passage to the last four after beating Portugal 5-3 in post-match penalties in Hamburg on Friday night.

Goalless after more than 120 minutes, the turning point of the shootout came when Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix missed his penalty, with everyone else from both sides scoring.

It was a deflating result for one of the most talented soccer teams in the world, worsened by the fact that it was Cristiano Ronaldo’s last appearance at a major tournament.

Although none of their players have scored from open play in this tournament, France remain in the hunt for their third European Championship title.

Spain v France team news

Dani Carvajal misses Spain’s semi-final after receiving two yellow cards against Germany, while Robin Le Normand is also suspended after picking up two bookings in two different matches.

Pedri will miss the remainder of the competition after sustaining a serious knee injury against Germany, while Nacho Fernandez and Ayoze Perez may yet again be glued to the bench due to different knocks.

Meanwhile, Adrien Rabiot returns for France after serving a one-match ban, while Kylian Mbappe is expected to lead Les Bleus despite being substituted against Portugal after hurting his already-broken nose.

Spain v France EURO 2024 predictions

Whereas Spain are dynamic and entertaining, France are dull and uninspiring. As such, it is no surprise that online bookmakers have La Furia Roja slated as +200 outright favourites to lift the trophy.

France have laboured for goals in Germany, scoring just thrice in the tournament — once from a penalty and twice through own goals. Given Spain’s defensive discipline, the top EURO 2024 betting sites are paying -138.89 for only one side to score in the match.

Considering how this fixture has yielded few goals in six of the last seven meetings, soccer betting sites are offering -166.67 for the match to have under 2.5 goals.

Spain have won five of their last seven games against France. Back them for the win at +166 with Bovada.
