Spain vs France

Spain-vs-France-euro2024Spain meet France at the Allianz Arena in Munich for the first Euro 2024 semi-final on Tuesday night. The Spanish made it to this stage via an extra-time victory over hosts Germany in the quarter-finals. It looked like Dani Olmo won the game, but Florián Wirtz’s late equaliser sent the game into extra time. Penalties were looming before Mikel Merino scored a dramatic late winner to see Spain progress and Germany crash out. Los Rojos have been the most impressive team in the tournament up to this point and are many people’s favourites for the title.

France’s progression to the semi-finals was just as dramatic as Spain’s. A tense and closely fought match with Portugal ran the entire regulation 90 minutes and an additional 30 minutes of extra time. Penalties were needed to separate the sides, and France was inch-perfect with all five of their spot kicks to send Cristiano Ronaldo and company home from the tournament. They’ve not been dazzling by any means, but they’ve gotten this far and will fancy their chances of getting to a second consecutive major international final. Perhaps this is the moment for Kylian Mbappe to shine.

The bookmakers are struggling to separate these but they do make Spain the very slight favourites to win it in 90 minutes. We’re doubtful that this one will be decided within the regulation time, as all of France’s games have only accumulated four goals in total up to this point. This will be close, so we’re tipping up the draw in the match result market with a saver on the 0-0 correct score. This could go to a penalty shootout; in that case, our tip is for Spain to progress on penalties.
