Euro 2024 Group B – Spain vs France: Match Prediction, Preview, and More

Spain and France  are scheduled to square off against each other in the semi-final of the UEFA Euro 2024. The match between La Roja and Les Blues will take place at the Allianz Arena in Munich on Tuesday night. While  Luis de la Fuente’s side have been a dominating force in the tournament, Didier Deschamps’ men failed to score many goals with just three in five matches.

Spain and France have faced each other four times in the European Championship finals. In the 1996 Euro group stage clash they played a draw followed by France’s 2-1 victory in Euro 2000 quarter-final and Spain’s 2-0 win in the 2012 last eight. In 1984, France won their first-ever major trophy by defeating Spain 2-0 in the final as Michel Platini scored his record ninth goal in the tournament.

Spain vs France: Match Preview

Spain and France have squared off against each other 36 times across all competitions with La Roja winning 16 times, Les Blues winning 13 games, and five ending in draws. In their last 10 head-to-head clashes, Spain dominated France with six wins while the latter two thrice and one tied one game.

Lamine Yamal and Dani Olmo have been in a red hot form as the Barcelona youngster is the leading assist-maker in Euro 2024 with three while the RB Leipzig forward has made four goal contributions with two goals and two assists.  Spain defeated the hosts 2-1 in their quarter-final clash and ended their chance to win a record fourth title. France, on the other hand, defeated Portugal 5-3 on penalties after they played 120 minutes without a goal in the quarter-final.

Spain vs France: Match Prediction

Considering their past results and goal-scoring form, Spain are expected to score two goals in the competition while France will look to hold La Roja from scoring goals.  Luis de la Fuente’s side are currently in spectacular form as they have scored a total of 11 goals in the Euro 2024, which is joint-highest alongside Germany. Didier Deschamps’ team have been a strong force yet failed to score many goals with just three in five games. However, their defense has been spectacular with four clean sheets without a penalty shootout.
