EURO CUP MATCH OVERVIEW

Spain’s impressive journey to the semifinals has seen them play the best football of the tournament. They’ve won every match leading up to this one, triumphing over the likes of group-stage rivals, surprise team Georgia, and hosts Germany. However, Spain faces a tough challenge with three critical players missing: Dani Carvajal, Robin Le Normand, and Pedri. Carvajal is out due to a red card, Le Normand due to yellow card accumulation, and Pedri due to an injury from a harsh tackle.

Despite these absences, Spain’s dynamic duo, Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams, are expected to step up. Betting on either to be decisive against France offers attractive UEFA Euro odds of 2.25 per euro wagered.

 

Possible Spain lineup

Unai Simón; Cucurella, Laporte, Nacho, Navas; Rodri, Fabián, Olmo; Nico Williams, Morata, Yamal.

 

France’s formidable challenge

Historically, France and Spain have met 36 times across various competitions, with Spain winning 16 times, France 13, and 7 matches ending in a draw. Their most recent official encounter was in the UEFA Nations League final, where France emerged victorious thanks to goals from Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappé.

France hasn’t lost a semifinal in a major tournament since Euro 1996, a record that includes victories in the World Cup (1998, 2006, 2018, 2022) and the Euros (2000, 2016). Although not the favorites, their odds of winning this match are set at 3.10.

Didier Deschamps is expected to maintain a strong defensive lineup. France has conceded only one goal this tournament, and that was a penalty. The midfield trio of Rabiot, Tchouaméni, and Kanté, alongside an attack featuring Griezmann, Kolo Muani, and Mbappé, will be tough to beat. Betting on Mbappé to score first stands at 6.25, while wagering on him scoring two or more goals is at 17. Olivier Giroud remains a potential game-changer, with odds of 14 for scoring the last goal.

 

Possible France lineup

Maignan; Theo Hernández, Upamecano, Saliba, Koundé; Rabiot, Tchouaméni, Kanté; Mbappé, Griezmann, Kolo Muani.

 

This thrilling semifinal clash between Spain and France promises excitement and high stakes, with plenty of opportunities to make strategic bets based on the latest UEFA Euro odds. Whether you back Spain’s resurgence or France’s consistent track record, this match is one to watch and wager on.
