Spain vs. France Prediction on July 9, 2024

Match info

At the men’s 2024 UEFA European Football Championship in Germany, just four teams are left. France and Spain square off in the first of two semifinal matches. With some incredibly close matches, this draw piece has proven to be the hardest for the participating teams. One of the greatest matchups of the tournament thus far will take place on Tuesday night (July 9 at 9 p.m. local time) at Munich’s storied Allianz Arena.

Betting sites in Europe see Spain as the winner of Spain vs. France between 13/8 and 14/8 (2.63 and 2.75). Follow along below as we provide a game preview and match prediction.

Meeting statistics

The current form of Spain

Spain has had an incredible run to the semifinals, becoming the first team to secure a berth in the last four after it eliminated the host nation. Since Luis de la Fuente’s team has won every game in the competition thus far, the bookmakers have reduced their odds to merely 2/1 for the trophy’s lifting on July 14. But their Friday night victory over Germany was severely compromised by injuries and suspensions that left a large hole in the squad.

Pedri of Barcelona is a serious doubt following an injury he sustained early in the quarterfinal. It’s anticipated that Dani Olmo, who took Pedri’s place and was instrumental in “La Roja“ (the “Red One“) winning, will get the start. The suspensions of Robin Le Normand and Dani Carvajal will significantly hamper the Spanish defense. Nacho Fernández is probably going to stay in the starting lineup, with Alejandro Grimaldo or Jesús Navas perhaps playing right back. Mikel Merino, who was the most deserving that his team avoided a penalty shootout against Germany in the round of 8 with a last-ditch header in the 119th minute after Florian Wirtz had stunningly equalized in the closing moments of regular time, might move into midfield and Joselu or Olmo could lead the attack up front in lieu of captain Álvaro Morata, who’s suspended.

The current form of France

Despite criticism of its conservative playing style, Didier Deschamps’s France has demonstrated consistency. An arduous goalless quarterfinal draw through 120 minutes of the match with Portugal won’t go far in allaying French fans’ concerns about Deschamps and his unfavorable style of play during the UEFA Euro 2024 since his wards haven’t yet scored a goal in open play. But now, after four tournaments, they are just one game away from their third major final.

In contrast to Spain, “Les Bleus” (the “Blues”) have Adrien Rabiot back from suspension, therefore their roster is nearly full. He might rejoin the squad in place of Aurélien Tchouaméni. After being knocked out against Portugal in extra time, Kylian Mbappé is anticipated to be ready for the semifinal. When Deschamps sticks with his tried-and-true starting lineup, players like Eduardo Camavinga and Randal Kolo Muani, who were given opportunities in the previous game, can find themselves back on the bench. Although he performed admirably coming as a sub against Portugal, Ousmane Dembélé might see a similar role against Spain.

Head-to-head

Spain has a slight advantage in head-to-head duels with France, earning 16 wins and losing 13 games. Seven times have these two played a draw. In the UEFA Nations League 2021 final, France defeated Spain in their most recent match, and it also eliminated Spain from the 2006 FIFA World Cup and Euro 2000. In contrast to Spain, which has only defeated France once in a major event, France also defeated “La Roja” in the Euro 1984 final.

Match analytics

Throughout the competition at the Euro 2024, Spain has stood out as the squad that excels in all aspects of the game. However, injuries and bans will put their squad depth to the test. The ability of France to counterattack and play strong defense could prove crucial in this match. We anticipate a close contest. Although there’s a chance that extra time or penalties will be needed, Spain’s performance in this Euro makes it difficult to overlook. We predict Spain to win by a slim margin, despite the absence of some key players. France should score at least one goal given the forced starting XI of Spain, but it won’t prevail, in our opinion.
