Spain v France Match Preview

Spain needed every last second to beat Germany on Friday, and counterparts France needed even more time to get the better of Portugal.

Every Last Second

And then there were four. Two of them will attempt to reach the final on Wednesday, the other two will launch their showpiece bid the night before. In Tuesday’s red corner are the tournament favourites Spain, in the blue corner are their continental counterparts, France.

The Spanish played up to the role of party-poopers on Friday night as former Newcastle player Mikel Merino would break German hearts with his last-minute goal in extra-time. By comparison, the French laboured to a shootout win over Portugal hours later.

Two differing levels of performance but offering the same prize at the end of 120 minutes toil and if Spain are the benchmark for how to perform and also get results, France are the epitome of results over performance.

Simply put, there is no right or wrong way to win a game of football, especially a game of tournament football and when the Henri Delaunay trophy is lifted by one of four remaining captains on Sunday, nobody is going to remember how they went about it.

Therefore, you can have the fearless nature of the young Spanish side, or you can have a lacklustre French side that is seemingly running on fumes these past few weeks – either outfit could make Sunday’s final, either outfit could go on to win it.

For the purists who are looking to be entertained, it is Luis de la Fuente’s team who have captured the hearts and minds as they finally break free from the shackles of tiki-taka. For the pragmatists, it is Didier Deschamp’s men that are making progress with nothing more than a gallic shrug.

A gallic shrug and not a lot else from superstar Kylian Mbappe thus far and although there is the mitigating circumstance of an injured nose and the mask he wears to protect it, the man who will be wearing Real Madrid colours next season has not been playing at a galactico level.

Of course, the criticism of Mbappe also needs to be applied to each of those that have featured in France’s attack and with them yet to score a goal from open play, you wonder if Les Blues’ luck is going to run out at the worst possible time.

Especially as Spain have scored 11 goals in their first five tournament matches and at an average of 2.2 per game being compared to France’s own shortcomings, bagging the opener on Tuesday night could be even more valuable.

But now it is time for the first of my two tips and because of those shortcomings at the sharpest part of France’s setup, I am going to back a Spain win in 90 minutes and under 2.5 goals in total – an outcome that is currently priced at 7/2 with bet365.

In addition to this, I am going to opt for a cagey opening 45 minutes where the deadlock stays unbroken. 0-0 at half time, eventually becomes 1-0 at full time for La Roja and this outcome can be found at 8/1 with bet365.
