Spain vs France

, KO: 20:00 Jul 9, 2024, Allianz Arena
France

FIGHTING it out for a place in the final of Euro 2024, Spain and France go toe-to-toe at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night.

The winner of this heavyweight showdown will face either the Netherlands or England in Sunday’s grand finale at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.

Spain secured their spot in the last four with a dramatic 2-1 extra-time win over Germany on Friday evening, bringing up two bets for our man Andy in the process.

Having survived a real scare to seal their place in the semi-finals, Luis de la Fuente’s side now face another stern test against France.

Didier Deschamps’ men advanced to the final four of Euro 2024 following a 5-3 penalty shootout win over Portugal on Friday night.

Les Bleus, somewhat remarkably, have reached the last four of the competition without scoring a single goal from open play.

How the bookies view it: Spain to reign supreme

Despite failing to defeat Germany inside 90 minutes, Spain are 8/5 (Betfred) favourites to claim top honours against France on Tuesday night.

France are 2/1 (Betfred) outsiders while a second successive stalemate involving Les Bleus can also be backed at 2/1 with the same bookmaker.

An alternative angle of attack that holds appeal when making use of the Bet Builder feature is the 4/5 (Betfred) formula of France Double Chance and Under 3.5 Goals. This combination would have clicked in each of France's five matches on route to the semi-final stage.

Head to head: Little to separate semi-finalists

Overall, the pair have crossed paths on 36 occasions, with Spain having a slight edge on account of their 16 victories. France have 13 wins to their name, while the other seven meetings have ended all square.

The two sides last came up against each other in the 2021 Nations League final, with Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe goals guiding France to the trophy.

Players to watch: Olmo on Song

Dani Olmo scored one and set up another in Spain’s 2-1 quarter-final win over Germany. The RB Leipzig man will attract plenty of attention from anytime goalscorer bettors on Tuesday night at a tempting 4/1 on Betfred.

Broken nose victim Kylian Mbappe has yet to hit top form at Euro 2024. The French captain heads the anytime goalscorer betting at 2/1 with Betfred.

Predicted line-ups

After falling foul of the referee on Friday evening, Spanish duo Dani Carvajal and Robin Le Normand will miss out on Tuesday night due to suspension, with the former being dismissed against Germany for a second bookable offence.

Adrien Rabiot severed a one game suspension for France against Portugal on Friday night and could come back into the starting XI against Spain.

Spain: Simon: Navas, Nacho, Laporte, Cucurella; Olmo, Rodri, Ruiz: Yamal, Morata, Williams

France: Maignan; Kounde, Saliba, Upamecano, Hernandez; Kante, Tchouameni, Rabiot; Griezmann; Kolo Muani, Mbappe

Anything else catch the eye?

Bundling up both Jesus Navas and Theo Hernandez each to commit a foul will bring about an eye-catching 4/5 Bet Builder on Betfred.

38-year-old Navas is expected to deputise at right-back for the suspended Dani Carvajal and he looks a strong contender to commit at least one foul given that his direct opponent will be France speed merchant Kylian Mbappe.

As for Theo Hernandez, he will have just as tough a job keeping tabs on Spanish boy wonder Lamine Yamal, who has drawn an average of just under one foul per-game at Euro 2024 so far.

Betfred boosted odds for Spain v France

With the first semi-final getting closer, Betfred has prepared a few price boosts for specific markets, so let's take a closer look at this.

The first market with odds boosted from 5/1 to 6/1 is for Spain to Win in 90 Minutes & Both Teams to Score. While the boost is nice, with France struggling to score goals, we probably would skip this bet.

Meanwhile, there are also a couple of boosts available for Anytime Goalscorer market, for Kylian Mbappe (from 2/1 to 5/2) and Alvaro Morata (from 9/4 to 11/4). We prefer these boosts even if they aren't as generous as the first one, but both of these bets also include goals scored in extra time and that's an extra chance for the bet to get in.

In addition to these boosts, Betfred also ahs a #PickYourPunt Builder Boosts, offering better odds on pre-selected bet builders:

  • Griezmann, Mbappe & Yamal 1+ Shots On Target Each In 90 Mins: 4/1>>5/1
  • Mbappe 2+ Shots On Target, Olmo 1+ Shots On Target And Each Team 4+ Corners In 90 Mins: 8/1>>9/1
