Recap

Spain eliminated the hosts Germany with a dramatic 2-1 victory, scoring a buzzer-beater in overtime to secure their spot in the semi-finals of the EURO for the second consecutive tournament (and fifth overall). Despite their success, Spain has shown some vulnerabilities. They lacked the creativity seen in previous matches and faced defensive challenges against strong opposing forwards. Nevertheless, they are determined to reach their first EURO final since 2012. Coach de la Fuente has some issues due to the suspensions of key defenders Le Normand (5/0) and Carvajal (4/1), while important midfielder Pedri (4/0) is injured.

France may not have scored again in regular time, but they were more accurate in the penalty shootout than Portugal and qualified for the semi-finals. At least the players proved to be good penalty takers, scoring all five against the Portuguese goalkeeper Costa. Their offensive problem is significant; Mbappe hasn’t terrorized opposing defenses, and Griezmann is not performing well either. This is their fifth appearance in the EURO semi-finals, and the previous 3 out of 4 didn’t end in 90 minutes.

Given the current form and historical trends, a draw in regular time seems the most logical outcome for this clash.
