Spain have won all five matches so far in the tournament

It’s time for another European classic as Spain and France are set to battle it out in the clash of continental heavyweights in the first Euro 2024 semi-final.

The match kicks off on Tuesday evening in Munich. Can La Roja continue their brilliant run and record their sixth successive win in the competition?

  • Spain have won all five matches so far in the tournament.
  • La Furia Roja won 15 of the last 19 outings under Luis de la Fuente.
  • France are yet to score an open-play goal at the Euro 2024.
  • Nico Williams has been one of the vital pieces of Spain’s attack so far in the competition.

Spain are the only team with wins in all five matches at the 2024 Euro so far. No nation has ever won six straight games at the European Championship in the past.

Super-sub Dani Olmo made the difference for La Roja in a 2-1 extra-time victory over Germany on Friday. The RB Leipzig midfielder delivered a goal and an assist in the quarter-final.

France were far less impressive en route to the semi-final. They are yet to score a goal from open play at the Euro.

Les Bleus advanced past Portugal, beating them in a penalty shootout after a goalless draw in 120 minutes of action in the quarter-final.

Spain vs France Predicted Lineups and Team News

Luis de la Fuente has been doing an amazing job with this Spanish team since taking over Luis Enrique.

The new manager opted for the formational change as he has found the winning formula. He took Spain to the UEFA Nations League glory and now to the Euro semi-final in an impressive fashion.

De la Fuente will be forced to make at least three changes for the semi-final, replacing suspended Daniel Carvajal and Robin Le Normand, as well as injured Pedri.

The likes of Jesus Navas and Nacho should deputise in the back line while Dani Olmo is expected to take Pedri’s place at the centre of the park.

As for France, they don’t have issues with suspended or injured players, other than Kylian Mbappe’s struggles with the mask.

Mbappe is producing subpar performances at the Euro and the protective mask certainly has a lot to do with it.

Team-wise, Adrien Rabiot is back from suspension and we expect him to regain his place in midfield at the expense of Real Madrid’s Eduardo Camavinga.

Furthermore, Marcus Thuram could get the nod ahead of Randal Kolo Muani up front.

Spain (4-5-1): Simon – Navas, Nacho, Laporte, Cucurella – Rodri, Ruiz, Yamal, Olmo, Williams – Morata

France (4-4-2): Maignan – Kounde, Upamecano, Saliba, Hernandez – Tchouameni, Kante, Rabiot, Griezmann – Thuram, Mbappe.
