Spain v France Prediction - Preview
Spainfinished atop League A Group 4 in the group stages (W3 D2 L1), having picked up 11 points and a goal difference of 10 (GF=13, GA=3). They made history by snapping Italy’s undefeated streak in the UNL semi-final, beating them 2-1 at San Siro. Ferran Torres was La Roja’s hero of the match, scoring a brace in the first half. The Spanish also enjoyed a one-man advantage going into the second half, as Leonardo Bonucci got sent off after receiving two yellow cards. Lorenzo Pellegrini provided hope for the Azzurri with a netter 7 minutes before full time, but the young Iberian squad held on to book thier place in the final. Head coach Luis Enrique lauded his side’s “almost perfect performance” against an Italy that has deflected prior challenges to their run.They now gun for their first major trophy since winning the European Championship nearly a decade ago against a resurgent France squad.
France ended the group stage on top of League A Group 3 (W5 D1), picking up 16 points and a goal difference of 7 (GF=12, GA=5). After falling behind two points at the half of the UNL semi-final, they came back in spectacular fashion to beat Belgium 3-2 at Juventus Stadium. It seemed like the Red Devils were in control of the match, as the first 45 minutes ended with Yannick Carrasco and Romelu Lukaku scoring within three minutes of each other. But Les Bleus were undaunted, as Karim Benzema scored on 62 minutes with an assist from Kylian Mbappe. Jan Vertonghen’s challenge a few minutes later gave France a penalty, which Mbappe converted to the level the game. And with the possibility of extra time looming, Theo Hernandez scored his first international goal at full time to complete Les Bleus’ stunning comeback. Head coach Didier Deschamps praised his team’s “strength of character”, declaring that his men will go the distance to lift their first trophy since the 2018 World Cup. They now face their neighbours across the border, whose young squad is looking to equal the feats of last decade’s “tiki-taka” warriors.

Spain v France Prediction - Final Thoughts
Spain’s youthful lineup and all-around game have them pegged as the next great team in Europe. Their impressive showing at EURO 2020 and in the Nations League under Luis Enrique makes them true contenders. However, at the end of the day, France are the more-established powerhouse, and they aren’t reigning World Cup champions for nothing. They can easily counteract Spain’s attack with a well-balanced lineup, and, as seen in the Belgium clash, can deliver when their backs are against the wall. With that, let’s take a look at the prediction.
