Spain vs France Prediction and Odds
Spain vs France Prediction and Betting Odds: Preview
France had an underwhelming Euro 2020 and will be looking for a morale-boosting win to end their dry run. They couldn’t live up to the expectations following their 2018 World Cup triumph and need silverware to make people aware of their superiority.
Spain also needed an uplift following their Euro 2020 disappointment and the win against Italy has provided just that. Under Luis Enrique, they are still at a learning stage and the likes of Torres, Aymeric Laporte, Rodri, and Unai Simon could deliver the trophy home this time.
Enrique also Barcelona midfielder Gavi who was praised for his excellent display against Italy in the semifinal.
See how good the kids are in Spain! It is not normal to see a player with this character, this confidence on his debut. He will be the future of the Spain squad and I think the present too,” he said.
Verratti is his idol! I told him, today you press Verratti from the first moment to the last. He loved it. He played like he was at school or in the garden of his house and it’s great to have a player of this quality and personality.”
When it comes to major tournaments Didier Deschamps is a master of it. The former French footballer captained France and guided them to the ultimate glory at the 1998 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2000.
He already took home the World Cup once in his coaching career and is very keen to add another to his trophy cabinet. Deschamps praised his team after they fought back despite trailing at the break by two goals.
We were knocked out by Switzerland (at Euro 2020) but the France national team is still here. We confirmed what we did against Finland, against Belgium who are the best nation in Europe, in the world. We’re still among the best teams.”
It’s one of the best because of how it unfolded, because of the quality of our opponents,” he explained. Despite the adversity we had the pride and the character to turn it around. It is a great, great moment.”
We were below our par in the last part of the first half but once we played more aggressively it was another story. The players were feeling down at halftime but it’s because we had given Belgium the opportunity to score those two goals. The players showed pride and character.”
