90 or 120 minutes away from a new final. Les Bleus will face a formidable Spain on Tuesday, July 9, in the semi-final of Euro 2024. In a packed Allianz Arena in Munich, Didier Deschamps’ protégés, who went down on penalties against Portugal in the previous round (0-0, 5-3 on penalties), must shake up the team that has made the best impression since the start of the tournament, with the maestro Rodri to supervise the passion of the youngest (Lamine Yamal, Nico Williams).

Antoine Griezmann on the bench. If Kylian Mbappé is well aligned in the French 4-3-3, the number 7 of the Blues will start the match among the substitutes. He pays the price for the good entry of Ousmane Dembélé coming off the bench against Portugal, while Adrien Rabiot returns to the eleven after his suspension. A big point of satisfaction of the tournament, the rearguard is, logically, renewed.

The first goal in the game is still awaited. A penalty and two own goals. On the offensive side, the French have not had the most exciting summer and the lackluster performances of the captain and his vice-captain have largely contributed to this feeling. The fact remains that, without having scored a single goal of their own in the game after five matches, they have managed to reach the last four, as in three of the four previous tournaments.

A Spain that is more than attractive. Having fallen into the group of death, Luis de la Fuente’s men have signed a flawless record thanks to a football that stands out in this dreary Euro. Before then proving that they know how to get out of missteps, whether it be after conceding the first goal against Georgia in the round of 16 (4-1) or by eliminating Germany in the quarter-finals at the end of extra time (2-1). But, facing a well-established French defensive formation, the withdrawal of midfielder Pedri and the suspensions of defenders Dani Carvajal and Robin Le Normand could be felt.
