Spain And France Face Each Other In The Semi-finals Of The European Cup

Jul 09, Kathmandu- The first match of the semi-finals of the ongoing Eurocup is taking place today. In the first semi-final, Spain and France are playing. This game is starting from 12:45 pm according to Nepali time.

Spain reached the semi-finals after defeating the hosts Germany in the quarter-finals. Spain defeated Germany with a 2-1 goal difference.

Likewise, France reached the semi-finals by defeating Portugal 5-3 in the penalty shoot-out in the quarter-finals.

There have been 36 matches between Spain and France so far. In which Spain has won 16 times and France has won 13 times. Likewise, 7 games between both have ended in a draw.

Talking about the journey of the European Cup so far, Spain has won the European Cup title three times. Spain won the European Cup in 1964, 2008 and 2012. Similarly, Spain became the runner-up in 1984.

France has won the European Cup twice so far in 1984 and 2000, and was runner-up in 2016.

In the overall performance of this Eurocup, Spain is ahead of France. For Spain, the lack of playmaker Pedri is going to be a problem. But the performance of Dani Olmo, who replaced him in the quarterfinals, has increased Spain's confidence after defeating Germany.

Likewise, the most worrying thing for France is the performance of captain Kylian Mbappe. Mbappe has only scored one goal from the penalty spot this season. France has not scored any other official goals in this tournament except against Poland.
