We have arrived at the semi-final stage of Euro 2024 after the original 24 competing nations were reduced to just four contenders.

Fans must wait to find out, but the Spanish remain in the mix, have form, momentum and growing confidence. They’ll certainly take some stopping.

To stand any chance of making the final and rolling the dice on that fourth European championship, Spain must defeat France at the Allianz Arena in Munich on Tuesday evening in a game you can follow live on television and the best live-streaming apps.

Spain needed extra time to eliminate Germany in the previous round. The Spanish are now on course to win a fourth European Cup and set a new record, leaving the host nation as the best of the rest on three titles. But to have any chance of achieving that feat, they simply had to defeat France in Munich on Tuesday evening.

The latest from the Spanish camp tells us changes are essential, with at least three required. Team Spain must set up for this game without Danny Carvajal, Robin Le Normand and Pedri, who miss out due to a mix of injury and suspension. That’s a tough break for a team that’s been otherwise settled in Germany. Nacho, Jesus Navas and Dani Olmo should be called into action for this semi-final tussle.

We last saw France in action when they rallied to defeat Portugal on penalties following a tense goalless 120+ minutes of play. Despite a wealth of riches in attack for Les Bleus and their opponents, neither nation was able to break the deadlock. France eventually won 5-3 from the penalty spot in what was an engrossing shootout.

A check on the latest team news from the French camp shows they have no injuries or suspensions to worry about ahead of this game and that will give them an edge, certainly on confidence ahead of this last four showdown. Kylian Mbappe’s injured nose remains a concern, but it’s not enough to keep him out of the team.
