Should Spain take confidence from France’s scoring drought?

ESpain is once again on the verge of a final a year after playing in the Nations League final against Croatia. On this occasion, the Allianz Arena in Munich will be the location chosen for the first semi-final of Euro 2024. On its grass, Luis de la Fuente’s men will try to knock down France and dream of lifting their fourth EURO.

These are the Interwetten odds for Spain – France:

Goals matter, but… are the dynamics decisive?

Dynamics are important, but there are times when they are not decisive in games. It sounds like a cliché, but in 90 minutes absolutely anything can happen, although we should not forget what has been achieved. You just have to look at the example of Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen this season where they only lost the Europa League final against Atalanta, a match that was the one they least wanted to lose.

Therefore, although they are not decisive, we must take into account how both teams come to the game. Spain is being a steamroller in practically all of its games. In the last six games they have achieved full victories with up to 14 goals for and 6 against, a streak that if we count two more games increases even 10 more goals in their favor. Data that clashes head-on with the scarce three goals for and one against that France has scored in the last six games.

Mbappé, the favorite to see the goal

Although there are players in the Spain squad with more goals than Kylian Mbappé such as Fabián Ruiz and Dani Olmo, the Frenchman is the favorite to score at any time (3.25), followed by up to three Spanish players such as Álvaro Morata (3.55), Joselu (3.65) and Ayoze Pérez (4.40). Some data that shows the ease with which Spain has been scoring goals, a success that could take them to a new final.
