Why you should back Spain 

The Spaniards enter the semifinals with a seven-game winning streak across all competitions and have lost just one of their last 17 matches (14-2-1). They are looking to record their 16th win in 20 contests under manager Luis de la Fuente and become the first team in tournament history to record six victories. Spain were the only team that did not concede during the group stage and allowed just one goal in each of their first two knockout-round games.

Midfielder Pedri will miss the rest of Euro 2024 with a sprained MCL, while midfielders Dani Carvajal and Robin Le Normand won't be on the pitch Tuesday due to suspensions. Spain still has enough offensive firepower to advance, as midfielders Fabian and Dani Olmo each have registered two goals and two assists while winger Lamine Yamal is the tournament leader with three assists. Striker Alvaro Morata converted in the group-stage opener against Croatia to take sole possession of fourth place in Spain's all-time list with 36 goals - two fewer than Fernando Torres for third. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back France

After getting past Belgium in the Round of 16 by virtue of an own-goal, the French converted all five of their penalty-shot attempts against Portugal to reach the semifinals for the second time in the last three Euro tournaments. With the sides even at 3-3, forward Bradley Barcola put France ahead and defender Theo Hernandez cashed in to clinch a spot in the final four. Winger Ousmane Dembele, midfielder Youssouf Fofana and defender Jules Kounde also converted for the French, who have yet to score during open play in the competition.

Two of France's three goals have been own goals, while the other came from Kylian Mbappe on a penalty in a 1-1 draw with Poland during the group stage. It was the 48th international goal by the 25-year-old superstar forward, who trails Thierry Henry by three for second place on the national team's all-time list. Striker Olivier Giroud is France's top scorer with 57 goals in 136 career matches, while forward Antoine Griezmann ranks fourth with 44 in 134 contests. The 33-year-old Griezmann led all players with six goals in Euro 2016 and is two behind Michel Platini (nine) for the most by a Frenchman in tournament history. See which team to pick here.
