Just four teams remain at UEFA Euro 2024, and we have two thrilling semi-final games midweek that will decide who is involved in the final this Sunday in Germany.

Spain take on France on Tuesday, followed by England vs Netherlands on Wednesday, as four titans of international football fight it out to win Euro 2024. But what do we expect to happen in those games, and will it be a similar story to what we have seen so far at Euro 2024?

Check out our Euro 2024 predictions for the semi finals below, as well as some Euro 2024 free bets that you might want to take advantage of for either game, or maybe even both!

Euro 2024: Spain vs France Predictions

If Euro 2024 is anything to go by, there is only way in which Spain vs France will end up, and that would be Spain booking their place in the Euro 2024 final on Sunday. However, the French have the knowhow when it comes to being in this position, especially recently, and will not be going down without a fight.

These two teams most recently met in the 2021 Nations League Final when France came from behind to win the trophy, but they have not played each other much at all in recent times, meaning there is little reason to suggest that one or the other may win based on history.

If you had asked me who wins this game before Spain vs Germany, my automatic response would have been to say Spain would cruise through against France. However, after they showed a bit of vulnerability and actually surrendered control of the ball after they went 1-0 up in the match against Germany, there’s reason to believe that France will have a chance against Spain.

Going off of form, you would undoubtedly pick Spain, but a nagging feeling inside of me suggests that like with Austria against Turkey, playing bravely and trying to win doesn’t always get its rewards, and especially when the opposition have Kylian Mbappe to use on the counter attack at their disposal.

Moreover, Spain missing Dani Carvajal, Pedri, and Robin Le Normand through suspension or injury is likely to be costly and could definitely hamper how they want to play and might mean they struggle to replicate the free-flowing football we have seen from them so far at Euro 2024.

Like we have seen with a few games at Euro 2024 already, I can see this one heading to extra time, and France scraping through on penalties, like they always seem to be able to do.

Spain 1-1 France (5/1)
France to win on penalties (15/2)
Mbappe 2+ shots on target, Olmo 1+ shot on target (9/2)

When is Spain vs France?

Spain vs France, which is the first of the two semi finals at Euro 2024 will take place on Tuesday, 9th July at 20:00 BST. The match will be played at Munich Football Arena, the home to Bayern Munich.

Where To Watch Spain vs France

If you are based in the UK, you can watch Spain vs France on terrestrial televison, or you will also be able to catch the game via a streaming platform, with the two options laid out for you below:

TV: BBC One
Streaming: BBC iPlayer

Spain vs France Probable Lineups

Spain, as we have already mentioned, will be forced into a few changes for this one due to suspensions and injures. But France on the other hand, may make some tactical tweaks but are likely to play a similar to lineup to what we have seen throughout Euro 2024.

Spain: Unai Simon; Jesus Navas, Nacho, Aymeric Laporte, Marc Cucurella; Rodri, Fabian Ruiz, Dani Olmo; Lamine Yamal, Alvaro Morata, Nico Williams

France: Mike Maignan; Jules Kounde, Dayot Upamecano, William Saliba, Theo Hernandez; N'Golo Kante, Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga; Ousmane Dembele, Marcus Thuram, Kylian Mbappe

Euro 2024: Netherlands vs England Predictions

This match has a very similar feel to it compared to Spain vs France, with England having struggled all the way through Euro 2024, and the Netherlands seemingly enjoying their football, creating chances and scoring goals.

But, there is always the question mark of whether this will be the game that England clicks into gear, and manage to finally meet the lofty expectations that fans were convinced they’d see from the likes of Phil Foden, Harry Kane, and Jude Bellingham.

On top of the poor performances so far, it won’t be pretty reading for England fans to know that their side have just one win in nine meetings with the Dutch, which is not exactly promising heading into Wednesday’s game.

The main man that England will have to keep at bay is undoubtedly Cody Gakpo, who seems to play at a different level for the Netherlands compared to Liverpool, with the Dutch forward currently leading the top goalscorer standings joint with a few others.

To make matters worse, England have struggled to break down seemingly easier opposition so far at Euro 2024 and now they come up against Virgil Van Dijk, arguably the best centre back in world football.

Even with all of that information, it’s difficult to suggest who will win Netherlands vs England as it looks a complete 50/50, even though the bookmakers currently favour England, best priced at 17/10 compared to the Netherlands at 9/4.

Solely based on individual quality, the reason which has been bailing them out so far, I see England going through and making it two consecutive finals at UEFA European Championships. Could it finally be coming home?

England 2-1 Netherlands (10/1)
Memphis Depay to score (10/3)
Cody Gakpo 1+ shot on target, Bukayo Saka over 1.5 shots, over 8.5 corners (15/4)

When is Netherlands vs England?

The second semi final of Euro 2024, which will decide who plays in the final this Sunday against Spain or France, will take place exactly one day later on Wednesday, 10th July at 20:00 BST. The match will take place at Borussia Dortmund's stadium, the BVB Stadion Dortmund.

Where to Watch Netherlands vs England

You will be able to watch the semi final between Netherlands and England either on your TV or through a streaming platform, if that's what you would prefer. It is only available on one channel for UK viewers, just so you are ready to put the game on the right channel when it is about to start.

TV:
ITV1
Streaming: ITVX

Netherlands vs England Probable Lineups

The Netherlands are likely to make just one change for their semi final with England, and it won't be Wout Weghorst despite his impact from the bench in their quarter final turnaround against Turkey. England do have the option to bring in Luke Shaw, but seeing as he has played just 45 minutes all tournament and is only just returning from injury, it might be seen as too big of a risk for Southgate to take.

Netherlands: Bart Verbruggen; Denzel Dumfries, Stefan de Vrij, Virgil Van Dijk, Nathan Ake; Jerdy Schouten, Tijjani Reijnders; Donyell Malen, Xavi Simons, Cody Gakpo; Memphis Depay

England: Jordan Pickford; Kyle Walker, John Stones, Marc Guehi; Bukayo Saka, Kobbie Mainoo, Declan Rice, Kieran Trippier; Jude Bellingham, Phil Foden; Harry Kane
