Spain vs France: Head-to-Head Prediction
Even with a relatively young squad, Spain dominated the game against Italy and earned a well-deserved victory, as the team under Luis Enrique showed resilience and will be intent on winning the final on Sunday.
While France has been nullified in the defense by every opponent they have come across, Spain have cohesiveness in their game which France is lacking, and with their Tiki-taka Spain will easily exploit France’s defense.
