Although many expect France to exit the competition after they failed to impress last time out (losing 2-0 to Sweden in their last Group D game), it is worth remembering that prior to their surprise loss, they were unbeaten in 23 international games.

Against the top teams, Spain are struggling for goals, and aside from the 4-0 win over a poor Republic of Ireland team, Vicente del Bosque's side have failed to impress thus far at the European Championships.

Les Blues will have to improve dramatically if they are to shock the champions, but it is worth noting that Spain have never won a competitive game against France, losing five and drawing one of their previous six meetings.

In addition, France have beaten Spain at two European Championship finals (and drawn one), and have gone on to win the title on both occasions (1984 and 2000).
