Neither of these teams won their group and both showed weaknesses, but Spain are still the big favourites. Spain were eliminated in the group final with five goals against Slovakia, after struggling to score in the first two games despite being completely dominated by Spain.

Croatia needed a win in their last game against Scotland but won 3–1 in Glasgow to come into this game. Luka Modric scored a memorable goal in that win and is good enough to keep Croatia in every game. He would get his hands on the midfield against the Spanish occupation style.

The French national team opened as the best player of the tournament, and two draws in the group stage did nothing to change that. France 15-4 to win the championship. The strong French attack scored just four goals in three matches and was -155 with less than 2.5 goals. Kylian Mbappe has not scored yet but Karim Benzema has scored twice against Portugal.

Switzerland has never won a European Championship knockout game and has never reached the quarter-finals. The Swiss are one of four teams to win the tournament 100:1.
