France vs Spain Pick, Prediction and Odds, Euro Cup 2012 Quarter final
The defending champions of Euro Cup, Spain will take on France on Saturday, 23 June 2012. France's route to quarterfinal was not as easy as it should have been as they were beaten ruthlessly by Sweden in their last group game. Spain played attacking football and emerged on top in Group C. They won two of their three group games. France was unable to score against Sweden and lost by a whopping difference of two goals which brought an end to their 23-match unbeaten run. Although Spain topped group C easily enough, they still do not seem to be on top of their game. There is a scope of improvement and they need to improve fast if they want to defend their title.

Spain had to stay content with a fighting draw (1-1) against Italy. They were good against a much weaker Irish side and they crushed them with a 4-0 score line. Although they won their last and decisive game against Croatia, they didn't look like themselves. Unstable form of Fernando Torres is also a cause of worry for them. Spain might not be at top of its game but it is still a formidable team to beat. France looked good in their first two games against England and Ukraine. It was in their third game, Sweden rocked them which included Zlatan ibrahimovic's one of the best goals of the tournament. They narrowly missed the flight to home, thanks to England's victory of Ukraine. France's side includes pretty good players like Karim Benzema and Samir Nasri. Benzema has looked good but hasn't scored in the tournament. He'll be itching to get out and find the back of the nets for his side. This game is between one of the best sides in the world and possibly most anticipated quarterfinal of Euro Cup. I am looking forward to a thrilling contest between the two sides.

Spain is getting results but not as efficiently as they want. Can the defending champions reach the semis by beating France? Yes, in my opinion, they can. France is looking down and out after its defeat against Sweden, while Spain is high in confidence as they were group toppers. Spain has some star players who have played and performed under pressure. I'll go with Spain for this game.
- Prediction: France- 1 Spain-2

Despite playing a little above-average football, Spain has managed to reach quarterfinals rather easily. They've scored most goals in the tournament and if they continue to play their natural game, their opposition is going to have a hard time in the field. Spain is the team to go for in this match.
