Spain and France will go head-to-head for their first Nations League trophy when they meet in Milan for Sunday’s final.
Luis Enrique’s men overcame European champions Italy in their semi-final, with Ferran Torres scoring twice in a match that saw Loonardo Bonucci sent off.
Spain vs France latest odds
Having lost just one of their last seven games against this opposition, Spain are available at 19/10 (2.90) with bet365 to lift the trophy with another big win at San Siro.
France came back from 2-0 down to beat Belgium 3-2 in their semi-final and are slight 29/20 (2.45) favourites to follow that up with another victory.
Just one of the last 11 encounters between this pair has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 11/5 (3.20) on them taking the final into extra-time after a deadlocked 90 minutes.
Spain vs France team news
Match-winner Ferran Torres will face a late fitness test after coming off injured in the victory over Italy, with Yeremi Pino in line to replace him in attack should he fail to recover.
Lucas Digne has withdrawn from the squad with a hamstring injury, while N’Golo Kante is unavailable due to Covid-19.
Spain vs France preview
Having once again decided to go with his controversial back three against Belgium, Didier Deschamps will have been disappointed to see his side fall two goals behind within the first 40 minutes.
The World Cup-winning coach now has a decision to make over how he sets up a backline that has looked particularly fragile in recent games, keeping just one clean sheet in seven fixtures.
That vulnerability is sure to be tested by a Roja team that have not failed to find the net in nine games, scoring 22 goals in that time but keeping only two clean sheets in the most recent seven.
Spain vs France tips & predictions
With both sides looking much more impressive going forward than in defence, odds of 5/6 (1.83) look like solid value on both getting on target in a fittingly entertaining Nations League final on Sunday.
That bet would have paid out in six of France’s last seven outings, as well as five of the last seven for Spain.
