The last time Spain lost in the knock-out stage of a major tournament was at the 2006 World Cup. Guess the team that beat 'em? That day in Hamburg: France 3 - Spain 1.
When it comes to competitive soccer, Spain's never beaten France, but France? Le' Blues have won five times, drawn once and never lost. Still, the Spanish goes into this match as the favourites. With seven points from group play, and might have taken all nine with a different starting 11 against Italy. And, of course, do not forget, they are the defending world and European champions.
Will history repeat itself today?
