You could be forgiven for thinking this match is a Gareth Bale vs Cristiano Ronaldo showdown.  Welsh fans must be hoping it doesn’t go to penalties.

Germany vs France in Marseille 8PM / 9PM CET

A final between Wales and Germany would go down in history as surprise to most people including bookmakers and a final between Portugal and Germany would be expected by most.

Germany’s Sami Khedira will miss the semi final due to injury after after a trip caused by Italy striker Eder.  Khedira joins injured Mario Gomez and banned Mats Hummels.

Wale’s Aaron Ramsey will miss the semi final due to suspension.

France have not players missing the semi final due to injury and have Adil Rami and N’Golo Kante returning from suspension.

Portugal have William Carvalho suspended and Pepe possibly out due to a thigh injury.

All to play for.  Our recommended bookie is Betfair.
