Germany won the title in its first two appearances in the Women’s European Championship but had its quest for a third thwarted in 1993. The national team resumed its dominance by winning the following six tournaments before its streak was halted in 2017 by Denmark, which posted a 2-1 victory in their quarterfinal matchup. Germany looks to move a step closer to its ninth crown when it meets France in the semifinals of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 on Wednesday. The Germans defeated Austria 2-0 in the quarters to set up the showdown with the French, who edged the Netherlands 1-0 in extra time to reach the semis for the first time.

Why you should back Germany
Opponents have yet to solve Die Nationalelf, which has posted clean sheets in each of its first four matches in the 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro. The club has scored a total of 11 goals in the tournament, recording at least two in each contest. Midfielder Lina Magull opened the scoring in the quarterfinal victory over Austria in the 25th minute and forward Alexandra Popp sealed things in the 90th.
The 31-year-old Popp has provided plenty of offensive firepower for Germany, scoring in each of the four matches to rank second in the tournament in goals. Making her Euro debut after missing the previous two due to injuries, Popp is the first player to score in four consecutive matches in a single edition of the event. Magull, who did not play in the Germans’ 3-0 group-stage triumph over Finland, is second on the squad with two tallies and has converted in three of her last four games across all competitions.
Why you should back France
After being eliminated in the quarterfinals in each of the previous three Euros, France finally got over the hump thanks to Eve Perisset. The 27-year-old defender scored a penalty in the 102nd minute to snap a scoreless tie and help send Les Bleues into uncharted territory. France, which had a 33-9 advantage in shots and an 11-1 edge in shots on target, joined Germany, Sweden and Norway as the only teams to reach the semifinals in the Women’s Euros, World Cup and Olympics.
Les Bleues likely will make early attempts to break through against Germany’s staunch defense as all eight of their goals in the group stage were scored in the first half. Midfielder Grace Geyoro has produced a team-leading three of the tallies after registering a hat trick in France’s tournament-opening 5-1 victory against Italy. Perisset and five others have netted one goal apiece for the French, while midfielder Clara Mateo and defender Sakina Karchaoui both have notched a pair of assists.
