Italy vs Spain Preview and Livestream

Italy are the current UEFA Euros champions and would want to keep their good form going in the UEFA Nations League. They are no strangers to facing the Spaniards as they did so in this summer’s tournament as well as in the final of the 2012 edition of the European Championship. They are quite arguably the strongest team on paper and on the pitch in Europe going into this game.

But Spain can never be ruled out. Despite a steep decline for the past 7 years, Spain’s strong squad makes them favourites going into most matches. They are without a trophy on the international stage for 9 years now going into this game and would want to break that duck starting this weekend. Whether they can overcome the European champions remains to be seen, however.

Italy vs Spain Prediction

Italy are a strong side but so are Spain. With the game being in Milan, the Azzurri would hold home advantage and with a stronger side and seemingly better tactics, Roberto Mancini’s men are expected to run out comfortable winners against a Spain side devoid of any real fight in them in recent years.
