Spain vs Italy Predicted Lineups & Preview

Spain’s qualification campaign was chaotic, but they managed to secure a position in the finals for the second time in a row. The runners-up from 2021 failed to get traction after a string of early draws and a narrow victory in Switzerland, which led to La Roja’s first home loss since 2018.

Alvaro Morata scored the winning goal in the waning seconds to guarantee a spot in the semi-finals, but they still managed to pull off a remarkable victory away from Portugal. Roberto Mancini’s team regained some prestige after their shocking loss to North Macedonia in the World Cup play-offs by being paired in a difficult group with opponents from the final of the EURO 2020, England, and Germany.

After suffering a humiliating 5-2 loss on Matchday four in Germany, the Azzurri rebounded with two victories in a row in September, with Giacomo Raspadori scoring in each of them. With a goal against the Czech Republic this season, Gavi, who made his Spain debut in the previous Nations League semifinals in October 2021 at the age of 17 years 304 days, set a new record for the nation’s youngest-ever scorer.

Gavi surpassed Ansu Fati’s mark from September 2020 by a week. Right-back Pasquale Mazzocchi of Salernitana became the 51st player to appear for Italy under Mancini during the pivotal qualification match against Hungary. More Azzurri debutants than any other coach are just Arrigo Sacchi (55).

Spain has alternated between victories and draws in each of their past four games with Italy, remaining unbeaten in those contests. Due to two goals from Ferran Torres, they defeated the Azzuri 2-1 in the previous match, snapping their record-breaking 37-game undefeated streak.

Going into this final intense semifinal fixture, Spain has a win probability of 50%, whereas Italy has a win probability of 35%.
