Spain against Italy is a classic European clash in modern football, as Alley Sport brings Spain vs Italy Preview and the build up to the interesting semifinals of this cup.
Spain and Italy have been two of the most successful teams in the previous decades, with the Spanish lifting the 2008, 2012 Euros as well as the 2010 FIFA World Cup. On the other hand, the Italians have won the 2006 FIFA World Cup, finalists of the 2012 Euros and finally the winners of the 2020 Euros. It would be an interesting dynamic to see both these sides fight out for yet another piece of silverware, as both sides look to build up for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Spain vs Italy Preview
Spain endured a winning streak in the September international break, winning all 3 of their World Cup qualifying games. On the other hand, the Italians faltered in their form, as they drew against Bulgaria and Switzerland, but winning the game against Lithuania in an emphatic manner, winning 5-0. Both the sides look to comfortably cruise to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, with both teams leading their groups. However, this match would be a test for both the sides to show their credentials for the set piece in Qatar.
Spain vs Italy Preview: 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. Italians are the champions of Europe, and showed they can outclass the best of the best in European football. In our prediction, Italians are going to win the game 2-0.
