European champions Italy hosts Spain in this European Nations League semi-final match, hoping to build on their Euro 2020 win.
Spain will want to stop the Italians from making a clean sweep of European trophies this year.
The Azzurri has been one of the world’s most in-form teams recently and they would be keen to keep that record.
This game offers them the chance to show that winning the Euros isn’t a fluke and with the likes of Ciro Immobile missing out, winning this game would be a major morale booster for them.
Spain has a fine recent record against the hosts, even though the Italians eliminated them from Euro 2020 earlier in the year.
The Spaniards have lost just once in normal time against the Azzurri in their last five head to heads.
However, Italy has a fine record against Spain when they are the host team with no losses and two wins from their last five home games against La Roja.
This game would be a tough one for both countries and it gives Italy the chance to show they are the top dog among both countries now.
