Italy vs Spain Match Preview and Team News
Italy is coming from a 2-1 win over Belgium and has been the best team at this competition, conceding just two goals so far. The only setback against Belgium, apart from failing to keep a clean sheet, would be the loss of Leonardo Spinazzola to injury. The Roma defender isn’t expected to be back in time for the semi-final. Italy has won each of their matches at this competition; their win over Belgium was their 13th straight and 33rd straight unbeaten outing. The fact that they managed to do their business in 90 minutes should give them an advantage over a Spain side that had to go all the way to penalties. Jorginho is an excellent defensive midfielder who knows what he is doing at all times, he is strong, and it is not easy to take the ball away from him. He plays excellently for Chelsea and performs well on penalties. Domenico Berardi creates a lot of problems for the opponents on the right-wing. It’s hard to keep this guy in the one-on-one game, as he has fantastic dribbles.
Spain may be among the last four, but they have struggled a lot to kill off matches in this competition, even when dominating possession. The only time they had a semblance of comfort was in their 5-0 win over Slovakia in their final group game. They scored five against Croatia, but they had very shaky moments as the Croats came from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 and send the game to extra time. The weight of going to extra time in their last two matches will for sure weigh in here, and especially having gone all the way to penalties against Switzerland in their previous game. Spain took the lead via an own goal against the Swiss but still struggled to add to it, and after Switzerland’s equalizer, they were reduced to 10 men with 13 minutes to go, but Spain struggled to break them down. Dani Olmo is the engine of this team, and he goes through the defense of the opponent like a fast train, he controls the ball very well and can be satisfied with his games. Mikel Oyarzabal enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
