In the fourth consecutive edition of the European Championship, the Italians and Spaniards will meet in the knockout stages, but there is a new sensation for the two national teams ahead of the semi-final match at Wembley Stadium in London. Italy has a record 32 unbeaten matches (13 consecutive wins), playing a new and modern style of football, while Spain has entered into a team change that offers a new interpretation of the “tiki-taka” style of possession that has characterized La Roja. Over the years. Spain and its football brand have inflicted some painful losses on the Italians, including a 4-0 victory in the Euro 2012 final which is the most lopsided match in the competition’s history.Italy has defeated Spain only twice in the last 14 matches, but this time it may Things turn with Italy winning all the plaudits at Euro 2021.

But the quickest Euro player lost to an Achilles tear suffered against Belgium and we’ll see how much the Azzurri will miss him. His potential replacement, Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri, is not the same playmaker as Spinazzola, and the Italian camp says Spinazzola’s loss is further motivation for the Azzurri to win. The rest of the squad is expected to remain unchanged with Giovanni Di Lorenzo retaining the right-back position even though his rivals for the spot are now fully fit (Alessandro Florenzi and Rafael Toloi). Mancini will not lose faith with this highly criticized striker Cerro Immobile. The 18-year-old Barcelona star is one such Euroleague find and has excelled, as has the entire Spain squad, with captain Sergio Busquets returning to the squad three games ago after losing time due to a positive COVID-19 test. Spain will also miss a key player due to injury. Winger Pablo Sarabia will be absent due to a muscle strain in his right leg he suffered against Switzerland. Also, center back Pau Torres, whose aerial abilities may not be in this game, can be replaced by Eric Garcia, Italy (4-3-3, left to right): Gigi Donnarumma- GK – Emerson Palmieri, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Giovanni Di Lorenzo – Marco Verratti, Jorginho, Niccol Barilla – Lorenzo Insigne, Cerro Immobile, Federico Chiesa Spain (4-3-3, left to right): Unai Simon-GK – Jordi Alba, Eric Garcia, Aymeric Laporte, Cesar Azpilicueta – Pedri, Sergio Busquets, Koke – Dani Olmo, Alvaro Morata, Ferran Torres, Italy vs Spain: odds and predictions, given that both teams have a tendency to press to get the ball back, and then hold it at first, many expect a big opening game between two technically skilled teams. enough to pull it off. But we rarely get wide open matches when two such powerful forces meet at the stake, even if both are known for their positive, attack-oriented tactics.

Italy and Spain last met about eight months before Mancini took over, this Italy will create chaos and increase the burden on Spain’s defense that has shown that it is capable of collapse under pressure. For all of Spain’s successful recovery of the ball (37.4% of successful pressures per FBref, compared to 26.5 for Italy), Italy applied 20% more pressure in attacking third place during this tournament. And for the Spain team that gets more touches (4,980 total versus Italy’s 3701) and maintains more possession (73% on average compared to 57.6% in Italy), it could spell disaster for La Roja if Spaniards cough in key areas. Chaos could overcome the most methodical reinforcements from Spain. And if Italy takes the lead, there’s a good chance the Azzurri can find success as they did against Belgium – the old-fashioned Italian way. – Prediction: Italy 2, Spain 0 Orders from Draft Kings Italy to win (90 minutes): + 145 Italy to advance: -143 Draw (90 minutes): + 220 Spain to win (90 minutes): + 210 Spain to advance: + 120 Italy – 0.25 Asian Bet: +108 Italy -0.5 Asian Bet: +145
