Italy vs Spain Betting PreviewItaly look in fearsome form, making in 15 victories in a row and 32 games without suffering any defeat. The Azzurri dispatched the world's no.1 Belgium in the quarter-finals, with Nicolo Barella and Lorenzo Insigne giving them a double lead before a Romelu Lukaku's penalty set the 2-1 scoreline. Prior to that, Roberto Mancini's men won the Group A with maximum points - beating Turkey, Switzerland and Wales - and defeated Austria 2-1 in extra time in the last-16 round. That was the Azzurri's less convincing performance this summer, but they are clearly the most brilliant team thus far.
Spain appeared to have found their scoring touch when they beat Slovakia 5-0 in the final group stage game. They also put 5 goals past Croatia in a thrilling extra time win (5-3) in the last-16 round, after blowing a 3-1 lead late on. In the quarter-finals, La Roja back to their toothless best as they knocked out Switzerland on penalties after La Nati held them on the 1-1 draw despite playing with 10 men. As a result, Spain have drawn 4 of the 5 games (after 90 minutes) played at Euro 2020 so far.
As to direct encounters, Italy and Spain met in the 2016 EURO Round of 16, with the Italians eliminating the big rivals, beating them 2-0. They also met in the World Cup qualifiers twice between 2016 and 2017. La Roja beat the Azzurri 3-0 at home and drew 1-1 in Italy.

Probable Line-UpsItaly (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Chiellini, Bonucci, Emerson; Jorginho, Verratti, Barella; Chiesa, Immobile, Insigne
Spain (4-3-3): Unai Simon; Jordi Alba, P. Torres, Laporte, Azpilicueta; Busquets, Pedri, Koke; F.Torres, Dani Olmo, Moreno
Luis Enrique withdrew Pablo Sarabia at half-time and the winger is a major doubt because of a muscular injury. Alvaro Morata also came off after 54 minutes and the Juventus striker is in contention with his substitute Gerard Moreno. In midfield, the youngster Pedri has impressed so far and looks sure to retain his berth, alongside Koke and Sergio Busquets. At the back, Jordi Alba and Cesar Azpilicueta look favourites over Gayà and Marcos Llorente, while Aymeric Laporte and Pau Torres should be paired at the heart of the backline.

Italy v Spain Predictions
Italy looked solid at the back in all their outings so far while Spain missed a lot of chances against Switzerland and will have to sharpen up in attack to progress further. La Roja come into this game after back-to-back matches which went into extra time and the extra-fatigue could be a factor at this stage of the tournament. The absence of Spinazzola will be a huge blow, but we back the Azzurri to win the match. The 2-1 scoreline is our choice in the Correct Score market. As to goalscorer, Italy are yet to win a penalty, so we bet on Jorginho - Italy's penalty taker - to score anytime.
