15-06-23 Daily Football Predictions : Italy vs Spain

Betting Tips

On Thursday, Spain and Italy will compete for a spot in the UEFA Nations League finals. On Sunday, the winner will play either Croatia or the Netherlands, sides that both La Roja and the Azzurri are convinced they can defeat.

Italy, while struggling under Roberto Mancini, is no pushover, and Spain is the favorite going into Twente.

Italy vs Spain

The UEFA Nations League is beneficial because it provides us with high-quality national team fixtures in a year without a World Cup or EURO. This might be another intriguing classic game between Spain and Italy, who have played many excellent matches this century.

Spain won games against Portugal, the Czech Republic, and Switzerland in Group 2 to go to the League of Nations semi-finals. Spain now has a one-point advantage over its Iberian Peninsula rivals thanks to the victory over Portugal in the previous round. The Italians also trounced Hungary, knocking this unexpectedly talented national team out of the first position in group 3. It should be emphasized that two potent teams, Germany and England, preceded both of these selections.

Spain defeated Italy 2-1 in their most recent meeting, halting Italy’s amazing 37-game winning streak before falling to France in the championship game. That was the closest former head coach Luis Enrique came to leading La Roja to a championship.

 Enrique was fired after La Roja’s lackluster 2022 World Cup campaign came to an end with a loss to Morocco in the round of 16. Luis de la Fuente, a former coach of Spain’s under-19 and under-21 teams, has joined the team and is eager to make his mark after patiently waiting for his moment.

Verdict

Instead, we anticipate a tight contest with a significant likelihood that extra time will be required to settle the fixture. When Italy and Spain faced off in the European Championship, Italy prevailed on penalties, and Mancini may well rely on Gianluigi Donnarumma once more this week.

With our prediction of under 2.5 goals scored, fans may be in for a low-scoring game since the two teams are reasonably evenly matched on paper. Both nations have a long history of producing strong number nines, but neither will be able to rely on a top-tier striker on Thursday.

Efficiency due to issues with attackers is something that could cause problems for both national teams. The defense of the Italian team is unquestionably its strongest point, although the center midfield of the Spanish team may be.

This should be a very difficult elimination game by any standards. 6 of the past 10 direct matches since 2012 and up to this point have finished in a tie. The last mutual match was won by Spain 2-1 two years ago. In a game like this, betting on a draw offers significant value. Of course, betting on under 2.5 goals is also a wise move.
