Spain vs Italy: Match Prediction

In their last five competitive clashes, Spain scored nine goals excluding penalties while Italy found the back of the net four times. Italy are unbeaten in their last 10 UEFA European Championship matches with their last defeat coming in 2016. On the other hand, Spain have won all three of their Euro matches against the reigning champions of the tournament.

After their 2011 friendly, Italy scored more than one goal against Spain just once during a Round of 16 clash in the Euro 2016 while they last scored two goals in a major competition against Spain in the quarter-final of the 1994 FIFA World Cup.

Considering their current forms, the game between Spain and Italy is expected to be a closely-fought contest with each team scoring at least a goal. According to SportsTiger, Spain are likely to beat Italy by 3-2 on Thursday night.
