Team News

Spain
Italy
  • Young duo Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams are expected to retain their places either side of Alvaro Morata in the favoured 4-3-3 setup.
  • Alvaro Morata came off injured against Croatia on Saturday, but should be fit enough to go again here.
  • Luciano Spalletti will likely remain unchanged for this huge Group B clash.
  • Federico Chiesa was an injury concern and substituted 10 minutes from time against Albania on Saturday evening, but should be cleared to start in Gelsenkirchen.

Prediction

  • A ruthless first half in Berlin saw Spain cruise to victory over Croatia on Saturday.
  • La Roja face Italy in a fifth successive European Championship, having bowed out on penalties to the Azzurri in the semi-final three years ago, and in the round of 16 eight years ago.
  • Defending champions Italy had to pick themselves up after going behind inside 23 seconds against Albania on Saturday, but came from behind to seal a 2-1 victory in Dortmund.
  • In one of the games of the group stage, both sides may well have to settle for a point here.
