Likely Winner:

  • Since losing to Portugal in the inaugural UEFA Nations League in 2018, Italy has gone 38 games without losing.
  • This will be the 35th time Italy and Spain have met. La Roja has won 12 of the past 34 games, while the Azzurri have won ten (12 draws).
  • Spain, on the other hand, has only won one of their last five meetings with Italy, a 3-0 victory in a World Cup qualifier in 2017.
  • Lorenzo Insigne will make his 50th appearance for Italy if he plays on Wednesday. He is the highest goal scorer for the Azzurri in the current roster, with ten goals.
  • It should be a cagey game and Italy are marginal favorites considering they are playing at home.

Match Odds: 

Italy: 23/18
Spain: 3/1
