The team news so far is that defender Leonardo Spinazzola – one of Italy’s standout performers – will be out “for a few months” after rupturing his Achilles tendon against Belgium. Meanwhile, Sarabia and Laporte are both doubts for Spain.
Tuesday’s match will be the fourth time the Azzurri have come up against the Red Fury in the Euros. Last time out, Italy ended Spain’s Euro 2016 campaign, running out 2-0 winners at the last 16 stage.
Italy are favourites for this one – and with good reason. Roberto Mancini’s side are unbeaten in 30 matches having won all 10 of their Euro 2020 qualifiers. Not only have they scored 20 goals in the last nine games, they’ve managed to keep 11 straight clean sheets. The loss of Spinazzola will hurt them, but Italy’s togetherness, tactics and precise passing could see them storm into the final.
It’s no secret that Spain aren’t what they were; they simply don’t have the depth and firepower that saw them beat Italy 4-0 in the Euro 2012 final. That said, Spain will go into this Euro 2020 semi-final feeling confident having survived a penalty shootout against Switzerland to make the semi-finals once again.
”We are so proud,” Spain head coach Luis Enrique told UEFA this week. “It’d be ridiculous to think that we, or any of the semi-finalists, would sign for just getting this far now – all of us want to get to the final and win.”
The big game kicks off on Tuesday at 8pm BST at Wembley Stadium. UK fans can tune in on BBC One but read on for more details of how to watch an Italy vs Spain live stream for free wherever you are in the world.
