Why bet on Spain vs Italy?
The Spanish struggled against Switzerland, yes. But before the 1-1 penalty kick shootout victory over the Swiss, Spain had dominated teams like Slovakia and Croatia. The Spanish scored 5 goals in two straight matches. Something like that is rare. Scoring 5 goals against the 2018 World Cup runner up, Croatia, is even more rare. If Spain gets their attack flowing, they can upset the Italians.

Why bet on Italy versus Spain?
The Italians have played better than any team at EURO 2020. Italy rolled through their group stage opponents, including beating Switzerland 3-0. After a 2-1 victory over Austria, the Italians beat Belgium 2-1 in a match where Kevin De Bruyne, Belgium’s star player, stepped onto the pitch. Italy is as smooth as any team at EURO 2020. They’re playing like a machine.

Final Betting Analysis: Spain vs Italy
If Italian player Leonardo Spinazzola hadn’t gotten injured against Belgium, the Italians would be a much bigger favorite against Spain. But Spinazzola, who had been playing great, did get hurt.
Without Spinazzola, many feel Spain has the upper hand. That’s not necessarily the case, though. Emerson, a substitute defender on Chelsea’s Champions League squad, filled in admirably for Spinazzola after the backer had to leave the pitch.
Expect Italy’s head coach, Roberto Mancini, to have the perfect defensive strategy around Emerson’s skills. When it comes to the attack, Italy is as good as it gets. The Italians can score from anywhere around the penalty box.
Chiesa, Insigne, Immobile, and Barella are all capable. Italy is playing like the EURO 2020 winners. They won’t stop playing that way on Tuesday.
