Spain and Italy will play in a match of semi-finals of EURO 2020 this Thuesday (06 July 2021), as both teams go to next part of the championship, afer Italy wins against Belgium and Spain against Swiss.
Spain was and remains one of the favorites to win Euro 2020 championship, but the team seems to have lost its previous appearance and currently, does not show the best it can in the latest matches. Luck was on their side after the execution of penalties with the Swiss team, who with a man less in the second half kept the tie. The absence of key players in the Swiss team and the red card given in the second half did not show that Spain is significantly superior to them. In this match, I expect the Spaniards to mobilize and show why they got here, as well as to counter the rapid counterattacks of the Italian team. Luis Enrique’s players are tired from the long match that took place in the previous round, but they have to try to reach the final. Morata is expected to partner with Torres again. There was criticism that the coach released many young players, such as 18-year-old Pedri, as well as Garcia, Sanchez and others. However, this is the tactic of a coach and he obviously wants to build a young team with a future perspective, but whether it is appropriate to play young players in such matches, without enough experience, will be seen in the match with Italy.
The Italians simply look unstoppable in their matches so far, with the only weaker performance against Austria. In all other matches, Italy simply showed a very high class and continues to strive for the semifinals. With Spain, they are unlikely to relax and underestimate the opponent, and according to many bookmakers, they are the favorite to win the match this Tuesday at Wembley.
After missing the 2018 World Cup, Roberto Mancini’s players are gradually getting back in shape and showing many intriguing matches. Over 30 matches the team has not lost, which in itself speaks for the form of the team. Stable defensive play and quick counterattacks on the wings are one of the team’s tactics. Imobile manages to score in most matches, and at the same time the team is young and has a future.
