Italy vs Spain, UNL 06.102.201

With the top leagues on hold, Italy and Spain will renew their hostilities when they face off in the semi-finals of the 2020-21 UEFA Nations League on Wednesday evening after both sides finished top of their respective League A groups.

The two teams met in the semis of the Euros and took that battle all the way to post-match penalties which Italy won en route to winning the tournament.

We will explore Odibets Free Bet prices for our betting tips in this preview.

ITALY

Italy have been on a terrific unbeaten record. Since losing 1-0 to Portugal in the inaugural version of this competition 3 years ago, they have gone 37 matches without defeat across all competitions.

This run has seen them win the Euros in the summer and they could yet end the year with a bang by adding the Nations League on top of it.

The Azzurri haven’t been as impressive in this competition though, barely sneaking past the Netherlands to the top spot by the thinnest of margins after picking up just three wins and three draws. They nevertheless come into this game in high spirits following their 5-0 win over Lithuania.

SPAIN

Spain have blown hot and cold in recent times. Just like Italy, their path to this semifinal has been bumpy, having lost to Ukraine and drawing with Switzerland before they brought out their sharp claws in a 6-0 mauling of Germany back in November, which just about lifted them to the summit of League A Group 4.

La Roja’s loss to Italy in the Euro semis seemed to still be on their minds when they resumed the world cup qualifiers with a 2-1 loss to Sweden. They have however got back to default settings with back to back wins over Georgia and Kosovo to steady the ship.

Spain will be looking to their emerging stars like Ferran Torres and Pablo Fornals who both scored last time out to carry them to Sunday’s final in San Siro against either Belgium or France, who cross swords in the semifinals on other side of the bracket.

ITALY VS SPAIN MATCH PREVIEW AND BETTING PREDICTIONS

Spain have not had success in recent meetings against the Azzuri but it’s not for lack of effort. In the Euro 2020 semifinals that they lost to them on penalties, they enjoyed the lion’s share of the possession and had more goal attempts and corners that they just couldn’t take advantage of. This is their style and they always stick to it no matter what. We expect more of the same here with Italy happy to keep them at arm’s length and trying to hit them on the counter. With Spain likely to enjoy more possession, we fancy them to win more corners in this game @ 2.05 with Odibets as our initial football betting tip today.

There is little separating these two European heavyweights and with so much on the line here we feel this will be another close game with very thin margins. We anticipate a 1st half that will see both teams trying to size each other up. With the visitors looking for redemption, we fancy they will take the early initiative in the game and we are backing them to win/draw in the first half with just one or none of the teams finding the back of the net @ 1.69 with Odibets as our final call here.
