Spain vs Italy Predictions

Spain vs Italy predictions are renowned for their difficulty, especially when the fixtures form part of a tournament. This is no exception and here we give our Spain vs Italy match preview, covering as many bases as we can.

Although currently Spain vs Italy betting odds are not yet available, we analyse some early Spain vs Italy betting statistics, and offer some guidance regarding tips and most appropriate brand at which to bet.

1. Spain vs Italy Preview

This fixture is the middle game of three that each will play in Group B. Prior to this clash Spain will have played Croatia, whilst Italy will have taken on Albania; so they will both be hoping to arrive with maximum points on the board. The match will take place in Gelsenkirchen, at what will undoubtedly be a sold out 50,000 capacity Veltins Arena, on Thursday 20 June, with a 9pm local time kick off.

Any early Spain vs Italy match predictions are tricky as the outcome of those opening games will inevitably have an effect on this contest. The fact that Spain are ranked at number 8 and Italy at number 9 in the current world standings, is a good indication of how close these two sides are matched.

Looking back at the Spain vs Italy stats over the years also demonstrates that fact, with the Spanish coming out on top 14 times to Italy's 10, in the 36 previous encounters. This clash actually represents a centenary between the two nations, as their first ever fixture occurred 100 years ago in Milan, back in 1924.

The most recent was last year when a late winner earned Spain a 2-1 victory, but Italy will point to their meeting at Wembley Stadium at the last Euros, when they triumphed in a semi-final penalty shoot-out. That will undoubtedly have hurt the Spanish; indeed that was the first time in 6 semi-final appearances at a major tournament that they had failed to progress to the final.

Spain definitely made their way into these finals in Germany in a lot more comfort, winning 7 of their 8 matches to top their group; whereas Italy finished well behind England and just managed to hold off Ukraine on goal difference, to claim the runners-up spot. With that in mind, although the Spain vs Italy betting odds are not currently available, the Spanish are likely to be marginal favourites. In our Euro 2024 betting odds article, you'll find more general information about the tournament favourites, which may also be useful when making a decision about which team to support in this match.

Both of these sides have a rich history in the European Championships with relatively similar records. Spain have won the tournament on three occasions from eleven appearances, to Italy's two from ten. But of course the most recent of those two successes was when the Italians claimed the trophy in dramatic style three years ago, beating England on penalties and therefore come into this tournament as the holders. The last of Spain's titles came in 2012, when their opponents in the final held in Kyiv were... Italy; giving yet another edge to proceedings.

3. Spain vs Italy Betting Tips

As the game approaches there will be countless Spain vs Italy tips flying around, but with the Spanish kicking off their campaign against a notoriously good tournament team in Croatia, they could change on the strength of what happens in that opening clash. Should they fail to secure victory and the Italians overcome a tough Albanian challenge in their opener, then the pressure could be on, which will definitely be reflected in the odds of the best online betting sites in UK with promo codes.

Nevertheless, the Spaniards have been improving steadily and are one or two shrewd punters dark-horses for the competition, so at this point choosing the Spain vs Italy favourites would have to lean towards the Spanish. The big thing with Italy is nobody ever really knows which side will turn up. They are just as likely to bow out at the group stages as they are to conquer all before them and go on and retain their title.

All that means is that any Spain vs Italy betting predictions have to be treated with a degree of caution. With it being the middle game of the group it could develop into a cagey affair, but an early goal either way would force the other out, so it could be worth a punt on a combination correct score/first goalscorer bet, but in who's favour is still open to debate at this stage. It may turn out that England vs Denmark betting odds are more clear in terms of indicating a sure bet, so you may consider backing one of these teams instead of the winner of Spain vs Italy game.
