Spain vs Italy Prediction: La Roja to bag three points in high contest EURO 2024 game in Gelsenkirchen

This will be the 11th encounter between Spain and Italy at a major tournament, across the Euros (8) and World Cup (3), a record between two European nations.

Spain and Italy kick-started their UEFA Euro 2024 campaign with wins and are now set to face each other on June 20 at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen. The winner of this fixture will book their place directly in the round of 16 of the European Championship. Ahead of the Spain vs Italy clash, let us take a look at the predictions.

Spain vs Italy Prediction

According to the Opta supercomputer, Spain are made the favourites for this match with a 45.8% win probability, while Italy’s chances stand at 27.5%, and the draw is at 26.8%. Despite Italy’s resilience, Spain holds a slight upper hand going into this game. We at Insidesport.IN predict La Roja to win the game 2-1.

Spain form

Spain, currently at the top of the group, have been impressive this year. La Furia Roja eased past Croatia with a 3-0 scoreline in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this week. Spain have ushered in a new generation of players and will need to rely on their younger stars to shine at Euro 2024.

Lamine Yamal, who was exceptional against Croatia, will aim to make a similar impact this week. Yamal, who became the youngest player to feature for any team in European Championship history when he started against Croatia, had the most touches in the opposition box (6), created the joint-most chances (3), and provided an assist for Dani Carvajal’s first international goal.

Italy form

Italy are currently in second place in Group B and have stepped up to the plate in recent months. The Azzurri edged Albania with a narrow 2-1 victory in their first game of their UEFA Euro 2024 campaign and will be confident ahead of this fixture. Italy’s comeback success saw them win their opening encounter in four consecutive major tournaments (European Championships and World Cups) for the first time in their history. This victory sets a solid foundation for the Azzurri as they look to build on that performance against Spain.
