spain vs italy h2h

The biggest match of Euro 2024 so far will take place on Thursday night when Spain and Italy meet in Gelsenkirchen. Both nations won their first matches at the tournament which sets this up as the decider for top spot in Group B.

The overall Spain vs Italy H2H record is very close which tells us all we need to know about the battles between these two huge footballing nations over the years. Let's pick out a few key stats relating to recent clashes ahead of their meeting on Thursday night.

Spain vs Italy H2H overview

Spain and Italy first met on a football pitch exactly 100 years ago. On that occasion, they played out a dull, goalless draw, but in the 35 matches since, plenty of goals have gone in at both ends. The overall H2H record is edged slightly by Spain

  • Spain wins: 14
  • Draws: 12
  • Italy wins: 10

It's only in the past 15 years that the H2H record has swung in favour of Spain. They haven't lost to Italy inside 90 minutes in any of the last five clashes. In fact, Italy have only won one of their last eleven matches against Spain without needing extra time and penalties.

Key Spain vs Italy H2H stats

Morata's the man

Alvaro Morata got his Euro 2024 campaign underway in Spain's opening match against Croatia by scoring the first goal of the game. His record against Italy suggests that the Spain captain could add to his tournament tally on Thursday night. The former Real Madrid man has scored in two of the last four clashes between the two nations.

Alvaro Morata to score anytime 9/5 (Betfred)

Spain likely to strike first

Spain struck first in their opening match at Euro 2024 and they have also made a habit of doing the same against Italy over the years. Spain have scored the opening goal of the match in four of their last five meetings with Italy and given they are more likely to be on the front foot on Thursday, they could do the same again.

Spain to score first – 4/5 (Betfred)

Action at both ends

This is a fixture that has historically been very kind to gamblers who like the both teams to score market. Although there is a chance that both teams could settle for a point given their strong starts to the tournament, the BTTS market has been covered in four of the last five matches between Spain and Italy.

Both teams to score – 10/11 (Betfred)

Goals at the death?

This is a fixture that has produced plenty of late goals in recent years. All five of the most recent matches between Spain and Italy have seen goals scored past the 75-minute mark. This has been a tournament for early goals but could there be some late drama in Gelsenkirchen on Thursday?

Goal after 72′ – 5/6 (Betfred)

A brace is on the cards

Two of the last four Spain vs Italy H2Hs have seen a player score a brace. Ferran Torres achieved the feat in 2021 and Isco did it in 2017. Both men were playing for Spain which makes us think it is more like to be a Spaniard again if one player is to score 2+ goals.

Ferran Torres to score 2+ goals – 22/1 (Betfred)
