ITALY or SPAIN? We'll find out the first finalist at Euro 2020 tonight with England or Denmark lying in wait on Sunday.
On balance, the Italians have been the most impressive nation at Euro 2020 and have built on their pre-tournament momentum with some impressive performances and results. Roberto Mancini has built a club-like mentality within the squad and they would make worthy finalists.
An apparently under-performing Spain stand in their way and despite coming in for some serious criticism at home they're semi-finalist and top scorers at the competition after knocking in 11 goals in their last three games – although ‘own goal' is now thier top goalscorer!
The bookies make Italy favourites to qualify at 3/4 with Spain at even money. The Azzurri are a best price 6/4 at Ladbrokes to do the business inside 90 minutes while Spain can be backed at 9/4 with Marathonbet.
Both sides went to extra-time in the round of 16 while Spain needed penalty kicks to get past Switzerland in the quarter-finals so this one could go the distance too. It's 9/4 for the game to finish level, 5/1 to be decide in extra time and the same price to be decided on penalties.
The street-wise Italians could just have the edge however. Their mix of creative flair and dogged defensiveness should be enough to see them frustrate the Spanish while being able to nick one or two at the other end of the pitch.
