In France, during the summer, Italy will be in a group with Belgium, Sweden and Ireland while Spain will meet Turkey, Czech Republic and Croatia. Check out our football prediction.
Azzurri started long series of controls. First, however, they will play a repeat of the final of Euro 2016, where they lost against Spain with 0:4. The players, who dropped out are the injured Marco Veratti, Andrea Barzagli and Ciro Immobile. The experienced defender of Juventus was replaced at the team by his teammate - Daniele Rugani. There is a problem before the duel with Spain`s and with Gianluigi Buffon. The captain of the Azzurri will hardly be risked and at the door, we will see someone between Matia Perrin and Salvatore Sirigu. As a partner of Leonardo Bonucci in the center of the defense, Antonio Conte will choose between Francesco Acerbi, Davide Astori and Andrea Ranocchia. The former coach of Juventus, Thiago Motta, will be back. The experienced midfielder of the PSG will replace the injured Marco Veratti and will partner with the Lazio player - Marco Parolo in midfield. In the attack, the coach will rely on Graziano Pelle and Eder.
Spain also launched a series of controls with which to prepare for Euro 2016. In addition to Italy, by June La Fury will play more with Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, and South Korea. Against Italy, Vicente del Bosque will not be able to rely on the injured Sergio Busquets. It is expected that half of Barcelona to be replaced in the starting lineup by the player of Athletic Bilbao - Mikel San Jose. The good form of Alvaro Morata, which he has demonstrated in the recent matches by fixed picks of Juventus, will ensure his titular place in Spain`s attack in this match. A chance for expression, probably as a reserve will be received and by Aric Aruric. We will also see the goalkeeper of Manchester United - David de Hea.
Italy will act in a very young lineup, and without some key players, such as Gianluigi Buffon, Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Pirlo and Andrea Barzalgi. Spain has a lot more experienced stock and looks like the favorite in the derby.
