Italy v Spain: Betting Preview
Italy and Spain collide in Paris this evening and we've put together what we think are best value bets on offer in this clash between the two European giants.
This is undoubtedly the biggest game of the tournament so far and it sees the two Euro 2012 finalists go head to head once again.
Spain ran out 4-0 winners in that game in Kiev four years ago and Italy will be keen to dish out some revenge this time around.
The Italians were initially written off by many coming in to this tournament but an outstanding 2-0 win over Belgium in their opener silenced the majority of critics. They followed that win with another three points against Sweden and finished the group stage with a 1-0 defeat to Ireland, although Antonio Conte made wholesale changes in that game having already qualified to the knockout stages.

Spain opened their campaign with back to back victories over Czech Republic and Turkey before succumbing to a shock defeat to eventual group winners Croatia.
There really doesn't seem to be much separating these two teams at the moment and that's why we're backing a draw in the 90 minutes at 2/1.
Italy have kept clean sheets in four of their last five games and we really like the look of Italy keeping a clean sheet which is also priced at 2/1.
