The first semi-final of the Euro 2020 will see the high-flying Italians taking on Spain at the Wembley Stadium. Italy have had a splendid tournament so far and are one of the favourites in the Euro 2020 Winner Odds. Meanwhile, despite their torrid start to the campaign, Spain looked a much better side in the last few games. Stay updated on all Euro 2020 News and Updates with us at Betting.co.uk.
Italy have been in spectacular form of late and are also on a 32-match unbeaten streak. Italy finished at the top of their group with 9 points and a goal difference of 7. They have won all five of their matches in the tournament while scoring 11 goals and conceding just twice. Italy have also kept 11 clean sheets in their last 13 matches while scoring 2+ goals in all but one of those matches.
Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne have been providing the attacking threat for the Italians. They have scored two goals each, while Marco Verratti has been the creative force in their midfield with two assists. Alongside their defence, the three of them will be crucial to their chances of winning this Italy vs Spain Euro 2020 semi-final tie.
The Spaniards had a nightmare start to their Euro 2020 campaign with COVID-19 cases and two draws in their opening matches against Sweden and Poland. As a result, they finished 2nd in Group E behind Sweden with 5 points and a goal difference of 5. Spain also had to play extra time in both of their knockouts against Croatia and Switzerland.
However, Spain are the highest-scoring team in the tournament with 14 goals and also kept two clean sheets. Morata, Torres and Sarabia are their leading goal scorers with two goals each, while Olmo and Moreno have assisted two goals each. Spain have clicked offensively in their recent matches and will need more of that to breach the Italian defence.
The Azzurri are the bookies’ favourite in this Italy vs Spain Euro 2020 semi-final. Our featured bookmaker, 888Sport, offers 7/5 for an Italian win in 90 minutes and 3/4 for them to qualify for the final. Meanwhile, a draw has odds of 21/10, 21/10 for Spain to win in full-time, and 1/1 for Spain to reach the finals. Moving on to the goalscorer market for betting on Euro 2020, Ciro Immobile is the favourite to score with odds of 9/2, while Alvaro Morata is Spain’s best bet for a goal and have odds of 11/2.
Both sides have struggled in major tournaments since their 2012 Euro final matchup, which Spain won. Italy even failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. However, the early exits of most of the tournament favourites coupled with an upturn in form see the Italians being tournament favourites alongside England. Nevertheless, Spain aren’t to be taken lightly, especially considering their recent scoring form. Hence, 888Sport’s both teams to score at 17/20 looks like the safest bet for the tie. You can also go for a riskier market like Italy to win and both teams to score bet at 9/2 odds.
