Match Analysis


Italy and Spain will resume their rivalry on tonight at the Juventus Stadium in Turin, as the two European heavyweights go head-to-head in Group G for their second 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification match. The Azzurri beat La Roja 2-0 at UEFA Euro 2016 easily but are now without manager Antonio Conte and new boss Giampiero Ventura faces a big challenge against a surging Spain team. Spain will be out for revenge in Turin after scoring no fewer than eight goals in their Group G opener against Liechtenstein Italy used a perfect tactical plan by shutting down Spain attack and hitting them on the counter with superb long balls to cruise to a 2-0 win during Euro 2016. They'll approach tonight’s match with the same tactic, but unfortunately they will have to do without one of their best defenders and a key component of the three-man back line Giorgio Chiellini since he was suspended after picking up a red card on their win against Israel. The biggest question is whether the Italians can cope with Chiellini's absence against a very prolific Spain with an attack with the likes of in form striker Diego costa.
