France produced another fantastic performance to beat Spain 2-1 and win their first UEFA Nations League title in Milan.
Italy will have home field advantage and are very strong on defense. With both teams being without key attackers and Spain already lacking bite in attack the Azzurri’s back line could make the difference. Captain Giorgio Chiellini’s leadership in the back is unique and along with Leo Bonucci makes best central defense couple in the world. The defense went 11 games without allowing a goal before the Euro Round of 16 and hasn’t yielded more than one goal in an official match since 2017. Furthermore, Italy has posted consecutive clean sheets, against Lithuania and Switzerland.
The attack will miss striker Ciro Immobile, but Moise Kean scored twice in the rout of Lithuania. Federico Chiesa, who scored the goal in the matchup against Spain at Euro 2020, and Lorenzo Insigne also are among those who could trouble the Spain defense. The midfield is led by UEFA Player of the Year and Ballon d’Or candidate Jorginho, Nicola Barella, Marco Verratti and Manuel Locatelli.
On the other hand Spain dominates possession with its midfield of Sergio Busquets, Koke and Pedri. Ferran Torres and Mikel Oyarzabal are able scoring options with striker Alvaro Morata out with injury.
