Italy vs. Spain

Wembley Stadium | London, England | Tuesday, 3pm ET
The Pick: Italy +135

Let’s be honest: the first semifinal of Euro 2020 has everything you could ask for in a major tournament knockout match.

From a prestige standpoint, it doesn’t get much better on the international scene than Italy and Spain. The pair have won five World Cups and four European Championships between them, with the Italians last claiming glory at the 2006 World Cup, two years before the Spanish began a run of three consecutive major trophies with a triumph in Euro 2008.

Coincidentally, La Roja ended that treble in style at Euro 2012 with a 4-0 dismantling of Italy in the final, the second of four consecutive meetings between the two nations in the knockout stages of Europe’s greatest soccer competition.
