Manchester City midfielder Rodri believes Italy are among the “favorites” to win Euro 2024. Spain and Italy will meet in the group stage of Euro 2024, which will also include Croatia and Albania.

“It will be really tough. We played against Croatia at the Euro and in the Nations League, and they are a tricky opponent. Albania must also be respected. I repeat, it will be difficult. In 2021, we reached the semi-finals, but lost on penalties to Italy, who went on to win the trophy. A year ago, we got a bit of revenge in the Nations League, beating the Azzurri in the semi-finals. Italy has had its ups and downs in recent years. Italy remains a competitive team. The coach has changed, it’s true, but the characteristics are the same. Solid and competitive. They’re one of those teams that don’t usually score many goals, but have to be respected anyway. I think Italy are one of the favourites,” Rodri told Gazzetta. Italy and Spain will meet in the second match of the group phase on June 20 at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen. The Azzurri will make their Euro 2024 debut against Albania on June 15 and will play two friendlies to prepare for the competition, against Turkey and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
