Former coach Fabio Capello has given a detailed analysis of Italy’s upcoming Euro 2024 group clash with Spain, explaining why the match “will bear little resemblance” to previous encounters.

“Spain are always a very difficult team to play against, one of those teams that make almost everyone suffer. They have quality, both in the players and in the dribbling, I’m thinking of players like Rodri and Fabian Ruiz. And then there are individuals capable of creating a constant danger, like Yamal. If we add to all this the speed with which De La Fuente’s team can find depth, then we’ll have a better idea of what to expect tonight. Spain move the ball quickly and look for verticality, which makes them unpredictable in the offensive phase. Their weak point is in defence, where not everyone is always on the ball. De La Fuente’s men are very good precisely because they don’t give you time to reposition yourself correctly. Italy’s defense will have to be protected not only by Jorginho and Barella, but also by the application of the others, who will have to come back quickly. Frattesi and Pellegrini are excellent insertion players, they know how to go well into spaces and have quality in their play, they can hurt the Spanish defense,” said Capello via La Gazzetta dello Sport.
