Betting tip International: Italy - Spain
Thursday, 24.03.2016 at 20:45 hour
The break of the international matches is over now and is back with some great duels. The first match is between the world champion of 2006 Italy and the champion of the title matches four years later Spain. Kick-off for this World champion duel is on Thursday at 8.45 p.m..
Current Performance of Italy - It is always hard to judge the performance of a national team. It is a long time ago that they have met each other for a match. The last results of the international matches could have been better for Italy. In November 2015 when they have played against Rumania the match ended only in a drawn with a score of 2:2 in front of their own audience. Only a few days before, they had to suffer a defeat against the first of the world ranking, Belgium with a score of 3:1. At least the last duty match was won by Italy. In October they played against Norway and won with a score of 2:1. For the European championship in France, Buffon & Co still have the role of the favourites but at the moment other nations perform better than the counter eleven. For the matches against Spain and against Germany a few days later, the coach appointed two new players in the squad. One of them is Federico Bernadeschi from Florence and the other one is the Brazilian by birth Jorginho from the SSC Neapel. Unfortunately they have to play without Marco Verratti who is playing at the PSG in France. He is injured and has already left Italy to go back to France. The fact that Antonio Conte has announced that he will left after the European championship could cause trouble. Rumours say that the coach has good chances for Chelsea London.
Current Performance of Spain - The “Furia Roja” as the Spanish national team is also called has a lot of good and self-confident players to offer for the upcoming match. Especially the player of the FC Barcelona can show their talent. Just as well as David de Gea from Manchester United who is the goalkeeper. Beside this the national team of Coach Vicente del Bosque had to suffer only one defeat all over the whole season of 2015. This was against the Netherlands when the match ended with a score of 0:2. Otherwise the results have been more than impressing. Not only that they haven’t lost one of the last six national matches, they also didn’t get one goal from their opponents. Amongst other things they have won against England in November 2015 with a sovereign result of 2:0. For the match against Italy Thiago Alcantara from the FC Bayern München and the 35 year old Ariz Aduriz may celebrate their comeback at the national team. The team has to play without Andres Iniesta and in addition there is also no Diego Costa in the squad who was criticised lately for his lack of discipline.
