Italy has steamrolled through their competition so far in the tournament. They knocked out tournament favourites Belgium in the quarterfinals with a 1-2 win at the Allianz Arena. Players like Insigne and Berardi continue to trouble opposition defences with their flair and pace, Verratti and Barella have been key players who control the game from the midfield with constant ball retention and crucial assists.
Spain on the other hand have regained some of their clinical attacking prowess and dominance, which was missing in the initial stages of the tournament. They secured their crucial win over a 10 man Switzerland after Freuler was sent off for his challenge on Gerard Moreno. They scraped a close win on penalties over Switzerland. Morata has yet to give a convincing performance for Spain, he will look to make his mark and lead his team to the final.
