Spain lift trophy after beating Italy in Euro 2012 final
As enemies disappear, they aren’t much more familiar than Italy and Spain.
Football’s heavyweights face off for the fourth consecutive European Championship, and you have to wonder if this rich history will play a part in Tuesday’s semi-final.
The pair played a 0-0 draw in Vienna at Euro 2008, before Spain lifted the trophy and began to dominate European football. There was another stalemate in the Euro 2012 group stages, but Italy then felt the full strength of La Roja in their 4-0 defeat in the final as Spain won back-to-back titles.
The Azzurri ended Spain’s attempt to win a third straight title with a 2-0 win in the round of 16 at Euro 2016 and now the European giants are set to leave five years later.
In total, the nations have met 37 times and nothing separates them, with 11 wins each and 15 draws. Bookmakers also have a close fight on Tuesday, with Italy at 4-5 to reach the final and Spain 11-10.
Maybe Layers looked at their sports almanac when pricing the semi-finals.
