UEFA EURO 2024 Italy vs Spain: When and where to watch in India, USA and UK | Football News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The reigning champion, Italy, is set to face Spain on Thursday in one of the most highly anticipated matches at Euro 2024. Both teams have won their opening games, with Spain leading Group B on goal difference.
Croatia and Albania are the other teams in the group. The game is scheduled to start at 9 p.m. local time (1900 GMT) in Gelsenkirchen.
Italy had a close call against Albania, with Nedim Bajrami scoring the quickest goal in Euros history at 23 seconds, but they managed to come back and win 2-1, avoiding a potential upset. On the other hand, Spain had a relatively easy 3-0 win against Croatia, who were semifinalists in the World Cup.
In their previous Euros meeting, Italy emerged victorious against Spain on penalties in the semifinals after a 1-1 draw through extra time at Wembley Stadium. They then went on to clinch the title by defeating England, also on penalties.

Leading up to this encounter, Spain’s defender Aymeric Laporte has returned to training, ensuring that coach Luis de la Fuente has a fully fit squad at his disposal. Italian media suggest that coach Luciano Spalletti may make some changes to his lineup, possibly including Gianluca Mancini and Bryan Cristante.
This marks the fifth straight Euros where Spain and Italy are facing each other, with both teams having won twice in their past four meetings. Interestingly, Spain was unable to dominate possession against Croatia, which was the first time in 136 competitive matches that they had less than 50% of the ball.
Italy is aiming to equal the record of three European Championship titles and could become only the second team to win back-to-back Euros after Spain achieved the feat in 2008 and 2012.
In Spain’s victory over Croatia, Lamine Yamal made history by becoming the youngest player ever to feature in a European Championship at the age of 16 years and 338 days.
