Italy vs Spain
Italy and Spain are set to face off in the first of two Euro 2020 semi-final clashes on Tuesday evening.
Heading into the game it is probably Italy who should be viewed as the favourites.
Gli Azzurri have had a superb tournament to date which saw them secure maximum points from their group and also dispatch one of the favourites, Belgium, in the quarter-finals.
Spain, on the other hand, struggled for goals early on in the competition and then had to take Switzerland all the way to penalties in the last round.
Azpilicueta on Jorginho & Busquets
Ahead of the game, Cezar Azpilicueta has been discussing Sergio Busquets and Jorginho.
Azpilicueta, who plays his club football with Chelsea, is expected to be facing off with Jorginho on Tuesday whilst lining up alongside Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets for Spain.
Now, Azpilicueta has been discussing the similarities between Jorginho and Busquets:
“They’re two great players who move well in short spaces: intelligent, tactically sharp, they judge space well and always choose the right pass for the team.
“Jorginho is a great footballer, very important for the way Italy play. He likes to be in contact with the ball, to control the game, he’s clever. The less he intervenes the more we have a chance of controlling the game.
“He’s surrounded by great players too and we’ll have to come up with a collective solution.
“I’m fortunate to be able to enjoy Jorginho with Chelsea and Sergio with the national team. Hopefully we can control Tuesday: Sergio’s very important for us in that.”
