Italy take on Spain on Monday 27th June, 2016, with kickoff at 17:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC1.

The final day of the round of sixteen brings us the most intriguing and high-quality match of them all, Italy v Spain. Two nations with clear footballing philosophies and masses of intelligence should provide a wonderful contrast to the kick and run that has plagued much of 2016, and this game should be etched into the diary of every self-respecting football fan.

The Italians are underdogs, but also far more than the sum of their parts, and that should strike fear into the hearts of a Spanish team that fell prey to a late goal and lost versus Croatia.
