Spain vs Italy LIVE: Man City treble winner Rodri starts for La Roja while Newcastle target Barella lines up for Azzuri as rivals clash in Nations League semi-finals

European heavyweights Spain and Italy will look to begin their new eras with a bang when they face off for a spot in the Nations League final.

La Roja are ushering in a new guard following their last 16 penalty shootout elimination at the World Cup by Morocco.

Luis Enrique resigned after the humiliating exit and has since been replaced by the country’s Under-21 coach Luis de la Fuente.

Italy suffered further embarrassment having not even qualified for Qatar and then lost their opening EURO 2024 qualifier to England.

But Gli Azzurri will be out for revenge when they take on Spain, who ended their world-record 37-game unbeaten run in 2021.

The winner of this tie will take on Croatia in the Nations League final on Sunday.
