In what will be a rematch of the UEFA EURO 2020 semi-finals, albeit not on that grand a scale, Spain will be seeking to take revenge in the UEFA Nations League against Italy, who knocked them out on penalties before going to win the tournament.
The official draw for the UEFA Nations League finals in the Netherlands in June has been made. The Netherlands will host Croatia in Rotterdam in the first semi-final on June 14, before Spain and Italy face off the following day in Enschede.

The final of the recently formed competition will take place on June 18 in Rotterdam.
Historically, Spain have beaten Italy 12 times – one more than they’ve tasted defeat at the hands of the Azzurri. They have 16 draws between them in 39 encounters.
Spain lost the previous final 2-1 against France at the San Siro in the 2021 edition, whereas Italy settled for a third-place finish, beating Belgium with the same scoreline at Allianz Stadium.
