Albania is on the outside but will have the difficult task of beating Spain to reach the next stage.

First time

Spain were superior during the first 45 minutes. With their well-known playing style, with lots of ball possession and passing, the Fury had their first big opportunity, just a minute in, after Pedri crossed, forcing Donnarumma to make a great save. Italy set out to defend and come out on counterattacks, with quick transitions, which did not happen due to the strong marking that the Spanish made after losing possession of the ball. Spain created opportunities in every way, in the ninth minute, Niko Willians headed from the small area and narrowly missed opening the scoring. At 23, it was Morata's turn, after Yamal made a great move, the ball fell to 7, who spun on the defender and finished, to a good save by Donnarumma. A minute later Fabian Ruiz hit a beautiful shot from outside the area that the Italian saved with his fingertips. The Azzurri managed their only shot in the 45th minute, with Chiesa, but he got the ball poorly and sent it over the goal.
