Match 2 of the qualifying round of 2018 World Cup cycle, in Russian Italy – Spain will take place on Thursday 6 October at 21:45 (Moscow time) on Juventus stadium in Turin. This is the most interesting game of the second round of World Cup qualifying cycle in Russia in the European group. The draw brought Italy and Spain in Group G, where also play Macedonia, Israel, Albania and Liechtenstein. It is obvious that between the Italians and the Spaniards will develop the struggle for the only direct ticket to the world championship, while one of these teams will go to the play-offs.
In summer, the two teams played at the European Championship in France and met in an internal duel in the 1/8 finals. Italy held a model and won the match 2: 0 and stopped only at the world champion Germans, who lost on penalties. Spain also resigned as champions of Europe and now she plays without any valid title. Interestingly, both teams after the continental championship changed head coaches. Italy now runs Giampiero Ventura, who from 2011 to 2016 quite successfully worked with Torino. And after the departure of Spain Vicente del Bosque led Julen Julen Lopetegui. The last two years he has worked with Porto, and before that was head coach of the Spanish team of all ages up to the youth team.
Italy started in World Cup qualifying cycle in Russia with guest victory over Israel 3:1. A goal scored in this meeting, Pele, Candreva from the penalty spot and Immobile. At the beginning of the second half of the meeting when the score was 2-1 in favor of the Squadra Azzurra she remained with ten men – for a second yellow card was deleted by Giorgio Chiellini. Nevertheless, Italy managed to keep the winning result and even develop an advantage at the end of the meeting. It was the sixth victory of Italy for the last nine matches, which thus allowed to extend unbeaten team in the qualifying round of World Cup to 28 matches. 19 of which Italy won nine times and played in a draw. And the last defeat suffered in October 2004 at a party in Slovenia. House Italy in such matches and not lost, winning 43 victories and six times played a draw.
Spain in the first round played against Liechtenstein, and did not leave any chance to the opponent, sending its gates eight unanswered goals. According to two goals scored in this meeting, Diego Costa, David Silva and Alvaro Morata and Vitolo and Sergi Roberto scored one ball. By the way, seven of the eight goals Red Fury scored in the second half. It is worth noting that the match took place in a small stadium in Sierra Leone, which seats only 13 thousand fans and clogged the eyeballs, it would be hardly possible to a game anywhere at the Camp Nou or the Vicente Calderon, or even less spacious, but still huge compared to Leonean Mestalla stadium. The very victory was the fifth in a row for Spain in the qualifying rounds of the World Championships and extended its unbeaten run in qualifying Mundial to 54 matches, 42 of which she won. The last defeat in a game like Spain has suffered as much as in 1993, when on the road gave way to Denmark with a minimum score of 0:1.
Three of the last five matches between the national teams of Italy and Spain ended in a draw and, most likely, just completed, and their upcoming meeting. Both teams will play with caution, as it is more important not to lose and not let the opponent advantages recruited glasses. Therefore, one should not expect high performance and colorful game.
Predictions for the match Italy – Spain (MON 2018, Europe, the group stage, round 2, 6 October): a draw 0:0; UNDER 2.5 goals in the match.
