There is a massive UEFA Nations League match taking place on Wednesday night, as Spain take on Euro 2020 winners Italy in Milan. The pair met at last summer’s European Championship at the semi final stage, where the Azzurri came away victorious on penalties.

The pair never fail to produce enthralling encounteres, and so often tend to meet on the big stage. With the Euro 2020 semi still fresh in the memory of both sets of fans, Wednesday’s game promises to be both a fascinating technical and emotional duel.

Roberto Mancini and Luis Enrique still continue in their respective dugouts after the major tournament and, ahead of next year’s World Cup in Qatar, this meeting is yet another chance for either coach to test out new players but also to test the squad in a high intensity matchup.

While it is far from as significant as a major tournament, both sides will want to clinch the silverware that’s on offer, when facing either Belgium or France in the final. Here are all the details you need to know so you can watch and enjoy this match.
