As reported by ESPN, of course, the team of Vicente del Bosque, the reigning European Cup and World Cup, is expected to win in Kiev on Sunday.

After seeing action that bulldoze Britain Italy in the quarterfinals and crushed Der Panzer, many people change the predictions of the winner.

Although La Furia Roja had to strengthen the defense, Spain has not demonstrated its aggressive attack on a few years ago.

Del Bosque appears to be still confused to choose a striker. The choice fell on Cesc Fabregas, Fernano Torres and Alvaro Negredo. Results are also varied. But it seems that the most effective 4-6-0 formation.

Play the defending champion in the European Cup this time it seems quite difficult. When Jesus Navas and Torres on the bench, Spain looks less dynamic.

Italy initially appear less confident, until finally they beat England on penalties.

The key is to make Andrea Pirlo penalty kick lever-style ‘Panenka’. The veteran midfielder has become a very influential player in this tournament, making people wonder why AC Milan leave Juventus pick it up free in the summer.

Italy is expected to play defensive against Germany, but it was Pirlo makes Azzurri showed up to attack.

Spanish players that should be observed: Jordi Alba.

Alba has attracted much attention in this tournament, he became a defender of a thick wall of impenetrable opponent.

Italian players that should be observed: Mario Balotelli.

Which attracted the attention of Italy is always himself. Especially after seeing action in the semifinals to break into the German goal. Balotelli played a major role for the upswing Italy up to the finals.

He offers a lot of things: speed, power, and execution of the ball which makes it the most exciting young players in world football. This is an opportunity to showcase his ability.

Seems to be exciting to see the fight between Xavi and Andrea Pirlo. Duo feeders are both labeled as the best midfielder in the world.

They control the tempo of the game is for each team. The way to break the opponent’s defense in Kiev later depending on the skill of their feet together.

Trivia: Of the four match Spain vs. Italy in a European Cup final, three ended in a draw. One game is a victory for Italy in 1998.

Prediction: No doubt, Italy is now in the same condition in 2006. The heat-fixing the problem would lead to their success.
