Betting Tip: No Goal Scorer - Italy vs Spain @ 11/2 with williamhill

The pick of the Euro 2016 last sixteen clashes takes place on Monday evening, with Italy being “rewarded” after winning Group E by being pitted against a Spain side who finished second in Group D.

The Azzurri executed a perfect game plan to beat Belgium in their opening clash before a slender win against the Swedes. The group was already in the bag before a final game against the Republic of Ireland where the boys in green beat a reserve team 1-0.

Antonio Conte will depart for Chelsea FC when Italy’s campaign is over, although the coach will be optimistic that his side can get one over a Spain side who have been hot and cold at the tournament thus far.

La Roja claimed a late winner against Czech Republic before a comprehensive 3-0 win against Turkey although an early goal against Croatia flattered to deceive as the latter came storming back to win 2-1.

Alvaro Morata is the joint-top scorer at Euro 2016, although he will face former Juventus team-mates Chiellini, Bonucci and Barzagli, not to mention a gargantuan keeper in Gianluigi Buffon.

Morata came to life against Turkey before scoring against Croatia, although his threat might be snuffed out and Conte will also have a game plan to deal with Andres Iniesta and his ability to fashion chances from midfield.

The same will apply to David Silva and Cesc Fabregas, with Spain needing to be patient and keep their own discipline against a side which has already caged a lively Belgium side featuring Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne.

We’re going to take a punt on No Goalscorer in this clash despite the mouth-watering look to the tie and then the game will be decided in either extra-time or penalties. You can bet both teams have been practising their spot kicks in the past few days.
