Italy vs Spain streaming options: Where to watch Buffon vs De Gea in Euro 2016 Last 16

June 25, 2016 By Michelle Bonsu
Italy and Spain will lock horns in a titanic round of 16 clash at the Stade de France on Monday, June 27th. Here are your live TV listings & online streaming options for Italy vs. Spain.

It's going to be a re-match of the Euro 2012 final...except in this case, it will be during the UEFA Euro 2016 round of 16. Certainly, both fans and neutrals would have wanted to see Italy vs. Spain at a later date, but unfortunately at the end of 90 - or more minutes - of action, one of these highly decorated sides will be saying either arrivederci or adios to this tournament.

Who will it be?

Italy

Without the services of key midfielders Claudio Marchisio and Marco Verratti due to injury, as well as Andrea Pirlo due to Antonio Conte's snub, many viewed this Azzurri side as much weaker than in past tournaments. However, as we have seen time and time again, never rule out Italy. They made a roaring start to Euro 2016 as they soundly defeated no. 2 ranked Belgium in their opener, followed by downing Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Sweden with a late goal.

Despite a drastic dip in performance against the Scandinavians, this was enough for them to head into the round of 16 as group winners. And although they slipped up by losing to Ireland - their first since June 1994 - it nonetheless had no impact on their group standing. Despite not boasting individual stars like other sides, Italy have done well thus far as a collective.

Certainly, their attack, whilst industrious may not set the pitch alight. But their defense, led by Juventus trio Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci, and Andrea Barzagli, coupled with the evergreen Gianluigi Buffon between the posts is among the strongest in the business.

Conte certainly would have wanted to face Spain much later on, but Croatia spoiled those plans by edging out La Furia Roja after playing arguably their best game at this tournament so far.

A picture is truly worth a thousand words: Conte was not shy about expressing his emotions, but is this pained expression because Italy conceded to Ireland...or more likely because Croatia's win means that the Azzurri have to take on Spain next?

Fortunately for the ex-Juventus boss, he will have pretty much everyone available for this crunch clash. Antonio Candreva is the only likely absentee, as the Lazio man is suffering from a hamstring problem. Buffon, who missed out on their last match due to illness, will again resume his spot between the posts. And having rotated his squad against Ireland - which did not pan out as planned - Conte will naturally recall his strongest players into the starting XI for Monday's match.

Spain

Just as Conte was hoping to take on Spain at a later juncture, Vicente Del Bosque is definitely thinking the same thing. Had La Furia Roja not given up a late, late goal to concede top spot to Croatia, they would have faced Portugal in the round 16. Instead, they will now take on familiar foe Italy, which will represent a formidable opponent as they chase an unprecedented third straight Euro title.

Although losing top spot will certainly leave a sour taste in Spain's mouths, they will need to regroup quickly. Italy will be determined for exacting revenge after their 4-0 humiliating defeat in the Euro 2012 final and that will obviously be an extra motivating factor for ending their long and frustrating competitive record against the three-time Euro champions.

Del Bosque has no injury nor suspension concerns to trouble him ahead of this game, so he will again be able to rely on the same starting XI he has used in every single one of Spain's group stage games so far.

David De Gea had a miserable game against the Croatians but will nonetheless retain his spot as Spain's no. 1 shot-stopper for this match

Naturally, having lost their last games, both Spain and Italy will be looking to get back on track. Will Spain continue their good competitive record against the Italians as they hope to make it a fourth Euro title this July? Or will the Azzurri send La Furia Roja packing after the first knockout rounds?
