The international break is really boring for football fans that have to wait two weeks to see their teams play again, but there are a few matches that make the international break worth. One of them happens today in Madrid when Spain takes on Italy in a giant World Cup Qualifier.
These two giant footballing nations are equal on points at the top of their group and the winner of this match virtually guarantees automatic qualification to next year’s World Cup in Russia.
Gerard Piqué, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets, Andrés Iniesta and Gerard Deulofeu will represent Barcelona in this match tonight, and this is one you definitely should not miss. It’s huge, it’s important, and it’s a game you MUST watch.
Spain starting XI:
De Gea; Carvajal, Piqué, Ramos, Alba; Koke, Busquets, Iniesta; Isco, Asensio, Silva
Italy starting XI:
Buffon; Darmian, Barzagli, Bonucci, Spinazzola; De Rossi, Verratti; Candreva, Belotti, Immobile, Insigne
