Sergio Ramos and his teammates probably didn't expect to face Italy in the Round of 16 after their good performances early in the tournament. However, their surprising loss against Croatia in the last match of the Group Stage has its consequences and now they'll face Italy, a team that has been slowly and quietly getting wins with a team that certainly doesn't look like the Italy of the glory days.
However, new Chelsea manager and Italy coach Antonio Conte has managed to build a very solid squad around hard-working players like Candreva, Giaccherini, De Rossi and obviously a great defensive line like Bonucci, Barzagli and Chiellini.
It will not be easy for Spain to create many scoring chances against this Italy team, and while Del Bosque's pupils should dominate the tempo of the game and the possession of the ball, Italy will patiently wait for their chance off set pieces and counterattacks. A clash of styles.
