Spain just confirmed their starting XI for the upcoming match against Italy —20:45 CET, Estadio Santiago Bernabeu—.

Spain Starting XI: De Gea, Carvajal, Pique, Ramos, Jordi Alba, Busquets, Koke, Isco, Iniesta, Silva, Asensio.

Italy Starting XI (To be confirmed): Buffon, Darmian, Barzagli, Bonucci, Spinazzola, De Rossi, Verratti, Candreva, Insigne, Belotti, Immobile.

It will be interesting to see how Marco Asensio performs in that false striker role as so far he doesn’t know the position. Asensio is comfortable playing behind the attacker and also in both wings but he could also help Real Madrid if he proves he can play as a false number 9.
