In a lot of ways, it'll be like looking in the mirror for Spain, especially if they start Torres up front. But in the end, Spain's bench depth and midfield are superior to Italy's, so they get the 1-0 win. But with Spain's back line, it will get dicey. Oh, and Buffon is sick, so watching it go 1-0 italy or pk's is not all that impossible.
