Three teams fight for two qualifying places in Euro 2012 Group C tonight, with Spain, Italy and Croatia all in with a chance of making it into the quarter-finals of the competition.

Republic of Ireland are the only team with nothing but pride to play for tonight, but Italy will know not to take Giovanni Trapattoni's men lightly in Poznan.

Holders Spain are on four points alongside Croatia, with the two side going head-to-head for a place in the last eight. Vicente Del Bosque's side are in prime position though, having beaten the Irish 4-0 last time out.

Croatia only managed a 3-1 win last Sunday, and so know they need a positive result to stand a chance of beating Italy to second spot - providing they beat the Irish.

Cesare Prandelli's side know a two-goal win will be needed to stand much of a chance, although a 2-2 draw between Spain and Croatia knocks them out.

The winners and runners-up will move on to face the top two from Group D - likely to be France and England - next weekend.
