Spain and Italy will go head-to-head in the final of the European U21 Championship on Tuesday evening.

These two countries already saw their senior squads facing the same situation last summer in the Euro 2012 final, where Spain won 4-0.

This time it's the youngsters' turn to conquer yet another title. Both teams arrive to the final with their players in excellent condition.

The game will be held at Teddy Stadium, in Jerusalem, where La Rojita will defend the title they won in Denmark in 2011. They beat Switzerland on that occasion.

Italy and Spain reach the final after an overwhelming display on the field during the semi-finals. The Spaniards beat Norway 3-0, while the Azzurrini beat Netherlands 1-0.

The Spanish team has the advantage over Italy, though. The team managed by Julen Lopetegui has yet to concede a goal, and striker Álvaro Morata is the top scorer of the tournament, with four goals so far.

Tonight, the match will decide if history repeats itself, with the young versions of Spain and Italy reenacting what happened in Kiev last summer.

Or maybe Italy will take the trophy home, ending the Spanish supremacy.

The senior squads of Italy and Spain are currently in Brazil, participating in the Confederations Cup, with that final due to be held at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro on June 30.
