Real Madrid defender Fabio Cannavaro believes Italy will be at an advantage should club-mate Raul be left out of the Spain squad for Wednesday´s friendly international between the two nations.

Spain coach Luis Aragones has been roundly criticised for leaving Raul on the sidelines but looks set to omit the 30-year-old once again when he names his squad on Saturday.

"It´s better for us if Raul isn´t there," Cannavaro told Italian sports daily Gazzetta dello Sport.
