Liveblog: Spain v Italy

Join us for all the build-up and action to tonight’s huge World Cup qualifier between Spain and Italy, as the Azzurri face a 68-year taboo.

It kicks off at the Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

These sides are currently locked together at the top of G on 16 points apiece, having both won five and drawn 1-1 in Turin back in October 2016.

The Spaniards have the upper hand on goal difference, so only a victory here is likely to put the Nazionale in a commanding position to avoid that runner-up spot and play-off.

Italy have not beaten Spain on their own soil for 68 years, and that was a 3-1 friendly in Madrid on March 27, 1949.

La Furia Roja have never lost a World Cup qualifier at home, earning 45 victories and nine draws.

The Azzurri are unbeaten in 56 qualifiers between World Cup and Euros, so something’s got to give.
