U21 Euros: Italy open against Spain

Italy begin their European Under-21 Championship against Spain on June 16, then face Poland and Belgium.

The Azzurrini were drawn in the Group of Death this evening, despite being the tournament hosts, and face a very tough route to the semi-finals.

The three group winners qualify along with the best runners-up.

Italy open their campaign against Spain at the Stadio Dall’Ara in Bologna on June 16.

The same arena also hosts the match with Poland on June 19, then it’s over to the Mapei Stadium in Reggio-Emilia for Belgium on June 22.

Although the dates have been confirmed, the venues will only be finalised on December 12.
