Spain and Italy met four years ago to determine the European champion, and Monday they'll meet to decide one place in the 2016 quarterfinals.

By virtue of Spain finishing second in its group and Italy coming out on top of its group, the two powerhouses and Euro 2012 finalists meet in the round of 16, where it will be a battle of Spain's possession and precision against Italy's defense, organization and tactical guile. Spain routed the Azzurri in the 2012 final 4-0 to capture its second straight continental title but must overcome Italy again if it is to set sights on a three-peat.
