Hope you enjoy the live action and good luck with your in-running BETDAQ bets.

At 7.45pm – we’re underway

5 mins: Very tentative starts from both sides with no clear chances. As a result the BETDAQ odds are pretty much frozen from the prices at kick off.

10 mins: Iniesta has another gear and slips into it as he brushes through midfield. The ball is then worked across the edge of the box, but Italy see it out. Spain remain on the front foot, with Fabregas picking out a run from Xavi. He lashes narrowly over the top from the edge of the box.

14 mins:

Spain get an early goal and have definitely started the game the better. Brilliant pass from Iniesta frees Fabregas inside the box. He gets in behind Chiellini and to the by-line. His floated cut back is nodded into an unguarded net by Silva. Spain immediately trade at 1.33 on BETDAQ with the Italians out to 14 and the draw at 5.2.

16 mins: Balotelli leaves it for Pirlo. His effort crashes into the top of the wall and cannons behind. Pirlo tries again and Casillas is almost caught underneath the delivery. He flaps a bit, but sees the ball away on the far side. Whistle goes, Casillas gets a free-kick. De Rossi jumped into him.

21 mins: Chiellini hobbling around and can’t continue. Balzaretti on his place. Was unfortunate not to make the starting XI. Gets his chance now.

25 mins: We’re halfway through the first half and Spain thoroughly deserve their 1-0 lead. They’ve had a couple of half chances and have now setled at 1.29 on BETDAQ

25 mins: Iniesta into the feet of Fabregas, before continuing his run. Fabregas sees him go, but can’t pick out his run. Pique then clatters into Cassano. Diving challenge and he is cautioned.

31 mins: Good movement from Italy, as Cassano tries to find Balotelli. Busquets in the way. Balzaretti is offering an out ball for Italy whenever they are in possession. Spain have no cover down their right.

41 mins:

Another fine finish from Spain as they double their lead. Xavi allowed far too much in midfield and he drifts into the Italy half. Alba races past him and in behind. Perfect pass from Xavi and Alba rolls the ball past Buffon and into the bottom corner. Spain are now 1.09, Italy 60 and the draw 14.

It’s 2-0 to Spain at half time and the Italians troop off the pitch dejected. Spain have shortened even further on BETDAQ and are now 1.06.

The second half in underway

46 mins: Balotelli with what looked like a foul throw, but he gets away with it. Abate is able to win a throw off Alba. The full-back is soon back on the ball and delivering a dangerous cross. He finds the head of Di Natale, who nods over the top. Great chance.

57 mins: Great vision from Pirlo as he lobs a pass over the top of Spain’s defence. Di Natale reads his intention, but the ball has too much on it and he can’t reach it. Spain race forward, but they too are unable to find a way through.

58 mins: Motta on in place of Montolivo. Like-for-like change by Prandelli.

59 mins: Balotelli away from Alba. He finds Di Natale, who has his ankles clipped by Ramos. Free-kick to Italy wide on their right, just outside the box. Pirlo’s floated delivery is pushed clear by Casillas. Balotelli then fires well wide of the target.

60 mins: Silva, the man who broke the deadlock, makes way for Pedro. Silva not too happy with the decision, but Pedro has looked lively in the other games that he has been involved in.

61 mins: Alonso fires at Buffon. He is pulled up, though, for a high boot in the challenge which created the chance. Motta goes down and will require treatment. He is holding his hamstring.

62 mins: Italy have made all of their changes. Motta went down without being touched. Doesn’t look good. Italy might be forced to see out this game with 10 men.

63 mins: Motta off on a stretcher. He is sitting up but heads off straight down the tunnel. Things going from bad to worse for Italy. Surely no way back into this now.

64 mins: Fabregas goes down under an aerial challenge from Bonucci. He is waved back to his feet. Balotelli on the ball, with three red shirts around him. Arbeloa sticks out a leg and concedes a free-kick.

65 mins: Not been Pirlo’s night. His free-kick has too much on it and sails behind for a goal kick. Bonucci goes down at the back post holding his face, but gets nothing. Busquets barely touched him.

66 mins: Fabregas tries to flick the ball on to Iniesta. For once, Spain suffer with crossed wires. Balotelli then handles as he tries to guide Italy out of their own half.

67 mins: Xavi into Fabregas, whose first touch takes him away from goal. He collects the ball and spins past Barzagli. Italy have enough men back to see the danger out.

68 mins: Acres of space for Arbeloa, but his cross its Balzaretti. Italy stuck inside their own half now with no way out. Balotelli drops all the way back to help out and wins a free-kick. Great work rate from Balotelli tonight.

69 mins: Xavi still prepared to close down on the edge of the Italy box. Spain aren’t prepared to take their foot off the gas. They want more.

70 mins: Iniesta dances into box, but Bonucci can hack clear. Italy starting to look tired and they still have 20 minutes to play with 10 men. It’s going to be a long night for the men in blue.

71 mins: Pedro out on the left flank. He looks bright again, but is too keen to get Spain moving and gives the ball away. Spain soon have it back and knock it around in midfield. Italy chasing shadows.

72 mins: Abate allows the ball to roll over his foot and out of play. Sums up Italy’s night. Alba bursting forward again, but he can’t combine with Iniesta. Italy take their time with a throw-in deep inside their own half.

75 mins: Spain become unbackable on BETDAQ as the remaining 1.01 disappears

84 mins:

Four years on from his winner at Euro 2008, Torres is on target in the final again. Perfect end to a perfect night’s work for Spain. Torres drifts into space and once picked out rolls the ball past Buffon and into the bottom corner.

88 mins:

Records continue to tumble as Spain make it four. Torres beats the offside trap once again. Rather than go for goal himself he squares for Mata to roll into an empty net. BETDAQ close the correct score market as ‘any other score’ has been triggered.

Amazing performance from Spain who started the night at 2.17 on BETDAQ. They went to 1.33 after the first goal, 1.09 after the second and were long since unbackable when the third and the fourth goals went in.

Well done to backers of Spain.
