Spain coach Vincente del Bosque feels Italy will be gunning for revenge when the two sides meet in the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup on Thursday.
The world champions put the Azzurri to the sword in Kiev a year ago with a resounding 4-0 win, and Del Bosque has warned his charges to expect an attempted retaliation from Cesare Prandelli's men June 27.
"For Italy, the semi-finals will serve as a revenge," the 62-year-old told Tele Cinco.
"They will be a very difficult opponent, they're one of the best teams in Europe and the World.
"It's going to be a rematch for them but we want to proceed [to the final]."
La Roja will lock horns with Italy in Fortaleza on Thursday, 24 hours after hosts Brazil take on Uruguay in the first semi-final encounter.
